Follow the golden rules for funding your franchise

Planning to open a franchise of your own, but think you’re short of funds? Don’t worry - just follow these simple tips which can help you get good results from your franchise investment.

1) Thorough research It is always essential to thoroughly research a franchise that you have chosen to be a part of. The trading performance of any business is directly linked with the commitment that you bring to the business.

2) British Franchise Association If possible, attend the British Franchise Association’s seminar and purchase their franchise guide which can help you to research whether your chosen franchise is the right option for you or not.

3) Take your time Don’t rush to make a commitment until you are completely prepared for it. If a franchisor tries to convince you by saying that you may miss a golden opportunity unless you sign today then just walk away. You should always have a discussion with your family as to what would happen if things do not go as planned.

5) Prepare your business plan Before you approach any of the finance providers you are required to have a properly justified business plan. The proper way of presenting your plan is very important as it creates a positive impact.
