Should You Franchise Your Business?

Should You Franchise Your Business?

When a local business begins seeing success in not only its location, and niche market, but beyond that, it may consider opening a second shop nearby or perhaps even in the next town over. When the success continues to grow and word of mouth has reached further distances, a franchise is often the most natural and appropriate next step. A franchise is a business that has multiple locations that are independently owned and operated. Encompassing any industry, market and need, any business can become a franchise.

There are a number of benefits to franchising your business - benefits that go beyond financial and personal. Your franchise will open up entrepreneurial opportunities for other aspiring small business owners. Your franchise can create jobs and guarantee the management team in franchise locations can tap into your experience and expertise to grow in business, but not as a competitor. The hard work of building the customer base and market position has already been done, now it is time to reap the royalties.

Speaking of an existing customer base, customer loyalty can often guarantee the success of future franchise openings. This means that those who may travel to visit your shop or restaurant may be eager to be closer to a new location. An established customer base means your franchise is more likely to turn a profit quickly and efficiently.

Furthermore, although you are the owner, each franchise has its own managerial team. This means that you are reaping the profitable benefits of owning a small (or even large) business without having to stretch yourself too thin. The training and day to day logistics are handled individually by each location. Meanwhile, the overall integrity of your brand remains the same.
