Frequently Asked Questions
Franchising offers individuals the opportunity to be in business for themselves, but not by themselves. The franchisor offers support, experience, and knowledge of all aspects of the business. They have been there so they know what challenges can arise and the best ways to overcome them. When you join a franchise concept, you get to “stand on the shoulders” of all those who came before you.
Franchisors provide you with the tools to be successful. They will train you prior to your opening. They give you advertising and marketing support that can help build your business. Most importantly, a franchise reduces your risk with systems proven to work. Their training and support help you handle whatever comes up along the way.
We want to match you with the best franchise concept that meets your specific criteria. But we can’t do that unless we know what those criteria are. We learn these criteria by asking you questions designed to help us narrow our search and provide you with the best matches. Here are a few examples of the type of questions we may ask you:
- What is attracting you to business ownership?
- Have you owned your own business before?
- How many hours and what time of day do you like to work?
- Do you like selling or customer service?
- Is there a certain location you desire?
- How does managing people make you feel?
- What kind of capital do you have available to start your business?
- Is a recognized brand name important to you?
- Do you want to have more than one location?
- When do you want to open your business?
Once we have answers to these types of questions, we will create a personal profile for you and use it to research franchise options. The consultation process makes it easier to match you with the opportunities that meet your specific criteria. We will narrow down the choices to a short list of franchises. With just a few opportunities to evaluate, you save a lot of time and effort.
