Track Record of Success

Any good franchise company has developed a method of doing business that works well and produces successful results. The proof is in the financial statements.

Strong Brand

One of the biggest advantages of franchising is that the company is building a brand on a  regional or national basis that should have value in the eyes of customers you’re trying to attract. Make sure you purchase a brand that is well known in your area.

Training Programs

A good franchise must be able to provide you with easy to following training manuals.

Ongoing Operational Support

Franchise companies have staff dedicated to providing assistance to franchisees. You are in business for yourself, but not by yourself.

Marketing Assistance

All franchisees will be paying money monthly into a marketing “pot.” You will want to make sure that the money that is being spent on marketing includes promoting your location.

Economies of Scale

There are cost advantages that enterprises obtain due to size, output, operation, with cost per unit of output generally decreasing with increasing scale as fixed costs are spread out over more units of output. In simple terms, all locations order together and therefore receive large discounts.

Questions & Answers

What is franchising?

Franchising is a method of distributing products or services.  The franchisor lends his trademark or trade name and a proven business system. The franchisee pays a royalty and an initial fee for the right to do business under the franchisor’s name and system. The goal of any franchise should be to create a win-win situation for both parties.

How does a franchise chain start?

If someone starts a restaurant and the restaurant is busy all the time, it makes sense to think of expanding. If the entrepreneur still wants to expand but does not have the capital or time to operate additional stores himself or herself, he or she may decide to “franchise” the store name and business system to an independent business person known as a franchisee. In return, the entrepreneur may ask for an initial fee and/or a continuing royalty payment based on a percentage of that franchisee’s sales. This is how McDonalds, Tim Horton’s and all the other large franchises started, with one successful location.

Checklist before buying a franchise:

  2. A complete understanding of the business;

  5. How other franchisees in the same system are doing;
  6. How much it’s going to cost to get into the franchise;
  7. How much you’re going to pay for the continuing right to operate the business;
  8. If there are any products or services you must buy from the franchisor and how and by whom they are supplied.
  9. The terms and conditions under which the franchise relationship can be terminated or renewed, and how many franchisees have left the system during the past few years;
  10. The financial condition of the franchisor and its system.
