XYM FRANCHISING MANAGEMENT

Franchising my business

Franchising is one of the growth strategies that has been most widely used in the last few years by companies from various industries that seek to expand their operational areas and move into niche markets, both internally and abroad.

The main benefits franchising can offer your business are:

Network Growth

Franchisor investment focuses mainly on setting up a framework, as well as systems that support the network, which will expand proportionally to the number of units.

The franchisees invest in setting up their own units.

Geographic Expansion

The franchising system allows products, services, and especially a brand, to expand more rapidly over a geographical area, compared to what could be achieved through a subsidiaries system.

Brand Reinforcement

As the business grows and covers a wider geographical area, more effort is put into promoting the brand – the usage of media resources becomes more intense, while being supported by a stronger marketing policy, thus reinforcing the brand on a local, regional, and national level.

Franchisee Motivation

As a general rule, someone who decides to become a franchisee is highly motivated in terms of maximizing results, especially when compared to operation managers who do not invest their own capital. This aspect motivates franchisees on a different level. They measure success based on their return on investment and work continually to improve it, contributing to the success of the franchise as a whole.

Economies of Scale

Working as part of a network allows the franchisor to negotiate better deals with their suppliers, and these benefits can then be passed on and shared with their network of franchisees.

Strategic Planning

Franchising allows the franchisor to monitor the franchised operation more closely, allowing the planning of future innovations, while the franchisees administer their day to day business.
