After working with thousands of businesses in Singapore, our team of specialists have noticed a common trend that sets low growth businesses apart from high growth ones.
Unfortunately, the market now is a harsh world. It is not enough to be hardworking to build a small business anymore. With global players like Grab that are funded with billions of dollars, small businesses will struggle.
A team of result driven social media experts working for your project!
Our strategy is a strong mix of time-tested stable fundamentals with digital marketing and technology integration.
We build companies that are IPO viable and can last BEYOND the original founder or business owner.
We use systems and external funding strategies so that we do not limit company growth based on your next customer sale or the cash-flow of your family and friends.
Our team has successfully turned stagnant businesses into franchised and IPO super-brands.
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.

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.
