How Does a Franchise Work in 2020?


Does starting a business from scratch sound scary? Or is buying a business not appealing?            

Well, a franchise could be perfect for YOU.

The premise of a franchise is to buy into an existing brand. A fee is paid to the franchisor and in return the franchisee gains the use of a trademark, established brand, and operates using the business’s proven systems – with ongoing support to help them succeed.

In short, being a franchisee means you run your business under the name of an existing business and sell an existing product or service. This is perfect for entrepreneurs that want a good return on their investment and to start earning cash in a short period of time!

The Freedom of Franchising!

  • Entry into a business network of experienced professionals
  • A foundation to grow your business
  • Becoming part of a recognisable brand
  • No business experience needed
  • Higher rate of success than independent start-ups
  • Return on investment in year 1

Becoming a franchisee has lots of benefits that entrepreneurs starting out alone do not have. Franchisees often avoid start-up mistakes because they are using a system that has been created and adapted through trial and error; the franchisor has already made the mistakes so that you don’t have to.

The positives that franchising can offer aspiring entrepreneurs also includes buying power on brand advertising and promotions – purchasing as part of a collective gives you more room to make profit in the products that you sell.

Becoming a successful franchisee also provides you the opportunity to grow your business and expand into a bigger territory; it’s common for successful franchisees to own multiple outlets.
