FranFaire Newsletter – December 2011

Greetings from FranFaire Franchise Consulting!    

Franchisee Validation Spreadsheet

One of the questions we are most frequently asked when people are looking to invest in their own business is: “when am I going to start making money?  A return on my investment?”

It is extremely important to find out your break-even point because that helps you determine whether a particular business or franchise opportunity is a viable option for you.  The advantage of franchising is that you have franchisees to question and gather this information from.  They have the real-life experience and information to give you an assessment of when you will start making your money.  However, how comfortable are you asking a stranger how much money they make?  For most of us it’s difficult, and that is why we are happy to be able to provide you with our Franchisee Financial Validation Spreadsheet.

Our validation sheet is a pro forma that allows you to ask questions that are not too invasive, questions that both you and the franchisee are comfortable with, and still get the answers and numbers you need.  You will get information that will assist you in determining your break-even point and profitability.  We are here to help you understand and evaluate all of your options.  This is another tool that we offer you at no charge.

If you would like to learn more about our Financial Validation Spreadsheet, contact us for more information.

Franchising Benefits:

 Passive Franchises

Looking to replace or supplement your income with business ownership?  Interested but you don’t want to increase your current work responsibilities?

At FranFaire, we have more than one hundred passive concepts in our portfolio.  These are business and franchise concepts that do not require the owner/investor to work actively in the day-to-day operations of the business.  This frees up your time while still allowing you to earn income from your business.

Passive concepts span all industries, including Home Improvement, Professional Services, Restaurants, Senior and Special Needs Care, Financial Services, Retail, Pet Care, Beauty and more.

Want to learn how you can earn income passively through a concept in one of these industries?  Contact us today.
