Тема: What is a franchise when starting a business?

All too often, inadequate planning and development of a franchise business structure before offering franchises is reason why newcomers to franchising will fail.

Second, this approach assumes that even if a similar strategy is implemented, that the resources of both organizations are similar.  Every organization comes to franchising from a different starting point – with different strengths and weaknesses.  Competing with an established franchisor by going head-to-head in an area of their strengths can be a huge mistake.

The present corporation dates its founding to the opening of a franchised restaurant by businessman Ray Kroc in Des Plaines, Illinois on April 15, 1955, the ninth McDonald''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''s restaurant overall; this location was demolished in 1984 after many remodels. Kroc later purchased the McDonald brothers'''''''''''''''''''''''''''''''' equity in the company and led its worldwide expansion, and the company became listed on the public stock markets ten years later. Kroc was also noted for aggressive business practices , compelling the McDonald brothers to leave the fast-food industry.

Many business owners erroneously think that marketing is something you do at the beginning of your new business and then periodically when the need arises.  Marketing is as essential to your business as the product or service your business offers.  In fact, marketing should be a daily assignment for someone in your organization.  If not the best person, YOU, then who will fill this role?

With more than 33,000 locations across the world, McDonald''''s golden arches are among the most recognizable corporate logos in the world. Millions of people visit the fast food restaurant every day, attracted by convenience, product familiarity, competitive prices and the relative ease of finding a McDonald''''s location almost anywhere you find yourself. McDonald''''s began its franchise operations in 1955. For franchise owners, the company has very specific requirements for where a restaurant can be located.

Nudlez, a Washington Corporation, is in the fast-food service industry. The company has developed a unique business model that reduces overhead by utilizing mobile vending units as opposed to brick and mortar stores. This is a very popular alternative to dining in larger business centric cities.

Valued in 20XX at $105 billion, the domestic market for "fast" food is large and segmented, with Asian style foods representing 1 of the top 3 choices in Seattle at 35% of the market. Nudlez will initially target central business district (CBD) lunchtime crowds, where high-income earning but time-poor individuals are most greatly concentrated. Shopping malls, university campuses, weekend markets, and local business areas will then be targeted. Event catering and supermarket convenience foods will be markets that Nudlez then diversifies into.

It doesn't matter if you're visiting a McDonald's in California or Connecticut, America or Australia – you're going to have a similar experience wherever you are. This highlights Ray Kroc's vision for McDonald's from the beginning.

“Quality, Service, Cleanliness and Value” was Kroc's motto. His belief in this motto was so strong he went on to found a training school, Hamburger University, in 1961 where the curriculum is based upon the four concepts, as well as lessons he had learned from his initial years in operating the franchise. Consistency, of course, is the lynchpin of any franchise system and Hamburger University has systematically taught future franchisees how to run a McDonald's restaurant the way Ray Kroc envisioned since its opening over 50 years ago.

There are a lot of franchise in the Philippines and you might want to look at them first. First you might want to ask why Chowking? There are lots of other franchises. There s Goldilocks, Red Ribbon, Jollibee, Mcdonalds,etc. There are also small and medium franchises available. It s also important to read the franchise agreement to ascertain what the terms are. Good management must also be available. Always have a back up plan. What if it doesn t work out? What are the possible results of your investing decision? What are the basis of opening up a franchise. You may want to read some materials or attend seminars before starting a business. Mabuhay!
