So you want to run a business, but you’re not sure you have the means to start from the very bottom. Well, there is a way to develop a business without having to begin from square one. Franchising sees a company – a franchisor – letting someone buy the rights to use their branding and other assets to develop a new location for that business. This is a popular means of getting into entrepreneurship! Here’s why franchising could be right for you.
You’ll have more control
Is it accurate to say that you’ll be “your own boss” if you get into franchising? Well, yes and no. No because you still have responsibilities to the franchisor, the overarching authority of the brand, who will need you to meet certain expectations. But, by and large, you’ll be left to your own devices to accomplish this. You won’t have to deal with nitty-gritty or over-controlling managers and complex organizational structures. You’ll have much more control over your professional life.
Branding and a customer base are already there
Even when you’re opening up your very first location using the franchise, you’ll already have a lot of branding elements – such as logos and color schemes – as well as a loyal customer base. You don’t have to create a new customer base – you just need to expand it, which will be much easier when you have the current branding at your disposal. Most franchises will already have detailed websites and social media accounts set up. If you run things in a way that’s consistent with the good reputation the brand already has, then you should be fine!
You’ll get the training and assistance you need
Getting involved in a franchise has a much lower barrier to entry than starting up a business in many ways. You don’t need to have specialist knowledge at the start, because the vast majority of franchisors will provide you will all the training you need. Throughout your dealings as a franchise owner, you’ll be able to seek assistance from the franchisor in several matters, including financial troubles or negotiations with suppliers.
There are a variety of businesses to work with
Name a type of business that you’d like to get into and it’s almost guaranteed that you’ll be able to find a franchise along those lines. What to get into the health food business?

Networking is easier
If you want to make it big in the business world, then you’ve got to put some hard work into networking. Thankfully, just like you have an established customer base with a franchise, you’ll also have established contacts ready for you. Suppliers, customers, partners – you’ll be able to communicate with the types of parties that the franchisor have already struck up a relationship with. This makes one of the trickiest part of developing a business much easier!
