Benefits of owning a franchise
1. Lower failure rate
Statistics show that franchisees stand a much better chance of success than people who start independent businesses; independent businesses stand a 70 to 80 percent chance of not surviving the first few critical
years while franchisees have an 80 percent chance of surviving
2. Help with start-up and beyond
When one buys our franchise, you get all the equipment, supplies, and instruction or training needed to start the business. In many cases, we get ongoing training and help with management and marketing
3. Buying power
Your franchise will benefit from the collective buying power of The General Store as the franchisor can afford to buy in bulk and pass the savings along to franchisees. Inventory and supplies will cost less than if you were running an independent company.
A franchise business can be immensely profitable. Your profitability is guaranteed with The General Store.
