Pilot business operation

For any business person that is looking into and seriously considering franchising his or her business model it is essential that they should operate at least one pilot business operation in a different part of the country to where their existing business is currently operating to ascertain that their business model will truly work successfully in different regions of the country.

The results that they gain through running their pilot business operation or business operations will help them to truly evaluate whether their business model is a truly franchisable proposition!

If you are a potential franchisee looking at buying a franchise business be careful to research if the company that you are interested in buying a franchise from ran a pilot business operation before they started franchising out their business system, not every company does, be warned!

Most franchise companies although have run a pilot scheme in their early days, and just for the record this is one business that most definetly did hmmmmm wink

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.

Trademark Registration Protect Your Logo

Trademark Registration Protect Your Logo

 

If you ever consider franchising your business then I can not stress how important that it is to register your companies trademark. If you forget or just do not bother to register your trademark with the patent office then as your company grows other companies in a similiar line of business to your company might well realize that you haven’t protected your trademark and try to gain some benefit from it for their own company.

Once you have registered your trademark and your franchise business grows so will the value of your trademark and brand.

 

I can not stress enough how important this is!

 

Do not get caught out!

A definition of Franchising

Franchising (from the French for honesty or freedom) is a method of doing business wherein a franchisor licenses trademarks and tried and proven methods of doing business to a franchisee in exchange for a recurring payment, and usually a percentage piece of gross sales or gross profits as well as the annual fees. Various tangibles and intangibles such as national or international advertising, training, and other support services are commonly made available by the franchisor, and may indeed be required by the franchisor, which generally requires audited books, and may subject the franchisee or the outlet to periodic and surprise spot checks. Failure of such tests typically involve non-renewal or cancellation of franchise rights.

A business operated under a franchise arrangement is often called a chain store, franchise outlet, or simply franchise
