Congratulations on your decision to take your future into your own hands and become a franchisee. It’s a low risk and high reward way to become your own boss, and with a proven turnkey franchise like the one offered by Signarama, success is inevitable.
Of course, we understand that you have your doubts about entering the business – especially if you don’t have experience in the sign industry. Thankfully there are logical and proven ways that you can work through these doubts and get all the reassurance you need that a Signarama franchise is the path to your individual empire.
So if you’re still on the fence, here’s a franchise criteria checklist of questions to ask yourself before making a commitment:
1. Does the franchise have a good reputation?
A quick check will show you that Signarama is well viewed by its peers both in Australia and internationally (as well as publications such as Entrepreneur Magazine and Franchise Times). Along with our great business reputation, we all know that a franchise’s internal reputation is just as important, and thankfully you can easily get access and reach out to other Signarama franchisees to ask any questions you might have about how we operate. In fact, some of them might even be involved in your training!
2. Does the franchise take into account your skills gap?
If a franchise allows you to join it without having the necessary experience in the field, they need to offer some kind of training and induction through which you can learn about the relevant industry from scratch. This is a given at Signarama, where you benefit from weeks of training at Signarama headquarters as well as on the ground at your chosen location.
3. Does the franchise offer ongoing support?
When you work in an industry where you have no formal training or experience, staying on top of recent trends and developments is a challenge. At Signarama, continuous training opportunities and an open line to business mentors means that you will always have someone knowledgeable to answer your questions about what you’re doing right, what you’re doing wrong and what you can do better.
Of course, there are dozens of other things you could add to this checklist before you join a franchise, but we’ve found that the three above questions are the most indicative of future success –and we can confidently answer them all positively. For more information, contact Signarama today.
