Frequently Asked Questions
Buying a Franchise
What is a franchise business?
A franchise (or franchising) is a method of distributing products or services involving a franchisor, who establishes the brand’s trademark or trade name and a business system, and a franchisee, who pays a royalty and often an initial fee for the right to do business under the franchisor’s name and system.
What is a franchise fee?
In exchange for a franchise, the franchisee usually pays the franchisor an initial start-up fee and annual royalty fees or licensing fees in order to use the franchisor’s proprietary business knowledge, intellectual property, processes, and branding, allowing the franchisee to sell a product or service with the franchisor’s business name.
How do I choose the right franchise?
Deciding which franchise is right for you is a huge decision. The right business should not only interest you, but the initial investment amount must fit into your budget and it should enable you to live the lifestyle you desire. The Franchise Agency is here to help guide you through the decision making process.
How quickly can I open a franchise?
It depends on the type of franchise you buy. A home based franchise is faster to open than a bricks and mortar business.
Once you purchase a franchise, you can expect to open anywhere from 2-6 months. Most of the work is already done for you in terms of designing a store, sourcing equipment, and creating marketing materials.
The Franchise Agency team can provide you with a more accurate timeline once you have decided which franchise you want to purchase.

Franchising Your Business
How do I franchise a business?
If you’re interested in turning your existing business into a franchise, first you must consider if your business is suitable for franchise. Does your business have a track record of success? Do you have repeatable systems that franchisees can put into place? Do you have the means to offer support, training, and help with marketing? From there, it’s a matter of learning the legal requirements and establishing your franchise model. Bailey Brown-The Franchise Agency is here to help guide you through the process and make things as smooth and easy as possible.
How do I know if my business is franchisable?
Franchisable businesses have a unique, but reproducible product or service. Customers will expect the same level of quality at every franchise location. Therefore, you must be able to replicate your product or service with the same standards and level of quality at each franchise location.
Businesses that make good franchise opportunities also have comprehensive infrastructure systems, as well as launch and growth strategies. Franchisors will need to provide training and support for individual franchise owners.
