How to Be a Successful Franchisor

If you have a great business and are thinking about franchising it — you should know what it takes to be a good franchisor. The following list details some factors that typically translate into successful franchisors. In addition when you are buying a franchise it is important to ensure it is strong, and will remain strong. This list can also help identify great franchisors to work with.

There are many factors that contribute to a successful franchise. Chief among these is having the right people in charge of the franchise. Over the years, I've noticed several other characteristics shared by successful franchisors.

Maintaining System-Wide Uniformity

Maintenance of high and uniform standards throughout the franchise network is of signifcant value to the franchisor and each of the franchisees. It is important to the value of the system, that a customer receives high quality and consistent experience in dealing with each franchise location. Whether or not you are a fan of McDonald's, you can't deny the remarkably consistent experience in visiting a McDonald's in Chicago, Atlanta, or Tokyo. A franchisor must implement policies and procedures that help maintain standards by rewarding compliance and enforcing system standards by means of inspections and audits where positive motivation has not proven effective.
