Your Employees Have To Have These Two Things!

Posted by Briana Hall on Mon, Aug 19, 2019 @ 09:08 AM

Today there are two things as employer you want your staff to have: a great work ethic and a great attitude. Neither of these are things that can be taught, but are essential when having a great team of people at work.

Essentails-for-your-employees

When you buy a franchise there are lots of things that the franchisor will teach you. The systems that a franchise has and how well you follow those systems may ultimately be the difference between your success or failure. One area that you will have the most control over is your staff and employees. Your franchisor will help you with build-out, initial and on-going training support, marketing, even guidance on getting to break even and beyond, but you will have to manage your staff. Your Human capital is one of the most vital parts of your franchise operations for a number of reasons. Your employees deliver your product, they are the face of your business, they create the fabulous experience that brings your customers coming back, they create those little interactions that make your customers think, " Wow, this company really gets me". Developing a great staff doesn't happen over night, it takes time. Additionally, if your new hires don't have the following two attributes, getting your franchise to where you want it to be is going to take longer than planned. 

 

* A Work EthicYou can't teach someone to have a work ethic. Work ethic is a tricky thing, some people have it out of need, they have a family and need to support and provide for their family. Some people learned it from there parents and are modeling it. But one thing is for sure, if you are going to put together a great team, having employees with a good work ethic is critical. 

 

* AttitudeI have heard people say, "That person needs an attitude adjustment", and you know I have seen that work, but only on a temporary basis. You know what behavioral psychologists will tell you, past behavior is the best predictor of future behavior. Companies spend a great deal of time and money working with and trying to fix people with bad attitudes. Find people with a good attitude about your company right from the beginning, nurture and train them, show them there valued, and your people will work together as a team. 

 

Getting your staff to work together as a team to create a fantastic customer experience is crucial to your franchises success. During the interview process you can ask questions that will give you clues on whether your candidate has these two important attributes. You are going get to where you want to go a lot faster if you can find candidates that have these two attributes.

Why Do People Miss This When Looking For a Franchise?

Posted by Briana Hall on Wed, Aug 7, 2019 @ 15:08 PM

The moving parts of creating a successful business all stem from one important factor. While there are a lot of key components that go into creating a successful business, if you forget about this one, your structure is going to come crashing down.

What-are-you-missing

There are lots of moving parts to a franchise, including your franchisors opening assistance, training and ongoing support. All of the aforementioned are important to your success as a franchisee, and the best way to measure these are to talk to current franchisees. 

 
As important as all these factors are, many people looking to buy a franchise fail to look at what is arguably the most important component of all: the customer. More specifically, how many customers are there for your concept where you want to open? Or, how many times will they come back in a given year, and how long can you hold on to them? This is called customer long term value, or CLV, and it can be the difference between your success or failure. 
 
Think about this, would you rather own a business where your customer comes back twice a year, or 8 times a year? Will they come back for the next 2 years, or the next 8? Will you be able to create a loyal customer or one that only needs your service once or twice per year?
 
Customers are fickle! Make sure that you have lots of them in your trade area, and that the franchise you are looking at can hold on to them for a long time.

Every Successful Franchise Has ONE Thing In Common

Posted by Briana Hall on Wed, Jul 31, 2019 @ 09:07 AM

There is a difference between doing well and succeeding. Not every franchise is going to be the same when it comes to making that perfect formula either, but there are 3 things you can do to ensure that you are off to a good start!

Determination-to-Succeed

I was recently reading a Franchise Times magazine and stumbled across an article about someone who had built up several franchise systems. He had grown to where between the two he had over 700 Units! As I continued to read, it just so happened that he was a neighbor of mine in Overland Park Kansas.  I connected with him on LinkedIn and was not surprised to learn that he had the one trait that EVERY single successful franchisee I have every talked to has, a Determination To Succeed. You can buy into the greatest franchise concept ever invented but without the determination to succeed it may not be enough. Some other pearls of wisdom that he shared with me. 

- You may not get it right the first time 

- Focus on the one thing that you can change - the customer experience 

- Keep learning as you go along 

Franchising is a proven business model and the amount of money spent at franchises every year is staggering. But it's still hard work, and there will be times when the only thing that will push you through and get you over the hump is that one thing that all successful franchisees have, the Determination to Succeed 

 

Success is yours TODAY!

5 Reasons NOT To Grow Your Franchise

Posted by Briana Hall on Fri, Jul 26, 2019 @ 09:07 AM

Quality over Quantity when trying to build a business. There are many reasons to grow and expand, but here are some things to think about before you take the next step in expansion.

5 Reasons NOT to Grow your Franchise-01 I know this sounds counter intuitive to every thing that you have heard about building franchise systems. Last week I wrote about my neighbor who had grown his two franchise systems to over 700 units. But there are times to step back and NOT grow your franchise  business, here are the 5 top reasons

* Increased Risk - With growth becomes more financial obligations to both your businesses and your team. Build a cash flow model and make sure that your revenue can support the additional obligations that you will be taking on. 

* Increased Workload and Stress - Growing a business is tough, on you, your teams, your family. It means working longer hours, bigger responsibilities, more complicated structure, more supervision and more complicated operations. 

* Drop in Quality -  Growth unfortunately can come with a drop off in service quality. You have worked hard to build up an A team, can you keep finding those A players while you grow that deliver that fantastic customer experience? 

* Increased Cost - More revenue is almost always accompanied by increased expenses. Whether in time or money, growing a business will cost you. Financial planning is crucial.

* Loss of Direct Control - Taking on more staff, growing your customer base, extending your network of suppliers, will all put additional stress on your systems and processes.  Being able to delegate duties to the right people and having them follow through may prove challenging. 

Here's the bottom line, if you like to control every aspect of your business, have trouble delegating responsibility or you are not consistent in following your franchisors system's. It may be best to step back and NOT grow your franchise, at least until you feel comfortable that you understand what it's going to take to grow successfully!

2018: A Year of Record Revenue & Growth!

Posted by Matthew S on Fri, Jan 25, 2019 @ 12:01 PM

Continuing to build our brand & infrastructure was a major goal in 2018, as well as engaging franchise candidates who would like to join our Shear Madness family!

intranet2

We continued to build out our intranet site and make it a valuable hub of information for our franchise partners. Our intranet site houses our proprietary and award winning training manuals and modules along with housing our franchisee friendly library of marketing materials. 

redesign2

Additionally we redesigned our website to make it more mobile friendly and usable for customers looking for our locations, as well as to capture and inform more franchise candidates on our award winning system. After our redesign we had a top rated franchise media company grade our website and it received high marks for usability and overall appearance. You can visit it at Shear Madness Franchising. Let us know what you think!

francomparebutton3

As with most franchise systems, building our brand is a constant goal. In 2018 we were awarded the Number One Children's salon franchise in America by Francompare, an independent rating service based in Oakland California. Francompare uses a sophisticated 45 point rating system when grading franchises and has an exhaustive database of franchise disclosure documents that they comb through before they give out their franchise winners. 

2019a

We look forward to 2019 and to continue to build on what is most important to us: being selective in our franchise awarding process and awarding franchises to those candidates that understand our culture. Equally important to us is giving our current franchisees the ongoing support, training and marketing assistance that they need to be successful. We also strive to create an over the top customer experience. At Shear Madness Haircuts for kids, Where Every Child Matters is more than just a slogan, it's what we believe in and why we do what we do. It's why we exist! We're confident that 2019 will be our best year ever!

The Pain That You're Missing in Franchise Selection?!?

Posted by Jim Otto on Thu, Nov 15, 2018 @ 16:11 PM

ouchMany of you may have seen a show on TV called Shark Tank. If you haven't, entrepreneurs attempt to convince 6 highly successful business people as to why they should invest their money in the next great business idea. Most businesses start this way and unfortunately it's probably one of the biggest reasons for business failure! 
 
Many people start their search for a franchise without measuring the most important thing: are there customers for the franchise? More importantly - and don't miss this - is doing what you are doing so PAINFUL (so-to-speak) for the customer to do themselves, that they have to come to you?  In business we call this the Shark Bite (no correlation to the Shark Tank). If your customer can do it themselves or go to you, well that may be like a mosquito bite - and it may be a nuisance that they are willing to live with. However if the customer's pain feels something like a shark bite, then customers will be eager to pay you to ease their pain!  
 
Great businesses and franchises begin by solving a customer problem.  This is why it's so important to try and figure out if the franchise that you are buying solves the pain your customers are feeling. For example, take our Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids salon franchise. I know that many of you reading this may be parents, and let's be honest...have you ever tried to cut your two year old's hair? Trust me, it's a shark bite,  and our customers are more then happy to have one of our award winning stylist ease there pain vs. trying to do it on their own. And with our TVs and XBox games  at every station to help provide a positive distraction for their children, they end up coming back for years!
 
So before you select a franchise, focus on the BIG pain point. Remember that any big problem is a big opportunity, and customers will be more then happy to pay you to ease their pain.

The Best Franchise in Child Hair Care!

Posted by Matthew S on Thu, Sep 13, 2018 @ 11:09 AM

francomparesmfaward

Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids is really proud to have recently been selected as the “winner” of the 2018 FranCompare™ Franchise Recognition Program. After comparing and weighing over 40 FDD-based data points for four of the major franchise systems in the Child Hair Care industry, Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids received the highest score!

Janon Otto, CEO of Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids, as well as owner of two Shear Madness locations, says that, "We have worked hard to provide services to our franchisees that other franchise systems do not have.  We are constantly looking for ways to increase margins, and other opportunities for our franchisees to increase profits.  We also have worked hard to provide an internal intranet service that helps not only owners, but all employees to do their jobs better!  Our franchisees are wonderful and we all share information that helps everyone get better!  

Janon also notes that, "Shear Madness Franchising is open with figures from all of our locations, from service sales detail, down to detailed retail sales so that we can all learn from each other and motivate our staff to be the best that they can be within the system!  We are never finished with our goal of developing the 'Franchise system by which all others are measured!'"

With its extensive product line of books, websites, databases, and consulting services, the World Franchising Network is a preeminent supplier of reliable, up-to-date and easy-to-use information on franchising. The primary focus of FranCompare™ is to determine those franchise systems that have better identifiable performance metrics than their direct competitors. FranCompare™ and the World Franchising Network are also committed to assisting individuals in their quest for self-employment and business ownership. They seek to provide prospective franchisees with the most comprehensive and up-to-date information on the franchise systems we consider the “best” from over 4,000 active North American franchisors. They also feel strongly that the operating and system advantages that franchising offers make it the preferred avenue for 95% of those who want to go into business on their own. Want to learn more?

5 Questions to Ask before Opening a Second Location

Posted by Jim Otto on Mon, Aug 13, 2018 @ 12:08 PM

5guidelines.jpgThe idea of owning multiple stores when you buy into a franchise is appealing. So why do so many people fail at it? Here are some guidelines for economy of scale that we use in our children's salons:

  • Never open multiple stores at one time: Your steepest learning curve will be at your first location. If that location is successful, number two, three and four become easier.
  • Find the right people and trust them: At Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids we call these people “charismatic connectors”. They have the organizational skills, leadership skills and understand numbers - and the ability to manage multiple locations for you!
  • Make sure the numbers work: At our children's salons we have a number that tells us how many services a day you should do before you even think about opening another Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids salon. You should never move forward to opening another salon until you hit those metrics.
  • Know your customer: After your first location you should have a rock solid idea of who your customer is: where they live, how much money they have and WHY they are your customer. This should give you a blue print for your second location.
  • Never stop learning: They say in business that the only constant is change. Now more than ever that holds true. Ways of marketing change daily, customers are fickle, and brand awareness is vital. If you like a challenge, you should do well!

Owning multiple locations is an exciting way to build a future income stream for yourself and your family. Just remember one thing, business is a marathon and not a sprint!

Why Your Franchise Isn't Performing Like You Thought It Would

Posted by Jim Otto on Mon, Aug 13, 2018 @ 12:08 PM

whyI was recently on a website where franchisees can go to complain about there franchisors. The common  theme amongst the complaints was that the franchisor made a lot of promises that they didn't keep, the numbers weren't adding up like the franchisor said they would and they weren't being trained properly.
 
Of course, it's important to understand that when you buy a franchise, you'll need to wear  a lot of hats! Not only are you the head of operations, but you will need to recruit the best employees and constantly train them, give customers great service, track the numbers and watch your expenses and keep your finger on the pulse of your business. 
 
There are lots of reasons that franchises fail. Running a business is not for the faint of heart. But if you bought into a franchise, you bought into a system or process that has succeeded at some level. So my suggestion is if your franchise is not performing like you want it to, make sure that you are following the system! Franchisees often get their business up and running and then begin to change or modify existing services, advertising, products and even the quality and consistency of the customer service that they are delivering. This not only can lead to poor franchise performance, but can unfortunately be a violation of the franchise agreement as well. Yikes! So long story short, you'll definitely want to be sure to follow the franchise system you invested in, as it's a proven model for success!
