Benefits of Big Franchise Brands
What are the advantages to purchasing a large, established franchise over a smaller, lesser-known franchise? The first is obvious, the franchisee is getting a recognized brand name that will immediately attract customers on day one. The franchise company has already performed the advertising and marketing for you, so there is no need to ‘educate’ the customer base as to the merits of your product or service.
The other big advantage is the relative dependability of a business concept that has been tested, improved, and retested. The kinks and potential pitfalls have been worked out by scores of franchisees over the years. The knowledge base that has been accumulated makes it less likely that a situation will arise that hasn’t been previously dealt with. In addition, the new franchisee has a tremendous resource in the current group of franchise owners, and is more likely to be able to find an existing franchise unit to take over (as opposed to starting up a new unit).
