What are the benefits of owning a franchise?
Franchising offers entrepreneurs many of the same benefits as owning your own (non-franchise) business, but with the support of a well-recognized brand name and proven business model.
When you franchise with The UPS Store, Inc., you have the benefit of being in business for yourself without being in business by yourself. The UPS Store franchise owners enjoy benefits like:
- Access to an established brand and proven business model
- National and regional marketing and advertising programs and support
- Ongoing business consulting and other business support
- Support of an expansive network of fellow franchise owners
Let’s take a closer look at some of these points, starting with the benefit of having access to an established brand and proven business model. When you partner with The UPS Store, Inc., rather than trying to figure everything out on your own, you are giving yourself a running start compared to entrepreneurs that start businesses from the ground up without the recognition and support of an established brand.
Starting a business is generally quite expensive. You may need to obtain business permits and licenses, enter into leases and vendor contracts, purchase inventory, hire, train and manage employees, purchase or lease furniture and equipment, obtain business insurance, secure protection for intellectual property rights and much more. As a franchisee, you will need to make many of these same investments, but rather than shopping around for each item or service individually, the franchisor such as The UPS Store, Inc. will guide you throughout the process of starting your business.
And, the support doesn’t stop there. When you franchise with The UPS Store, Inc, we provide you various tools and resources along the way. This support includes access to our expansive network of franchisees who have already learned how the business works and are happy to share insights with their fellow franchisees. So, if you find yourself struggling or in need of a solution to a problem, there’s no shortage of fellow franchisees you can call upon who have likely been in your position before and likely have the answers you seek.
