When to Buy a Franchise - Part 2

Determining the best time to invest in a franchise can be a complicated decision with many factors to consider. Don’t forget to read our first post on this topic!

Having an idea of when you want your company to be up and running can help to determine the best time to buy. Consider timing that would work for an opening event and plan your investment and any construction plans with that in mind. Is there a certain time of year that would make the most sense? Or maybe a holiday you could aim for?

Keep in mind that the most important thing when investing in a franchise is selecting a company that you feel passionate about and whose business process, ethics and values align with your goals & objectives.  Take your time when planning your investment, and choose one that you feel confident leading. It is often less about finding the right time and more about finding the right franchise.

When to Buy a Franchise - Part 1

An important aspect to consider when looking into franchise opportunities is when is the best time to buy. There is no simple answer to this question, but there are a few things that should factor into this decision. First and foremost, your franchise research and brand evaluation are extremely important prior to your selection and purchase. If you’re leaving a job or business before opting into a new franchise opportunity, this is also something that will affect your buying timeline. Consideration of site selection and construction timing should be evaluated. If you’ll require training before opening your franchise, you should think about obtaining necessary certificates or classes before purchasing for your franchise.

Comparative Research

When considering buying a franchise, you may be open to all different kinds of franchises and fields, but more often than not, prospective buyers have one particular franchise in mind that they have their mind set on. While you may feel good about a particular franchise company, it is important to do comparative research. Find several franchises that are in your field of interest and compare how they stack up to one another. While you may be attracted to a particular company based on your personal experience, there are many financial, marketing, and other business factors to be considered when deciding on the franchise opportunity that is going to be the best and most lucrative for you in the long run.

Speak with Franchise Owners

Before embarking on the journey of buying and owning a franchise, it is essential to conduct research. Due diligence is an extremely important part of your evaluation, and several aspects should be considered before making the investment. One of the most important aspects of your evaluation is communicating with existing franchise owners. Many franchises will have a list of recommended franchisees that they suggest you get in touch with, but all corporate franchises can provide you with a full list of current owners for you to talk to. Ask these owners the important questions that only they can provide true insight for. As it pertains to getting a full picture of what it will be like to be a franchise owner of a specific company, current owners are your best and most valuable resource in creating that visual.

Filling Out Your Franchise Application

Becoming a franchise owner may be an extensive application and review process. When applying for a franchise ownership opportunity, be prepared to submit detailed background information about yourself, perhaps a credit profile, current occupation and proof that you have the initial capital investment. During the process, you will be working with a representative of the franchise or, in some cases, a third party employed by them for additional information. It can take some time, but is well worth it on your way to becoming a franchise owner!
