How franchising works

Franchisees pay a franchise fee to the franchisor to be granted rights to open and manage a business under a trademarked franchise and to receive training on how to run a business. 

A franchiser pays an initial fee for the trademark and training. Most franchises will pay a royalty fee for the trademark and ongoing support and training, which typically amounts to four to ten percent. The franchisee must provide all capital required to start the franchise and bear all risks.

How to franchise your company:

Consult a franchise consultant: This is the best way to start a franchise or expand your business. A plan will be created by the franchise consultant to ensure that you're moving in the right direction.

A franchise attorney is recommended: You will need to be familiar with the legal and business requirements for potential franchises and state and federal government entities.

Marketing is the next step. 

Your franchise consultant can help you in this area. To get some ideas, you can also look at other franchise prospectuses. However, you must follow FTC guidelines when creating a prospectus.

Re-define your role: Now you are the franchise's CEO and will need to adopt a new mindset. You now have a much bigger role. This includes creating excitement among potential franchisees. Your focus should be on marketing, attending events, and supervising the UFOC.
