Why should aspiring entrepreneurs consider franchising?

You have that itch. You dream of working for your self, and being in control. You have always thought about starting your own business, trying to think of that billion dollar idea. Maybe you don’t need to think that hard!

Although the odds of creating AND successfully marketing that next great product or service are stacked against you, there’s still hope! Ever thought about leveraging a FRANCHISE BUSINESS SYSTEM as a means of attaining the freedom and control that you crave?

Here’s how it works:

·    You are investing in a proven system with a track record of success.  The franchisor provides comprehensive upfront training and ongoing support to help you start and stay in business. Very rarely is prior industry experience required. Your transferable skills and the fracnhisor’s system may be all you need to launch a new career!

·    You are getting indirect marketing support. The parent company has spent a lot of their own money in testing various advertising and marketing channels. You’ll get access to this body of knowledge and intellectual property. 

·    You are entering a fraternity of fellow owners.  The franchise community provides not only wealth of first-hand information for you to digest during your research and selection process, but also an additional source of advice and counsel once you’ve joined the system. 

This is just a sampling of some of the advantages of investing in a franchise business system rather than starting your own business from scratch.  I invite you to reach out to FranNet of Michigan to further learn more about franchising.  Visit our web site at, or contact us using our information below:
