Top 6 Reasons To Be Your Own Boss
Type into Google, “benefits of owning your own business” or “why should I become an entrepreneur?” Odds are, the first reason you’ll find for almost every inquiry is that you get to “be your own boss.”
And honestly, that’s one of the best reasons of them all (in our opinion!). In addition to the many benefits of starting a franchise, the overarching motivation for most of our franchisees is that they wanted to be self-employed and have more control over their lives and careers. If you’re thinking about owning your own business, take a look at some of the top reasons our franchisees enjoy their self-employment.
Unlimited career opportunities.
When you own your own business, there’s no such thing as feeling like you’re at a “dead-end job.” With a franchise, there’s always room for growth and innovation. If you feel like your first Fazoli’s franchise is running like a well-oiled machine, maybe it’s time to challenge yourself and embark on multi-unit ownership.
You’re always “in the know.”
Not only do you know absolutely everything that’s going on in your restaurant, but you’re the one calling the shots. Long gone are the days of waiting to hear back from your boss about whether or not you were approved for that vacation day or when your next big meeting is scheduled.
You’re almost never stuck at a desk.
Nearly 70-percent of full-time Americans spend their days sitting at a desk, despite the fact that most of them don’t enjoy it. As a Fazoli’s franchisee, you’ll enjoy a nice mix of responsibilities, including scouting locations, learning how the kitchen runs, coordinating grand openings, and interacting with guests. So needless to say, you’ll almost never spend eight hours sitting at a desk!
A greater sense of satisfaction.
As an employee, you probably got a “great job” email or slight pay raise for a job well-done. But when you’re the boss, you get to be the one who makes a difference in your employees lives by providing them with a stable job and place they’re proud to work at. Plus, when you purchase a Fazoli’s franchise, you build it from the ground up (along with the help of our support team, of course) so you’re more personally invested in its success.
The work hours (for the most part!).
Don’t be fooled, our franchisees work long, hard hours to earn their success. But once the initial groundwork has been laid (both literally and figuratively) you have much more flexible work hours than a traditional 9 to 5.
Because retirement accounts provided by employers tend to have maximum contribution limits, self-employment allows you to make higher annual contributions to your personal 401(k). With more money in your retirement account, you can enjoy the benefits of retiring earlier than most of your friends your age!
