Are you confused as to what a franchise business is and what it can offer?
To help you better understand, we’ve compiled the most frequently asked questions about franchising so you can best understand why this business model may be the fit that you are looking for.
Per the International Franchise Association (IFA), a franchise involves a franchisor, the brand and a franchisee that pays to build a business under the franchisor’s brand.
Simply put, a franchisee will pay a franchisor for the right to use the business’s operations and systems, thus becoming a business owner with the support of a larger brand.
Owning a franchise requires the same motivation, dedication and grit as operating an independent business. If you are a decisive, team-oriented and flexible person, you already have three qualities that may make you a good franchise owner.
