What You Should Know Before Buying Any Franchise
As an emerging franchise, at Click IT, we are very conscientious that the success of our franchise owners will determine our own success. Therefore, we are very focused on the success of our franchisees and every waking hour, are working to assure this, as no other franchise can.
In this video, you'll receive some really sound advice from experts at a recent franchise industry exposition, which is some of what you should know before purchasing any franchise.
Here's a Summary of What They Have to Say & What Click IT Has to Offer:
Be Prepared - Figure Out Your Available Capital First: It may be the amount of available capital (or obtainable capital through getting an SBA loan, for instance), that may determine what you can afford to do, and what you should not be looking at. You want to know this upfront and what all the costs are so you don't spend time on researching a franchise you can't afford.
A Click IT franchise requires less liquid capital than most franchises, which typically are more expensive, demand more capital and net worth.
This may be the only cash you'll need, depending on your credit score and ability to get a loan. At Click IT, we are prepared to assist you in finding financing with our in-house counsel.
We have a partnership with a funding source: Click here for more information and to see the funding programs offered.
When you sign our franchise agreement, you have 180 days to open your Click IT Store. This gives you plenty of time to find a location, sign the lease, build out the fixtures, prepare your marketing and open for business. We help you along the entire way, including providing up-to-date build-out items which can be found at our company shop. (See https://shop.clickitgroup.com.)
Do a Thorough Investigation of The Franchise You're Interested in: When shopping for a franchise, find out how long the company has been in existence, what level of experience they have, and talk to people affiliated with the company, including their customers. Get to know the people involved. Understand the opportunity. Read any reviews you can find and study the reputation of the company. Ask any questions you have and be sure your answers are satisfactory.
Feel comfortable with the people running the franchise. Are they the people you want to partner with and can trust? Are they focused on your success? Be clear about finding exactly the level of support you'll get and make sure you're comfortable with it.
Click IT was begun in July 2012 and has a stellar reputation throughout the community. Our BBB rating is A+, the highest obtainable. We have thousands of satisfied customers. (See Our Testimonials, which contains independent reviews.) Right upfront, we provide 40 hours of training, both in the classroom, in a training facility, and at our company store. You will have hands-on experience long before you open your store.
Don't Worry So Much About How Many Franchise Units the Franchise Has: The experts advise to focus on what the franchise growth plan is, what their management team is like, what their infrastructure is, and most importantly, what their system is. Do they have a 'system'? (A 'system' is a methodology of how to operate their business.) When you buy a franchise, you're buying a system.
"Technology is Never Going Away & There Will Always Be a Need for a Local, Trustworthy Click IT Store."
Click IT has a complete and proven system we started developing at our company store in 2012 so that now we can turn it over confidently to our franchise owners, and teach them how to duplicate our success. "The system runs the business and you run the system when you buy a franchise."
Also, why buy a franchise that does just one thing? A Click IT Franchise will provide the know-how and tools necessary to complete every task an I.T. department needs to have the skillset nowadays to do. And, if you have a preference for one type of service over another, you can pick and choose what the areas of your main focus will be. No other franchise in our category enables you to do this.
Our royalty is just 6% (which is at the low end of the spectrum), there are no additional fees that can bring this amount much higher, and you as the franchise owner get a lot of value for this.
This is an excerpt of Stacy Swift of FranNet talking about purchasing a franchise as an investment. In this excerpt, Stacy mentions how the government allows people to use their retirement money to invest in a franchise without penalty.
