Both franchise and independent business model have their pros and cons. Franchise does give you a proven business model, brand recognition and operating processes. However, as you mentioned, it comes with the price of freedom.

My recommendation is if you are new to business and just starting out go with the franchise model. It will give you opportunity to learn without having to take too much risk.
