You’ve made the decision that franchising is for you, but are you best suited to running a franchise? While it’s good to be entrepreneurial, the fact that you’re there to follow someone else’s business model can mean there’s not much leeway when it comes to which course your venture takes.

For many people the safety net provided by such a tried-and-tested business model is an attraction, and the ability to follow the franchise road map will more than likely lead to success. But what other skills do our franchisees share?

Well, while the hours are flexible, you’ll need a strong work ethic to get your franchise off the ground. Put simply, it’s hard work. There’ll be long hours and you’ll have to muck in with everything at the start, although you’ll do this safe in the knowledge that you’re building something for your future. As you’ll have heard before, you get out what you put in – the harder you work the greater the rewards.

While reaping those financial rewards you’ll also build upon the skills you’re bringing to the role. Our franchisees are great leaders with the ability to motivate the people around them. You’ll need to understand what makes a team function and how to get the best out of your employees, as well as being able to deal with customers as the local face of our brand. Behind all this is business knowledge that will mean you can easily keep on top of how your franchise is operating. You’ll be able to monitor your income and expenditure with a keen eye on the future that means you can deal with any potential bumps in the road before they happen.
