Are there aggressive sales tactics used in this business?

NO! Franchising is not a sales business - it's a mutual discovery process. Good franchises are not sold - they are awarded. Only when both parties feel there is strong potential for success does anyone begin to consider investing in the franchise. "Selling" a franchise to a less than ideal candidate is generally a recipe for failure for both franchisee and franchisor. Aggressive sales techniques is not how winning franchisors are built.
