Here are some quick things to ponder . . .

Do you have a duplicatable marketing system?

Is your customer acquisition strategy something that is teachable? Can franchisees plug into it? Will it work in most markets? Having a proven, duplicatable marketing program is critical to having a successful franchise system.

If you currently get your customers solely from word-of-mouth referrals because you have a generational family business that has been around for a century, that’s not duplicatable. But, if, instead, you have a refined digital marketing system franchisees can directly apply to their local market or a proven networking strategy that anyone can learn, then we’re on the right track.

Does your business require exotic, specialized expertise?

A franchised business needs to be teachable. If you possess a highly advanced knowledge or difficult skill that took years to master, it could be a problem.

Does your business require any hard assets that will be difficult to source and scale?

Does your business require any hard assets that will be difficult to source and scale? Lots of franchises require real estate, equipment and/or vehicles. But if any of these are hard to come by and at the mercy of delicate supply chains, it’s something that will require a hard look.

These are just a few examples of the kinds of things that need to be considered before franchising your business.
