5 Reasons Buying A Franchise Is The Best Way To Start A Business

Reason #1:  “You’re in business for yourself but not by yourself.”

This is huge.  Buying a franchise means buying into a system that has been perfected over a number of years.  Compare that to a start-up that “you hope will work.”

Reason #2:  For each franchisor you need to be in the correct quadrant of the personality assessment results.  If you are, this will give you and your chosen franchisor additional confidence that you can learn how to become a successful franchise owner.

Reason #3:  A Study of the Unit Level Economics of your chosen franchise gives further assurance that profits are waiting for you.  This is a critical step in learning how to buy a franchise that fits your financial situation and goals.

Reason #4:  The franchisor’s franchisee expectations are written out for you in the FDD.  With a little help from a pro franchise consultant, you can also determine what kinds of help the franchisor will provide you to get to breakeven and beyond.

Reason #5:  Current and past “franchisee validation.”  If you were to open a non-franchise start-up, do you really think your successful competitors would be open and willing to give you advice to help you get your business up and running successfully?  Franchise validation provides exactly that.

"I contacted Sid at a time when I was looking for my next franchised business, but had no idea what I wanted to do. He very patiently listened to my requirements and presented me with perfect franchise systems to explore that fit my needs. After my insistence to research some 20 plus franchisors, I ended up becoming a franchisee of the very first system that Sid presented to me. I couldn't be happier with the franchise. Sid's pick was perfect for my financial and lifestyle goals. His approach is very patient, helpful, knowledgeable and professional. I highly recommend Sid if you are at all interested in franchising."
