If you’re interested in investing in a franchise, take the time to seriously evaluate each opportunity. When you take the time to ask the right questions, you are more likely to identify successful opportunities. We recommend asking each franchise you are exploring these top five determining questions.
How do you keep a focus on growth and innovation?
Businesses who fail to maintain a high level of creativity or consistently make improvements, easily get left behind. For example, companies like Blockbuster, Borders and Kodak slowly disappeared after resisting change. When searching for the right franchise model, it’s important to learn more about the development plans of the franchise. Ask questions like, “what are your future plans for expansion?” Or, “How has your business changed as technology rapidly evolves?” Brands that stay fresh in the market are the ones who are consistently focused on innovation and continue to be more successful.
Are you able to easily adapt quickly to changes?
As many are aware, when dealing with any type of business environment there will be several changes that occur from unexpected forces. From organization structure to minimum wage, healthcare requirements and the overall economy, businesses are challenged. Whether it’s a large or small impact, the key to surviving good and bad economies is a proven business model.
How do you define your company’s competitive advantage?
Whichever franchise offering you choose to select, take a look at the competitive advantage offered. Whether its price, service, quality, location, or an existing customer base, having an advantage over your competitors will set your business apart. As always, understanding your customers is key to running a successful franchise. When reviewing franchise brands, use great resources like 2016’s Top Franchises from Entrepreneur’s Franchise 500 list to guide you through the decision process of buying a franchise.
What is your strategy to maintain customer retention?
In any type of business you enter, return customers will be one of your top quality sources for leads. Successful franchises always take the necessary steps to keep customers coming back. Remember, if a franchise is not actively gathering and analyzing customer feedback, they are missing out on significant opportunities. Dedication to customer experience generates awareness and referrals, leading to even greater success!
Chuck Pistor, President of Miracle Method says, “Obtaining direct feedback from our customers helps us to improve business operations, correct shortcomings, and deliver excellent customer service.” The Miracle Method Franchise is rapidly growing to keep up with the impressive demand for its refinishing services, combined with a proven business model, unparalleled training programs and ongoing support systems.
What type of training and support will be provided?
The number one question to discuss when reviewing a franchise opportunity is the type of training and support that will be provided. Startup and ongoing training programs backed by extensive franchise support are critical to launching a successful start-up. Training programs are the building blocks to learning new techniques for a more productive workforce. Ultimately, excellent franchise training and support will not only create a strong and consistent brand, but maximize revenue opportunities for the entire network. Check out the ratings and reviews of today’s top franchise opportunities as rated by actual owners.

Learn how to create more space and style in smaller rooms throughout your home. If you’re looking for space definition, you’ve come to the right place. Even the smallest rooms in your home can hold the greatest potential! A smaller space means you must carefully plan to fit your budget. Use our expert advice for these brilliant space saving solutions.
CHOOSE LIGHT PAINT. Neutral paint colors make all the difference when it comes to creating an illusion of space. If darker colors fit into your decorating plans, try painting a single accent wall to prevent shrinking spaces.
RE-ARRANGE FURNITURE. Get creative when positioning furniture! Use shorter walls to perfectly center beds or dressers for that warm, cozy vibe.
MIX IT UP. Spice it up by decorating bedding, wall décor, and pillows in super fun textures. A mix of funky patterns paired with a simple print creates the right blend of balance without overcrowding your bedroom.
USE BRIGHT LIGHTING. As you may already know, dark spaces make a room appear smaller. Investing in good lighting options will open up a room and go a long ways in making the space feel bigger and brighter.
– If you can organize your kitchen, you can organize your life. — Louis Parrish
INSTALL SHELVING. Wrap-around shelving is a brilliant fix to maximize storage space. When it comes to a lack of counter space, good shelving can provide all the storage you need to stay organized.
REFINISH COUNTERTOPS. Countertops are one of the first things you see when you enter a kitchen. Be mindful of outdated or damaged surfaces. Refinish countertops for a beautiful, new look that will draw attention to the beauty of the kitchen versus this size. The biggest advantage of countertop refinishing is a savings of 50% or more over the cost of replacement so you can achieve a high-end look without the high-end cost.
USE AN ISLAND BAR INSTEAD OF A KITCHEN TABLE: Island and bar top tables fit perfectly into a smaller kitchen, adding extra needed space. Take a look at some neat kitchen island ideas right here.
KEEP THE LIGHTS ON: We know dark colors tend to be a popular choice for kitchen walls. To keep your kitchen from looking smaller, install under-cabinet lights. Regardless of color, bright lighting is the trick to creating the ultimate illusion of space.
HANG TOWEL RACKS IN RIGHT PLACE. A clever trick to save space is to hang towel racks above the bathtub. An easy-to-reach spot that utilizes space correctly, so you can have more wall space to decorate.
GO FOR THE BIGGEST MIRROR. When choosing what type of mirror style you want, select the larger option to create more space. The larger the mirror, the greater reflection of light will illuminate to make your bathroom appear larger.
FIND THE BEST STORAGE. Use tall cabinets with multiple drawers for storing towels, toiletries and other accessories. Taller pieces draw the eye upward into often unused space. Eliminate large, bulky and unwanted furniture pieces and clutter.
REFINISH WITH NATURAL ACCENTS®. Brighten up your bathroom countertops with Natural Accents from Miracle Method, creating a beautiful transformation with a stone-like finish for vanities, countertops, showers, fiberglass shower units, and tile surrounds. A light, bright new color can transform your space.
MAKE SENSE OF YOUR COFFEE TABLES: Look for long skinny coffee tables or mirrored edged end tables that offer extra surface space for table lamps, picture frames, and decorative accents.
COLOR YOUR CEILING. Visually expand your square footage by painting the ceiling a darker shade than the color of your walls. A simple trick to create more space.
CREATE OPEN SPACE. Find furniture that fits the style and design of the room without over doing it. It may work better to use a single large sitting sofa than two smaller ones that take up more space. Check out design ideas on Pinterest. Get inspiration on what might work for your space.
LET YOUR CURTAINS HANG HIGH. Add useful space with curtains that fall to the floor. This will make the room and ceilings appear much taller.

Renovations are expensive! Rather than replacing your kitchen countertops with new, have your existing counters refinished by Miracle Method. Add value to your home by simply reviving your old, dated countertops with a beautiful, like-new finish, while avoiding the cost and mess of replacement. Whether you have outdated, ugly bathroom vanities, tile, bathtubs or showers, a fresh new Natural Accents® color will give you a high end, stone-look finish!
Any repairs you’ve been putting off will most likely stick out to potential home buyers. Even ones that are not so obvious may end up showing up during the inspection which may lead to a delayed close as well as create doubt in the buyers’ mind that the home has been properly maintained. Take the time prior to listing to ensure you’ve made necessary repairs. Check out this Article on Angie’s List for what is covered in an inspection report.
Always do a deep cleaning before placing your home on the market. Create a presentable image to illustrate a well-cared for home. The cheapest way to elevate appearance is to wash windows, dust furniture and wax floors for that extra sparkle. Mostly importantly, create a spacious view by removing excessive clutter. If you have a difficult time keeping your home tidy during the showing process, consider finding and hiring a professional cleaner from Care.com to help ensure it is always show ready.
First impressions are critical for a seller’s success, so be sure your landscaping gives off a healthy green glow. Take these necessary steps to improve your landscape; plant flowers, install stone walkways and remove weeds. A spruced up exterior with a well maintained lawn makes for an eye-catching view the moment buyers walk up. LoveYourLandscape is the official website of the National Association of Landscape Professionals (NALP). The site is designed to educate, inspire, and encourage you to live, work, and play outside and has great ideas on updating your landscaping!
An appealing entrance sets the tone for the rest of the viewing. Freshening up your entrance easily welcomes visitors into your home. Consider inexpensive renovation tips like painting your old door, installing new house numbers, or adding a decorative wreath. It’s all about making that first impression as potential buyers walk through the doorway of their potential new home for the first time.
Neutral based tones accented by lighter color choices are far more appealing and amplify space to make it appear larger. Repaint any rooms with bright distracting colors. Softening wall colors allows potential buyers to easily visualize your living space as their own. A change in color makes all the difference! Consider checking out Joanna Gaines newest paint line, Magnolia Home, for inspiration!
