Buying Into A Franchise – Is There An Alternative To The High Cost Of Franchising?

Mark Ford here, home business coach and today I would like to talk about franchising and whether there is an alternative to buying into a franchise?.

Franchising as a business model has been around for decades and has proven to be very successful for millions of people all around the world.

So let’s define just what franchising is. Franchising is when a business owner, the franchisor, who has a product or service gives independent people, who become the franchisee, the rights to market and sell their products under the company brand name in a particular territory.

Franchising is particularly popular with people who are looking to start their own business. This is because they have the backing of the company who they are looking to buy into a franchise from.

When you buy a franchise you are basically buying into the reputation, trust, loyalty, goodwill and product line, that the company has built up over a sustained period of time.

Also you benefit from the training and marketing help that the franchisor offers within the start up package that you receive. Another benefit is that you get allocated a certain area, or territory, that you can trade within.

This is so that you are not competing with other franchisee’s from the same company. This does not mean though that you have total exclusivity on the type of product or service that you are promoting. Independent traders within the same industry will be present within your territory so you have to be made aware of this fact.

So on paper it looks a very good option for people to start a business of their own. The trouble is that it can be very expensive when buying into a franchise. If you think about it for just a moment, no one who has built up brand awareness for their company are just going to allow you to leverage it for peanuts! Would you?

When buying into a franchise you are looking at around $10,000 as a minimum for a really good one. Then at the top end of the scale you could be looking at the $1 Million mark.

It does not stop there though. You will need to have the tools of the trade, premises, staff and all the overheads that a traditional business comes with. After all a typical franchise would be classed as a traditional bricks and mortar business.

So as an example. If you bought a carpet cleaning business you would have to clean hundreds, maybe thousands, of carpets to start to see a return on your investment. As a side note you would have to put thousands of back breaking, literally, work into it as well.
