Unveiling the Perfect Franchise Family!
One of the biggest headlines in all newspapers and magazines across the country – not to mention the “Money Talk” that covers television shows and the mighty Web – is the world of franchising. The beauty of franchising is taking center stage, unveiling to all who listen that after a few bleak economic years, franchises can look forward to growth in 2012. That is great news for the beleaguered economy, given the franchise industry’s contribution to hiring as well as profits.
Expecting to add over one hundred and fifty thousand jobs in the franchising ‘world’ next year, the total number of jobs in the industry could reach over eight million (International Franchise Association reports). The number of franchise businesses will increase by 1.9%, or 13,928 establishments, and the sales of franchise businesses will grow by 5%, or $37 billion, for a total financial output of $782 billion.
As with anything, this growth is expected to be more robust in certain areas than others. And, as we spoke about in a previous article, massage, salons – the personal services group – will be bringing in the most cash to the economy.
Two weeks ago we began speaking about a truly amazing opportunity. MassageLuXe and FaceLuXe are the names you’re hearing the most about right now, and the response has been unbelievable. A company that was created on the basis of supplying elegance and luxury to their clientele, the ‘LuXe’ partners have grown into the absolute best company for franchisees.
Many readers have been asking about Todd Beckman, the man behind MassageLuXe and FaceLuXe, because his idea was certainly one of the best, considering that he now owns one of the fastest-growing franchises in the marketplace. From providing much-needed services to clients through national franchise area developers and single unit franchises, this company is driven by a membership revenue model that assures a significantly higher level of consistency to other spa revenues and profit on a year-round basis. So, no, it is not a surprise that readers want to know every facet of this incredible business.
As we went over exclusive versus non-exclusive territories last week, we brought forth the basic information on what the prospective franchisee should look for. Seeking out franchises that offer protected and exclusive territory rights within a designated geographic area is the first step. In fact, a study performed by the Institute for Operations Research and the Management Sciences shows that 91 percent of successful franchises have “defined” territories. Additionally, the study shows that new franchise chains that adopt exclusive territories are more likely to survive over time than chains that do not.
The world of MassageLuXe and FaceLuXe can actually go one step further than all this ‘hype’ by providing peace: A secure career with a company that offers a proven business model in an industry that is growing larger by the minute.
Now, whether you are a first time franchisee or an experienced business owner, the MassageLuXe franchise system empowers you to get more out of what you want from your business and your life. One of the greatest – and most unique – attributes of the ‘LuXe’ world is their ‘5-Step Discovery Process,’ that helps guide you through every step by allowing YOU to ask the right questions to help you learn as much as possible about this stellar company.
On the MassageLuXe site there are actual steps that can be seen by any prospective franchisee. And, as you go through the steps, all the information necessary to decide whether a MassageLuXe franchise meets your goals and expectations for the future is offered.
When you begin your research into the ‘LuXe’ family, you will be thrilled with the information exchange that is available. This includes a preliminary qualification report and a brief pre-screening interview where YOU have the opportunity to have your questions answered.
Then comes the Franchise Review. Through a series of scheduled telephone conferences, correspondence exchanges and presentations with one of MassageLuXe franchise development team members, YOU have the opportunity to learn about the MassageLuXe business model. You will also have the opportunity to review their Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDD) and gain an understanding of the site selection and spa construction process.
Validation is given. This is one more reason that MassageLuXe and FaceLuXe prove right off the bat that they are the company you want to be a part of. You will be given direct access to existing franchisees so you can speak with them about any issues, concerns or questions you may have. And on top of that, you have the opportunity to visit their corporate headquarters and observe how their programs and business systems operate. At this time, you will also meet, interview and be interviewed by corporate executives and other team members responsible for supporting franchisees and their businesses. You will preview the Training, Operations, Vendor Selection and Site Development Manuals. Finally, you will discuss financing options available and preparation of the business plan and lender package.
Many people who are longing to become a franchisee and are looking for that perfect model to begin making money, have very specific questions. They need to know and understand territories and boundaries. They need to know if the boundaries are precise and clearly defined. And whether the franchisee or the franchisor have the right to renegotiate territory boundaries. They need to know things such as any minimum sales quotas or conditions imposed on franchisees in order for them to retain territorial rights. As well as whether or not the franchisor or franchisee establish another franchise within the geographical area, or relocate the franchise. What are the strengths and weaknesses of offered franchise areas? Are there other competitors in the franchise territory? How close in proximity are they, and what competition is projected in five or 10 years time?
These are questions that must be asked, and with MassageLuXe you are already given the answers, while also being provided with all information and data that is necessary for you to make the right decision.
It all comes down to one thing. If you are interested in becoming a franchisee with a successful company, then MassageLuXe and FaceLuXe are right for you. If you want to work with people who have that unique model that is proven to work in the fastest growing industry out there – MassageLuXe and FaceLuXe are the only avenues to search.
