(StatePoint) If youâ€™ve ever considered going into business for yourself, you may have wondered whether opening a franchise is right for you. Learning more about how franchise systems work can help you make an informed decision.
Experts say that being a franchisee means getting to enjoy the freedom and flexibility of making your own business decisions but with the support of an established brand. Essentially, youâ€™re in business for yourself, not by yourself.
And when it comes to becoming a franchise owner with an industry-leading brand, you can expect to be supported in a number of ways that help to guarantee your success. The UPS Store is a good example of a franchise system offering a simple process for getting started and guaranteed support along the way. After completing a four-step application process, the brand offers franchisees such benefits as financing options, training, ongoing advertising, opportunities to expand your footprint and corporate retail solutions to drive business to your location.
