You have to put a number of things in place before you open your doors to franchising.

QUESTION 1: What is your franchise business model? How would you know if the franchisee would make money or not?


QUESTION 2: What is your value proposition to the market?

QUESTION 3: What are your reasons for franchising the business?

QUESTION 4: What are your short- and long-term goals?

QUESTION 5: Who will be involved in franchising?

QUESTION 7: What are the phases of the application process and the rationalization of each phase?

QUESTION 8: How will you evaluate franchise applicants?

QUESTION 9: What franchise organization will you set up?
