Franchise Your Business Using FDS
Developing a franchise is a challenging undertaking and only advisable when armed with a wealth of practical experience from trusted franchise consultants. Franchise Development Services (FDS) has been providing franchise consultancy services to UK companies launching their franchises since 1981 – there is no organisation in the world with more franchising experience.
It is surprising how many budding franchisors seek help only after expending a substantial investment on failing to build a workable franchise package themselves. Accessing the franchise wisdom of more experienced parties is an insurance against having to retread these steps further down the line – a costly and difficult endeavour if franchisees are already signed up, especially if the Franchise Agreement needs amending.
There are a multitude of weaknesses to avoid, such as:
- a lack of professional presentation and behaviour
- weak brand profile
- a weak infrastructure for training and support
- a lack of commitment to franchising
- unproven systems
- an inability to adapt to changing markets
- a lack of continuity in key management
- a lack of effective communication with franchisees
