3 Myths About Joining a Staffing Franchise
Although more entrepreneurs than ever are choosing to purchase franchise over developing their own business concept, many myths still persist. However, many of the apprehensions and myths surrounding the franchise process are easy to debunk. Here are three of the most common:
1: The start-up process is too expensive. Although starting any new business can become an expensive venture, some people are under the false impression that starting up a franchise is at the top of the cost spectrum. This belief is often the result of the franchise fee that is owed to the franchisor to buy in to the system. However, this myth simply doesn’t ring true. In fact, as with the AtWork opportunity, the overall cost to join a franchise can be significantly less than going it alone when all of the incidental charges, necessary software, consulting services, and other items that are covered by franchisors are considered.
2: You must have industry experience to succeed. Though industry experience is never a bad thing, the fact is that the franchise model offers all of the tools necessary for success if the formula is followed. Franchisors have spent years perfecting their models and know the steps to take throughout the opening process, and beyond, in order to become profitable. Additionally, most franchisors offer both ongoing training for franchisees at all levels of development as well as customized tools, marketing support, and dedicated development staff to help even newcomers learn their industry and succeed.
3: Franchisees have limited freedom to operate their businesses. Though it’s true that when you buy into a franchise you are purchasing an established brand and should follow the brand guidelines as the business grows, the fact is that franchisees have a great amount of freedom when it comes to business development activities, marketing, and more. In fact, many franchisors such as AtWork encourage creative ideas and problem solving among their franchisees and provide support as the ideas develop, often rolling the best initiatives out to the entire franchise system.
Though purchasing a franchise inherently lessens the workload during start-up, it by no means constrains the franchisee or limits their ability to grow a thriving business.
