Opening a franchise can be an exciting way to build your own business while enjoying the benefits of being part of a larger support network. Franchisees enjoy the freedom of running their own business along with the strong foundation that comes with being part of a larger group. When deciding whether to start your own franchise, there are a few questions you should ask yourself:
#1: Am I a people person?
Franchisees need to work well with others. Whether working alongside other franchisees and brand representatives, leading their own team, or helping customers, there are many occasions when a franchisee will rely on their interpersonal skills. A positive interaction can go a long way towards building your business, while a negative interaction can be destructive. If you’re excited about all of the opportunities a franchisee has to interact with others, franchising might be for you!
#2: Am I passionate about my business?
Whatever business you are considering franchising with, you should be working in an area that you are excited about. They say that if you love what you do, you will never work a day in your life. With so many franchises to choose from, you are bound to find a line of work that suits your interests and talents.

#3: Do I have the resources and support that I need?
Opening a new business is a big commitment, and you will need to put significant time and capital into your investment. Can you access the resources you will need to start your business? Many franchise companies will offer their franchisees support and resources from the get-go.
At Signarama, we are proud of our training and support program that helps our franchisees to build their business before and after opening. Some of the support we offer includes a highly-effective mentor program, a regional support staff team, and strategic alliances with vendors and suppliers.
