There are some franchises that do not require that you actually have to be involved in the day to day workplace.  These franchises allow you to be a passive owner.  A passive owner means that you can have a manager or other employees doing the work while you are out selling and marketing to grow your business. It all comes down to Item 15 in the Franchise Disclosure Document.  Item 15 describes whether the franchise requires you as an owner to participate in the actual day to day operations of the franchise business.
