Getting Past the Franchise Myths

By Admin

Ever thought of becoming our own boss? Buying a franchise versus starting your own business from scratch can be a daunting choice. There are so many myths out there about becoming a franchise owner that they may be holding you back from building and growing a viable franchise, like a Cherry Blow Dry Bar.

While owning a franchise isn’t a “get rich quick” solution, with determination, hard work, and support from the franchise, it can be a great option to building a business you can call your own.

Myth: You must have experience owning a business before starting a franchise.

Unfortunately, this is a common misconception. In fact, starting a franchise is in some ways easier than starting a business from scratch because you have the necessary business management training offered to you by the franchisor. You will learn skills about starting a business, financial management, relationship administration, and more while making your business dreams come to fruition.

Myth: The franchisor gives you minimal support in your endeavor.

This couldn’t be further from the truth. Our Cherry Blow Dry Bar franchise believes in the success of our franchisees – it’s a team effort to get your location up, running, and successful! You will not only have an established brand name behind you, but our franchise plan offers initial and ongoing support and a great network of professionals.

Besides adopting a solid brand name and support, at Cherry Blow Dry Bar we will give you tools to recruit and hire staff, hands-on stylist training, retail product knowledge, and more. We are here to coach, mentor, and guide you the entire way.

Myth: When you become a franchisee, you give up your creativity and freedom.

Although Cherry Blow Dry Bar does have its custom operational model for all franchisees to follow, there is always room for creativity and innovation. You are in charge of your salon – from hiring/firing, payroll and scheduling, overall management style, and to some degree marketing and renovations. Our simple business system is streamlined for efficiency and has been proven to be effective whether you are running a single salon or multiple salons.

Once you get beyond the misconceptions of what a franchise is really like, you’ll see that a Cherry Blow Dry Bar franchise is the perfect investment.
