First, ask yourself: “Why NOT?”
Buying and owning a franchise has many benefits but it doesn’t necessarily mitigate your risk. According to the SBA, franchisees fail at about the same rate as other small businesses. Being in the right business for you, your emotional intelligence, ability to innovate, work ethic, grit, determination and willingness to put in time are likely better predictors of success than weather or not you buy a franchise. But there is no getting around risk.
Additionally, Work it is a new kind of business, which further increases the uncertainty.
Owning a business MAY provide more income potential and flexibility than working for someone else. But the workload is immense, especially initially. And because your family depends on the business and the business depends on you, it has to take priority. So it can involve a lot of personal sacrifice of time and special events in ways working for someone else may not.
Starting a franchise involves many upfront costs in order to open your doors. To open a Work it franchise, you will need the following:
- Liquid Capital Required: $200,000 +
- Net Worth Required: $500,000 +
- Total Investment Approximate: $860,000 – $1,200,000 +
