The franchising industry today has grown significantly and now represents such a broad spectrum of business concepts and market segments it has become nearly impossible to define any singular strategy, structure or method best suited for the task of franchisee support.With all this diversity it is no wonder there is no single answer for the effective delivery of franchise support.How does a growing franchise business deal with the inevitable organizational changes and development associates with an ever increasing number of franchise locations ? How can a mature established franchise organization further develop and retain top quality personnel ?
The answer to the questions above is “depends”. The advice may depend on how long the franchise organization has been in business or how many units have been sold.It may depend on how geographically wide spread the franchise locations are or just how difficult it is to learn and comprehend the business model.
