Why Invest In A Franchise

According to a recent survey 90% of franchises report profitability in the first two years, compared to 50% of independent businesses going bust in that period of time. When you buy a franchise you are buying a tried-and-tested business model coupled with a team of experts who are there to support you every step of the way so that you don’t have to face the trials of business ownership on your own.

The advantages of investing in a franchise are many and far outweigh the disadvantages.

  • Using a proven business model and brand
  • Using an established brand
  • A licence to use the brand and systems
  • Support from an expert team
  • Having more credibility to secure funds from banks for the venture
  • Having ongoing operational and marketing support
  • Benefiting from invaluable training
  • Access to an Operations manual
  • Access to operating systems
  • Access to preferred and nominated suppliers
  • Reduced risk
  • Control over your earnings
  • No need to reinvent the wheel

These above make the franchisee’s task of setting up his/her store much easier. In general terms, the disadvantages of a franchise are the following:

  • Losing out on royalty fees
  • Need to respect branding and operations guidelines
  • Restrictions on trade and territories
  • Entry costs
  • Potential reliance on the franchisor

However, while the pros by far outweigh the cons in a fiercely competitive environment, some of the disadvantages can be minimized with meaningful discussions.

The G Factory Team

When you buy the franchise you will be supported by a highly experienced leadership team. Who are The G Factory team members? Founders and team members have decades of experience and are leaders in their field.

He was also commissioned to create a butter sculpture for the TV show Ant & Dec and lately has also been filmed by Channel 5 during the creation of the 7’ chocolate sculpture. Chris is a proud member of England National Culinary Team and has represented Great Britain in various international competitions, amongst which was the Coupe du Monde de la Patisserie in Lyon, France.
