How to select the best franchise opportunity

A new year leads many people to start re-considering their career. If you want to own your own business, start searching for the best franchise opportunity. At Redstones, we advise individuals to make the right choice for their career by investigating the following factors,

if they’re interested in owning a franchise:

Proven track record of success – Any effective franchise will have developed a business model that generates strong results. In our case, this business model includes Redstones Platinum Total Care and our innovative ‘Switch Agents’ programme. Always verify business results and speak to existing franchisees about the success they are achieving before deciding whether a business opportunity is for you. At Redstones, we ensure that every potential business owner understands how the way we conduct business offers us an advantage in the competitive property business market.

Strong brand – As opposed to operating as an independent business, one of the most significant benefits of franchising is buying into a brand that represents existing value for stakeholders. Redstones strong position in the market and many client testimonials from our landlords, tenants and vendors reassure new franchisees of our strong brand.

Continuous support Redstones are genuinely interested in supporting our franchisees to succeed both when they begin and whilst their business is becoming established. For this reason, we offer comprehensive training and materials on the best methods of running your business, in addition to advice on dealing with any difficulties. Furthermore, we are always on hand to support you if you hit a rough patch or want to suggest new ideas for business growth.

Marketing magic – A good franchisor should guide and support their franchisee with tips on tailored marketing techniques that work for the specific industry. Redstones can advise on proven strategies and tools for attracting and retaining business in the property sector. Going over and above what our competitors offer, we are providing new franchisees that join our network in 2016 with the Redstones Marketing Ready Package, worth over £7,000.

Helping Redstones franchises ‘go for growth’

At Redstones, we are committed to helping our franchisees to grow their business.

Many of our successful franchisees are in the fortunate position of being able to expand and our skilled and experienced Business Acquisition team are committed to helping them flourish by acquiring existing property companies, including their property portfolio and letting databases.

The team guide franchisees wanting to expand through the entire acquisition process, including finding the businesses that are the best fit for the franchisee, financing the business deal and managing the entire legal process involved.

Earle Kenlay, Director of Redstones in Hale & Altrincham is in the early stages of reviewing business expansion plans. He says, “I am still new to the business and although I have always planned to grow, I didn’t expect it to happen quite so quickly. The Redstones Business Acquisition team have been very supportive and helpful in the process, which includes offering advice on financing options.”
