FRANCHISING (HOW IT WORKS)
One question potential franchisees sometimes ask is, “Why should I buy a franchise? Why can’t I just go out and start my own business?”
The real value of a franchise is what you gain from the experience, know-how and operating plan that come with it.
Without the professional training, business experience, or connections it takes to succeed, it is difficult to get off the ground. Many small business owners even hire outside individuals with experience just for advice. Face it; opening your own business independently takes time and money.
The advantage to franchising is that, with the right opportunity, it provides you with a series of benefits that it might take years to develop on your own – if you develop them at all. The KIDS FIRST® Swim Schools opportunity gives you the ready-made framework within which to build a successful business.
For example, as a franchisee, you enjoy advantages that put you light years ahead of the independent business operator. Name-brand recognition and a network of support provide an immediate and distinct competitive edge over the independent, stand-alone business. You can avoid that costly trial-and-error period that causes so many problems for start-up businesses. As a franchisee, you’ll “hit the ground running.”
As a KIDS FIRST® Swim Schools franchisee you will enjoy job security as your own boss, working with a business model that has a proven success formula. The KIDS FIRST® Swim Schools opportunity provides you with ownership of a unique business with limited competition – a business that won’t go out of vogue and that does well in any economy.
Each year, more than $800 billion in goods and services are sold through franchises in the United States. There are over 550,000 individual franchise outlets nationally, and each working day, a new franchise opens every five minutes.
