Can you really buy a business that’s 100% set up…a “business in a box?” Let’s find out, because it sure sounds good!
A Business In A Box?
What does that mean? What do you,”see” when you read that sentence?
I know what I see.
- I see a franchise business that’s already set-up, and just needs someone to buy it and run it. If it’s a retail type of business, all the fixtures are in, the shelves are stocked, and the point of sale system is plugged in and ready to go.
- I see a business that’s already to go, and should be easy to manage-since everything has been set-up.
- I see a business that should be easy to make money in, since it’s already set-up and systematized.
- And, since it’s a business in a box, I’m obviously not the first one to own one of them, so naturally it’s a proven business.
Who Constructed The Box?
Who is the entrepreneur that built the box? Credentials, please.
Does this person have a successful track record in business?
Has this person–the franchisor, done real-world testing of the business?
Does this franchisor have a top-notch team in place to support numerous boxes?
In other words, does the franchise opportunity you’re thinking of investing in have teeth?
Are Other Box Owners Profitable?
The only way to find out if other owners of this business are happy-and making money, is to contact them personally, and ask them.
That way, you won’t have to assume that a ready-made business-one that comes in a box, is a successful one.
And, it’s really easy to get real answers if you know what questions to ask…and how to ask them.
