Real Estate

Finding the best real estate for your franchise is challenging and competitive, whether building anew or remodelling an existing location. Site selection is complicated and “A” locations are both hard to come by and expensive. Using a real estate broker to help find the optimal sites and negotiate the best contract is common practice. Seek legal advice to ensure you’re receiving the optimum tenant improvements and landlord benefits.

We ended our previous discussion of service concepts with the point that many of these businesses are based on customers making the choice to trade money (surplus) for time (deficit).

For starters, try reduced franchise fees, lower overall startup costs, smaller real estate fees (none for kiosks!), fewer employees, and for some, the option of beginning part-time.

Home-based franchise businesses appeal to entrepreneurs for many good reasons. For some, it provides a relief from the daily commute. For others it represents a break from the corporate rat race.
