Have you finally had enough of the hamster wheel of corporate America? Would you rather have more career discretion and do away with all the micromanaging from less competent bosses?
If you answered yes to those questions, then you’ll want to mull over the possibility of starting a franchise business. The beauty of franchising is that you don’t have to invent something brand new from scratch, but can instead enjoy the chance to work WITH a partner rather than FOR a boss. We’ll explain how this works in more detail.
Escape Corporate America with Franchise Opportunities
Island Fin Poke always emphasizes the positive benefits of franchise opportunities for two primary reasons: 1) It’s how we choose to operate, and 2) It’s the perfect medium between solo ownership and being someone’s employee.
The franchise business arrangement is where a “franchisee” invests in a franchise business that they’ll run on behalf of a larger company, who’s already developed a winning business model. Many popular companies like 7-11, McDonald’s, and Subway do this by partnering with entrepreneurs who will own and manage their individual gas stations and restaurants. Another name for the parent company includes the term, “franchisor.”
Why has this become so popular?
It’s easy to see why folks appreciate this approach. In exchange for an initial startup investment, a new franchisee gets to run their own business by plugging into a working system with plenty of training and support. Best of all, this comes without the heavy-handed micromanaging you always get from Fortune 500 employers.
So, if you want to be done with the domineering boss, and experience a more equitable and adult partnership, then franchising is the way to go. It gives you legitimate mentorship opportunities (because going solo is daunting and rarely works), but minus all the corporate office politics.
Important Data & Figures on Franchising
Finally, let’s go over some fascinating data that may sway you over to the franchising camp for good. These are figures based on survey research (from Franchise Business Review) that polls franchisees on their experiences as a franchise business owner.
- 73% say that if they could do it all over again, they would.
- 80% believe their franchisor exhibits high levels of honesty and integrity.
- 85% have a positive disposition toward their affiliation with their franchisor.
- 90% of respondents say they enjoy operating a franchise business.
Those are pretty solid numbers in favor of franchising. While there’s a lot of planning and decision-making prior to launching a franchise business, this should motivate you to consider leaving conventional employment once and for all. Since there is an alternative to the corporate rat race, why not at least inquire into how it works?
If you decide to take the plunge into the bold world of franchising, then Island Fin Poke can’t wait to hear from you. We have franchise locations launching and growing all over the country. Perhaps you’d make a great fit with us as well.
