Unleashing the Power of Franchise Businesses
November 2 @ 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT
No matter what stage of business ownership you’re in, it’s not uncommon to ask yourself “what’s next?” Join us as we explore the world of franchise businesses, what they are (and aren’t), their advantages, disadvantages and key considerations for leveraging franchises to diversify your business portfolio.
Franchise businesses provide entrepreneurs with a chance to expand. With a franchise, you gain brand recognition, marketing support, and a network of fellow franchisees. But franchising isn’t a guarantee of success. It demands dedication, research, and understanding of obligations.
When considering a franchise, it’s important to weigh the pros and cons. On one hand, franchises offer a ready-made solution with a proven track record, reducing the risk of starting a business from scratch. On the other hand, you might have limited control and need to pay ongoing fees.
Before venturing into franchising, evaluate goals, resources, and long-term plans. Consider compatibility with skills and interests, financial viability, and commitment. Conduct research, seek advice, and assess options to diversify your business portfolio.
