Reasonable Expectations for Franchisors

There are so many things that go into making your decision to be a business entrepreneur. Before you can come to your final conclusion, you will need all of the information you can get to help you make the best decision for yourself and your family. Be sure to find out these things before opening a franchise.

5 Things You Need to Know Before Opening a Franchise

  1. What the franchise agreement includes to help you succeed. Do you have access to mentors, free marketing materials, and a website? Or will you be responsible for those things on your own or for an additional cost?
  2. How many franchisors leave. Imagine a franchise that has 100/100 successful locations. Sounds great, right? But what if 50 of those locations had owners who left after five years? That points to franchisee unhappiness.
  3. How quickly other franchisors find success. You’ll want to know realistically when you will reach your goals. One year? Five? 10!? Success differs for everyone, so be sure to ask using specifics.
  4. What exactly the franchisor expects from you. Some franchisors have things they are not willing to be flexible about, sometimes down to the font used to communicate with customers. Ask ahead of time to ensure these are things you are okay leaving up to the franchisor.
  5. What your competition is like in your immediate area. There will always be business competition, but a franchisor should not expect you to compete with another franchisee.
