Often one of the biggest challenges to becoming your own boss is finding the right opportunity to invest in. Knowing where to go to find out everything you need to know about what’s on the market right now is half the battle, so to help you we’ve created a list of places you can visit to find great franchising opportunities.
4 Places to Find a Franchise Opportunity
- Online Classifieds – A great place to start any business-for-sale search are the online classifieds. Websites like Seek Commercial (com.au) or Domain Business (http://business.domain.com.au/) offer a great range of businesses for sale, with excellent search criteria to help you find the perfect business based on location, category or price range. You can also save businesses to a shortlist and set up an email alert for new business listings that match your search criteria so you never miss out on a great deal.
- Brand Websites – Most businesses that offer franchise opportunities have a section on their website dedicated to just that. At Kwik Kopy, for example, we have 2. The first page (http://www.kwikkopy.com.au/franchise-opportunities) is a place where you can input your details to receive a franchise information kit with everything you need to know about becoming a Kwik Kopy Franchisee, the second page (http://www.kwikkopy.com.au/franchise-opportunities/businesses-for-sale) lists current Kwik Kopy businesses for sale. If your preferred brand is a serious franchisor, they’ll have lots of information for you on their site.
- Franchise Council of Australia – The Franchise Council of Australia (http://www.franchise.org.au/) is the peak body for the franchising sector in Australia and is an invaluable resource for anything and everything to do with franchising in Australia, for not only franchisors and franchisees but even lawyers, banks and accountants. Membership is voluntary, but there is also loads of free information on the site for those who don’t want to pay. Check out their online bookshop for some great books on becoming a franchisee.
- Forums – One of the greatest resources for a business owner is the experiences of other business owners which is why we always recommend finding a great community of business minded people to help you in your journey to becoming a franchisee. A great franchise company will offer opportunities for you to connect with their other franchise owners but in the meantime connect with other business minded people at com.au. Forums are also a great way to hear about business opportunities before they hit the mainstream market.
