Find a Franchise That Aligns With Your Values
by Lynne Rawlinson Jul 05 2017
With thousands of franchise opportunities available, finding the perfect fit is a difficult decision.
There are a number of important considerations such as the investment level vs the potential return, lifestyle changes and the cultural fit.
Franchise companies, like any companies have unique cultures that reflect their brand and the values they live by.
A good franchisor will work hard to maintain and protect that culture by only awarding franchises to owners whose personal values align with the company’s.
Business Doctor franchisees need to be confident and be able to empathise, and show humility. A small business owner needs to trust a potential service provider. Our mantra is ‘pay it forward’ this is where we prove helpful, friendly advice as a means to gain trust.
Why values should be an important consideration when researching a new franchise
As a new franchisee, you will be learning new skills, getting to grips with new systems and perhaps familiarising yourself with a new industry. Your support team will be an invaluable resource in helping you to develop your new business. This requires a high level of trust. Having everyone on the same page ensures a positive relationship.
