Why Franchising Won’t Stifle Your Independence
Franchising continues to grow in Australia, with an estimated 79,000 businesses now operating as part of a franchise (Franchising Council of Australia).
It’s a great way to start a business in the competitive urban Australian market, with a strong name and already established business practices easing the pressure off first-time business owners.
One thing people worry about when considering whether to become part of a franchise is whether it will stifle entrepreneurship and creativity. Will the rules from head office be too strict for innovation?
This is rarely the case. Being a part of a franchise is invaluable in that it gives franchisees the ability to tap into an established business model. However, all business decisions are down to the individual business owner. The owner decides who to hire and who to fire, how to market locally and promote their business as it suits their unique requirements.
