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!

Watch This Metric To Find Franchise Success

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

watchingThere are lots of moving parts to a franchise, including your franchisor's 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.

Why You Picked the Wrong Franchise

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

wrongfranchiseI was floored recently when I talked to a friend of mine about the franchise she bought. You see this wasn't what  I would call your "typical" franchisee. Jane (as I will call her for the sake of this blog) has been in the franchise consulting business for 25 years. She has trained and taught both franchisees and franchisors about what to look for in a franchise, how to run a successful franchise business and what makes franchisees successful. 

After years of consulting and teaching, Jane had decided about a year ago to buy into a franchise. Unfortunately, it failed after less than a year. With all of her expertise, all of her knowledge and all of her coaching, she forgot to ask herself one of the most important questions, "Can I see myself in this business?" People tend to look at franchises by how much money they can make and the cost of the franchise without ever stopping to look at what their day-to-day lives will look like. 
 
Most of us are creatures of habit. We pretty much follow the same daily routines like planning vacations in advance, or trying to schedule our lives the best we can.  As humans we get into our "comfort zones". The problem is that when you become a franchise owner, your comfort zone becomes disrupted. That's what happened to Jane. She told me she was surprised at how hard it was to manage the people and how much time she spent working on her business. 
 
When Jane went from consulting to ownership, she experienced "where the rubber meets the road" if you will. Her comfort zone was disrupted, and the very things she had taught for 25 years  she could't apply to herself. Now, try to picture what your day will look like in the franchise that you are considering. Call existing franchisees, as they are your best source and can give you an accurate assessment. And don't forget to ask yourself, "can I see myself in this business?"

Top 5 Plus Reasons to Own a Franchise!

Posted by Janon Otto on Wed, Jun 13, 2018 @ 13:06 PM

5reasons.jpg"YOU ARE DOING WHAT!? That's the question we heard most when we told our friends and families that we were franchising a Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids," says Janon Otto CEO of Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids Franchising - as well as a multi-unit franchisee for Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids. "They would also ask us what franchising is, and if we had gone crazy! Looking back, it's obvious that although there are franchises all over the place, most people have no idea what a franchise is. That's why the Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids franchising toolkit (available below) is so important. It really helps explain what franchising is, as well as the advantages of owning your own franchise business."

Ultimately though, it's important to understand that a franchise is a business model. When a business owner decides to expand their business, they have options.  One of those options is to franchise.  Franchising allows others to own their own company yet use the name, logo, and systems of the franchise business owner (the franchisor). And although a franchisee is responsible for the success or failure of their franchise location, there are some significant advantages to franchise ownership. This includes the following...

1. The franchisee doesn't not have to come up with their own unique business idea!
2. The franchisee can use the systems that have already been developed and used successfully by others, which dramatically shortens the learning curve!
3. The franchisee gets training and support with a business partner who knows and cares about the success of their new business.
4. If the franchise system is progressive, the franchisee doesn't have to worry about ongoing costs or keeping up with trends needed to develop the concept further, as the franchisor is responsible for this. Meanwhile, as the system grows, the name brand recognition grows - thus growing the business of the franchisee!
5. Tools to use for advertising and graphic design / marketing is usually provided as well.

And there is a BIG bonus to being in touch with business owners who are all trying to do the same think you are is a wonderful thing - many heads are much better than one!

Finding Franchise Success in the Next Recession

Posted by Jim Otto on Fri, May 11, 2018 @ 13:05 PM

SuccessI recently attended a webinar with one of the largest franchising financing lenders in the United States. I would like to explain all the graphs that they showed us but the bottom line was this: all the signs point to the next recession hitting sometime in the next 24 months. 
  • Credit Card debt and margin buying of stocks are back to record levels.
  • The small business optimism indicator  is at record levels (this is a contrarian indicator). 
  • Retail rents are at extreme levels causing over building, even though demand is decreasing  for retail space! 
 
But what I was most interested in was a chart of the top 15 franchises according to the SBA. I can't tell you those names, but what I can tell you is some commonalities they had. 
  • Four of the top 15 were child related.
  • Most all were recession resistant. 

At Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids we feel like we combine both of these traits. As most parents look at a haircut as a necessity and not an option, and a haircut will never be replaced on the internet! Parents will always spend money on their children. They will cut out a lot of luxuries and services for themselves, but never a service that makes their children look better and feel better about themselves!

In Business or Franchising - Three is the Magic Number!

Posted by Jim Otto on Fri, May 11, 2018 @ 13:05 PM

magicnumberI often get contacted by people who want to buy a franchise or business to be their own boss, take control of their destiny and live the American dream! Well, that's all well and good. But I'd like to take a moment and add a small bit of wisdom from one who has been there and has interacted with lots of people who who have also been there. 
 
It takes time. Three years to be precise. 
 
While some can do it a little faster and some might do it a little slower - on average it's going to take you about three years. If you were to pin me down, or get upset with me, or even tell me I'm crazy, I wouldn't mind. As a matter of fact, I really can't explain it other than to to tell you that after countless observations, research, and doing it myself, three years is about what it takes to create a business that gains enough traction for the owner to rightfully claim their business is on it's way to being successful. 
 
So the bad news here is this: If you're going to quit your job, make sure that you have lots - and need I say it again - LOTS of working capital. Because you may have a long runway. The other option is to keep your job and run your business on the side. This option will test your business skill, your ability to manage and find the right people, and trust them.
 
The good news here is: owning your own franchise or business can allow you to be your own boss, allow you to control your own destiny and allow you to live the American dream.
 
But like I said, it's going to take you about three years to get there.

There has never been a better time, ever!

Posted by Jim Otto on Tue, Jan 16, 2018 @ 12:01 PM

Growing.jpgThere has possibly never been a better time to start a franchise business, ever. Not only is the franchising model proven, but with a pro-business administration in Washington, the regulatory, and tax environment, along with consumer spending power has never been better! Please don't take my comments as a political endorsement of any politician or political party. I simply think that the facts stand on their own.

For example:

  • 4.1% unemployment rate is at historic lows 
  • Consumer sentiment on the economy is high and improving
  • The stock market is at record highs
 
This begs the question, will the good times continue? And if so, what franchises should I be looking at? A  good place to start is by asking yourself what type of business you see yourself operating. You'll also need to give an honest personal assessment in regards to the type of hours you'd like to operate, what you enjoy doing and what you're truly passionate about. Then you will want to look at franchises with strong brand recognition, a good track record of performance and a good reputation between past and present franchisees.  
 
Do your homework, make sure your significant other is on board, and get your financing in place. Then go for it! Because the way I see it, there's never been a better time to start a franchise, ever!
