Perhaps you’re an executive who has been displaced. Maybe you are dissatisfied with the way you’re being treated by your company. You realize that your labors have been creating wealth for others but not for yourself. You’ve had the idea of owning your own business as a solution to these and other issues but you’ve heard all the horror stories about the failure rates of independent businesses. A Pop-A-Lock Franchise may be the answer for you.
A Business Strategy
Franchising is nothing more or less than a business strategy for getting and keeping customers. It is a marketing system for creating an image in the minds of customers about the company’s products or services. It is a method for distributing products and services that satisfy customer needs. Franchising is a network of interdependent business relationships that allows a number of people to share “brand identification”, a successful method of doing business, and a strong marketing and distribution system.
For the franchisee, franchising is about risk reduction and safety. You give up the lack of structure associated with being an “independent owner” to become part of a group of people committed to building a brand and dominating markets, as Pop-A-Lock does, using a solid, tested and proven formula. In Pop-A-Lock’s case, a recession proof business model that is consolidating multi-billion dollar industries which are fragmented. You don’t have to guess about the most effective ways to build your business, there is a specific system to use.
Pop-A-Lock provides a proven method of doing business (the operating system), a brand and trademark that will have value in the eyes of the customer based on execution of the operating system, and the initial and ongoing support you receive from the Franchisor so you won’t have to reinvent the wheel to be successful. You provide capital to expand the brand (faster than the franchisor can by itself) and the management talent, with our help, to run the business and execute the operating system.
A franchise system should also provide group buying power to cut your operating expenses, faster growth due to tested marketing programs, predictable results based on your adherence to the operating system and less risk of your invested capital, as Pop-A-Lock does. The trade offs for you are the royalty fees you pay the franchisor for the operating license and some of the requirements you will deal with on the method of operating the business.
The Bottom Line
Ask yourself if you would rather “own the playing field” vs. just competing on it. The answer to that question will tell you whether a Pop-A-Lock franchise is worth exploring for you.
