People get involved in franchsing for all kinds of reason. Some yearn to break from the stale climate of corporate life. Others feel pre-programmed to work for themselves and feel like that business ownership is their destiny. And some others yearn for something else: flexibility.
When people in franchising discuss flexibility, they mean something beyond 'work-life' balance. What they mean, according to Kiddie Academy vice president of franchise development Sue Hilger is that "the concept has expanded to mean that a franchisor is flexible in the structure of the business".
Kiddie Academy is a children's franchise that has built flexibility into their franchise system in a variety of ways. Flexibility comes in all kinds of shapes and forms: their real estate buildings can be adapted to a range of buildings - be they free-standing, two-story, office and retail. You can also be a single unit owner or owner a number of franchises. You make hours that fit in with your busy life. And finally you can come from a variety of career backgrounds before purchasing a Kiddie Academy franchise.
Remember- investing in a franchsie is one of the major decision you'll make in your life. It's better to partner with a franchise like Kiddie Academy that offers built-in flexibility. A little flexibility can go a long way.
