Business Plan Franchise

Expert business plan service for franchise entrepreneurs

A professional business plan for franchises.

All set to follow in the footsteps of Taco Bell, McDonald’s, and Kentucky Fried Chicken? Franchising is a business model where the franchisee enters into a contract with the franchisor to use the latter’s business model and ideas. Although the word “franchising” immediately brings to mind these popular fast food chains, the concept can go beyond to include a wide array of sectors.

According to the International Franchise Association, these are the fastest growing franchise sectors:

  • Personal Services
  • Quick Service Restaurants
  • Table/Full-Service Restaurants
  • Retail Products and Services
  • Business Services

With the number of franchise establishments in 2018 increasing to 790,000  from the 2017 figure of 745,290, franchising as an industry contributes 3 percent to the GDP while providing more than nine million jobs. Buying a branded, established franchise is an effective and proven way of realizing your entrepreneurial aspirations. Although the upfront and working costs of owning and operating a franchise are as much as or at times more than starting an independent business, opting for the franchise model mitigates some of the risks and effort of establishing the brand.

Whether you intend to run a home health care service, a café or a grocery franchise, one of the first things you need to focus on putting together is your franchise business plan.

A professional business plan crafted by expert business plan writers is the most essential link between the conceptualization of a business idea to its successful execution. Especially for different markets, branches and regions you need to know how to write a business plan that highlights your vision and business model.

Why do Franchisees need a customized, professional business plan?

Franchisors require a business plan to be submitted by the individual applying to operate a franchise before awarding the contract. Entrepreneurs who are seeking capital for start-up expenses, tenant improvements, franchise fees or working capital needs also are required to submit a business plan to potential investors and lenders.

Last but not least, you need a professionally drafted franchise business plan to develop a keen understanding of how your business will take shape. In short, a franchise business plan drafted by experts is a roadmap to business success.

Here are some statistics that show how crucial a sound business plan is to success: A survey questioned thousands of participants on their business planning and goals. The responses indicated that the chances of obtaining capital or growing the business were higher for those who had a comprehensive business plan as compared to those who did not. Another study that involved 11,046 companies found that developing a professional franchise business plan improved business performance. Finally, businesses that have a complete business plan experience 30 percent faster growth as compared to those without a plan.

As with everything, the quality of a business plan makes a difference. A customized needs to be aligned with your business plan objective.

What does a franchies business plan has to include?

At a simple level, the business plan includes the following components:

  • Executive Summary
  • Business description – background, history, and objectives
  • Details of products or services
  • Industry and market analysis
  • Competitor’s analysis
  • Sales and marketing plan
  • Organization plan
  • Management structure
  • Financial forecast
  • Business resources
  • Conclusion

While there is no standard length for your franchise business plan, it is obvious that your investor or franchisor does not wish to read a novel-length document. A well-experienced business plan consultant knows exactly which chapters are the most important and how to handle regional differences regarding a business plan for different countries, regions or cities.

The key to creating an effective franchise business plan lies in including all crucial aspects of your franchise model clearly and concisely. A well-drafted franchise business plan gives your lender or franchisor the confidence to invest in your franchise.
