How Long Does It Take To Get Help From Franchise Headquarters?

Stopwatch 2

The franchisees that you’ll be calling as part of your franchise research know the answer to that question.

That’s because they’re already living the dream. They’re already in business.

And soon, you may be too.

 

About Franchise Company Support

I want you to remember what the franchise development director told you about the support that you’d be getting if you ended up becoming a franchisee of their brand.

As a matter of fact, write down what was said.

Words like these may have been used:

  • Amazing
  • Exceptional
  • Unprecedented
  • Ultimate
  • Matchless
  • Prompt
  • Professional
  • Cutting-edge
  • 24/7

You may want to refer back to these words when you’re a franchisee and you need well…support.

 

All That

The support you get from the team at franchise headquarters may be “all that.” I hope so.

But, the really great thing about doing franchise research correctly-what I’m teaching how to do right now, is that you don’t have to believe anything that’s said by franchise company employees.

That’s because you can call/visit the people that are…or aren’t getting the promised support.

The people who already invested the money that you may be about to.

The people that are already living the dream.

The franchisees.

 

Question 27

Here is a question that I want you to ask every franchisee you get a hold of during your research:

How do you feel about the franchisor’s support?”

And, as an added bonus, ask this one:

How long does it take to get a response when you ask for help…for support?”

The answers you get from those questions will give you a good idea of what you can expect to get as a franchisee, support-wise.

If you go into franchise ownership with your eyes wide-open, surprises will be minimized.

In other words, ask great questions.
