Why should I buy a franchise?
The most significant benefit to franchising is the reduced level of risk. This comes from the franchise system’s proven method of doing business. Franchising offers individuals the opportunity to be in business for themselves, but not by themselves. The franchisor is there to provide support with all the different functions of the business. They have seen the issues that can arise in their business and know how to deal with any problems effectively. They provide extensive initial training and support so you’re well prepared to handle whatever comes your way and, ultimately, reach your personal and financial goals faster than you may be able to on your own.

Is financial assistance available?
Financing can be a major hurdle for any potential franchisee. Start-up costs can be high and it is essential that the franchisee has adequate working capital. It is important to address any financing issues during the investigation of franchise opportunities.
Our franchise partners are experienced with this issue and many offer financing options. We can assist you with exploring the financing options that are available to you.
Do I need specific industry experience to successfully own a franchise?
No. In fact, most franchisees have had no experience in the industry that they choose to purchase in. Franchisors want their franchisees to work on the business and not in the business. Franchisees are managers, rather than workers. Franchisors need people who can be effective in areas such as managing and motivating employees, generating sales, and running the day-to-day operations as effectively as possible.
How soon can I get my business started?
This depends almost entirely on you. Our consulting process can be completed easily within a few days if you are motivated. Once you begin investigating different franchise opportunities, most clients can find a great match for them within one to three months. After you select the right business for you, it will typically take anywhere from 2 weeks to 6 months for your actual business to open for operation.
