Franchising as a Career Option

by Jahleel Wilson of Kaizen Biz Brokers

“Due to Covid-19, it’s possible that you’ve either been laid off, downsized, or your job is now in jeopardy. If so, maybe it’s time to think about franchising. Chances are you’ve heard quite a bit about franchising. But chances are also good that some of what you’ve heard isn’t accurate. Maybe you’ve heard that the only franchises available are fast food restaurants such as McDonald’s or Burger King. Maybe you’ve heard that only the wealthy can afford to invest in franchises. Whatever you’ve heard, here are just a few of the benefits of franchising:

Investment levels vary and most franchises are quite affordable. Financing is also available.
Franchises aren’t only about food. Think about any type of business, and chances are there’s a franchise concept like it.
Initial training is provided and ongoing assistance is available from the company whose franchise you are buying.
Franchises are proven business concepts. On top of that, almost 100 percent of the time you’re selling something that already has great momentum, hence the need for expansion and franchise.
Marketing materials, advertising, and internet campaigns have already been developed by the company’s corporate office.
There are many more benefits, perhaps the main one being that YOU get to choose the franchise concept. You can open a fast food place, a smoothie shop, a spa, or even work from home. There are hundreds of franchises, ranging from brick-and-mortar locations to home-based, or even completely passive. Franchises aren’t only B2C, there are B2B options, too.
