Important Things to Consider


The following items describe some important signs that you need to be aware of when choosing your franchise:

  • Location

Location is everything.

  • Exclusivity

Are you buying an exclusive or non-exclusive right to operate in a specific territory?

  • Size

Would you get lost in a big franchise system?

  • Growth

Fast growing could be good, but will you get enough attention from the franchisor at the beginning when you need it.

  • Quick on its feet

A business that has instituted change in the past few years, for example introducing new technology, or adapting to changing consumer tastes, is a business that is living and growing.

  • Marketing

What marketing collateral will the franchisor provide? You will want to see any TV or print advertisement or listen to radio ads.

  • Slightly damaged

You might consider buying an underperforming outlet that has not proved itself yet. Some franchisees are slack and have difficulty implementing the franchisor’s systems.

  • Affordable

Have a clear idea of how much money you want to invest. Entry prices for franchises vary significantly. You may get into a small coffee franchise for $10,000, but a fitness franchise could cost you $600,000 and a fast food outlet upwards of $1 million to $2 million.
