Lower Risks. Most business experts agree that a franchise operation has a lower risk of failure than an independent business. The statistics on this vary depending on the definition of failure. Yet, whatever statistics are used, they consistently suggest that a franchise is more likely to succeed than are independent businesses.

Established product or service. A franchisor offers a product or service that has sold successfully. An independent business is based on both an untried idea and operation.

Experience of franchisor. The experience of the franchisor’s management team increases the potential for success.

Group purchasing power. It is often possible to obtain lower-cost goods and supplies through the franchisor. Lower costs result from the group purchasing power of all franchises. To protect this benefit, most franchise agreements restrict the franchisee from purchasing goods and supplies through other sources.

Name recognition. Established franchisors can offer national or regional name recognition. This may not be true with a new franchisor. However, a benefit of starting with a new franchisor is the potential to grow as its business and name recognition grow.

A franchisor with many franchisees will typically have a highly refined system based on the entire experience of all these operations.
