FAQs

We're here to answer your questions.

What is franchising?

Franchising is a business strategy for expanding a company where the franchisor (the original business owner) licenses its brand, products, services, and operational methods to a franchisee, who operates under the franchisor's trade name and system. This arrangement allows the franchisor to grow its market presence with lower capital investment and reduced risk, while the franchisee benefits from operating under an established brand with ongoing support​​​​.

Why franchise?

Franchising offers a pathway to business ownership under an established brand, reducing the risk associated with starting a new business from scratch. It provides access to a proven business model, brand recognition, and a support system that includes training, marketing, and operational assistance. This framework can lead to faster startup times, potentially higher success rates, and the ability to leverage the franchisor's existing customer base and reputation​​​​.

How to franchise?

To franchise a business, the franchisor must develop a franchising model that includes determining the franchise fee, ongoing royalties, training programs, operational manuals, and support systems. For potential franchisees, the process involves researching franchising opportunities, evaluating the fit with their goals and capabilities, securing financing, and entering into a franchise agreement that outlines the terms of the business relationship, including fees, territory rights, and operational guidelines​​​​.

Franchising Costs

Franchising costs vary widely depending on the franchise system and can include an initial franchise fee, ongoing royalties, marketing fees, and other operational costs. Initial investments can range from relatively low for smaller, less established franchises to very high for well-known brands. Franchisees must also consider costs associated with leasing or purchasing property, equipment, inventory, and hiring staff​​​​.

Services Provided

Franchisors provide a range of services to franchisees, including training, operational support, marketing and advertising assistance, site selection, and design and layout of the premises. These services are designed to help franchisees establish their business quickly and effectively, maintain brand standards, and optimize their chances of success​​​​.

Franchise Development

Franchise development involves the franchisor's activities to expand the brand through franchising. This includes creating a franchising model, marketing the franchise to potential franchisees, providing training and support to new franchisees, and continually improving and updating the franchise system to remain competitive and meet changing market demands​​​​.

Growth is the one thing no one regrets.
