No one said that running a business was easy. In fact, it’s the opposite. So, why do it? As an independent business owner, you are truly the king of your castle. But what is a kingdom if you don’t have the tools to make your business successful? Chances are, you’ll find yourself stuck in the castle without a drawbridge.

That’s why many contractors are exploring their options. The best of both worlds, franchising, allows you independence as a business owner while providing you with the necessary resources for success. Franchising can offer vital assistance with marketing, training, and media relations. It can also offer you help with financial planning and provide access to new technology. While there are many misconceptions about franchising for the skilled trades, it never hurts to take a look at options.

Here are a few tried, true, and new ideas on the benefits of franchising. Excerpts are from an article by Dave Borowski, a nationally recognized trainer, and consultant. “How Franchising Can Work for You” was first published in Reeves Journal, December 2018.
