Opening a franchise: There is no absence of lists on the internet that tell you the do’s and don’ts of how to create a successful franchise. But the one thing they never state is that after all the good things are done and the bad things are avoided, it still takes you to make sure that the franchise is successful.
As with any job, without your hard work and the right attitude to teach your employees how to provide the best services possible to the client, then the franchise folds up. Even with the most successful franchise model, it is the boss and staff that must serve those clients once social media, word-of-mouth, or branding has brought them through the doors.
There will always be a risk of investment, but if an already established franchise is doing well then as an entrepreneur you want to make sure to join up with that company that has earned their sold reputation. To be financially successful, however, your franchise attitude has to be honed. It is a skill that you must learn; you must be able to offer ‘5-star’ services and be able to create a relaxed environment for the client. You must be honest, reliable, and you must – to put it simply – be far better than any of your competition. Whether it be down the road or in another state, your attitude will be the key factor when people choose which company they go to for their needs.
There are lists out there that state the best industries to enter for franchising, BUT if you are not well-suited to that particular industry then your attitude will not be right. No one interested in the law should become a franchisee of a mobile phone company. Not because they wouldn’t understand the ins-and-outs of that industry, but because if a person is bored with their career they will not put time and attention into the franchise. A person who loves their job is the exact opposite. If you feel that massage services for better overall health is the right way to serve the community, then you head into the massage industry.
With the love of the industry comes the joy and excitement that will make you work hard to bring your franchise dream into fruition.
BAM Brands has made sure that all of their franchises are successful by making sure that their franchisees love the industry. With popular names, such as, MassageLuXe, FaceLuXe, The TAN Company, Spray La Vie and Xist Fitness - all of BAM Brands’ companies are growing by leaps and bounds. They work with the right franchisee with the correct personality and attitude; and they make sure that the franchisee is innovative, smart and interesting, so that clients will want to come back to their franchise again and again.
Being a success is on the top of everyone’s ‘to do’ list in life. And this goal can only be achieved by teaming up with people who understand that you are the best franchisee for the job.
With every BAM Brands franchise, they also make sure all franchisees understand the disappearing concept (which is frightening), of the customer being always right. The customer is there to be served; they arrive at your franchise in order to get the best services. If that is not received, they walk out, never to return again.
Customer service is an intrical part of the franchise, and the franchisee must have that attitude that is one of leadership with great listening skills. They need to be able to listen to both client and employee to ensure that the franchise environment is the best for one and all.
