If you have a successful business with a good reputation then expanding it through the franchise model is a good option for you. Many people ask us how they can walk on this route. We have an answer for them. Here is a list of things you must keep in mind before franchising your business.
- Organize the data
You must have proper written documents to help the franchisees understand your business well. Apart from that, make sure that you note down all the other information that you would want to share with them.
- Hire a lawyer
Legal work is very important when it comes to franchising. You need to decide what rights you want to give to the franchisees, what will be the implications if they violate any rule, so on and so forth.
- Hire a consultant
People generally approach Franchisors through consultants. Let the top consultants in the market know that you are looking for franchisees for your business.
- Chose carefully
Don’t just choose anybody who shows interest in your business. Do a thorough background check of the franchisees. Ensure that they are worthy enough to hold the privileges of your brand.
- Chose right locations
Your franchisee outlets should be opened in customer-friendly areas. In the beginning, you can try to focus on your home state, with time you can expand to other areas.
- Make a plan
Plan in advance. How many franchisees you want to sell, where you want to sell them, what profits are you expecting, etc. Unless you have a plan, you won’t have anything to compare the results with.
- Support the franchisees
Help your franchisees in whatever way you can. Provide them with training facilities, stay in constant touch with them, take and give regular feedback. Work as a team.
Once you have 5-6 successful franchisees, your business will begin to grow at a much faster rate.
