In a sluggish economy, there is light shining at the end of one tunnel – that’s the success of franchising which, despite the odds, has held its own year-on-year in every respect – from showing long-term sustainability to showing a high level of optimism for the future.
But the proof of the viability and appeal of franchising lies in what the 40 000 franchisees who own their own businesses think of their choice of franchising as the way to being their own boss. Research shows that franchisees:-
- Enjoy a business success rate of 90%
- Are 80% happy with their franchisors
- 73% happy with their suppliers
- 72% happy with their landlords, and above all….
- 72% are optimistic about the future of their businesses.
What better endorsement can one have to take that step to being your own boss then the success of franchisees that make up the backbone of the sector. Add to that the universal fact that franchise businesses have a high success rate of 90% and only a 10% failure rate compared to independent businesses where the failure rate is as high as 90%.
The Franchise Association of South Africa, which represents franchising in South Africa has embarked on a national road show to provide education to anyone who is interested in being their own boss as well as provide information on funding and how to decide which franchise is the right one to choose.
