As with all franchise opportunities, the advantage of starting a franchise over starting up from nothing is that you have the blueprint of a successful business. The franchisor will provide you with the systems you need to work from but you don’t know the basics such as how to hire and fire employees, you’re going to find things difficult.
Avanti franchisees also have the advantage of access to a number of experts through Avanti Networking, so whether you need HR advice, copy writing or contracts checking, we can offer you the relevant support.
Why should you brush up?
Particularly for Avanti franchisees, you’ll be expected to proactively advise your clients, therefore we anticipate that you will have base knowledge, and if not that you will train accordingly to be able to provide your clients with support and knowledge. We offer an online sharepoint where technical updates are provided and team members are encouraged to add to the knowledge base as and when information needs to be updated or amended in line with current regulations and legislation.
While we happily offer support, training and advice, franchisees are expected to bring basic business skills. If you feel an area of your expertise is is a bit shaky, take the time to brush up your skills. To fit in with your work commitments, you can access evening schools or even webinars.
