Why would someone want to join a franchise? I know mikeup is an owner of one; many are (was that the right use of a semi-colon?). So there must be some valid advantages.
But, I would think that since window cleaning isn’t really branded, what kind of benefits would franchising include (in my area the average person has never heard of the main local franchise that tryed to buy me out and then pay me 14 buck an hour to work for them! Pah!).
I’m would never want to pay a royalty fee- I want to still be able to afford to eat 3 meals a day (or six mini-meals if I’m feeling physical-fitnessy). I already have to fork out a lot as a business owner.
I’m thinking that as a franchise owner you could tell potential customers that the company is huge and its been in business forever, but what else? And is it more advantageous if you are a commercial window cleaner?
