The Advantages of a Franchise Business Over Going It Alone Are Plenty!

Big O Tire Franchise Advantages

The American economy is driven by small businesses, and every year, thousands of people become owners of them(1). It’s a big step, and we applaud that entrepreneurial spirit, especially as many of those new owners will start their businesses from scratch, taking on all the work and creating everything themselves, often for the first time. But there is a better way! The advantages of a franchise business are numerous, with one of the most important being the ongoing corporate support you can expect from a franchisor. Here, we’ll look at a few key differences between independent business ownership and owning an independent business that is also a franchisee with a major franchise brand.

Less Guesswork

One of the biggest advantages of a franchise is the time-tested business model you’ll have access to that should take much of the trial and error out of running your business. All franchise brands have developed business models that are meant to help franchisees navigate their industries more efficiently and successfully. But it’s important to remember that not all models are created equal. The exceptional ones factor in just about everything you’ll need to know to run the day-to-day operations of your business. It’ll take the guesswork out of things and can help to keep you on course toward success. When you start an automotive repair business from scratch, for instance, you simply won’t have access to this kind of important and useful resource.

Franchisee Preparation and Guidance

Becoming a franchise comes with lots of benefits, and one of the most important is comprehensive training and support. You should be able to count on it to prepare you for the demands of whatever industry you’ve chosen to do business in as you grow your franchise and offer goods and/or services. The better brands make sure you have access to franchise experts to make sure you feel fully prepared. They’ll train you in everything you need to know to operate your franchise smoothly and meet the needs of your community successfully, keeping you on top of best practices and industry trends and advances.

A Trusted Franchising Brand

The Big O Tires brand has been a name people have trusted for generations, and we’ve worked hard to establish ourselves as the go-to source for expert automotive services. We’re always working on getting our name out there with regional marketing campaigns that will benefit you directly. Additionally, because our name is such an established one in many parts of the country, your local marketing dollar will go further — it’ll be quicker and easier to reach your best customers. That means you’ll need less time to establish yourself in your market and will have more time to pay attention to what matters — customer service and growth!

A Suite of Services

Of course, we can’t talk about the benefits of a franchise with Big O without mentioning the suite of services you’ll be able to offer your community, quickly making you its one-stop shop for exceptional automotive care.  From routine maintenance to tire sales, fluid changes, brake work, and more, your Big O franchise can quickly be recognized as a trusted resource for all things automotive. Growing revenue streams like these take time, energy, and resources.   Big O can get you immediate access to those resources, and our ongoing support will help you to be fully prepared to leverage them for the life of your business.
