Many times prospective franchisors equate having a "successful" business as proof that he or she should enter the world of franchising. However‚ establishing a franchise requires more than a successful business. For starters you need a business that has established and maintained proven business "systems" and "procedures". Think about your "business systems" and question yourself as to how documented and established these systems are. Also‚ are these systems in your head or are they written down. If they are not written down then do you really know what they are?
Addressing this topic in a recent article‚ "Carbon Copy: Turning your Business into a Franchise"‚ Tony Eames identifies some important "checklist" factors that prospective franchisors should definitely be evaluating. Those factors‚ include:
When answering these questions "don't just answer yes". Rather give some detailed thought and put in writing why your business is different and how your success may be replicated when discussing "replication" that have been clearly established‚ tested and proven. Most importantly these systems must be transferable and taught to franchisees.
