Benefits of a Franchise Model

Expand without the need for your own capital

Franchising a business enables you to expand your operation using the investment from Franchisees rather than having to fund it yourself. Irrespective of whether you have 1 or 20 Franchisees, your fixed costs as a Franchisor generally remain constant, but every new Franchisee to the system provides you additional capital.

Franchisees have skin in the game

A Franchisee typically spends an average of 8 years in a Franchise system, whereas you are lucky to get 18 months out of an employee. Because they have made a real investment for which they want a return, Franchisees are far more motivated to see a brand succeed and will generally work hard to ensure this happens. Employees have no such skin in the game.

Growth Can Be Rapid

The Franchise model allows a business to grow rapidly. Providing the Franchisor has sufficient capacity to provide training and support, it is possible to onboard several Franchisees in a very short period.

Reduced Overheads

Franchising a business allows the head office to function with a much smaller staffing resource relative to a similar-sized employee operation. This is because franchisees are responsible for many of the day-to-day responsibilities and tasks.

Increased Profits

The reduction or alleviation of management resources and other associated costs through franchising a business ultimately results in a more profitable outcome.

Fully Scalable Model

A franchise model allows the franchisor's organisation to grow exponentially from one set of franchise documents, so whether the objective is to open 2 more business units, or 200+, a franchise model makes this possible.

Expansion Into Additional Markets

Once the franchise documents are drafted it can be relatively simple to add additional services that complement and operate in similar industries and markets. This enables the franchisor and franchisees to achieve organic growth with little capital outlay.

Risk Reduction

Franchising a business significantly reduces the risk for the franchisor. In a typical franchise model, the franchisee has all the responsibility for the upfront investment in establishing the franchise, including purchasing plant and equipment, premises fit-out, hiring employees, and any working capital required in the beginning.
