Real Estate

Finding the best real estate for your franchise is challenging and competitive, whether building anew or remodelling an existing location. Site selection is complicated and “A” locations are both hard to come by and expensive. Using a real estate broker to help find the optimal sites and negotiate the best contract is common practice. Seek legal advice to ensure you’re receiving the optimum tenant improvements and landlord benefits.

We are a nation of worriers. And lately, when it comes to fretting about the capital markets and the economy, it seems we have elevated worrying to an art form. Just the other day, I heard a national news announcer proclaim that investors had become "trepidatious" in response to recent market volatility. Huh?

A few weeks ago I found myself at a conference in New Orleans speaking to a few hundred college recruiters. The brands represented in the room were well-known: Shell, Geico, Valpak, Wal-Mart, Enterprise, Jaguar, Boeing. My topic was the tremendous disconnect between young people today and the companies that work so hard to pursue and attract them.

When Lino DeFeo bought a Sign-A-Rama franchise in West Palm Beach, Fla., he didn't know much about signs. That was about 15 years ago. DeFeo had sold his trucking business in Manhattan and moved to Florida with his wife Maria and their two young children to join a family business. But that didn't work out exactly as planned. "I got out before we totally killed each other," he says with a laugh.

1987 was a good year for franchising. Up to then, franchising was young, brash, and not always professional. Franchises weren’t much concerned with history. They were built mostly by young entrepreneurs who saw an opportunity and grabbed it, looking forward, not backward. The first 30 years of modern business format franchising had the feeling of the Wild West (like the Internet of the last 10 years).

We all know to expect death and taxes, but tenants can add one more thing to that list: lease renewals. A lease begins to expire the day it's signed. Yet, how often have you found yourself scrambling to negotiate a renewal in the last couple of months or weeks before the last day? If you're waiting until the last minute to make the critical decision about renewing, and on what terms, you're clearly not dealing from a position of strength.

Franchising...it's not a business, but rather, a way of doing business. It's a unique, and usually highly effective, method of distribution for all kinds of products, goods, and services. It's also an industry that generates $1.5 trillion dollars in annual sales.

Many trace the origins of franchising as we know it today back to Europe in the 1800s, when German beer makers granted pubs and taverns the rights to sell and use their name. In fact, the word "franchise" is a French derivative meaning privilege or freedom.

As highlighted in last quarter's Investment Insights column, most of us are not particularly suited to be wise investors. In fact, neuroscientists are increasingly proving what veteran investors and asset managers alike have long suspected: Individuals make a lot of not-so-rational choices when it comes to dealing with their money, investments and financial affairs.
