Top common pitfalls of owning a franchise and how has Transblue made those Positive

If you’re looking to become a business owner, buying a franchise might be your ticket to self-employment. Rather than have to come up with a unique business idea and map it out, by buying a franchise, you’re simply piggybacking on the success of an already established brand. It’s a great way to take the leap into self-employment without bearing the same level of financial risk brand-new businesses inevitably face.

But owning a franchise isn’t all rosy. There are certain snags you might encounter if you go the franchise route, and Transblue has helpful solutions to those that are unique to franchising.

You might face some hefty start-up and on-going costs

Opening a business takes money, and that shouldn’t come as a surprise. But you may be shocked at how expensive it is to get your franchise off the ground, especially when you factor in costs such as startup costs, equipment, vehicles, tools, staff, etc. Before you buy a franchise, review the initial requirements involved and make sure they make sense financially.

At Transblue we have off-set this typical franchise cost challenge with a truly unique return on investment proposition.

You may not get the support you need

As mentioned earlier, one benefit of owning a franchise is gaining the support of a large company to help ensure your success. But that support may be harder to come by than expected. You may come to find that your franchiser isn’t all that invested in seeing your business thrive, especially if your location isn’t a particular priority or the company is sinking its resources into other things. As such, you may come to find that you’re paying a royalty for the use of a recognized name and nothing else.
