DO I NEED SPECIFIC INDUSTRY EXPERIENCE TO SUCCESSFULLY OWN A FRANCHISE?
No. In fact most franchisees have had no experience in the industry that they go into.
Franchisors want their business operators to focus on running the business and not performing the labor their concepts require. Franchisees are managers, rather than workers.
Franchisors want franchisees who can be effective in areas such as motivating employees, generating sales, and running the day-to-day operations as effectively as possible.
