Determining your Long-term Goals
At Expedia CruiseShipCenters we begin discussing your long-term plan before you even become a Franchise Partner. When you enter into franchise ownership you’re embarking on an investment that one day you’ll want to sell for a healthy profit! For some it’s a long-term plan, helping them foray into retirement by either developing a trusted Office Manager to operate when they’re vacationing or bringing on their millennial children to purchase the business over time. Some Franchise Partners plan to sell the business in a certain number of years, so their goal is to propel growth faster than others. In this case, they work full time building the business while cultivating their team to produce and hit targets, so the business is attractive to any incoming buyer as it’s on an upward trajectory.
With the growing popularity of entrepreneurship and small business optimism over the last several years, finding a buyer of has become easier. Starting a business from scratch has many commitments and it can sometimes be overwhelming especially for first-time entrepreneurs. However, opening and operating a franchised business can ease this transition with the security of a proven system and reliable support team. Buying an existing franchise that is already in operation can further eliminate any reservations you might have.
