The following list are some questions to ask a franchisor to evaluate a potential franchise.
Disclaimer: This list is not the only list to follow, but it may be used as a guideline.
- What is the track record of the company? A mature company would be a good indicator of stability and consistency.
- What are the products of the company? It is good to know the products of the company for familiarity in the market.
- How long is the market "shelf life" of the product? A good product should be able to withstand the test of time, and not just be the "flavor of the month" product.
- What kind of support can the company provide for the franchisee? A good Back-end support is very important as a good Front-end can be supported only by a good Back-End.
- What kind of investment am I to commit? Investment does not only entail money, but how much effort and time, are you willing to invest to the franchise.
- What kind of returns should I expect? This is very hard to quantify and is very subjective. In general, you can compare your leaving your money in the bank for the same period and computing how much interest you will earn, now compare that with placing your money in a business and projecting how much you can earn for the same period.
- Are their risks to getting a franchise? Yes, there are always risks in business, but with a franchise you improve the odds of success by investing in an established and trusted brand.
