Three Advantages of Joining a Franchise vs. Starting from Scratch
With the economy continuing to build strength, now is a great time to take the leap into starting your own business. With the exception of perhaps facing some recruiting difficulties due to record low unemployment, the time is certainly right; the stock market is strong, as is consumer confidence, and startup capital can be obtained more easily than at perhaps any time since the Great Recession. However, starting a business is never a walk in the park, especially if you’re starting from scratch. As such, to get off the ground and profitable more quickly, many entrepreneurs are turning to the franchise model. Here are three advantages of such a move:
Get rid of the guess work: Franchisors have spent years building and tweaking their business in order to maximize franchisee success. Business processes, vendors, branding, and other key elements will already be in place when you sign on. Additionally, many franchisors also offer assistance with site selection, marketing, and other key aspects of the business in order to give the franchisee every possible opportunity for success.
Small business, big network: When you purchase a franchise opportunity you are not just buying a business. You’re also joining a network of professionals who share the goal of building a strong brand that will help them succeed individually. Most franchisees find that their fellow owners across the country are quick to share ideas and best practices and help out how they can to ensure the success of their peers.
You don’t absolutely need industry experience: Though this may not hold true for every opportunity that’s out there, many franchisors, such as AtWork, have built such robust programs that even newbies from outside their particular industry can join the system and receive detailed training allowing them to jump in head first and begin to work toward profitability!
A franchise opportunity can be a great move if you’re an entrepreneur that would like to either explore opportunities in a new field or focus on growing the business out of the gate, vs. having to spend time creating and building the brand.
