What is Franchising?

Franchising provides a means of owning and running a business for yourself, but not by yourself. A franchise is an agreement between two parties; the franchisor and franchisee.

The franchisor provides trade mark or trade name of an established business model along with details of business operations, and a franchisee is someone who pays an initial investment, sometimes in conjunction with ongoing fees, which provides them with a license to trade under those trade marks or trade names and run an established business.

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.

There are a huge range of franchises for sale on the Franchiseek franchise directory, from catering franchises, automotive franchises and cleaning franchises to pet related franchises and plumbing. You’re sure to find your ideal franchise at Franchiseek international franchise directory.

Why Buy a Franchise?

Simply put, when buying a franchise, you’re buying a proven business model. Unlike starting up your own business from scratch, a franchisor has already created the business trademark and brand name, with all past mistakes identified and resolved.

The franchisor will have replicated that franchise business across multiple territories already with other franchisees all following in the franchisor’s successful footsteps.

This is why franchises generally have a better success rate when compared to business startups. In fact, 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.

When buying a franchise, you’ll often receive everything you need to get a good start. After all, your success is the franchisor’s success. The franchisor will want you to achieve because you’re trading under their brand name and they want you to build a successful reputation that will have a good impact on them, and their many other franchisees.
