Franchise Choices/3 Things to Beware of {Part 3}

Now, I will discuss the 3rd thing to watch out for, when investing in a franchise business of your own……..

(This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure policy).

The 3rd thing to watch out for is the "selling". In my experience,  the franchise companies I choose to work with {And visa-versa}, are the ones that "award" franchise to my candidates…not sell them the franchise.Another words, the potential franchisee {you}, must pass certain formal and informal qualifying steps. An example of a formal qualifier is net worth. If the net worth minimum requirement for a franchise is $300k, and your net worth is $450k, you have formally qualified.An informal one is calling X number of current franchise owners in a 5 day period, as discussed with the franchise development director.You and the franchise development director discussed this part of the research process, and you agreed to call X number of current franchisees within a defined period.

The good and great franchise companies are constantly evaluating  you, and  your actions. Are you following through with the things you agreed to do.Did you call the franchise development director on Thursday at 11:00AM, as promised? {just an example}

When I stated that "selling" is an important thing to beware of when investing in a franchise of your own,
did you think I meant that you should not really have to be "sold" on why you should invest in a particular franchise opportunity?

Another words, if you have spent a measley 2 weeks investigating an opportunity, and are feeling "heat" from the franchise development director..i.e. "You really better move fast on this opportunity, before someone else does", then you need to take a step {make that 2-3 steps back}from this "opportunity.
As I said before, good to great franchise companies "award" franchises to the right folks. They don’t "sell" them.
