The Beginners Guide To Options (Chapter 1)
Benefits to Enter the World of Franchising The main advantages for several companies that enter the realm of franchising include the speed of growth, capital, motivated management and also risk reduction but there are many other things too. The very common barrier to expansion that is faced by the small businesses today is the lack of access to the capital. Prior to credit tightening of 2008-2009 and also the new normal which ensued, entrepreneurs usually found that the growth goals outstripped such ability to fund them. Actually, franchising is another form of capital acquisition and such provides some benefits. The main reason why many entrepreneurs go for franchising is the fact that this would allow them to expand without the risk of cost of equity or debt. The franchisee would provide the capital needed to open as well as operate a unit and this is going to allow the company to grow by using resources and many more. Through the use of money of other individuals, the franchisor can grow unfettered by debt. Moreover, since the franchisee is the one to sign the lease and also commit to various contracts, franchising would permit expansion with no contingent liability. This would minimize the risk to the franchisor. This means that as the franchisor, you don’t just require less capital in which to expand but the risk is actually limited to the capital which you invest in developing the franchise company. Such is an amount that is often less than the cost of opening another company-owned location.

Also, you can benefit from motivated management that is another advantage. You should know that another stumbling blocks which face a lot of entrepreneurs who like to expand is looking and retaining good unit managers. The business owner would spend many months finding and training a new manager and would just see them leave after or become hired by a competitor. The hired managers are employees who may have such commitment to their work that makes supervising the work from a distance a big challenge.

However, franchising would allow the business owner to overcome the problems through substituting the owner for the manager. There is no individual who is more motivated than one who is actually invested in the success of the operation. A franchisee would be the owner and his life’s savings is invested in the business. The compensation will come largely through profits. A combination of such factors will have various positive effects on the unit level performance. By franchising, the franchisor is able to function effectively with a much leaner organization. Since the franchises would assume various responsibilities that are shouldered by the corporate home office, the franchisors may leverage the effort to reduce overall staffing.
