Reading Time: 2 minutesFranchising offers a great opportunity to go into business for yourself, but not by yourself. Plus, many other reasons that you may not have thought of.
For us, the brand is the sun. It’s at the centre of everything we do and everything we do radiates from it. All of our brands have been established for a minimum of 18 years and one in particular, over 60 years! Having an established brand opens doors for you and can help you to secure customers who are looking for a name that they can trust, that has been around a while.
Proven Business Model
The phrase ‘been there, done that, got the t-shirt’ perfectly describes why it’s great to have a business that’s already made mistakes so that you don’t have to. Equally, the wins are noted and form part of the successful business model today. Going it alone runs the risk of making costly mistakes that can not only set you back but make you bust!
Economies of Scale
Being part of a franchise enables you to harness the buying power of a much larger organisation. We are able to purchase products, equipment and supplies on your behalf at a cheaper rate as we can buy in bulk and pass the savings on to you.
We’re in it together, every step of the way. You’ll not only receive unlimited support from our team of franchise professionals, but also from an existing franchise network of business owners who are on hand to give support and advice when you need it. We encourage communication around the network and regularly hold gatherings where you can meet face to face.
Most of our opportunities are sales and marketing franchise opportunities. In short, this means that when you undertake local marketing activities, you will generate local interest for you to convert into customers and then you will repeat the cycle again. We are stronger together and as such, much of our marketing is done on a national scale with a local feel so that you get more bang for your buck. The best example for this is our state-of-the-art websites across all of our brands.
These are just a few of the many reasons why being a part of a franchise can help you to realise your dreams of becoming your own boss with the comfort of an established brand, proven model and unlimited support of a world-leading franchisor.
