Reasons why franchising
is a great option
It's quicker - the brand and
collateral are already established
It's safer - you're joining an operation
with a proven business model
It's cheaper - you need less money
than for a self-start business
It's easier - banks prefer to lend
to franchise operations
If you've dreamed of being your own
boss but are risk-averse, franchising
may be the solution for you.
hen choosing a franchise,
there are a number of factors
to take into consideration,
from investment level versus potential
return, to lifestyle changes you may
have to make and the cultural fit.
Franchise companies, like any business, have
unique cultures that reflect their brand. A good
franchisor will work hard to maintain and protect
that culture, by only awarding franchises to
those whose values align with the company's.
Business Doctors' values of confidence, trust,
empathy and humility are integrated throughout
the network at every level. Our values originate
with the founders and trickle down to our
support staff, regional directors and franchisees,
and from there to our customers. Our values are
at the core of everything we do.
Business Doctors franchisees need to be
confident and able to empathise. Small-business
owners need to trust their service providers, and
we gain this trust through friendly advice.
A new franchisee needs to learn new skills
and get to grips with new systems and perhaps
even a new industry. Our support team is an
invaluable resource in this. Having everyone on
the same page ensures a positive relationship.
Our franchisees also spend lot of time with
each other, collaborating on projects or doubleheading workshops, seminars and events. It can
be an incredible experience when such events
are full of individuals who share the same values.
What Business Doctors do
Small- and medium-size enterprises (SMEs) are
anxious to adopt the same business-growth
strategies used by large corporations to great
success. This includes the use of outside
expertise. Unfortunately, consultancy services
can't simply be scaled down for SMEs.
A small-business owner who has befriended
his employees needs more than advice when
cutting staff. The passionate entrepreneur is illequipped to handle a dispassionate assessment.
The multitasking MD is too busy with day-to-day
issues to look five years into the future.
Business Doctors provide SMEs with a
host of proprietary programmes designed to
help them develop effective strategic plans,
improve their organisational efficiency, involve
their staff in organisational change and
master their supply chain.
Trained and equipped to deliver packaged
programmes, Business Doctors share the
benefit of their own experience and help
other businesses enjoy the success they
themselves have achieved.
Supported by a national franchise support
team, Business Doctors enjoy both the
independence of business ownership and
the benefits of a supportive, collaborative
nationwide professional network.
