Critical Questions to Ask When Reviewing Franchise Brands

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?

Reviewing Franchise Brands
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?

reviewing franchise brands

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?

reviewing franchise brands

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?

reviewing franchise brands

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?

reviewing franchise brands

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.

Miracle Method of Northwest Atlanta Franchise Starting Huge Dorm Renovation

With over 35 years’ experience in the home building industry, Mike Simmons is running a Miracle Method Surface Refinishing franchise that tackles arguably the most important rooms of the home – kitchens and bathrooms.

“I’m a second-generation builder. My dad was the old-type home builder where he taught me how to do everything. People would call my dad about building a house, and we would go and frame it, do the shingles, siding, trimmed it out,” said Simmons.

Mr. Simmons was raised in Indiana, and moved to Georgia and started out remodeling homes, then moved into building houses including a number of them in Cobb, Georgia.

Since 2012, together with his wife Kay, Mike has been the proud owner of a Miracle Method franchise in Northwest Atlanta.

Atlanta Franchise

Regarding searching for a business opportunity, Simmons said, “We were looking for something different, something you could grow a company in a downturn market,” adding that a former employee had introduced him to the company during the economic downturn around 2008.

Since the beginning, the Simmons’ Marietta-based franchise has done a number of jobs across the North Metro Atlanta area, spanning from Paulding to Gwinnett counties. Outside of residential work, much of their works has been has been for commercial properties, including hospitals, schools, universities and hotels.

The Simmons’ franchise employs 11 people and up to 16 during the busiest times of the year, generating over 1 million in revenues in 2015.
Mike and Kay were the recipients of the President’s Award for 2015, which is hand selected by Miracle Method President Chuck Pistor to recognize Exemplary Service and Commitment to the network.

Tips for Organizing a Small Kitchen

Tiny houses are all the rage, but for some of us, the thought of less storage than we already have is very intimidating. Truth be told, we all have more “stuff” than we need, but it’s hard to part with things that are sentimental, or things that we don’t use often but are still useful, especially when it comes to entertaining. The challenge is, how do we maximize the space that we already have?

Top Tips for Organizing a Small Kitchen

  1. It may seem obvious (or maybe it’s not) – Do a major purge. It’s sometimes hard to let go of things, but if you’re holding onto something that you never use, donate it! If you haven’t used it for a year or longer, it’s time to let go.
  2. Get rid of any duplicates – how many spatulas, cheese graters, mixing bowls do you really need? Maybe you know a college student or a newlywed couple that is just starting out. Create a gift basket with your duplicates and give them a gift card to pick up something else they need. Your kitchen gets tidier and they get some tools they need without having to go out and invest in all new pieces.
  3. Stack plates and bowls with removable shelves. You can find inexpensive racks at the dollar store and maximize the space in your cabinets by stacking upward.
  4. Use Lazy Susans – easily access all of the items in the cabinet, rather than having to only utilize the space in the front of the cabinet that is within reach. A lazy Susan will allow you to store more and make use of all of the space in the cabinet.
  5. Use small bins to corral small, lose items like cookie cutters, chip clips, measuring cups and measuring spoons.
  6. Make use of vertical space with slide-out storage towers to store items in unused spaces like between your washer and dryer.
  7. Use office file organizers to store Tupperware lids and pots and pans vertically.
  8. Apply a rack to the wall for your spoons and spatulas to save drawer space.
  9. Use a hanging closet organizer on the pantry door to store snacks, rice packets, baking and sauce mixes to save shelf space.
  10. Install racks on the inside of cabinets to store spices, aluminum foil, olive oil, vinegar, etc.
