The Benefits of Franchising

“I can change. I can live out my own imagination. I can tie myself to my limitless potential instead of my limiting past. I can become my own first creator.”

Steven Covey – 7 Habits of Highly Effective People

Franchising has today become the fastest growing vehicle for businesspeople to establish themselves in the corporate environment in South Africa. The franchising concept is growing at a phenomenal rate in South Africa, and for the following very important reasons:

  • It takes a lot of risk out of starting a venture.
  • Income security and professional back-up are ensconced in the concept.
  • Franchisees benefit from the established brand name, marketing and advertising support, a proven blueprint and coordinated systems and procedures.
  • Franchising has been endorsed by The Department of Trade and Industry as a means of empowering and assisting new businesspeople.
  • There are currently over 21,000 franchises operating in South Africa as more and more people are forsaking their traditional corporate career paths in favour of the entrepreneurial opportunities franchising provides.
