Will a franchisor help me find, fit out and furnish premises?
Not all franchises are premises based and those that are often do not require retail premises. If a franchise requires a franchisee to have commercial office premises, there is a large stock available and franchisees normally do not need any assistance from their franchisor. In a retail franchise the right premises may be difficult to find and, of course, the franchisor knows or ought to know what works for its particular franchise, so very often franchisors do get involved in the process so as to make sure franchisees do not make a mistake. For those franchisors that are involved in selecting premises, often they have nominated architects, shopfitters, builders and property lawyers they either recommend or require franchisees to use. Franchisors should make the process as simple as possible and that also usually involves using the franchisor’s commercial agents to find, or assist in finding, the premises for the business. Sometimes franchisors go even further and take a lease on the premises in their own name and then grant a sub lease to franchisees. Often franchisees are newly incorporated businesses who simply don’t have a sufficient track record to satisfy landlords of prestige premises that they would be good for the rent and in those circumstances franchisors may have to step in. Having said that, this practice is becoming less common because franchisors generally do not want to be landlords. Q I’m considering franchising my business, which has been established for 10 years, in order to grow it nationally.
