Franchise Support Network
PROJECT GOALS
It is critical that all franchisees have the necessary initial training when they start out as a new franchisee of your network. It is important to remember a new franchisee is an untrained person with no experience operating the specific model; they need to be taught to operate the business independently according to the franchise operations and procedure manual. Training modules and programs need to be developed for ongoing training. Even though franchisees know how to run the business, refresher/ongoing training is essential to make sure standards are maintained. In the current economic conditions, it would be valuable to incorporate a training programme on how franchisees need to adapt their business pro-actively, read the market and implement changes when necessary.

TARGETED SECTOR
• Small business owners who have potential in franchising their business ideas

Registration and Training
PROJECT GOALS
It is of utmost importance to register the franchise trade name and trademark, logo and slogan with the help of a specialist trademark attorney. We would then open a second or third outlet. Having multiple operating stores will help you learn more about the types of locations, procedures and advertising suitable for your business. This will also develop your track record giving your company credibility. Create structures for every aspect of your business system because this is what you are selling as a franchisor, a working business structure that guarantees success. Put together a training program for new franchisees. The franchisee must know your systems and procedures. Franchising is all about sticking to the same system. You will have to setup all the legal documents required to start a franchise, including franchise agreements and licensing with your specialist franchise attorney. Prepare a Disclosure Document which should typically contain the company history, owners and officers’ backgrounds, required investment breakdown, financial statements, main aspects in the franchise agreement, existing franchisee’s information, and litigation history. The contents of franchise agreements, as well as Disclosure Documents are now regulated in terms of the Consumer Protection Act and the Regulations published under this act. Compliance with the aforesaid legislation is compulsory. Each and every franchisor would be well advised to ensure that its franchise documentation complies with all applicable legislation. Continue finding new ways to help the franchise be more profitable. Send newsletters, give additional training at no cost to the franchisee, hold regular conventions and recognize outstanding franchisee performances. A happy franchisee means a happy customer. Your franchising aim is to sell franchises in large numbers. Nothing happens until franchises are sold.

TARGETED SECTOR
• Small business owners who have potential in franchising their business ideas
