Do these numbers add up for you?
Choosing a franchise needs careful consideration when it comes to the features that are most important to you and will give you the greatest satisfaction from running your own business.
In your working life, what are the things you enjoy most and which franchise options will enable you to spend most time doing them?
How much do you want to invest? What’s your budget and how can you get the best value from the various options on offer?
What plans do you have for your venture into franchising? Is it important that you choose a franchise you can grow and develop or is it more about getting the lifestyle you want or maybe a mixture of both?
Are you building a business for future generations? Do you want to build a framework that enables you to hand it over when the time is right?
These are all crucial questions and you need to work through what is important to you and develop a process that helps you decide which franchise to choose.
Sales and income
But what’s even more fundamental than many of the questions you will ask yourself is what you can expect from a franchise in terms of sales and income. After all, it’s not just about the dreams and aspirations you have, but about the hard facts of what the franchise will deliver for you. Most, if not all, franchises will offer you full support and training. The majority will have a great network of individuals who support each other. Some will offer fantastic products or services that you really want to sell.
