What is a franchise business and how to franchise my business?
Before you find out how to franchise your business you should really fully understand what a franchise is first. A franchise is effectively copying an already successful business format. Being a franchise business is copying exactly what the existing business does including it’s marketing and all internal operations and passing this knowledge, skills and experience to your franchisee’s via training, support and other relevant franchising documentation including a franchise operations manual.
Once you have franchised your business as a new franchisor it will be your responsibility to look very closely at exactly the way you do everything in your business, document how this is carried out and achieved and then be able to transfer these skills to new incoming franchisee’s.
