Answer

While buying a franchised business is no guarantee of success, buying a franchised business which is part of an established franchise system can have distinct benefits over and above buying an existing non-franchised business or starting your own business from scratch. These include:

  • Statistics show that a franchise business is usually less risky than starting your own business from scratch.
  • You are using a model to operate your business that has already been proven to succeed.
  • You are using branding that is already recognised in the market place. You will not need to spend time and money to develop public recognition of a brand from scratch.
  • You will receive support from the franchisor who has already has the experience in operating the business and knows what works and what doesn't.
  • You will receive training, support and manuals which will assist you to operate your business successfully.
  • You get the benefits of running your own business combined with the benefits of being part of larger network for instance – preferential supply arrangements in a coordinated manner.
  • You have the benefit of coordinated national and local marketing paid for by contributions from all franchisees and arranged by the franchisor.
  • You may find it easier to obtain finance if you are purchasing a well-known franchise business

“I can't speak highly enough of Jenny. She got everything done in a timely manner and when my ex-husband threw a spanner in the works at the eleventh hour she got the required documentation to his lawyers and settlement back on track.” ~ Tracey
“I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to John Stirling and Kathryn Wynd for their patience and understanding. We are so honored to have John and Kathryn looking after us. Whenever someone asks if I know of legal firm, I always say Turner Hopkins.” ~ Manaia
“John is very easy to talk to, he never makes you feel dumb, and never makes you feel like you are wasting his time for asking questions. He explains everything very clearly, every time. John's support staff are also very efficient and so easy to deal with. No detail is missed when dealing with them. My husband and I are fans of them all :)” ~ Jess
