FAQ's

  • Q.
    So what exactly is franchising??
    A.
    Franchising is a type of business set up which involves products or services. Franchising involves two levels of people namely the franchisor and the franchisee. The franchisor is the one who lends his business set up or his business name. The franchisee uses the trade name and business module of the franchisor after paying him a fee or maybe a royalty.
  • Q.
    How does a franchisor make money??
    A.
    In a franchise setup a franchisor sells a franchisee the right to use his business system or tradename for an initial flat fee called the "franchise fee". In addition to this the franchisor also receives payments later on in the form of royalty fees which actually is a percentage of sales that the franchisee makes. Additionally, franchisors can also sell supplies and/or services to their franchisee and earn extra cash.
  • Q.
    Why should I try out franchising??
    A.
    It goes without saying that in order for franchising to be such a huge success there has to be some reasonably good advantages associated with it. To start with, a franchise business makes you an entrepreneur –your own boss. You get the benefit of using the franchisor’s already established business system and his trade name. This gets you instant market recognition. An already existing customer base as well as advertising benefits adds up to the benefits of starting a franchise. Also, when starting your franchise the franchisor provides you with useful marketing tips, general business guidelines, and coaching. The ongoing support which comes in throughout while you work towards setting up your franchise can be invaluable.
  • Q.
    How many types of franchise opportunities are available??
    A.
    Endless! Just about every business model you can think of. From travel agencies to departmental stores almost all business systems have set up a franchise network for themselves. We can help you to check whether your business is frachiseable or not.
  • Q.
    Ok, so I find franchising interesting but what business franchise should I select??
    A.
    Selecting the type of business franchise to invest in involves some methodological research and information collection. To start with, you have to be absolutely clear about your business goals and aspirations. You need to self evaluate yourself and decide the industry in which you think you have the best experience. This would follow with you isolating a product to deal in and studying its market demand and competition. Make sure you do some research into franchise information, including how long they've been in business, what kind of reputation they have amongst your prospective customers, and whether any complaints have been filed against them. Find that cumbersome to deal with? Do not worry and get in touch with the Frantor and we will ensure that we present to you the right kind of franchise options that would have you excited.
  • Q.
    What kind of financial information should I seek from the franchisor when I start up a franchise opportunity??
    A.
    As you investigate a franchise opportunity, make sure you get valid substantiation of any income numbers that the franchisor presents to you. It has been seen that in many cases these income figures are bloated way beyond the actual numbers in order to look attractive. Therefore, make sure the franchisor provides you with written proofs of any claims about income and profit projections. If the franchise refuses to do so then we would advice you to leave.
  • Q.
    What are the steps involved before I sign a franchise agreement??
    A.
    Do not sign agreements about franchise business opportunities without doing a proper investigation. The franchisor would have provided you with a franchise disclosure document. This document lists the key information about the franchise opportunity. It is very important that you study this well and understand it. It is also important to speak to other franchise owners of this franchisor and make a note of their experiences. Having the franchisors litigation records and the accounts books checked too is a good idea. We at The Frantor can help you do a legal due diligence to avoid any issue in the future.
  • Q.
    How to go about investigating franchise business for sale??
    A.
    In addition to the normal enquiries regarding the background of the franchisor and the initial fees charged by him for the franchise, it is also important to scout for some other details too. To begin with you can find out about the other franchise owners associated with this particular franchisor. It would be a good idea to visit the franchisors business and observe their business practices. You could meet up with another franchise owner and enquire about the training and support they have received from the parent company. The Frantor can easily offer you with a legal counsel who is a seasoned specialist in the field of franchising.
  • Q.
    What documents are needed to establish a franchise??
    A.
    In order to get into your franchise business three documents are crucial: the Franchise Disclosure Document, or FDD , the franchise agreement, and an operations manual.
  • Q.
    What Is The Franchise Disclosure Statement??
    A.
    The Franchise Disclosure Document ( FDD) is a legal document. The document is designed to disclose specific information regarding what the franchisor is offering that must be provided to all prospective franchisees before a franchise agreement can be signed. Some of the information in a FDD includes the franchisers business experience, company history and relevant affiliations, litigation history, bankruptcies, franchise fees, initial investment, territory info & restrictions, the and franchisers and franchisees obligations.
