Since its inception, you have been involved in the day-to-day management and marketing of your business. It's your baby and we understand.
Building a franchise system is no walk in the park. There are many hours involved meeting with your franchise consultant, discussing operational procedures, meeting vendors, and reviewing operational materials. All this happens before you sell your first franchise. Once you begin selling franchises, you will be working with franchisees on site selection, buildout of their store, plus delivering training and support programs.
The point we want to make is, now is the time to begin the search for your replacement of the day-to-day management of your business. It will always be your "baby", but you may not be able to devote the hours as you once did. Your franchise is your second baby!
