one to one 1However, franchising your business is not something that can be learnt overnight and so when deciding to franchise you should consider using the services of a franchise consultant who will use their experience to help you build a sustainable franchise model and will navigate you through each step of the franchising journey.

Developing a successful franchise proposition requires you to satisfy a number of key criteria such as: have you proven and piloted your concept already, do the figures stack up, does your business propplan graphicosition have longevity and so on.

Franchising your business also requires you to transform and document your business into a series of organised systems and procedures that can be replicated by others, as well as the implementation of a strong training and support infrastructure that will ensure your franchisees follow your systems and maintain brand standards to the letter from day one.

It is therefore important that you receive sound advice and guidance from an experienced franchise consultant from the outset, to firstly establish if franchising your business is the right decision for you, and if so, how best to structure and develop your franchise proposition, in order to avoid any costly mistakes further down the line. 

There are many aspects of the franchising journey that a franchise consultant can help you with depending on whether you are franchising for the first time, or if you are expanding an established franchise network. Whichever applies to you, it is so important that you choose your franchise consultant carefully, selecting someone who you feel you can build a good relationship with and who has a thorough understanding of your business, culture and strategic objectives.

Appointing the right franchise consultant to navigate you through the franchising process is an extremely important decision, but will help ensure that your journey into franchising will be more successful, your franchise business model will be more robust, and you will spend less on avoiding future business challenges.
