What makes a business suitable for franchising?
To create a successful franchise, you should be starting with a healthy business that is performing well. You can get a steer on this by considering the key six criteria below
Unit-level operations, whether they be fixed-location or mobile, need to be sufficiently profitable to provide a solid return on investment.
Proven over time.
A business should have two or more years in operation, ideally more. Several outlets are an advantage – and prove adaptability. No franchisee or licensee should be a guinea pig.
An appealing concept.
It helps to have an attractive business concept many others would like to operate.
The business needs to own or access Intellectual Property (IP). Ideally, much of your IP will be unique and valuable – you might have exclusive products, brands, or systems. This provides your franchise with differentiation and competitive advantage.
Developing a proper franchising or licensing programme requires upfront capital. The amount depends on the situation.
Leadership and management.
The right leader for a franchised business is a competent manager with a strong vision, the ability to delegate, a talent for relationship-building and a passion for sales and marketing. Strengths in planning and strategic thinking help, too.
Other areas which are important for a franchise business include strong customer satisfaction and emerging brand strength. Long term, growing a great franchise means committing to being a great franchisor. You’ll achieve the best results by prioritising your franchisees’ success.
