Did you know there are over 750,000 franchise businesses in the United States? People open franchises because the model comes with many benefits not available when starting a business from scratch — and opening a restoration franchise with PuroClean is no different! But while millions of people shop at franchises, eat at franchises, and live near them, there are some myths about doing business as a franchisee that might discourage someone from taking advantage of a PuroClean opportunity to open a restoration franchise. Let’s take a look at three of those myths here — and bust them!
Many potential franchisees believe that to be successful, they need a background in the industry they’d like to do business in. But because of our comprehensive pre-opening training, ongoing support, and time-tested business model, prior experience is not necessary! We know starting out and staying on solid footing is key to your success, and we don’t leave that up to chance. Our brand has been a recognized and respected one for 20 years, and that’s due in large part to the hard work of our franchise owners and the support we show them for the life of their business.
Starting any business carries with it a certain amount of risk. But franchises are statistically less risky endeavors because of all the effort the franchisor has invested in them. Kinks have been worked out, best practices have been put in place, and the business model acts as a sort of roadmap for franchise owners to follow, taking a lot of the guesswork out of day-to-day operations. Of course, no brand can guarantee an owner’s ultimate success. But opening a PuroClean restoration franchise means you’ll be partnered with a franchisor who has decades of experience and a deep knowledge of the restoration industry. Having access to our expertise and resources takes a lot of the work and worry out of starting your franchise, freeing you up to focus on customer service and growth!
A common myth about the franchisor/franchisee relationship is that you won’t be allowed to run things on your own. Actually, nothing could be further from the truth! While all franchise brands do have specific guidelines and procedures that franchise owners must follow (it’s what takes so much of the guesswork out of running your business), the fact is, when it comes to opening a restoration franchise with PuroClean, our business model allows for a lot of individuality. Among other things, you’ll decide who to hire, how you want to structure your time, and how you can engage your local community to become a valued business partner thru proven programs that build goodwill and profitable sales.
Best of all, our franchise partners often find once they’ve established their franchises, they’re able to strike a better work/life balance, one that allows them more time with family and friends. The bottom line is that relying on our franchise owners to make important decisions on their own and run their businesses without interference contributes to our brand’s overall success.
