5 Characteristics of Successful Franchisees
It would be easy to say that great entrepreneurs like Steve Jobs, Bill Gates, and Oprah Winfrey were destined for success from the moment they were born. But in reality, here at Fazoli’s know that success in business is earned, not given — just ask our franchisees!
The best part about our franchisees is that they’re all different. Each one comes from a different background and brings their own unique personality to their location. That being said, there are a few things that each of our successful franchisees have in common…
1. They’re planners.
A big misconception about the franchise world is that you need to be a big risk taker. In all honesty, that’s far from the truth. While the initial decision to become your own boss is a bit of a risk, every decision a franchisee makes after that is calculated and well-thought-out. From the location you choose to the people you hire, good franchisees do their homework before they decide to do anything.
2. They’re eager to learn and work with the franchise.
The franchise world’s motto is, “In business for yourself, not by yourself.” Here at Fazoli’s, we couldn’t agree more! In our 29 years, we’ve learned a thing or two about what does and doesn’t work (just one more reason why owning a Fazoli’s franchise isn’t as big of a risk as you would think!). Our team is there to support incoming franchisees and give them all of the tools they’ll need to successfully run their franchise.
3. They love working with others.
Everyone who walks through our doors, whether guests or employees, is a part of the Fazoli’s family, and we treat each other as such. Successful franchisees communicate effectively with both their employees and their guests. In doing so, they create an atmosphere that is inviting and warm.
4. They’re hardworking…
From staying late, to helping out in the kitchen washing dishes, successful franchisees are willing to do anything to get the job done.
5. …But also know when to delegate.
Even the hardest working franchisee can’t do everything themselves. That’s why it’s so important to hire a team of people who want to work just as hard as you do to make your business a success.
