CREATE THE SUPPORT SYSTEMS FRANCHISEES EXPECT.
Transitioning from manager to franchisor.
Many owners struggle to transition from owning a business to becoming a franchisor. This change is essential to create a successful franchise system. The franchisor needs to make a change from running a business to supporting the franchisees by outlining realistic expectations and becoming a true partner in the franchisees success.
If leaders fail to lead, or do not know how to run a franchise, everyone in the system is at risk. We teach you how to maintain the brand you’ve worked so hard to create.
If you think it’s expensive to train people and have them leave, imagine how much it costs to not train them and have them stay.
FRANCHISE SYSTEMS ARE ONLY AS SMART AS
Becoming a franchisor requires different skills than managing corporate employees. As a franchisor, franchisees are the custodians of the brand. It is by being able to identify and separate roles that franchise systems are successful.
Franchisees need to be educated at each step during their life-cycle. It begins from the moment they make first contact through opening and until the day they exit the system. This includes a new franchisee education program with structured curriculum and offering on-going training courses. Franchise systems are only as smart at their franchisees, and the intelligent ones create gold-standard education programs.
JumpStart Franchise services offers leadership workshops that focus on the following:
- Transitioning from business owner to franchisor
- Allocating proper resources
- Setting defined expectations of franchisor and franchisee
- Planning for long-term franchise success
Creating a sustainable franchise business model requires a strong commitment and investment in franchisee education.
These leadership workshops are no joke. I was able to identify where myself and my staff fall short, and make plans for a more cohesive working environment.
