Why do people buy franchises?
Buying a franchise gives you the opportunity to run your own business, along proven methods and possibly in an industry in which you have no previous experience. The variety of types of business and levels of investment on offer is enormous, and it is important, therefore that you take your time and do your homework first. Although the failure rate in franchising is much lower than that in many other new businesses – 95% of franchisees in 2000 reported profitability – there are still risks involved, and it will be very hard work, particularly in the first years.
What rights do I buy?
In buying a business format franchise, you are buying the right to run a system that someone else has proved will work. You have the benefits of trading under what may be a very well recognised brand name. There should also be on-going support from the franchisor, and an agreement, setting out the terms of payment, and the obligations of both parties.
What should I do?
You should research the company fully and be sure to speak to existing franchisees. First and foremost, you must ensure that it is a business that suits you – it is going to take up a lot of your time that you may not have. You have to be realistic about the amount of money you need to make, and choose a business that should cover that. Like any other business, a common reason for a franchise to fail is too much money being taken out too early.
What training is there?
We provide one to one training, where we physically work, develop and establish your area with you. We believe this, combined with our dedicated support team, presents an exceptional opportunity for the right people.
Before considering taking this opportunity any further, it is worthwhile for you to take the time to consider if franchising is indeed the right option for you. Please consider the following points carefully before deciding to continue
Am I able to operate under someone else's guidelines?
As a franchisee you would be working within a clearly defined set of procedures and codes of practice. The Franchisor sets the standards, rules and regulations and although you may have a degree of input into these, it is the Franchisor who defines the operating systems. Although you will own your own business, you will not be free to run it however you wish, but rather be subject to the Franchisor’s rules, which are reasonable and designed to benefit the entire chain of franchise owners.
Do I realise that the franchisor is not responsible for my success?
You will receive a great deal of support from the Franchisor and the support team, but your success ultimately depends on your own commitment and drive. It is in the Franchisor’s best interests for you to do well and your success will be positive for the entire Spouting-on-the-Spot group. You can expect them to provide a high level of support and ncouragement, but at the end of the day it is your business.
Am I fully committed to providing the highest level of service to customers?
The reason a Spouting-on-the-Spot franchise is a recipe for success is that it provides systems and support to overcome many of the weaknesses and negatives homeowners perceive in the building trades.
You can only succeed with a Spouting-on-the-Spot franchise business if you are truly committed to customer service and to being so much better than the independent operators in your area.
