Proven concepts and financial results make franchising a powerful choice.

Usually a franchise grants an owner the right to market and conduct business using a recognized brand in a designated territory. The established systems allow for a faster start up, leading to a quicker break-even point and better cash flow than a typical new business. Arguably those are key goals for any new business owner.

If you are considering a franchise business, it is essential you understand how that business model works, your alignment to work within the franchise system, the fees involved, and the franchisor’s expectations from you, the franchisee.

Every franchisor expects franchisees to follow established rules and guidelines to ensure a consistent, quality product or service.

Branding
The franchisor has established and proven business plan to make franchise business successful. Franchisor will have heritage and all the required certifications of the products and services and consumers are driven to purchase products and services they can trust. Franchisees offer the familiarity and company reputations customers crave. The company has figured out the sales and marketing mix that will successfully drive customers to your business. Generating customer leads from an proven business model is a major advantage of a franchised business.

Training
The faster you and your team are trained on what to do and how to do it, the greater your success. The franchisor wants you to succeed and provides the training and support necessary to make that happen. With a franchise business, you receive a tried and true road map to success. Learning by trial and error costs, time and money.

Time
Establishing a business from the ground up requires time. Every detail demands focus and study and mistakes can be costly. While independent start-ups can take years to reach critical mass, franchise business typically cut six months to three years from that time, speeding your journey to positive cash flow and operational success.

Established Procedures
If you are new to setting up operations and procedures for a business, you will surely benefit from the established systems and procedures in place with a good franchise business.

Limited Control

If you want to pave your own way and do not want to be bound by established processes and procedures, franchising may not be for you.

HOW FRANCHISING WORKS

Franchise business is most public of business formats. Franchisors carry strong success background and have far-reaching distribution channels, and produce a uniform product. A true franchise business grants the franchisee rights to its trademark, but also provides a complete business blueprint, training in all aspects of the business, and on-going operations and marketing support.

It all Starts with a Good Idea

Every franchise business stems from a business with proven success. When the product or service receives unprecedented interest, the franchisor/company decides to duplicate the successful concept. The success of the resulting franchise businesses depends on the ability to duplicate the concept and distribute the product or service on a large scale.

Global Success
Franchising has developed into a worldwide trend, stimulating entrepreneurship and creating jobs and wealth throughout the world. As one of the strongest mechanisms for growth, franchising is making huge strides in developing countries.

Business Duplication
A strong franchise concept duplicates a good product or service, and that familiarity makes customers feel comfortable and safe making purchases. This consumer trust keeps pressure on the franchise brand to maintain high standards and innovate in order to keep customers happy.

Challenges of Franchising
The biggest challenge lies in acceptance of the franchise system. While franchisees may be attracted to becoming their own boss, they remain contractually bound to the franchisor’s operational guidelines.

The Bottom Line
Franchising taps into a business concept that has already proven itself. The business has an established infrastructure and has already captured the market. Essentially, all the franchisee needs to do is invest in a business, follow the defined format and put in the effort to run the business.
