You’ve decided it’s time to take a leap and run your own franchise – congratulations! This is an exciting time but it’s also one full of important decisions, such as how to find a franchise that fits.
This is where we can help! In order to find a franchise that fits you and your lifestyle…
You must first get to know yourself…
Figure out your goals and priorities
Deciding to own a franchise is not a decision to be made lightly or one to be rushed. Take time to figure out your goals – both personal and professional – and priorities to gain a full understanding of what kind of role you are searching for.
Decide how much time you are willing to commit
Many people view franchises as a quick and easy business opportunity. This is not the case and growing a successful franchise will take time and effort. For this reason, we recommend setting a realistic goal for how much time you are willing to commit. This will vary depending on personal circumstances and whether you will operate the franchise full time or maintain additional employment or responsibilities, such as childcare.
Consider your skills and interests
This is also a vital time to consider your skills and interests. Do you have a hobby – say, home organising – that could be turned into a rewarding career? Do you have business skills that could be utilised in running your own business? Or are you looking to branch out entirely and lean on the systems and support that your future franchisor will provide? Asking yourself these questions will help determine what kind of business opportunity you are best suited for.
Then get to know the potential franchise…
Learn about the home organising industry
Demand for home organising continues to grow. Consumers are seeking services that allow them to feel calm and relaxed at home. They want to achieve picture-perfect pantries and wardrobes – and they need our assistance doing so!
But it doesn’t stop there. Home organising covers a wide range of services, including home sorting, home styling, home staging, and extra hands-on help when selling or relocating to a new home.
You could say potential clients are anyone who owns a home! And just like hiring a cleaner the home organising industry is ready to help.
Do your due diligence
When researching a potential franchise, be sure to complete your due diligence. This means speaking to the franchisor, learning about the business, as well as completing your own independent research on the industry.
You may choose to speak to other franchisees to learn about their experiences – both good and bad – or take a deep dive into industry specific details to learn how your franchise will fit into the pre-existing industry.
