I did not feel comfortable with the franchise model, I feel it is expensive and all you are doing as a franchisee is paying lots of money to help build someone else’s brand. Why not build your own so you are always in full control.
When buying a franchise what would happen to YOUR business if:
- They went bankrupt
- You fell out with them
- You didn’t enjoy it and wanted to quit before the end of your contract
- You wanted to inject your own personality onto YOUR business but were not allowed.
- You could not meet their targets
I just felt tying mums up in this sort of contract at such an exciting time felt wrong and knew there must be a better way. This is when I developed a more suitable model for Mums.
You get all the benefits as you would from a franchise
- Proven Model
- Support network/community of related businesses
- Quick Start with templates
- Starter Pack
- Marketing training
- High investment
- Large targets
- High monthly fees
But none of the downsides:
By working in the way we work you get access to a group of businesses who are all trying to do what you are doing but are further along the line. They can share guidance, tips and support as you start this amazing journey and in exchange you support and share your tips too. It is a win win and one of the many benefits of working with The Keepsake Co.
