Starting your own business is a process full of decisions. One of the most important is whether or not to pursue a franchise. There are pros and cons to both sides of this debate, and which side is best for you is determined by many factors. While a lot of the work is done for you, the operation is also confined to limits set by the franchise. Sometimes business franchise loans are easier to get, while other times the market seems to prefer a more personal approach. How do you choose?
Does an Already Existing Franchise Fit Your Passion?
A new business is often grown from passion. You want to open an ice cream business or a cupcake shop because you love making ice cream or baking cupcakes. You want to open a mechanic shop because you love working on cars. If there is an already existing franchise that fits in with this passion and you are comfortable with the limits a franchise offers, then a franchise could be for you. The limits are set as safe guards in most cases, and for some new business owners, this is welcome. If those limits impede your passion however, you may want to consider the decision a bit longer.
Does the Market Demand It?
Is the market prime for a new mom and pop, or are you seeing opportunity from a popular franchise. Does everyone in your market travel to the next town to go to a popular coffee or grocery franchise? If so, you can either open one locally if possible or open your own non-franchise version and compete with them. On the other hand, if there isn’t a franchise nearby and you want to open your own business free of those constraints, knowing your market is prime for the product regardless of the name associated with it is valuable.
Do You Need the Support?
Sometimes the support of a well-known franchise is just what is needed to bump you over the edge with both lenders and customers. A franchise also offers valuable marketing that comes with the franchise fee, which helps on the budget.
