  • Advantages of Franchising Your business is based on a proven idea. You can check how successful other franchises are before committing yourself. You can use a recognised brand name and trade marks. You benefit from any advertising or promotion by the owner of the franchise - the "franchisor". The franchisor gives you support - usually including training, help setting up the business, a manual telling you how to run the business and ongoing advice. Financing the business may be easier. Banks are sometimes more likely to lend money to buy a franchise with a good reputation. Risk is reduced and is shared by the franchisor. If you have an existing customer base you will not have to invest time looking to set one up. Relationships with suppliers have already been established. No need for experience in the sector you choose! Training is provided

  • Disadvantages of Franchising Costs may be higher than you expect. As well as the initial costs of buying the franchise, you pay continuing royalties and you may have to agree to buy products from the franchisor Contract / Agreement may be set for a period may not allow for trial periods. The franchise agreement usually includes restrictions on how you run the business. You might not be able to make changes to suit your local market The franchisor might go out of business, or change the way they do things. Other franchisees could give the brand a bad reputation. You may find it more difficult to sell your franchise - you can only sell it to someone approved by the franchisor You may not like to continually pay Management Service Fees/Royalty Fees and Advertising & Promotional levys

It facilitates achieving scale economies, risk and resource sharing, symbiosis, and rapid geo-expansion. In its public form, it creates utility while simultaneously eliminating learning-curves, and community expense and risk.
