Believe it or not, you can have your own business in any area you like without having to start from scratch. Franchising is a way you can gain the rights to trade under an existing company name and brand.
Did you know that popular household names, like McDonald’s and Subway, are not all owned and operated by their head offices? The truth is many of the units you’ll see globally are run by independent business owners.
Popular names in other industries work in the same way. For example, Hertz, the car rental company, has franchises in 150 states.
This is great news for you because you can essentially pick and choose the kind of company you want to own. For your investment, you get a franchise package with all the documents, processes and branding you need to set up and launch in hardly any time at all. This saves you work writing policies from zero, coming up with branding and having to go out there to prove your company is reputable.
Think of it as a head start because lots of people will be familiar with your brand. The best part is that you inherit a company model that’s proven to work.
