With so many franchising opportunities now on offer, how do you find the one that’s right for you?
The number of new franchise opportunities to the industry is increasing all the time, with hundreds of new companies setting up in the sector alone each year. But how can you possibly keep track of all these new entrants to the marketplace? Somewhere among them might well be the opportunity you have been looking for, but when there are so many, just how do you find the one that’s right for you?
The number of new opportunities in the franchise marketplace is increasing all the time. But how can you possibly keep track of all these new entrants to the marketplace? Somewhere among them might well be the chance you have been looking for to set up your own business, but when there are so many, just how do you find the one that’s right for you?
In the past, the most obvious way to do this has often been at an exhibition. With hundreds of companies, seminars, and workshops, they can be a great way to gain an insight into both the latest franchising opportunities along with advice and support. However, exhibitions are often full of companies who have the backing to be able to afford a presence, quite often established players, while the smaller start-ups, who may have an exciting and new opportunity that’s perfect for you, have a much more difficult time showcasing their offering. In many cases, the chances of these types of businesses getting any visibility at these large-scale events and being able to demonstrate just how you can become a franchisee, are very slim.
And don’t forget, it’s not just about there being a level playing field. You need to be able to trust the franchisor and the opportunity. At an exhibition, money can build you an attractive and eye-catching stand but the best opening for you might well be found at a far simpler stand tucked away at the back of the hall. So just how can you find what you need in this vast and complex arena?
