Franchising, by Laurent Dubernais, President of AGT
“Managing a franchise brand without AGT is like driving to an unfamiliar destination without a GPS”
Why do future franchisees want to team up with a brand?
There are several important factors that push businesses to join a franchise brand. The first piece is the purchasing power of the head office. Thanks to high volume of purchases, every franchisee will buy products at better cost, which improves immediately the profitability of the franchisee.
The second piece is the franchisor know-how: the brand knows better than anyone else how to successfully run the business they are in. Franchisees expect best practices from franchisor.
The third piece is the capacity of franchisor to provide an efficient toolkit to franchisees so they can run their business and make profits: business plans, budgets, reports, benchmarks, sales and other KPIs analysis…
The fourth piece would be the capacity of franchisor to bring a constant support in keeping the brand at its highest level of quality (product, service, facility…).
