Just like opening any new business, the path to opening an international sign franchise is dotted with hurdles you’ll need to jump along the way. At Signarama, we try to make the experience of opening a new franchise as easy as possible for our franchisees. Here’s a quick look at a few common obstacles some of our franchisees encounter on their road to franchising, as well as solutions they’ve found helpful.
#1. Securing Financing
Franchising with Signarama requires an initial investment as well as as required net worth. Our franchisees need to be able to manage the initial investment and demonstrate that they have a certain amount of liquid capital. We understand that finances can be complicated, and many of our franchisees turn to financing to help them meet these requirements. Two common solutions include securing a small business loan and leveraging equity in homes. Ask us about our connections to third-party lenders that can help our franchisees to finance their locations!
