Franchise Buying Tips
You’re finally moving more aggressively into those thoughts of buying a franchise. That’s great news, because now, more than ever is a great time to make that investment. Perhaps it’s a booming economy or consumer confidence, maybe even a little luck, but here at Physical Therapy Now, our franchise businesses are growing at a wonderful pace. There are numerous reasons why this is happening, and one topping the list is that our franchisees are what makes our business a huge success.
So, how did they get to the point they are now? What did it take to be a part of this Entrepreneur listed headline making franchise operation? Read on to find out what they did – and how you can do it too!
They Did Their Homework
Not one of the franchisees at Physical Therapy Now make an uninformed decision. They did in depth research of the how the franchise operation industry works, other franchise businesses – and yes, Physical Therapy Now.
They Found a Great Location
When you need customers, you need a location that isn’t only visible but easily accessible as well. Ample parking, ease of access and multiple locations absolutely play a key role in why Physical Therapy Now has reached such a high level of success.
Some of Them Got Investors
Perhaps they didn’t want to go it alone, or maybe it wasn’t financially possible to become a solo franchisee – but, did our franchisees give up? No way. Getting an investor or investors is a common practice in the franchise business, and without it, some franchisees wouldn’t have been able to open their businesses.
They Chose Carefully
It’s easy to make a rash decision when you see a company like Physical Therapy Now growing so rapidly. We know… it’s an exciting adventure! However, it is imperative that you choose the company with which you will be working with great care. No rushing. Take your time and make informed choice.
From The Entrepreneur Experts
Entrepreneur recently featured an article with some great franchise tips. Like us here at Physical Therapy Now, they recommend contacting the franchisor corporate offices during your researching process.
The author, Mark Siebert writes, “It will typically be able to provide you with a wealth of information, including the franchise disclosure document (FDD), franchise brochures or other promotional materials, links to franchisee testimonials, and perhaps information on the industry in general.”
Another great tip: get to franchise trade shows.
“Franchise shows in particular will give you an opportunity to speak with several hundred franchisors from a variety of industries in just a couple of days,” Siebert says.
A trade show is how one of our newest franchisees discovered Physical Therapy Now – and she’s set to open not just one… not two… but THREE Physical Therapy Now locations! Kim Johner’s first location in Cape Coral is set to open in the coming weeks.
