Franchising is one of the most successful business development models:
- providing an entrepreneur willing to start business with three times bigger possibility to stay on the market than starting business on his/her own.
- enabling the owner of a successful business to achieve extremely dynamic pace of business development by opening sometimes even several outlets a day.
Franchising as a business model is based on cooperation between the owner of a successful business concept and entrepreneur willing to start his/her own business. Franchising helps a successful businessman to find a motivated business partner, who for a certain fee is given the right to use the trademarks and business management know-how when opening his/her own unit.
Once a businessman chooses franchising for his/her business development, the basis for rapid development as well as a steady source of incomes are generated for him/her. While a franchisee is provided with franchise package preventing mistakes and high costs of new business concept creation. In addition to franchise package, a franchisee also receives business consulting from a professional, motivated and interested businessman, which helps to achieve prompt and effective business start-up.
