Every day, thousands of individuals go into business for themselves. Many of them start from scratch, taking on all the responsibilities themselves, without the benefit of a time-tested business model or the guidance of experts. Others, however, choose to open a franchise business because they know they can count on the support of a franchisor. Anyone who owns a Golden Chick franchise knows this to be true — we’re there for our franchisees every step of the way! But not everyone is cut out to be a quick service restaurant (QSR) franchise owner. Here, we’ll look at three factors that just might mean you’d be a great QSR franchisee candidate.
You Have the Drive
While it’s true that partnering with us to own a Golden Chick franchise might make starting and operating your small business easier than it would if you started from scratch, it still requires hard work. As any business owner can tell you, you’ve got to have the drive, determination, and vision yourself in order to succeed. If you’re motivated to put in the time and effort to see your QSR franchise thrive, and you understand that establishing yourself in your community will likely take a bit of time (i.e. patience), you’ve got some of what it takes to own a Golden Chick franchise.
You Have the Resources
Being a business owner certainly has its advantages. Your efforts go toward your own bottom line and you can create your own work schedule, among other benefits. But for a business to succeed it requires resources not just in the way of time and effort, but also money. Successful business owners have the capital necessary to weather the ups and downs of doing business, and owning a QSR franchise is no different. Franchise candidates who are financially stable have more freedom to concentrate on growth and sustainability, and worry less about the inevitable bumps in the road.
You Welcome Outside Help
It’s a great feeling to be your own boss and to be able to count on yourself to make important decisions and work hard toward your own goals. There’s a lot be said for that kind of independence and it’s why many people go into business for themselves. But being part of the Golden Chick franchise brand means you’ll also be able to count on our help to answer questions, address concerns, and keep you up-to-speed on industry trends. Our business model acts like a roadmap, taking a lot of the guesswork out of running your restaurant, and when you own a Golden Chick franchise we’ll expect you to follow it, and the best practices it outlines. Being able to work independently but with the guidance of industry experts like us makes you a good candidate for one of our franchises.
