How to Get Past the Fear of the Franchise
There is a multitude of fantastic reasons to purchase a franchise business, but many prospective franchisees remain in fear of the possibility. At Kitchen Tune-Up we’ve had numerous conversations with prospective franchisees as they decide whether or not to invest in our business. We understand the apprehension that many have, and we are clear with the commitment a Kitchen Tune-Up franchise requires and the incredible opportunities it provides.
Our best advice for prospective franchisees includes:
Do your research - Investing in a franchise system without proper research is an oversight that can cause headaches and potential business failure down the road. You need to understand the business and your role as a franchisee. Take the time to research and ensure all of your questions are answered.
Invest in a company you believe in - Before selecting a franchise business to invest in you should ensure it is something you believe in. Are you passionate about the business? Does it fit your personal and professional strengths? Can you see yourself operating this franchise 5, 10, or 20 years in the future?
Seek out others’ opinions - If you are anxious about the commitment required of franchise owners ask to speak to others that have already made the investment in the business model. Spend time listening to other franchisees and ask questions to help relieve any possible fear of the franchise.
Be realistic - Like everything in life, you get back what you put in. Know that in the beginning, your business will need time and attention, as well as an investment in marketing. Franchises are comprised of best practices and procedures. Your best chance of success is to follow the plan outlined and stay connected to the franchise system.
