What are franchise opportunities?

Franchise opportunities are a method of distributing products or services by licensing business processes, products, services & intellectual property to investors who will operate within an established franchise business model. At least two levels of people are involved in a franchise system: (1) the franchisor, who provides its trademark or trade name & business system & (2) the franchisee, who pays an ongoing royalty & usually an initial fee for the right to do business under the franchisor’s name and system.

Business format franchising is the type most identifiable to the average person. In a business format franchise relationship, the franchisor provides to the franchisee not just its trade name, products and services but an entire system for operating the business. The franchisee generally receives site selection and development support, operating manuals, training, brand standards, quality control, a marketing strategy and business advisory support from the franchisor. While less identified with franchising, traditional or product distribution franchising is actually larger in total sales than business format franchising. In a traditional franchise, the focus is not on the system of doing business but mainly on the products manufactured or supplied by the franchisor to the franchisee. In most, but not all, situations, the manufactured products generally need pre and postsale service as found in the automobile industry.

Franchise opportunities cover many industries, not just food as many believe. Other examples are gardening & lawn care franchises, business coaching franchises,child care, automotive franchises including care car, repair and sales of vehicles and many other white collar, retail & van based franchises. In fact any business that the skills and trade name can be transferred can be franchised & our Franchise UK Directory is one of our 60 global franchise opportunities directories your can explore to find your ideal franchise business.

Why buy a franchise opportunity?

A franchise is basically replicating an already successful business so if you copy it exactly and the market conditions in your area are the same then you have a much greater chance of success in your new business. Many leading experts and franchise associations claim franchise start-up success rates are over 95%, far greater than when you set-up a business on your own. Something else very attractive to many that buy a franchise is being able to change career direction. When you buy a franchise you are buying a proven model and are trained and supported by proven experts in their sector so can be a great way for a new career or to turn your existing career into your own business. Franchise consultants can help a business franchise by providing advice & guidance on the entire franchising process.
