If your initial one, two, three or six locations have been successful, you likely have dreams of expansion and rightfully expect that your business concept will work anywhere.
There are several methods of expanding and the franchising model is extremely popular. It provides a path to rapid expansion and brand recognition as the franchisees take on owner’s duties with regard to funding capital, staffing – hiring, training, ongoing management and other daily operations. In exchange for your operational systems, marketing expertise, sales and product training and support, you have a motivated team of business cheerleaders that push as hard as you do for continued success.
However, the process of turning your business into a franchise is involved, complicated and can be expensive. It needs to cover a whole host of tasks and strategic decisions that will govern how you operate the franchise rollout. It also requires a switch in your thinking – how do you run the franchise expansion vs how do you run your day-to-day business.
For all these considerations, the franchising model is not the right fit for all businesses.
