Buying a franchise is one way to develop a small business. This is a type of business setup in which a person or entity allows you to operate under his trademark. For example, you might purchase a popular coffee franchise and use a well-established name and menu, even though you are just starting out in business. This type of setup can give you a leg up on success, as the franchisor has already established the business name and developed proven business methods.
If you are purchasing a franchise, you will gain access to the franchisor's established operating methods in exchange for a fee. In some cases, however, the franchisee pays a percentage of his profits instead. Besides the right to use the franchisor's business name and methods, you may also be privy to his training methods and brand-building advice, benefiting from his advertising campaigns as well. Often, small companies struggle to get off the ground, but franchise opportunities make it possible to develop a small business without starting from the ground level.
