The Best Places to Open a Franchise – choose your sites carefully
As the success or failure of any business can depend solely on its location, carefully selecting the ideal site for your franchise is crucial. Many start-ups fail simply because little or no market research is conducted prior to launch. Failures result from investors opting for available premises in unsuitable or untested locations, over sites where a greater initial outlay may be required, but where there is guaranteed demand for their product or service.
Working with your franchisor
Big name franchise opportunities, representing the best investments, provide the proven market research skills and track record of the experienced franchisor. In such a business relationship, geographical guidance and recommendations are always available to investors. When a multi-store development strategy for franchisees of a global brand concentrates on one area, the location of each outlet is as important as any other outlet in that area, so selected accordingly.
In the High Street
High Street locations in communities with high to mid-market populations are where franchises work well. Areas with adequate parking, regular foot traffic, amenities, attractions and recreational facilities, will provide excellent investment opportunities for potential franchisees. In such locations, especially retail areas with an established residential component, market dominance or a high market share is certainly achievable for a trusted household name.
