Which Is Right for You?

What You Need to Know Before Joining a Franchise

“Franchise” is a broad term used to describe a business relationship in which a company grants an individual or group to carry out specific commercial activities and act as an agent for a company’s products and services. There are many you might think of, like fast-food restaurants, hotels, and car dealerships. So, when you’re considering joining a franchise, do you know which of the franchise types is right for you?

Franchise Types: Which Is Right for You?

1. Business Format Franchise

When you think of a franchise, a business format is probably the one you imagine. With this type, you receive the systems, products, and marketing materials that allow you to fit in seamlessly with the brand. Fast food, retail, and fitness establishments are popular business format franchises. This might be the right choice for you if you want access to a franchisor’s business model and you want a well-known, household name.

2. Distribution Franchise

This is a supplier-dealer relationship where the franchisee distributes the franchisor’s products. These are usually big-brand names. Some examples include GoodYear Tires and Chrysler. This franchise type likely doesn’t come with the same formula and rules as the business franchise type, so it could be right for you if you want more control.

3. Job Franchise

This type of franchise is usually a small, home-run business that offers services (not goods) to customers. Examples include lawn care services, real estate, travel agencies, and companies like JDog Carpet Cleaning and Floor Care and JDog Junk Removal. This could be a good option for you if you want to get started at a low cost and be part of a smaller organization.
