A recent article from the Wall St. Journal online discusses something I thought I would never see from a franchisor: A money back guarantee

Others are not convinced and warn to investigate the details carefully in the Franchise Disclosure Document.  

Thanks to Joel Libava for pointing out the article.  Joel is a franchise consultant from Cleveland,Ohio that publishes an extraordinary amount of content regarding franchising.  Both the good and the ugly.  And never dispassionately.  Be sure to check out his Web sites if you have an interest in franchising.
