Purchasing a franchise comes with a whole lot of benefits. Basically, purchasing a franchise means you are purchasing a licensed privilege to offer to open your own sect of a business and offer the same services under the same name. You, as the franchisee, purchase this from the franchisor, who is the owner of the product. You pay an initial start-up fee to open shop and then an agreed upon royalty amount is then paid to the franchisor for the duration of your franchise. So are you ready to make some extra cash?
Why buy a franchise you may ask? Why not start your own business? First off, when you purchase the rights to a franchise, you are starting a business with a well-known name. This makes your marketing significantly easier: people will know the name of the business and product or service offered and may already be willing to use it. Now instead of spending money on marketing your product/service and getting your name out there, you can spend it elsewhere, improving your franchise. In some cases, a franchisor may already have clientele in the area who are ready to do business and were just waiting for a franchise to open up!
Along with the well-known name you also receive a business plan proven to work. A franchise wouldn’t franchise if it wasn’t proven to work. If you were starting your own business you would need to have a business plan, strategies, and build it all from scratch. Purchasing a franchise makes that much easier on you because the franchisor has already created the business plan, its proven to work, and you now just need to implement it.
Another benefit of purchasing a franchise is that you have the backing of a large, well-known business backing you. This means you’ll have a plethora of resources at your fingertips. Many businesses offer 24/7 franchise support and on-site training. The resources from the franchise increase your success rate and allow you to focus on growing the franchise and providing the best product/service and the support from the franchisor allows you to focus on increasing your profit margins.
Do all these benefits sound like something you want to be a part of? Then maybe it’s time to become a franchise owner! Do your research, make sure to find a franchise that you can fall in love with. If it isn’t something you can put your heart into, it’ll be hard to find the drive you need to succeed.
