Some Say, The Greatest Business Model Ever Created!
SCALE . . .
. . . Up.
Franchising is one of the best ways to scale an existing business.
The formula is simple; take your successful business and duplicate it with others that want to partner with you as franchise owners.
Franchising enables you to share in their success while protecting and growing your brand.
REDUCED . . .
. . . Risk.
By utilizing OPM - other people's money. Franchising by nature reduces the risk for the franchisor.
The franchisee has most of the responsibility for the investment in the franchise; including an initial franchise fee, training costs, equipment and technology purchases, hiring employees, and executing a lease (if a location/store is required).
CHANGE . . .
. . . Hats.
Let's say you own a successful hot dog business.
The hat you wear says - "I am in the hot dog business."
If you decide to offer your hot dog business as a franchise, you have to . . .
CHANGE YOUR HAT.
Your hat now will say - "I am in the franchise business."
You know the hot dog business, but what do you know about franchising it?
