If you’re serious about setting up a franchised business, you will need to do plenty of re-search to help you make the right decision. There are three key areas you need to look at in detail:

Yourself - Your franchise business will have a much greater chance of success if it’s something that uses the skills and experience you already have. Think about what you are good at, and what you enjoy. There are literally thousands of franchise opportunities out there, and focusing on the ones that play to your strengths will help you build your business much faster. Also, you need to look at your finances and decide how much you are able to invest. Most franchises need an initial investment as well as ongoing royalties, and it’s a good idea to know what you can afford before you get excited about a business opportunity that might be beyond your means.

The Franchises - Once you have a better idea of what kind of business opportunity would suit you, and what you can afford, you need to start looking at the most suita-ble franchises in a lot more detail. Request some information from each of the ones you’re interested in. In the US, franchises are required to provide you with a Fran-chise Disclosure Document (FDD), that will provide you with all of the important in-formation about the opportunity. Find out what will be expected of you as a franchi-see, and what support you can expect to receive. As well as studying the FDD speak to current franchise owners, ideally ones you have sourced yourself, to see if the re-ality matches up to the company's sales pitch.

The Market - When you think you’ve found the right business opportunity for you, all the numbers add up, and the current franchisees have given you some positive feedback, you need to do what any business startup would do and make sure there is a market for the service you’ll be offering. Do some research on the competition in your local area to make sure the market isn’t already saturated. Find out more about the industry you’ll be going into; is it a growing industry that will make it easier for you to develop your business, or is it in decline, meaning it might not be the best franchise to choose?

When you’ve decided that starting a franchise is right for you, as well as doing all the re-search outlined above, make sure you spend some time looking through the reviews of the various businesses you are interested in. This will help you get a better picture of what the experts and other franchisees think of them, so you can be sure you make the right choice.
