Evaluating a Franchise Training Program
Janay Robinson | Posted Tuesday, April 28, 2015 |
I recently read an article on franchise.com titled Evaluating a Franchise Training Program: Five Essentials to Ensure Your Potential Franchisor Will Provide Adequate Support. Bart Puett, President and CEO of Maid Brigade, Inc., and author of this article, outlines a checklist of five key support assets to look for when evaluating a franchise and its training program.
Bart mentions “Smart franchisors understand the support and training tools they offer franchisees helps create a successful, profitable and rewarding franchise business and most of the solid franchise opportunities will come with a support program from which you can benefit.” With the franchising industry becoming more appealing each year (to both the franchisor and franchisee) the adoption of innovative technology plays a central part in distinguishing the leaders from the rest of the players in the market. The quality and convenience of franchise training is rising higher and higher on the list of “must haves” for potential buyers when researching the right franchise for them.
The 5 key support assets he outlines to look for include intensive pre-opening training, mentoring, on-site team trainers, franchise consultants and ongoing support and training. He mentions “When you evaluate the positive attributes of purchasing a particular franchise, look closely at what programs, materials and financial resources are made available for engaging, in-depth and supportive training throughout the life of your franchise business.” Training is a top priority when launching a franchise. Potential franchise buyers are looking for security and support from the franchisor in order to be set up for success.
