Things to consider

There are so many things to consider in investing your money to franchising. You have to remember the 4p's of marketing for that matter (product, price, place and promotion) if you think they are all good in that then why not try it but in the event that you feel there's no clear market for it then you have to think twice. Anyways, people who are wanting to try franchising have to be ready with the risks but don't worry because any kind of business has risks so you just have to be very careful all the time.

abacus math

I have heard about a brand by name math-n-abacus. One of my cousin is having their franchisee. they seems to be quality conscious. You can try out there.

Entrepreneur

Whenever I hear these questions, my first response is to point to some of the undifferentiated concepts that have achieved high levels of success in the marketplace. “What about janitorial services—why have they been so successful?” Then I go through the list. Maid services. Lawn care. Carpet cleaning. Temporary and permanent placement firms. And of course, the list goes on and on. testking 642-355 The fact of the matter is, a significant number of franchise companies are in industries in which their products or services are not readily differentiated. What these questioning entrepreneurs fail to understand is that, as entrepreneurs, they are the one group on earth that is perhaps the least suited to understand the mindset of the prospective franchisee. testking HP0-J23 The typical entrepreneur is, at least by my definition, someone who never saw a rule he or she did not want to break. And, in many respects, the entrepreneur is often the last person you would want to be a franchisee. The best franchisees are not the rule-breakers. And, in fact, the truly entrepreneurial are often the least inclined to buy a franchise.

The best franchisees are motivated adopters—people willing to accept some level of risk, but people who, nonetheless, are willing to follow the rules established by their franchisor.
testking 640-822 But if the franchisee isn’t buying your “secret recipe,” what exactly are they buying?

Ultimately, what the franchise prospect is buying is a combination of two things: a strong value proposition plus a unique market position.

Re: Have you heard of this franchise?

360clean is different from any other cleaning franchise in the franchise industry. First, they are very stringent in who they invite to be a franchise owner. Secondly, 360clean focuses on commercial offices but specializes in healthcare facilities. Additionally, 360clean has alliances with national medical associations.

If you need to buy a franchise in order to learn how to clean halls and toilets, then this is for you. If you are smarter than your average 3rd grader, run like hell.

Yes I a have heard of it. In reviewing it, it is very easy to see what the idiot, uh I mean victim, no I mean prospective franchisee, yeah that is the term, will do for the con...I mean shyster, no, what is that word, ah I got it now, franchisor but I fail to see the overall benefit to the victim, uh I mean franchisee.

Meineke / Econo Lube co-brand

Hello all. I am a prospective "zee" and am seriously looking at a Meineke / Econo Lube co-brand opportunity that is an existing corporate owned location.

I am doing my due diligence and it's been tough to figure out if this is a good opportunity or not.

Frankly, from what I've been reading on this site and others, franchising in general is a risky proposition.

Of the "zors" I've looked at, the Meineke / Econo Lube co-brand looks pretty good. The location has excellent viewable signage on a high-traffic thoroughfare and the current car counts I was shown look pretty strong (averaging low of 90 to high of 150's per week for the first four months of 2008, with average right around 118 per week).

Anyways, I could give out a million more details of why I like it so far, but would like to ask these questions to all out there in franchise land:

Is the Meineke / Econo Lube co-brand opportunity a good one? Can you make money with this franchise? Meineke has gotten the stamp of approval from the AAFD, does this mean anything? Is the co-brand a good idea or should one stick with Meineke only, if even that? Is a $7,700 lease including cams per month for a 6 bay shop too much? Is Meineke a strong brand? In your opinion will this type of franchise weather a bad economy for a couple of years?

Please support your opinions rather than just saying it's good or bad.

Thanks!

The AAFD Fair Franchising Seal and Meineke

The AAFD Fair Franchising Seal was awarded to Meineke, largely based on the fairness of the Franchise and Trademark Agreement.  This agreement differs substantially from the FTA being offered to Meineke/Econolube co-brands.  If you decide to purchase, make sure that you have a franchise attorney review both so that you make the proper choice on whether to co-brand, assuming they are giving you an option. 

Meineke does have very strong brand awareness (92%).  It is impossible to comment on the lease without knowing more about the specific location.  As a 23 year veteran of the Meineke system and the President of the Meineke Dealers Association, I would be willing to assist you as you continue your due diligence.  If you will simply register on this site, you can send me a private message with your email address and I will respond. 

Re:Meineke / Econo Lube co-brand

Please support questions with factual basis!

Is the location profitable?

What do the P&L statements say?

What is the cash flow adjusted for royalties and ad fund?

What is the price?

Then maybe people on the board can help. 

The Truth Shall Set You Free!

TIF

RE: RE: Meineke co-brand opportunity?

That's part of the problem. I can't seem to get the P&L, Balance Sheet, Cash Flow info for the corporate owned location I'm looking at.

Here's what I've been able to find out so far (in general):

From my discussions with the franchise rep, it sounds like this location is either barely profitable or not profitable, but he believes there are reasons for that and that a dedicated zee can make it profitable.

His reasoning:

Current car counts are healthy, but total ticket price is too low and a zee will be able to follow the system and increase the average ticket to a better level.

Utilities are too high. A zee will be able to monitor the lights and heat better and cut down this expense a lot.

Labor and COGS is too high. A zee will be able to make the COGS more favorable and make the labor more efficient. Also that current employees are paid higher than the area's average because they are more autonomous due to the corporate situation and that a zee would provide leadership and could pay less on labor.

Also, corporate is buying some items and services that were higher in price, but more convenient, and that a zee could tighten this up too, which would add to the bottom line.

Royalties and ad fund run 13 percent, broken down as 4.5 percent local advertising, 3.5 percent to George Foreman (LOL) national advertising, and 5 percent royalties.

Lease with cams is $7,700 per month.

Price is $100,000 and includes 1st and last, $7K in inventory, $14K in equipment.

Are zors obligated to release P&L, balance sheet, cash flow info on corporate owned stores they are selling? The info would be extremely helpful, but my rep has given me the impression (at least that's my interpretation) that he can't give that info.

So, what does everyone think? Is the Meineke / Econo Lube co-brand opportunity a good one? Are they obligated to give me specific financial info about the location? Any feedback?

Availability of financial statements

Guest writes: "Are zors obligated to release P&L, balance sheet, cash flow info on corporate owned stores they are selling? The info would be extremely helpful, but my rep has given me the impression (at least that's my interpretation) that he can't give that info".

There should be no impression or interpretation, either he has that information to provide or he doesn't.  

Remember that Meineke only recently acquired the Econolube franchise, and although this center may now be in corporate hands, that might only be a recent development.  If this location was individually owned and operated until recently, past P&L's, balance sheets, and cash flow statements might not be readily available. 

Also, given the asking price, it is clear that this opportunity is not one that is based on past performance, but on future potential.  If the $100,000 includes first and last, inventory and equipment valued at $21,000, (which seems low for a six bay facility), and the initial franchise fee, then less than $35,000 is left, not even accounting for furniture and fixtures.

RE: RE: RE: Meineke co-brand opportunity?

Thank you for filling the gaps!

Yes the franchisor can provide operating statements for a going concern company location and for a company representative to say otherwise would be disengenuous to say the least. Now maybe the salesperson is ill-informed but I doubt it.

Bottom line is no P&ls then no deal, no more discussion, no negotiation, nada!

Resources Available To Find The Best Franchise Fit

What resources are there to help me select which franchise network is the best fit?

Halloween Express

Anyone know anything about HalloweenExpress as a franchise concept? Look at the spike in traffic (below) that they get around a two month period. They become one of the most travelled franchise websites during that period. What a way to set up shop -- have expenses for two months right during a huge boom in interest.

After Halloween, shut down the shop and go do something else until next year. Meanwhile, keep costs at a minimal; ideally, keep it at nothing.

Ethnic Food Hot??

There's a press release that says that Mexican food and ethnic food is seeing high growth right now. Is this true or just PR? Has the time for ethnic food franchises arrived?

Anyone have any figures on this?

SMALL ETHNIC RESTAURANTS

We have dozens of those here in Houston - one from each place whence came our immigrants - village by village almost.

My next door neighbor owns one - Chinese. Nothing on the menu (which I can't read anyway) is served in what Americans usually think of as a Chinese restaurant. General Tso never ate General Tso's Chicken, if you catch my drift. 

No one in the restaurant ever speaks English, though I suspect many are able to.

They are popular with their target clientele because they have not Americanized the food. It is just as it was in the old country. Much of what is on the menu would make your average American diner wretch from being told what was in it or fom actually seeing what's in the dish - for those things that are even recognizeable - most of it is chopped rather small. Try wine pairing stewed pig's stomach. The animal genitalia dishes are easier to wine pair.

A Falastinian neighbor is about to open your customary Middle East rotisserie. His sign is in Arabic. His menu is in Arabic. It will be the local Falastinian hangout, I am certain. I doubt the Poulet Hamas (spicy) and the Poulet Fatah (Milder) will be that popular elsewhere in town, certainly not a few blocks away by the new Or Ami Synagogue. There are Nigerian and Ethiopean restaurants in town, but it is hard to imagine the word "cuisine" being associated with a menu from a country where everyone is starving and dropping from hommoragic fever - Chez Ebola? There too the body parts in the ragout may not have broad appeal in a country where obesity is the disease du jour. What Houstonians throw up is more appealing than what is served in those restaurants. A friend of mine who is more adventurous than I wretched for almost a week from the goat gland stew.

But, I am certain that it will all soon be offered as the ticket to becoming your own successful boss in some franchise incarnation. After all, though they may be dying faster than they can reproduce, there are so many millions of Africans who regularly spend $ 7,000,000,000 for this, that and the other thing and represent a "niche" market into which you may be admitted to the ground floor by someone who doesn't sell franchises but awards them.

Vedic Math??

I just read this in our "off the wire" section of trade journal news feeds. The following thre me for a loop.

"Math Monkey™, a Miami-based supplemental education company that teaches Vedic math... is now opening franchises in South Florida and beyond."

Vedic Math?? What's that? Is that math that includes zeroes? (The concept of zero was invented in India. Sounds like some Hindu Maharastra voodoo thing. But in googling, I found this out.

"Vedic Mathematics" is the name given to the ancient system of mathematics, or, to be precise, a unique technique of calculations based on simple rules and principles, with which any mathematical problem — be it arithmetic, algebra, geometry or trigonometry — can be solved, hold your breath, orally!

Never heard of this thing before. I was raised in a family in which we thought the abacus was supreme. Interesting concept. I can compute large numbers and complex problems without writing it down.

If you want to find the square of 45, you can employ the Ekadhikena Purvena sutra ("By one more than the one before"). The rule says since the first digit is 4 and the second one is 5, you will first have to multiply 4 (4 +1), that is 4 X 5, which is equal to 20 and then multiply 5 with 5, which is 25. Viola! The answer is 2025. Now, you can employ this method to multiply all numbers ending with 5.

Liberty Tax Services

Mr MauMau and experts,

I'm a prospective buyer of a Liberty Tax Services franchise. They only give out their UFOCs at their seminars in Virgina Beach (at least my contact person tells me that's where & when they will give me mine). I don't see on your website (or Jackson-Hewitt either). And, I cannot find it on Cal-Easi. I've searched under "Liberty," "Tax," "Liberty Tax," etc, with the boxes checked for "contains" and "ignor punctuation," but cannot find what I'm looking for. I know Liberty Tax is in CA. Can you guide me?

Available Resources for the Best Franchise Fit

Check out Blue MauMau's Web Resources, Who's looking Out for You? There are a number of associations and organizations that can give you insight. However, you also have:

  • Franchise brokers
  • Franchiser Advertising Directories
  • Profile Assessments

And more. Franchise brokers may give you a profile assessment to determine your interests and aptitudes. They presumably would then guide you to the franchisor that they represent in which they feel there is the best fit. However, that may mean that if you have more money available that they might steer you to a more weighty investment so that they receive more money from the franchisor.

Low Traffic Franchise

I have great location with 15,000 car count in small town.

any food franchise that would fit this? 

Thanks,

How to Find UFOCs

  1. Do whois search on their website.
  2. You will see that the registrant of the Liberty Tax website is JTH Inc.
  3. Do a search on Caleasi for "JTH" and you will get the Liberty Tax  UFOC.

Calling Franchise Gurus

How do you tackle this problem of a small town with a street that only has traffic of 15,000 cars per day? It seems that franchises with low fixed costs are the way to go. If fixed costs are high, like an expensive Burger King, you won't have enough traffic to feed the beast. So maybe you look at low start-up cost franchises.

Here's a list of only food businesses with start-up costs under $20,000 from FranchiseGator's Low Cost Franchise Site.

  • Wine Lovers
  • Candy Bouquet
  • Coffee Heaven
  • Eccellente Gourmet Coffee
  • Java Dave's Coffee
  • Jugo Juice

It looks like this list is pretty heavily weighed down with Coffee Houses.  That's interesting considering how the donut shops are also leaning more to coffee.

So how do you brokers and consultants handle franchise recommendations for small town America?

 Thank you for your help everyone.

The Plot Thickens ---What is going on in Maryland?

It appears that Retrofitness offered a Rescission in Maryland just recently, in July, for violations of Maryland State Law and a Consent Order was published and can be read on Google. The injured franchisee did not have to forfeit her rights under the Maryland law to a civil action. In fact the Rescission Offer states specifically and clearly that she will retain her rights to a civil suit.

What is going on? Why were D&R of Coffee Beanery offered different terms in their Rescission Offer from CB that was negotiated by the State of Maryland with DLA Piper representing CB?

What did CB/DLA Piper bring to the table in Maryland? Why was this "special" rescission negotiated, that so mislead Deborah and Richard because it indicated that they would have to forfeit their rights to a civil action if they accepted the Rescission.

Why did Dale Cantone then personally urge them to arbitrate and why in arbitration were they destroyed?

Something is definitely wrong with this picture.

SMALL TOWN AMERICA

Small town America is not the place to invest in any franchised business unless it is at an exit on a busy Interstste highway where there are lots of gas stations, and the site is right there at the freeway exit and is selling sandwiches, burgers, fries and cold beer..

A wine store in a small town is my idea of suicide. A wine store in any city unless you really have a lot of experience in the wine business (in which case you don't need a franchise) is another way to leave this world broke. These other so called low entry cost franchises are similarly low quality/lacking durability deals. If you're selling something called Jugo Juice in small town Texas, somebody's gonna think you're an Al Quaeda cell.

Does Candy Bouquet specialize in Moon Pies? 

Richard Solomon
www.FranchiseRemedies.com

Merry Land ?

You are right I have read all of the Consent Orders issued by Maryland and recison is offered plus the right of private action

Why is Cantone allowing CB to sell to Maryland residents?

Has no shame?

This could be the real Cantone letting everyone know just how little the franchise laws mean to anyone except the zees.

Dale Cantone set R&D up. Now that I think about, wasn't this done in an election year?

The Attorney General who had been in Maryland for over 20 years retired. Maybe someone thought they may need a job soon?

Retrofitness misinformation from their website below...

The primary advantage of owning a franchise is that you are in business for yourself but not by yourself.

According to recent studies on franchises...

According to the United States Department of Commerce, 90% of franchise businesses are still operating after 10 years, while 82% of independent businesses have failed.

38% of independent businesses fail in the first year while less than 5% of franchised businesses fail in the first year.

Total franchise sales exceed $1 trillion.
Franchises represent 40% of all sales in the United States, while representing only 8% of all businesses.

94% of franchise owners consider themselves successful.

75% of franchise owners would repeat their franchise again while only 39% of Americans would repeat their jobs or businesses.

Retro Fitness® offers you the opportunity to be your own boss, and build your own successful business based on your hard work. Your success is enhanced as well by the successes of other franchisees without any extra effort from you.

Dale curries favor with voters by siding with Coffee Beanery?

Yes this makes great sense? Dale would purposely side with Coffee Beanery a Michigan based company so he gain votes from Marylanders? Are you out of your mind? Maryland is liberal democrat tax and spend state.

Wow you can really connect them dots!

UNTRUE SUCCESS PERCENTAGES

Those statistics are and always were incorrect. The Dept of Commerce "survey" was completely incompetent and based upon inadequate response. Subsequent research by respected business school faculty reveal that there is no material difference in the success/failure rate between franchised and independent small business start ups.

Yes! all the false info about franchising spread to the Public

In a country where we research almost everything and there are government grants to study the sex life of the turtle, etc. it is odd that there is no reliable government research concerning franchising where franchiSEE success or failure is part of the research. I believe that there is no reliable government or academic research concerning franchiSEE failure because of the cooperation in the status quo to obscure and hide the failure rate of first -generation franchisees from new first generation franchisees who build new units for the franchisors.

Apparently, as long as the franchisors are compliant with UFOC's, it doesn't matter to the State how high the failure rate of the original first-generation franchisees may be. The failure rate of first-generation franchisees is ignored under the law.

When the government talks about the success of franchising, they are talking about the success of franchisors who can stand disproportionately on the backs of failed franchisees who made it through the first two, three, four, years attempting to break even, and then failed. As long as the franchisors can control the assets and acquire the businesses in failure for third parties who take over the business this is a success and NOT a failure for the franchisor. Managed churning of first-generation franchisees increases the visibility of Networks and it is on the basis of the visibility that new franchises are sold. Failed franchisees are generaly invisible and only a small proportion make it to the courts.

We see that blogger "Truth in Franchising" has integrity. He says they are compliant and that they expect franchisees to do their due diligence and he doesn't deny that he sells franchises with very high failure rates.

Lies by Retrofitness

Misinformation on the Internet from Franchisors is rampant but yet the FTC does nothing because apparently this is not advertising.

The FTC is responsible for advertising on the Internet but we see this is just another blank check given to franchisors and potential franchisees will be taken in, thinking that franchisors can't lie on the Internet.

How Much Does Cantone Cost?

I googled the site for Md.

Here is what I found:
7/23 Guard A Kid recision plus right of private action

5/30 System 4 LLC recision plus right of private action

5/14 Wheel Repair Solutions recision and right of private action

2/23 Our Town America recision and right of private action

R&D were telling the truth
They are the only ones who had to waive the right of private action

Why?

Why is Cantone allowing CB to prey on Maryland people?

Maybe Janet Sparks can investigate and ask why R&D were betrayed?

In light of the Orders all haveing the right of private action plus recision , Dale should answer for leading R&D to bankruptcy.

What did it cost for this sanction to work against R&R and not CB?

Gee I also did not say I don't beat my wife...

It was written: I believe that there is no reliable government or academic research concerning franchiSEE failure because of the cooperation in the status quo to obscure and hide the failure rate of first -generation franchisees from new first generation franchisees who build new units for the franchisors.

My reply: Oh I don't know about the reason why, but here is something that might interest you.

We now turn our attention to the extent of entry and exit by both franchisors and franchisees. There is a perception that opportunities for franchisors and franchisees are burgeoning. There is some truth to this as many new firms get involved in franchising each year. But there is also a perception that franchising is safe, especially for franchisees as compared to independent business start-ups. The data we present below show that, in reality, substantial business risks exist for individuals who choose to invest in a franchise. In fact, franchising is no safer on average than independent business ownership, and in some cases is actually more risky. . . . We conclude that the data contradict the notion that investing in a franchised business is a risk-free or very low-risk endeavor. - The Economics of Franchising by Roger D.

Thank God for Google who may save our Democracy

The sunshine laws didn't work but maybe Google, the people's library, will help us to preserve our democracy for our children and grsndchildren.

It will not be possible for government to operate under cover of darkness and we may be able to make our elected officials accountable to the people. Ordinary people can now research on the Internet and watch what government is doing. A few years ago, there was a project that was attempted by an MIT graduate student who wanted to track the comings and goings of public officials to make government more accountable but I think it failed.

Dale Cantone and the State of Maryland owe D&R an explanation and they should rescind the rescission and start all over again. Will they use their sovereign immunity and the great power of government to silence Deborah and Richard, who are rendered powerless in bankruptcy. Will their attorney continue to represent them if they have no money to pay him?

Were Deborah and Richard set up? Sure looks like it.
