What Are Your Responsibilities as a Franchise Owner?

What Is Expected of You

Work-Life Balance for Business Owners

As a franchise owner, you have responsibilities to your franchisor, your employees—and yourself! Before you sign on the dotted line, make sure you are ready to meet those expectations.

Responsibilities as a Franchise Owner

1. Act as A Brand Ambassador

You, your employees, and your store location all represent the larger brand. The way a customer feels about a location 500 miles away impacts what they think about your location, and vice-versa. It is expected that you will act in a way that accurately depicts the company as a whole.

2. Operate According to Their Rules

If you would prefer to make your own business decisions, owning a franchise might not be right for you. As part of a franchise, you have an obligation to act according to your franchise agreement. This might impact the way you hire employees, offer services, and the hours you are expected to stay open.

3. Make Money

Of course, the franchisor expects the franchisee to run the business with the tools given and earn money. How the company benefits from your individual success depends on your franchise agreement.

4. Act as a Leader.

As a business owner, it’s your job to be a good leader for your employees. You’ll be required to make the sometimes-tough decisions that lead your location to success.

5. Dedication to the Business.

Being a business owner is not a good choice for the faint of heart. When you decide to become a franchise owner, you need to be ready to put in the work and deal with the good and challenging times—for the sake of yourself, your family, your employees, and your customers.
