Rebecca joins us today to share her story and her expertise in the world of franchising. We talk about the benefits of franchising vs starting from scratch, such as lower risk of failure, group buying power with other franchisees, and easier access to funding. We discuss some of the things you should consider when looking into a potential franchisor, including your alignment with their values and culture, their stage of growth, and whether you might have a similar personality to other high-performing franchisees in the company. We also share some tips for success, such as having the right team to get you started, understanding that the franchisor is there to help you, and talking to other franchisees to get a feel for your potential fit before choosing a franchise.
“The tagline of franchising is ‘You’re in business for yourself, but you’re not in business by yourself.’” – Rebecca Monet
