“Franchising takes the guesswork out of starting a business,”
Interested in a Franchise.
It’s no surprise that many people considering opening a business on their own, turn to franchising. With
a built-up brand and supportive network/system, franchisees offer an opportunity to taste maintaining a
business while additionally giving them huge assistance.
“A franchise is a business with training wheels,” said Tom Scarda, a podcast dedicated to franchising.
“For a majority of franchisees, franchising has proven to be a viable way to become a business owner.
For the most part, it offers the lowest risks and the highest level of support. Because a franchiser
doesn’t succeed until the franchisees do, you’ll find a team of dedicated professionals willing and able to
help you every step of the way, from site selection to employee hiring to grand opening.”
“Franchising takes the guesswork out of starting a business,” said Jonathan Barnett, founder and CEO of
Oxi Fresh Carpet Cleaning.

Q-4: Planning for Change in the New Year!
Planning for change in the new year is a strategic and important process, especially if it involves starting a franchise business. Create a Quarter 4 (Q4) plan to execute in the upcoming year:
1. Set Clear Goals and Understand Your WHY:
Reflect on your current situation, your achievements, challenges, and lessons learned. How will starting a business affect you, your family, and often your community?
2. Seek Support for Selection, Funding Options and Accountability:
The selection process is what we do best in finding alignment with you, your qualifications, and brands that make sense. This includes financial qualifications and funding options. On-going support and accountability is what great franchises do well.
3. Stay Flexible:
Many of our clients come to us with one idea and leave with something different. Our focus is not about the brand. It is about the role of the owner and if it can meet your goals.
4. To the Homework – Due Diligence:
It takes time! If your goal is to be in business in the upcoming year, start now! There is a methodical, systematic process of discovery.
5. Execute with Commitment:
Finally, commit to executing your plan with determination and enthusiasm!
Remember that change and growth often require time and effort, so stay patient and persistent throughout the selection process. Contact us – we will save you time and effort!
