There are several advantages to operating in the franchise market, including some recession-resistant brands with modest start-up and overhead costs. Working your own hours and making your own decisions may also improve the quality of your life.
Recently, I did a brief Q and A with one of my successful franchisees. Here is what she had to say.
Question: What were the top three things (characteristics) you were looking for in a business?
Answer: The three main factors I was searching for were profit, a business I could be passionate about, and a franchisor with whom I could collaborate with.
I became increasingly comfortable with you because you are extremely knowledgeable and have answers to all of my questions. One of the things that made working with you more comfortable was that you also owned the same franchise, so you were fully aware of the entire process and could speak from personal experience.
Question: Do you think you would have found this business without my help/guidance?
Answer: I would not have discovered this business without your assistance, and I am glad that you brought this franchise into my life and introduced me to a brand that I am so enthusiastic about.
Question: What did you think about the unique perspective I gave to you being an experienced multiple-unit franchisee?
Answer: Because you spoke from your own personal experiences with the franchise, your own experience aided me along this journey. You were aware of the entire procedure and outlined everything for me so that I was always informed of what to expect.
Question: Now that you have gone through my process, What advice would you have for someone that is thinking about owning a franchise?
Answer: I would advise someone searching for a franchise to have an open mind throughout the entire process. Initially, I planned to invest in a single-unit food franchise, but with your assistance, you opened my eyes to a new business that is taking over.
