Businesses are killed by Traditional Growth Strategies, Is Your Business One Of Them?

  1. Businesses that create winning products, services, or offering a specific expertise.
  2. Businesses that build customers organically and slowly. For example, they rely on referrals, old, and outdated business growth techniques.
  3. Businesses that take years to get customer traction and a long period of time to build up their brand because of low budgets.
  4. Businesses that take years to open more new stores or expand to other locations due to cashflow problems.
  5. Businesses that cannot keep up with the market changes and innovations. As a result, the business is either dying a slow death or totally disrupted by the popularity of Grab, Alibaba and other online giants. 
  1. The business has to be dependant on customer’s revenue to sustain. 
  2. The business has no cashflow to expand.
  3. The business does not have the ability to attract and retain good talent.
  4. The business is susceptible to copycats or employees will start their own business and become a competitor.
  5. The business would not allow the owner to retire because it would stop immediately without the owner. 
  6. The business environment is usally low of energy and lack of motivation for the team to work. This is because the whole operation and processes have always been the same for many years.
  7. The business is extremely slow and it is a painful process to compete with others in the market. This is especially the case for a business that only consist just the owner and a small team.

Why Franchise?

With Global Players Like Grab, Small Businesses Will Struggle.

All business owners will work hard and do their best to fight the market for survival. If opportunities arise, the business can grow. But if doesn’t, the business remains stagnant.  

How often does opportunities knock on your door?

Our team has successfully turned stagnant businesses into franchised and IPO super-brands.

Unlock The Digital Growth And Utilise The Investor Funded Highway Strategy.

Franchising is a hyper growth tool for businesses that are facing stagnation and growing competition. Think of the biggest brands in Singapore, and you cannot escape franchising as a growth strategy.

Done well, it can mean the difference between an IPO and a slow gruelling climb of your business that might end up facing giant competitors that have scaled before you.

Our track record has proven this fact over the last 10 years. We have been on the side of being the industry giant which has eaten up its competitors by sheer speed of growth.

We do it with a combination of 3 things:

Franchising to use investors' money and lower the risk of the business owner and founder.

Proper exit planning, systemisation and documentation to ensure high company valuation.

What Are The Advantages Of Building a Franchise Business?

Franchising Allow You To Forge Strong Relationships With Like-Minded Businesses. It's an Effective Growth Strategy!

To you, this translates to a ready customer base that will patronize a brand they have already come to love. There’s no need to experiment about what works or not because everything is laid out for you.

Some franchises cost just a fraction of what you would normally spend if you start from scratch. Building a premium preschool on your own for example, may cost anywhere from $700,000 to $1,000,000, while a preschool franchise costs lesser as you dont have to recruit the curriculum team and supporting staff 1 year in advance.

Franchising companies want to ensure that their formula for success will be replicated in each of their franchisees. Thus, they offer help, training and support when you ask for it or whenever they deem necessary.

Interested franchisors are aware that overlapping territories affect the performance and profitability of their franchises. They conduct researches about the population of a certain area as well as the demographics of target customers prior to awarding it to a franchisee. They also calculate probable sales according to the results of their research.

When the going gets tough, startups run to investors for additional funds. When investors have to choose between an independent startup and a franchisee, they will choose a franchisee. Why? It’s because a franchisee belongs to a system that has been proven in terms of profitability and stability.

Experts say marketing expenditures average at 10% of a company’s gross annual profit. That 10% may be affordable to huge corporations, but not to a startup like you who’s still trying to recoup your investment. Not if you belong to a franchise. The franchisor only collects a small percentage for hiring marketing professionals, creation of promotional materials, advertisements, etc.

Innovation is one of the keys to capturing the attention of modern consumers. You don’t have something new, you don’t have business. Yes, you can do innovations on your own, but that would mean investing a great deal of your time, effort and resources. A franchise, on the other hand, has a department dedicated to creating innovations for the benefit of all franchisees. Thus you have the advantage of continuing innovation without lifting a finger.

Being an entrepreneur is filled with uncertainties.  You might make your first million or lose several millions. Not when you’re a franchisee. The calculated risk has been studied by the franchisor and  they will be there to guide you through.

In case you wish to exit, you have better chances of selling your business. Remember that a franchise has an established business model in place, making it a desirable acquisition for others who would like to take the franchise route.

There are many reasons for the high success rate of a franchise model. Persuading a franchisee to use your brand isn’t rocket science. Franchisees do not like trial and error. They want a proper system to follow. Your business model has to be proven and secure.
