Does The Franchise Concept Make Sense For Your Market?

The franchise tips and advice I dole out tend to be focused on The You.

Like, this one:

When you’re looking for a franchise, find one that’s right for You.”

In other words, don’t go out and buy a franchise just because “they’re everywhere.”

Like these hot franchises.

You should definitely keep the focus of your search on ones that are a fit for You. But, there’s something else that you need to do before you write The Check.

You need to make sure that the franchise concept is a fit for your local area.


A Concept With A Stellar Track Record

The franchise you’re thinking of buying may have an amazing track record. This track record could include things like record franchisee profits, no lawsuits, or failure rates that are less than 1%.

But, if it’s somehow placed in the wrong area of the country for it to thrive, that terrific track record could go right out the window-along with the entire investment of the franchisee that opened it up.

And, You don’t want to be that franchisee. No way. No how.

One would think that there would be safeguards in place to prevent something like that from happening. After all, it is a franchise-type of business, and all the kinks have been ironed out.

Except for one thing; we don’t live in a perfect world.

Money can get in the way of things. Like common sense. Or, patience.

The franchise concept you choose has to be right for you.

And, your neighborhood.

    Joel, I found this post to resonate quite strongly with me.  I have been working in the education field for the last 6 years, and just recently started to get involved with the franchise side of things.  As such, I can say that finding a “match” is a really important consideration.  Money, numbers, statistics- all important of course.  But finding like-minded individuals is a critical component in the education world.  Enjoy the writing- will stop by often to read up!
