As Valentine’s Day approaches, we are flung into the season of love.

Flowers and candy are given as signs of affection. Romantic dinners are served in candlelight. Everyone is caught up in the emotion.

But, we’d like to tell you about something you should really fall in love with: Franchising!

If you have ever had the urge to venture out on your own and start a business, then franchise ownership is an option worth looking at, and here is why…

1. It’s a Proven Model

A franchise has spent years, and a lot of money, developing a system that works. They may have a dozen, or hundreds, of locations, and are invested in making them all a success.

2. Instant Brand Recognition

What a plus! Instead of working endless hours with marketing and R&D, you are stepping into a business that many people have already heard of!

Think of the time you’re saving that you can now use to serve your customers.

3. Transparency

Before you sign the final paperwork and open your doors, you have the ability to do a deep-dive into the franchisor.

Thanks to the step called “Discovery Day”, the franchisor will open their doors to you, and allow you to see every aspect of the business you’re about to get into.

And, you’ll be able to chat with other franchisees to get their viewpoint on the franchise.

4. Pre-Qualification by the Franchisor

Because the franchisor wants you to succeed with their brand, they will want to make sure your finances and level of dedication meets their standards.

5. Training and Support

Unlike opening a business from scratch, franchising offers unparalleled training and support to their franchisees. Why? Because your success is their success.

Before you open your doors, you’ll know the business inside and out. And after you’re open for business, the franchisor is there for you in an ongoing support capacity.

What other business model offers all of that?

6. Options

Did you know there are over 3000 franchise opportunities, in dozens of different industries?

It’s true! There is a franchised business for almost everyone!

Also, there are other options that are appealing:

  • Work from home
  • Semi-absentee ownership
  • Brick-and-Mortar ownership

With all of these options, the support, the branding, and more, what’s not to love about franchising as an option?
