Successful franchise businesses typically start with great franchise owners. Being a great franchise owner takes a variety of hard skills as well as intangibles like a commitment to customer service, the dedication to go above and beyond and interpersonal communication skills.
Every franchise business relies on the business acumen of its owner to effectively and efficiently manage daily operations and drive the company forward. Great franchise owners come in a variety of shapes and sizes, but they typically have a few traits in common. Here’s a look at some of the characteristics that make for a great franchise owner:
The ability to manage others
Franchise owners are responsible for hiring, training and managing their staff. Qualified, properly trained and properly managed employees have the tools to provide exceptional customer service every day. The best franchise owners are skilled at effectively and efficiently managing their workforce.
The commitment to provide world-class customer experiences
When consumers are faced with too many options, the actual products and services become more of a commodity. The differentiator then lies in the quality of service, the experience customers have with the brand, and in the business’ commitment to providing that world-class customer experience from the top down. Successful franchise owners are committed to providing world-class customer experience.
The dedication to go beyond expectations
To build a sustainable system that consistently goes above and beyond customers’ expectations, successful brands rely on complementary efforts at each level of the organization. In a franchise system, at the local level, this requires franchise owners who are willing to go above and beyond their customers’ expectations by understanding what’s most important to customers and delivering customized high-quality service every day.
