Why buy a franchise?

Franchising is a business model that allows individuals like yourself to enjoy the rewards of owning your own business without the headaches and complications of starting from scratch. The “franchisor” creates and provides all the tools you need to successfully operate your franchised business. This includes initial training in the industry and particular business model, marketing and business development tools, operational support, administrative assistance and continued development of the brand and service. All the guesswork of operating your business is gone! You are essentially purchasing a ‘business in a box’, in which you combine the franchisor’s proven method of operation with your own unique skill set to create success. As a franchisee you are in business for yourself-but not by yourself. Industry statistics bear out the advantages of franchised business ownership. Over a five year period eighty percent (80%) of independently owned and operated businesses are bankrupt. The converse is true of franchised businesses as the success rate over the same five year period is over eighty five percent (85%)! Why is this so you ask? Because by providing the business owners with all the necessary tools and removing the time consuming task of creating them, franchisees enjoy the unique benefit of being able to devote 100% of their time to providing an outstanding customer experience. This is how ‘goodwill’ is generated in franchising-each franchisee using the tools and systems provided to build the brand name for each other and create success for all involved.
