Three Ways Franchisee Collaboration Can Spur Success
In any business, collaborating with industry peers can be a great way to gain valuable insights and improve your own operations. This is especially true when working within a franchise system. Franchisees from across the country can share ideas and best practices via a variety of channels including company intranet, services such as Slack, and quarterly and annual franchise conferences and meetings, fostering a sense of community and helping strengthen each branch. Here are three benefits of franchisee collaboration that we’ve seen across the AtWork system over the years:
A Culture of Innovation: When the sharing of ideas and best practices is encouraged and facilitated among the franchise system from the corporate level good ideas are inevitably shared and often applied to each branch, leading to a culture of innovation in which all team members—corporate staff, franchise owners and their staffs—feel that their ideas can lead to tangible improvements.
Development of New Strategies: Again related to the free sharing of ideas and information, new sales and operational strategies tend to bubble to the surface within a franchise system that encourages collaboration.
A Stronger Brand: When franchisees collaborate with one another there is not only a sense of camaraderie that can strengthen the brand, but also an enhanced pride and desire to care for the brand itself and its assets. For AtWork, this has led to greater brand consistency across the country, enhancing consumer awareness in our target markets.
It’s easy to see that franchisee collaboration can play a major part in the ongoing success of a franchise system.
