Starting a New Business

Should you start your own business “from-scratch” or invest in a franchise of an already successful business model?

Research originally conducted on behalf of the International Franchise Association (IFA), reports the estimated number of franchised physical locations exceeds four hundred seventy-five thousand (475,00), representing some seventy-five (75) different industries.  The popularity of the franchise business model has to do with its proven track record of success and ease in becoming a business owner.  The success rate for franchise-owned businesses is significantly higher than for independent businesses.


Many people see franchising as a simple, less complicated way to go into business for the first time.  Selecting a franchise can be a smart move, particularly if you haven’t previously owned a business or been self-employed.  Franchising secures an established brand, providing a proven business model and marketing system.  Advantages of a franchise include:


  • Franchises offer the independence of small business ownership supported by the benefits of a larger, experienced business network.
  • In most instances, you don’t need business experience to run a franchise.
  • Franchisors usually provide the training you need to operate their business model.


Franchises often have an established reputation and image, proven management and business practices, access to advertising materials, and on-going day-to-day operational support.


The Need

A survey done by the Mayo Clinic found that nearly three-quarters of parents said they feared their children might be abducted.  This fear is well-founded, as every 40 seconds in the United States, a child becomes missing or is abducted.
