the franchise king shares the benefits of owning a franchise in 2024

Starting a business can be daunting, especially if you’re doing it alone.

But if you’d rather not go completely solo, you should take a hard look at franchise business ownership. Why?

Because it can be the best of both worlds.

Specifically, franchise owners have the freedom to run their business while still having the support and guidance of a larger company. In other words, they get the autonomy of being a small business owner within a structured system. A great system!

Here are 12 ingredients all great franchise systems have

But there are 3 more great things about being a franchise owner. Here they are.

The 3 Great Things About Being A Franchise Owner

1. Assistance From Franchise Headquarters

Getting off the ground as a new small business owner can be daunting, but when you own a franchise, you’re provided with treasure trove of business support that independent entrepreneurs don’t generally get.

For example, almost immediately after you officially become a franchisee, you’ll receive help choosing your location.

Next, you’ll receive formal training at headquarters. And once you’ve finished, you’ll know everything you need to open and run your new franchise business successfully.

And when you’re ready to open your franchise, most franchisors provide on-site help during your official Grand Opening. This helps ensure your journey as a franchisee starts on solid footing. But it doesn’t stop there.

That’s because you’ll receive ongoing support from franchise headquarters for the entire term of your franchise agreement.

Note: the support you receive from franchise headquarters isn’t always instant. Read why.

2. Proven Marketing And Advertising

Imagine having access to proven marketing and advertising strategies that have been refined over the years by the franchisor’s track record of success.

Translation: you don’t need to come up with marketing and advertising slogans or ideas.

That’s because when you own a franchise business, your franchisor’s marketing team will provide all the templates you need to market your local franchise business.

Compare that to an independent small business owner who needs to come up with advertising and marketing ideas all the time. That’s a lot of pressure. Plus it takes time and brain space. I don’t know about you, but I would much rather spend my time taking care of my customers and making sales.

Here’s an article about franchise marketing geared toward franchise executives.

3. Buying power

When you’re a franchisee, you have the ability to leverage the buying power of a larger network.

That means getting bulk discounts on goods and services that every franchisee in the network uses. This advantage allows franchisees to acquire resources at competitive prices, potentially increasing profit margins.

Think of it this way.

If you own a franchise hardware store, do you think the independent hardware store down the street has any chance to compete with the type of pricing you, as part of a 400-unit franchise company, can get? Exactly.

In a nutshell, by joining forces with other franchisees in the franchise network, you’ll benefit from economies of scale when purchasing supplies or equipment necessary for your business operations.

Bottom line?

Maximizing profits by harnessing the collective purchasing strength of a franchise system is great for small business owners who want to establish themselves in the market efficiently.


In conclusion, franchisees benefit from established business assistance. They also benefit from proven marketing and advertising strategies. And their buying power allows them to secure better deals and increase profits.

I’d say the opportunity of small business ownership comes with strong advantages for folks who own franchises.
