One of the most important exercises to go through in the startup of any business is the creation of a business plan, and this is just as true with franchised businesses as with any other. The discipline of preparing the business plan forces you to anticipate and think through a number of questions about the challenges you ll face and the expectations you have for your new business. The creation of your business plan is also essential if you need financing from any third-party source, since this is probably the first document any such financing source will ask you for.
In a franchise business, you ll probably find that the preparation of the business plan is substantially easier than for any other type of independent business startup. The franchisor typically has a great deal of verbiage readily available to include in the narrative portions of the business plan, and also includes much of the financial information you ll need in the Uniform Franchise Offering Circular (UFOC) disclosure document.

All too often, inadequate planning and development of a franchise business structure before offering franchises is reason why newcomers to franchising will fail.
Second, this approach assumes that even if a similar strategy is implemented, that the resources of both organizations are similar. Every organization comes to franchising from a different starting point – with different strengths and weaknesses. Competing with an established franchisor by going head-to-head in an area of their strengths can be a huge mistake.

They expected that their children, Helen and Philip, would chart their own courses in life. But as the kids grew up and began working in the store after school and in the summertime, it dawned on the Dodds that Fastsigns might be a viable career path for the whole family.
When we started, having a family business was not an objective, says Glenn, who eventually opened a second Fastsigns franchise. We wanted to find something we enjoyed doing, and Fastsigns was a really nice fit. I won t say I was surprised when my children showed interest in the business. It just sort of evolved that way.
