Managing Franchisees

Managing Franchisees

Is managing a large franchise system equivalent to being as difficult as nailing jelly to a tree?

As a franchisor, a business owner becomes a leader, coach, counselor and family member all rolled into one.  It is an extremely complex and dynamic role for a business person to manage the responsibilities that come along with being a franchisor. We have a unique skill set and a solid foundation as a franchise business consultant who is needed for your franchising to be successful.  We are sales oriented, relationship driven, flexible, patient, a mentor and extremely good at thinking outside of the box and manage to not let things fall outside of the box.

What makes franchising so unique in the kingdom of business transactions and managing franchisees?

Franchisees are people who fall somewhere between entrepreneurs and employees of a specific organization.  They have the drive, independence and commitment to succeed on their own, but you want them to follow a specific game plan in the way that they operate their business.  This independent vs. structured partner makes the management and interaction with franchisees unique and complex. We know how to harness the positive side of a franchisee’s entrepreneurial energy without letting anyone forget who the sheriff is (you) and keeping the franchise in line.

Franchising is a business procedure that relies on volume.  For the franchise network to work successfully and with complete efficiency, it requires volume.  With a large number of units, there are certain to be many different personalities, people and backgrounds amongst the franchise partners in any given franchise system. We can manage the diverse personalities and keep as many people happy at one time as we tend to do the best in this business. Entrepreneurs who recognize that this may not have a skill set for it, it’s better off if you hire a franchise manager like Sparkleminds, who has this skill set needed to take your franchise system to the next level of growth and provide franchise management solutions.
