How does a franchise work?

Franchising is a great way to build and run your own business without the stress of establishing a brand from scratch with little support. Of course, before investing in a franchise business it is important to understand how it works. This is where we can help! Here is a brief overview as to how franchising works and how you can get involved.

Start-up business vs franchise

In short, purchasing a franchise as opposed to starting your own business gives you a head start. This is one of the biggest differences between a new business and a franchise, and quite often the primary factor that draws people towards franchise opportunities. By purchasing a franchise, you are investing in an established brand with a proven business model that offers tried and tested products/services. This reduces risk and gives you support that would not have access to with a new business.

Choosing a franchise for sale that is right for you

With many franchises to choose from, how do you know which is right for you? Important questions to ask yourself when choosing a franchise are: Does it interest me? Does it offer me the lifestyle I’m after? Does it fit in with my long-term goals? If you are answering yes to these questions, it is certainly worth exploring.

It is a common myth that you need prior experience in particular industries or areas of business to run a franchise. Full training is provided by the franchisor so make sure you don’t rule out franchise opportunities based on this.

Once you have established these factors, you will also need to explore the finance side of it. Initial investment and operation costs can vary so this all needs to be taken into consideration before taking the plunge.

What support do you get?

Although the amount of support you would receive varies between franchise models, at Clear Brew, we believe offering our franchisee’s full on-going support is the best way to help them grow their business. From marketing and accounts to general advice, we are always on hand to support our franchise network. All of our franchisees also take part in a training programme which ensures they are fully prepped with all the knowledge and equipment they need to get started.
