It wouldn’t be honest to say that joining a franchise can be made hassle-free. No matter how you play your cards, you’ll be taking on a lot of work to start your own business and support the growth of a pet care franchise. Statistics indicate that by the end of their fifth year, roughly 50 percent of small businesses fail. However, there are ways to improve your chances of success and minimize the growing pains of a new franchise, and that’s by joining an established, national pet care franchise!
Starting a business from scratch is a tall order, especially if you don’t have a lot of experience in the industry – or even in business. This is why more and more people decide to take on the unique opportunity that franchises provide. Any new business will run into unpredictable challenges, but franchises can help eliminate a lot of the guesswork that comes with the startup process.
The following are some of the common hassles that you can avoid by joining a national franchise like All American Pet Resorts:
Establishing name recognition:
A big part of running a business is representing a brand and working to maintain a certain reputation. Customers tend to be skeptical of things that are unfamiliar, so new businesses have the added burden of having to boost their brand and introduce themselves to the public. When you join a national franchise, you immediately benefit from instant name recognition. This can make a big difference when it comes to getting customers to notice you once your location is up and running.
Research, development and startup:
If you’re new to owning a business, we’ll keep this simple: starting a new business is very difficult! Fresh businesses often require extensive research and development in order to put all of your ducks in a row, so to speak. Crafting a plan for an entire operation and establishing a model are not things that come naturally to most people. This is why joining a franchise is a worthy investment. By joining a business that has established a model that works, you get to skip the unnecessary leg work. Plus, you enjoy the peace of mind that comes with a business plan that has been tested and proven to be successful.
Making big decisions alone:
If you aren’t secure in your business acumen, making the inevitable big decisions for your company can be an exhausting task. Whether you’re doing extensive research before each decision or just taking a shot in the dark, the uncertainty of making your own choices can start to weigh on you. As a franchisee, you’re never alone in the business process. Franchisees at All American Pet Resorts receive reliable support from a franchise staff that knows exactly what position you’re in. Like other franchisors, we aim to be a partner to your operation; this includes helping you manage the design and development of your facility, the design of your business Website & marketing materials, and even the organization of your schedules up to opening day!
