The Building Blocks of Starting a Franchise: Pt. II

Opening a franchise is a process that should be pursued carefully. Read on for additional tips on buying a franchise.

Meet with the Franchisor: By planning a day to meet with the franchisor, you will likely find plenty of information on what the franchisor can offer in terms of support, and you will be able to ask all of your pending questions. Visiting their headquarters will also provide a great chance to meet other franchisees.

Prepare Your Business Plan: If you are taking out a loan to buy your franchise, you’ll need a business plan. With this, you will receive financing and be able to set your own personal goals and guidelines. As with any investment, you should always have a well-researched structure to follow.

Obtain Permits and Insurance: Each industry has its own requirements for permits and insurance, and regulations by state can vary as well. The franchisor will likely have background knowledge of the permits and insurance needed to operate their business.

Attend Training: Your franchisor should provide all the necessary training in both a classroom and a practical manner. You will also likely receive their operations manual, and any required software or materials at this time.
