Should I Do It Now? When is the right time ? What Do I Need to Consider?

Sparkleminds believes that if your business is “Franchise-able”, you should seriously consider this option. It is quite normal for most entrepreneurs to be unsure of this one question of, “Should I franchise my business?”, now or later.

Becoming a Franchise is the fastest and the most efficient and cost-effective way to expand a business, but the transformation of an independent business to a Franchise system is not so easy. It takes capital and a considerable amount of time. Before you commit to any plan, you need to determine if your business is “Franchise-able”. Once you have set aside some resources, you are ready to franchise your business with the following parameters in place.

Evaluate your business if it has to succeed as Franchise and take the self-assessment check to see your readiness on franchising:

Prototype Development

Your business should have at least one unit or territory operating successfully and profitably— but it is preferable that your business has three or four units, or covers a substantial population or territory. You could be running these units on your own, or within the family or a known circle of people.

Brand Registrations

You should have an intellectual property for your business. Patents, trademarks and copyrights depending on the product or service your business is providing . The goal is to have an identifiable brand which is protected making this a compulsion and not an option.

Business Potential

The business should have long-term market potential. Businesses that capitalize on fads are not good candidates since the product or service may be passé in a few years or less. Try to make a reasonable assessment that the business product or service will be in demand for at least the next 5-10 years. Businesses that are unique in some way lend themselves well to Franchising.

Franchise Training Programs

The operation of the business must be teachable. Remember that in many Franchises the Franchisee has no prior knowledge of the business. Successful franchising demands that the minutest details of business operations are ironed out.

Several Businesses cannot be transferred in their current avatar. Most decision-making and day-to-day operations emanate from the owner who has honed certain skills over many years or maybe decades. This skill acquisition and certain talents, may become the main reason for the franchisee failing.  Pivoting to a business module where Franchisees could be trained to perform the said functions in a limited yet effective manner could be a great solution.

Resource Allocation

The business owner should be sufficiently capitalized to incur the legal and consulting expense necessary to lay the franchise foundation and to formulate a long term strategy. In addition, as a Franchisor, you will be responsible for the formulation and implementation of a training program and must provide a comprehensive manual for Franchisee to use. This could begin with a standard operating procedures format in the beginning and once your operations are standardized to a higher degree, you could collate the operating procedures and begin your manual preparation.

Team Management

Lastly, the Franchisor should have employees on staff to administer to Franchisee needs; this may entail additional hiring of personnel or at least you could use our outsourcing your franchise recruitment module. Ensures that new franchisors do not end up spending excessively on salaries, recruitment and training costs for recruitment of franchisees.

In fact, we will work closely with you in helping you understand the minimal resources that you would need to put in place to start franchising your business. Also, how you could spend additional capital thereafter whilst you see successful franchisees coming up.
