Considering franchising your business then do your home work first!

Considering franchising your business then do your home work first!

If you are considering franchising your business model I would recommend that you first research and make yourself well aware of any potential threats that lay out there waiting for you that could cause you and your business severe problems particularly during the early stages of trying to get your franchise business established in the franchise market place.

Some of the main threats as I see them that could cause your new franchise business to stutter or totally collapse around your feet before it as even got off the ground are as follows: -

Have you priced your franchise model at a cost effective but competitive rate?

Continuing growth of existing franchise business competitors.

As well as your business there may well also be a continuing stream of other new franchise business competitors entering into your chosen market place.

A large quantity of independent small companies already trading in your market place might well make your franchise less appealing to potential franchisees.

Low rates of unemployment could mean a limited amount of new entrepreneurs looking for franchise business opportunities.

There are many other potential threats that exist those that I have outlined above are only the tip of the iceberg, please feel free to contribute to my list with any potential threats that you might be aware of that may threaten someone trying to get their new franchise business model off the ground.

Franchise opportunities do your research

Franchise opportunities do your research

Before travelling many miles for an initial meeting with a franchisor to discuss a franchise business opportunity it is important that the prospective franchisee should be able to answer the following important questions.

  • Are you serious about the franchise business opportunity?
  • Do you fit the franchisors franchisee job description/profile?
  • Have you examined other similar franchise business opportunities to build up a good picture of this particular franchise model?
  • Have you thoroughly researched this type of business to gain a good understanding about it?
  • Have you researched the area that you would wish to run a franchise business from to find out what competition already exists there?
  • Do you have any experience that may be of benefit to you within this field of business?
  • Are you cut out for this type of business?
  • How adaptable are you to learning?
  • Is your existing lifestyle suitable for you to able to run the franchise business properly?
  • Do you have the support of your family?
  • Do you have the self motivation required to succeed with your new franchise business?
  • Can you afford the franchise?
  • Could you financially survive for the first few months while the business got itself established?

    All these questions can be answered through doing a little research and I would strongly recommend doing so before arranging an initial meeting with the franchise business owner. You may unfortunately find out that the particular franchise that you were interested in would be unsuitable for you.

    This could save you valuable time in not having to travel many miles to meet up with the franchisor only to be turned away due to your unsuitability.

    Can you think of any others important issues that a potential franchisee should research?
