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 ended our previous discussion of service concepts with the point that many of these businesses are based on customers making the choice to trade money (surplus) for time (deficit). The example we used was maid services, where time-starved customers spend money to buy time they can spend with their family and friends.

One of the best ways for a new franchisee to get in on the action in franchising is by choosing a nontraditional location. Why? For starters, try reduced franchise fees, lower overall startup costs, smaller real estate fees (none for kiosks!), fewer employees, and for some, the option of beginning part-time.

Franchising has matured since Ray Kroc opened his first McDonald's in 1955 in Des Plaines, Illinois. First-day sales at that restaurant were $316.12. In 2016, McDonald's annual sales topped $24.6 billion at nearly 37,000 restaurants in more than 120 countries -- with about 84 percent of those stores owned by franchisees. Daily sales per franchised store today? You do the math!

Home-based franchise businesses appeal to entrepreneurs for many good reasons. For some, it provides a relief from the daily commute. For others it represents a break from the corporate rat race. For still others it means a chance to follow their passion and do what they love. But for all, it's a chance to take control of their financial future and build a business of their own.

Going into business for yourself is a major life decision. One path is to start your own business or buy an existing one. Another is to choose the franchising model and buy into a proven system with a known brand name. Each path has its own promise, as well as its perils. Once the choice is made, the question becomes what type of business to choose.
