BrightStar Makes Top 30 Franchise List
Many people dream of owning their own business, but sometimes it’s not as easy as just getting a loan and setting up shop. The myriad hoops to jump through and decisions to make combined with the financial risk of starting a brand-new business can be off-putting to even the most dedicated entrepreneur. As a result, many aspiring business owners are attracted to the franchise model.
Franchisees are afforded the opportunity to have the independence of being in business for themselves, but with the support of a bigger company behind them. Established franchises offer new franchisees support from the beginning — assisting in finding the right location, designing and constructing the building, training management and staff, and even help to publicize and organize a grand opening celebration.
Owning a franchise helps new business owners be successful by providing them with immediate brand name recognition and a built-in customer base. Franchisees also benefit from local, regional, and national advertising campaigns, opportunities to purchase supplies in bulk, and continued training and operational support.
In addition to the support they get from franchises, entrepreneurs looking to become franchisees can benefit from a bevy of online sources including the American Association of Franchisees and Dealers (AAFD) and the International Franchise Association (IFA). Both sites offer tips on selecting franchises, acquiring funding, news updates, events, and more.
Franchising is all about making people successful. We’re happy to be on this annual list of 30 top franchise opportunities by Franchise Gator, the leading franchise portal listing of franchise business opportunities.
