Ah, love is in the air.
The beginning of the year is often when people show themselves love by making some of their biggest life changes. From deciding to start school, to eating healthier and exercising, to finding a new career. If you’re seeking a career change, it may be time to consider becoming an entrepreneur: fall in love with franchising.
Franchisees come from different backgrounds, levels of education, and experience. However, there are many shared characteristics, including determination and courage in striking out on their own.
If you’re considering franchising, here are a few reasons to fall in love and start a relationship.
A Support System
You may fall in love with franchising because of the strong support system before, during, and after your grand opening. While some franchisors may provide support initially, the support may fizzle out after the grand opening. Hungry Howie’s provides support in development, marketing, operations and training as well as purchasing and logistics. In addition, franchisees can expect weekly calls from experienced support staff.
Be Your Own Boss
One of the main reasons people fall in love with franchising is the ability to be your own boss. You can choose to create your own idea, have successes and losses, and eventually, form a successful business model, or you can jump into an already successful business model with a franchise. While you will have to follow the guidelines set forth by the franchisor, new franchisees will still have a fair amount of control over their business. Best of all, you will be your own boss and be in charge of making many decisions for the good of your business.
Along with a strong support system, franchisees will benefit from significant training. Prior to opening a Hungry Howie’s, you will visit the Michigan headquarters and nearby locations for classroom and on-the-job training. The training period will last for about four weeks. Following your grand-opening, in-store consultants will also spend two weeks at your franchise providing guidance.
Ability to Expand
Another reason why you will fall in love with franchising a Hungry Howie’s is the ability to expand. Once you successfully own a franchise, you may wish to open a secondary location. Hungry Howie’s gives multi-store operators the opportunity to buy territories, which is not something available with other pizza franchise brands.
There are many reasons why you may fall in love with franchising, but the decision to open a franchise cannot be taken lightly. Your decision should be based on an evaluation of your own interests, goals, and capabilities.
