Are you approaching retirement and want to transition into something new and exciting where you’re in charge of a vibrant business? You probably recall us encouraging folks to make opening a franchise business a new year’s resolution. That’s because it’s an awesome way to run a business, especially in the restaurant industry nowadays.
Island Fin Poke would like to share these great reasons to consider franchising with us if you’re looking for a post-retirement second career.
Franchising – A Great Option for Retirees
We think that retirees make some of the best franchise owners because they catch on very quickly, owing to their many life experiences. Even if you’ve never run a business, you might possess many of the skills necessary to thrive as a restaurant general manager.
Here are some of the great traits that many retirees bring to the table for franchising.
- Business experience, including skills like accounting, coaching, and goal setting
- Financial Skills (how to purchase things responsibly)
- Customer Service Skills
- Patience and the ability to embrace delayed gratification
These are just a handful of the many useful characteristics we see in potential franchisees among the newly retired.
Franchising With Island Fin Poke
Where should you go to start a franchise business? Well, you need to identify a good franchisor for a partnership, and it just so happens that Island Fin Poke offers a lucrative franchising program. Running a restaurant business is a lot of fun, but it’s hard to do it alone, which is why greater than 70% of restaurant owners are franchisees for larger companies.
The advantage to that is that we train you, supply with you everything from cooking supplies to surveillance equipment, and always make sure you have everything you need to be successful for as long as you like.
Plus, we’re growing quickly with dozens of locations across 14 states, including Florida, Arizona, and New York. This would be a wonderful opportunity to jump on board a fast-growing hospitality venture and have fun in an exhilarating second career.
Island Fin Poke runs all of its locations as franchise units all under one big Ohana (Hawaiian, for family).
