Here Are The 3 Things That are Gonna Happen When You Buy a Franchise

Posted by Briana Hall on Fri, Jan 3, 2020 @ 11:01 AM

There are 3 Phases that will bring your franchise to the moon, around it, and back home! We are here to let you know what those 3 phases are, what to expect, and how to navigate these waters as new owner.

What-happens-when-you-buy-a-franchise

When you open your franchise there are three things that are going to happen. I have done it myself, and have talked to a lot of others who have opened franchises. I can't tell exactly how long each one of these three things is going to take, only that they are going to happen. They are going to happen a little differently depending on your franchisors training and the concept that you bought into. But they are going to happen. 

Phase One: People - You’re going to spend a lot of time looking for the right people. In today's tight labor market finding the right people is a big challenge. It can take six to nine months to get a set staff, and sometimes longer. The people that you think are going to stay don't, and the ones you may not see potential at first may be the ones who rise to the top. As they say, can't "pull the wagon" without the right team. And your team delivers your product. 

- Phase Two: Learning - The second month should be focused on a better understanding of the systems and processes. Yes, I know what you’re thinking; the franchisor taught me all the systems during training! The best analogy I can give you is the Astronauts that went up in Apollo 13 trained for two years for their mission. They had prepared for every type of scenario except for the type of explosion that happened and how to replace the oxygen filter to get back to earth. But together with mission control (your franchisor) they figured it out and got home safely. In business we call that "mission accomplished"

- Phase Three: Implementation - After the first 60 to 90 days you will have the real world knowledge of running your franchise. You will begin to find out why the franchisor does things the way they do and why they taught you to do it that way during training.  Over time you will start to see your momentum building and the future you are building start to come into focus. 

Building a successful business takes time and a franchise is no exception to that. However your ramp up time should be a lot faster with a franchise, and having "Mission Control" to guide you is a big reason why franchising has become such a successful avenue to business ownership!

This is What You Need to Succeed as a Franchise Owner

Posted by Briana Hall on Fri, Dec 27, 2019 @ 10:12 AM

What makes you the perfect franchise owner? Is it your business degree? Previous experience owning a business? Your people skills? All are great qualities, but being a SUCCESSFUL franchise owner takes something a little different that just might surprise you!

What-it-takes-to-be-a-successful-franchise-owner

 I was recently looking through a research report about what types of people make the best franchisees. The answer may surprise you, although intelligence, business skill, and former experience as a business owner are highly valuable characteristics. However, the fact that you have an MBA did not get you to the top. Neither did the fact that you may have been a CEO of a fortune 500 company. Instead, the report listed Sales Executives as the top candidates to become successful franchisees. 

As I began to examine their reasoning, I saw that Sales Executives have the following traits:

  • In a way Sales Executives are already small business owners. They believe in their product and have to go out everyday and sell it. In addition they understand that they are paid to produce, unlike people who have been on a salary there whole life. 
  • Sales Executives don't cower when times get tough. To anyone who has lived on commission you know the sales cycle can be brutal. However, you conquer these cycles by working harder when needed - always believing that things will get better. 
  • Most of all, Sales Executives relish the thought of unlimited earnings potential. It's what motivates them to get out of bed everyday. 

What the article failed to mention was one other thing that is consistent with all great franchise owners. Great franchisees understand that they are not in the product or service business; they are in the Relationship business. Building a relationship with your customers where they understand the purpose of your business, and building relationships with your employees so that they can deliver that good or service to those customers, is the key to great franchisee success!

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.

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.

yarncraftSuper Easy and Super Cool Kids Crafts! It won't be long, and the kids will be heading off to school - but with our Crafts for Kids section on Pinterest, you can spend a little quality time making some cool stuff with them before they do! For example, make a paper-plate alien spaceship (with clear alien dome), a paper bag mouse puppet, a funny pop-up weasel, a school bus made out of felt, a pool-noodle racing game, an interactive yarn jellyfish (as seen at left) and a really awesome lighthouse made out of plastic cups! Have a great rest of your summer!

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!
 
Shear Madness Franchising franchises Shear Madness Haircuts for Kids salons. We have worked with franchise stores in providing franchisee support (in order to encourage continual growth and business success), and have sometimes seen the unexpected happen! When it does, we help by identifying and helping with challenges that might arise for franchisees. Additionally, we work to present options that can help prevent these events as well. As many franchise owners may not have opened a business before, having someone who can advise them is a significant advantage of franchise ownership!
