THINKING ABOUT GOING INTO BUSINESS FOR YOURSELF?
Does joining a well-established family fast-food chain franchise appeal to you? If you are also a people person, then Burger King® may be the home you are looking for.
It operates over 12 000 successful franchises in the US alone. This company also has successful stores in 74 countries around the world-and is establishing more as you read this. The basis for their success is based on two strong pillars: training and support.
The training is initially over 3 months but continues unabated thereafter. It is intensive and mainly in-restaurant, followed by ongoing support from the designated Director of Franchise Performance. Other areas of training and support include Sales, Profit and Operations coaching, Real Estate management and supply chain management.This attention to detail with each and every franchisee has seen Burger King® (BK) become a publicly listed company with a robust dividend-paying capability. Established in 1954, its franchise division was started seven years later. That is the true meaning of track-record.
Here’s what BK looks for in their prospective franchisees:·
BK Pros & Cons
Becoming part of the BK Franchise family puts you on a well- travelled path to financial success and independence. Their ongoing support program i san industry bench-mark, with numerous testimonials of satisfaction. So, on the one hand your hard work coupled with their franchise model make BK Franchise a logical choice if you meet all the criteria.
On the other hand, let’s face it, the hours are long and are away from home. This may be negative for healthy family relationships in specific instances. Also, rigidly-set working times may repel those hankering after freedom from the nine to five grind. Rigid work times are a move away from the current trend towards flexible – and generally more productive– individualized working hours.
Whilst this franchise has a strong track-record for success, the financial entry barriers also make it inaccessible to many. Considering also the fact that there is a risk of failure (for BK, admittedly a small one), it is worthwhile to cast the net more widely for less risky but equally profitable businesses.
AND which result in enhanced time spent with family ( part of your due diligence)… Such as starting a well-selected home business.
Here’s to your success.
