There are a few distinct character traits within all franchisees.
It’s not to say that these traits are absolute and only those who encompass them are perfect fits.
Instead, we all recognise that there are people who sway away from the mould and are equally successful. But at the end of the day, the ideal franchisee embodies the sound qualities and values that the parent franchise upholds.
So just who makes an ideal franchisee? Do you fit the mould? Do you know someone who would be the perfect for a Home Sorted! franchise?
Qualities to have
The ideal franchisee has passion for the brand/business they are purchasing into. Without a direct passion for the product or service they will not be able to uphold the commitment and values the franchise maintains.
They recognise that they are not going to become large scale entrepreneurs. People who buy franchises are not going to break the mould and system.
They are buying into an established system and need to see that the creative vision they have for the company may be better suited to a small business without the constrictions and rules that of a Franchise.
That’s not to say that these rules don’t come with an advantage. Buying a franchise allows you to purchase into a household name and a system of proven success!
Previous experience within the industry or transferrable skills also help create the ideal franchisee. That is not to say you need to be an expert in the field you are purchasing into. Dedication to learning can be just as desirable of a quality, however having knowledge and experience will definitely put you at a distinct advantage over competing franchises.
Qualities to leave behind
As the ideal franchisee there are a handful of qualities that are best left behind. As a franchisee you are buying into a prebuilt system and business that comes with procedures and rules to follow.
People who are independent minded and have no room for compromise often cannot adapt to these structures and can run into issues along the way. Additionally, stubbornness and rule breakers fall into this category.
Maintaining a positive, flexible approach is key for the ideal franchisee. Whilst these are not hard and fast rules to follow, they offer up a broad approach to just who suits the franchisee lifestyle.
