Purchase an Existing Franchise in an Established Location

While many think of starting a business from the ground up when purchasing a franchise, resale opportunities provide entrepreneurs with the ability to purchase an already established business. The one key advantage of a franchise resale is that you’re purchasing an existing and established business, thereby avoiding the startup phase—often the most difficult period. If the sale is an attractive offer, you’ll likely assume the existing customer base, positive cash flow, and possibly even the staff.

Exploring Franchise Resales

Franchise resales are one of the ways in which entrepreneurs can achieve the reality of becoming their own boss.
The many benefits of buying a franchise resale include:

SUPPORT

The existing owner may be available to walk you through the many facets of the operation; from systems and processes to vendors and reputation management.

HEAD START

A franchise resale opportunity is a business that is already in operation; you don’t have to start from nothing.

LOCATION

If the business requires a retail location, it already exists. Avoid the wait for real estate to be secured and built.

EMPLOYEES

Inheriting trained employees can help you be more successful by saving you time & money, rather than procuring a new staff from scratch.

DATABASE

A database of customers already exists; you don’t have to wait for your first customer.

RECOGNITION

Brand recognition in the local marketplace is already established.

CASH FLOW

The business has a history of cash flow and expenses which will allow for better forecasting.

FINANCING

Financing may be easier to secure with a history of business (from the seller or lending institutions).
