Key advantages of buying a franchise
by Tony Urwin, FDS
I regularly get asked what the key benefits of buying a franchise over starting a business from scratch are. I have listed below just some of the key benefits of buying a franchise:
- A tried and tested methodology for you to follow
- A known brand rather than one which has no track record
- The advice guidance and support of the Franchisor acting as a management consultant to the business
- Greater chance of obtaining bank finance
However, do be aware that not all franchises are equal. Make sure that you research the opportunity and the Franchisor thoroughly before making a commitment and parting with money.
