Join A Business Owner Network

businessfranchiseA franchise is a type of license that a party called franchisee acquires to allow them to have access to a business’s or franchisor’s proprietary knowledge, processes, and trademarks to allow to sell a product or provide a service under the business’s name. In exchange, the party pays a startup fee as well as ongoing licensing fees.

People enter into franchise ownership as their first step into entrepreneurship. They enjoy the idea of franchise ownership but also being part of a network of fellow franchisees with the support of their franchisor. The business becomes an asset, provides benefits of ownership and being in charge of your own time as well as creating a family business that can be handed down to children. If you need a business loan, lenders will view your request as a safer investment if you have proven franchisees performance to use as a benchmark. The franchise option provides marketing and training support, operational setup and a network of fellow business owners to utilize as a resource. With over 3,000 franchises in 75 industries, you will have many options to consider that will meet both your passion and your financial ROI.
