Are you a successful entrepreneur deciding whether to franchise your business? If so, you’ve come to the right place. Accurate Franchising has been helping business owners like you break into the franchising world for more than 30 years! All of our experience has given us a pretty clear idea of what franchisors need to be prepared. Below are a few questions you should ask yourself to get an idea of your readiness to franchise your business.
Can My Business Model Be Replicated in Other Places?
When you become a franchisor, you’ll share more than just your brand name with your franchisees – they’ll also want access to the business model that made you successful. In order to become a great franchisor, it’s important that your business model is transferable, and isn’t highly-contextualized to your existing location. For instance, if you sell a product that is extremely popular in a specific region (such as a local food favorite), franchisors in other regions may be wary of introducing your brand to a market that’s unfamiliar with what you have to offer.
Am I Prepared to Support My Franchisees?
Franchising is a great business model because it allows franchisors to expand the brand while keeping most of the responsibility for operations on franchisees. However, franchisors need to provide support to their franchisees in order to help them succeed. To be a great franchisor, you should be enthusiastic about helping franchisees implement your business model, and about teaching them the tips and tricks of your trade. If you’re excited about supporting your franchisees as they expand your brand, you might just be ready to franchise your business.
Am I Dedicated to Franchise Development?
Accurate Franchising provides franchisors with the guidance they need in order to prepare their business for franchising. We’ll help you undergo franchise development, a “makeover” of your business that prepares you to become a franchisor. This process requires work on both of our parts. For instance, we’ll help you to strengthen your company’s branding, making it clear who you are and what you have to offer franchisees. We’ll also help you to develop a training program, including curriculum and other resources. Tasks like these will help you be a well-prepared franchisor with an attractive business model for franchisees. Make sure you’re ready to commit your time and resources to franchise development!
