A major key to establishing franchise companies is good training. Usually, a franchisor will provide all the training you need to get up and running. You'll receive an operating manual as well.
Staffing Franchise Companies
You may also need to hire staff. While this may seem to be a given, some opportunities do not require the hiring of employees. If you choose a business card printing or gift basket franchise, for example, you may be able to run it without hiring help. However, if your business is a success, hiring staff may still be a big part of your operation.
Finding good staff for franchise companies does take some work, especially when the business is in a highly specialized industry. Hiring employees who are already experienced with your franchise can be beneficial, as can hiring those who have worked for a competitor. These individuals should already be familiar with the sometimes-inflexible operating policies of a franchise. They should have learned enough from their experiences to function well as part of a team. In some cases, franchisors do everything in their power to help new companies succeed, including providing employee leads.
