Start Your Franchise Today
Before starting any business venture, it’s important you are well informed. At BELFOR Franchise Group, we’ve made it easier by compiling a list of commonly asked franchising questions. Check out the answers below.
What is franchising?
Franchising is a method of providing services or products to the wider audience and usually consists of two parties – the franchisor and the franchisee. The franchisor lends their trademark/brand and business to the franchisee, who in turn provides the product or service to the public.
What is “business format” franchising?
Business format franchising is the method where the franchisor provides a step-by-step guide to how the franchisee can run the establishment. This often takes out the guesswork of trying to find a method that works. At BELFOR Franchise Group, we have turnkey models that have been proven effective.
How does a franchise chain start?
If an existing business is successful in its venture, the owner may want to expand their company. They’ll do this by opening locations in other areas and hiring employees to manage the company. Thus, a franchising chain is created.
How widespread is franchising?
Franchising is one of the fastest growing mode of business, with franchises existing for companies across all industries. Research shows that the franchises expected to grow most include personal services, business services, retail products, and quick service restaurants.
