You’re excited about finally owning your own franchise. So excited, in fact that you are bursting with ideas and inspiration! The problem is, those ideas sometimes clash with what your franchisor has in mind. Here’s why listening to them is probably a good thing.
Years of experience
If you’ve never owned a franchise, or never owned the particular one you’re considering, heed the voice of experience from your franchisor. They’re likely to be much more knowledgeable about its ins and outs than you are at this point. They may have already considered and tried many of your ideas, only to find out they’re untenable for a reason.
The right kind of franchisor
If you keep finding yourself butting heads with your franchisor, it may be you’re just in the wrong franchise. There are so many different types out there – you may be better off with one that’s already being run the way you want. Consider this carefully before you actually purchase a franchise license.
In the end, fighting your franchisor will not only drain you of time and energy, but it won’t be profitable. The odds are good your franchisor knows what they’re doing – so trust them to pave the way for your success!
