3 Surprises When Considering a Franchise Business

Starting a new business isn't easy-- about 20 percent of all new companies in the U.S. fail within the first year. However, franchise business ownership is an appealing alternative to those with an entrepreneurial mindset. It offers the independence of having your own business with the benefits of built-in brand awareness. And you might even be surprised by some of the hidden perks and added value that come with investing in a franchise business of your own.

Franchise Owners have the freedom to run and manage their own businesses but can also rely on the resources and guidance of an established national company. Reputable franchise brands have already done the leg work in brand identity and effective marketing strategies so that new owners have a clear roadmap to follow. Unlike starting a new business from the ground up, owners have access to a comprehensive support system.

#3 It Doesn't Have to Cost a Fortune

Start-up fees notwithstanding, new franchise owners are often surprised to discover the value of their enterprise. For example, traditional new businesses often incur substantial expenses in the form of rent, inventory, staff, and advertising. Just the mere cost of trial and error that occurs with the start of any new business adds up quickly.

Coverall is a great example of a franchise that has incredible value built into our business model. In the context of start-up fees, the out-of-pocket costs are surprisingly reasonable and considerably less than many other industries. Coverall Franchise Owners enjoy the savings that come without the need for a brick-and-mortar space, perishable products, outdated inventory, and a large staff. If they stick to a defined budget and purchase cleaning supplies on an as-needed basis, Franchise Owners could potentially have more capital to invest in additional labor and advertising, and even choose to scale up their businesses to take on more customers. Such incredible value is part of what makes an investment in a Coverall Franchise Business so affordable.
