What is franchising?
In short – Franchising is a method of marketing goods and/or services to individuals or businesses. This is a relationship between two parties usually called the Franchisor and the Franchisees. The Franchisor grants the rights to the Franchisee to use the branding, system etc. in exchange for fees and royalties. The fees and royalties can vary greatly depending on the type of business/service.
What types of businesses can franchise?
Just about any type of business can be franchised. There are many different types of franchises, these can be a store, kiosk, homebased, man in a van (mobile) and anything in between. All types of products and services from food to fitness, tech to trades, services to sandwiches, retail to restaurants. Franchising is not just about selling products you can also franchise services such as Business to Business service, services direct to consumers even vending machines. The scope of what can be franchised is amazing!
Is my business franchisable?
To find out whether your business is franchisable it is best to talk to an expert – have a chat to us. There are however, a few basic questions which you can answer before you start the process.
- Is my business profitable?
- Can my business be replicated?
- Do I have the right systems/processes in place?
- Do people/businesses buy/need my services/products?
- Would someone else want to run a business like mine?
Don’t worry if you have said no to a couple of the questions above, there are a number of steps you can take to get you on the road to franchising. We can give you the practical help and advice you need. We can also examine the key aspects of your business, these can include processes, systems, marketing, branding, documentation etc. We can support you to develop/organise the areas that may need to be redefine, enhanced or included. If you cut corners or don’t do it properly you could leave yourself open to problems which may prove costly. Establishing a solid foundation on which to build you franchise network/system is so important if you want to get the best possible start.
How do I know if my business is ready to franchise?
We can analyse your business model to ascertain strengths, weaknesses, potential etc. We can determine what is the most practical and viable next step. You may be ready to start the process of franchising straightaway or you may need to “buff around the edges” before you start.
