Franchise Size: Which Is Right for You?

The Pros and Cons of Different Opportunities


Franchise Size: Which Is Right for You?

So, you’ve decided you want to open up a franchise location. Are you ready to take on a household name, or would you rather stay small? Read on to find out the pros and cons of each franchise size to help you decide which is right for you.

Which Franchise Size Is Right for You?

Small

Pros

These franchises aren’t as well-known as the big names you think of when you think about franchising opportunities. In fact, a customer might not even know they are visiting a store that’s a franchise at all! This allows you to operate more as a small business and part of the community than a big franchise. You likely have more opportunities for control over how you run your business and represent yourself (but be sure to read the franchise agreement to find out). Plus, there’s a good chance the start-up costs are lower.

Cons

Because your business might not be a household name, you’ll have to establish yourself in the community you’re serving. This might include ramped-up efforts upfront. There also might not be as established of a brand, and you might be responsible for your own marketing materials.

Large

Pros

This is the most well-known franchising system. Examples include fast food, retail, and fitness establishments. These are usually big-brand names. Some examples include Goodyear Tires and Chrysler. As part of a household-name business, members of your community will already know who you are before they walk into or call your business. Plus, because it’s a national brand that needs to stay consistent, you will likely have everything provided for you so you blend in.

Cons

When it comes to a large franchise, there is very little room for you to take control. Everything down to the font you use is probably predetermined for you. Because of its size, the competition for large franchises tends huge. How many fast-food restaurants do you have around you? Your consumers have the same options. Plus, as one of thousands of franchisees, the company may not be as invested in the success of your specific location.
