Franchising 101

A franchise is a type of business in which a franchise owner (you) licenses the right to operate using the franchisor (American Freight)’s products, systems and brand trademark. In this case, entrepreneurs partner with American Freight to operate the business under the company’s name.

Franchise ownership is entrepreneurship, but with tremendous support. As a franchise owner, you maintain the freedom to run your own business along with the help and support of a larger, well-established company. Instead of starting from scratch with an unknown business model, franchise ownership provides you with systems that have been cultivated and tested for decades. Since it’s part of the franchisor’s job to ensure you’re fully trained in the company’s processes, you can enter the world of franchising without previous background in your desired industry.

Time and again, franchise ownership proves to be an advantageous option for entrepreneurs. Not only do business owners benefit from the support of an experienced team of industry professionals, but they can also leverage discounts from bulk buying power, tap into an existing customer base and scale the business more quickly than they’d be able to on their own.
