As you’re exploring options for starting your own business, you’ve probably come across some franchise opportunities. Exactly what is a franchise? Simply put, it’s a way of offering services and/or products by a franchisor with a specific set of guidelines and an existing trademark in place.
When a company has been founded and is doing well by selling its products and/or services, customers grow to know and trust the name, and the demand for the business increases. The business owner then decides to expand the brand and its offerings across geographical locations, selecting candidates to assist in this as franchisees. The company’s founder shares his methods of success — such as business, sales and marketing plans — and allows others to participate. Carefully chosen candidates then establish their own businesses to operate and prosper as part of the franchise.
Becoming a franchisee allows you to be your own boss yet have the sound support and assistance of successful and proven methods in place. You can work for yourself, but by no means are you left by yourself. A network of resources offered by the franchisor will be available to you at all times. For example, technical support, marketing materials and strategies are provided. Co-franchisees are available for assistance and support with any questions or concerns you may have.
When you purchase a franchise business, the franchisor will provide thorough training once you are selected to become part of the organization.
Benefits of Owning a Franchise

Becoming a franchisee eliminates the need for many years of trial and error that often are necessary while trying to succeed in business. Furthermore, a franchise provide you with teammates — the franchisor’s team and other franchisees — from the beginning of your business investment. Becoming part of a winning team is much easier than trying to play the game all alone.
As a franchisee, your success is a priority for everyone involved. Success in your business as a franchisee allows you and everyone involved in the franchise to benefit.
