From Small Business To Franchising

By now, we all know that franchising means so much more than burgers and fries. Whatever the trade, entrepreneurs are learning quickly that converting their business into a franchise is far easier than it may seem.

Ernie Filice is one entrepreneur who turned to franchising, as he recently explained to Business News Daily. Filice ran a small staffing business in California for 11 years. When the recession hit, he became a Express Employment Professionals franchisee. He has never looked back.

“I don’t think I would have survived without the help of the franchise,” he said. “We’re able to operate as a small business by having the backing of a large company behind it. Now there’s a bit of accountability, which is a good thing. They like to say, ‘You’re still on your own, but you’re not by yourself.’”

That, in a nutshell, is the essence of franchising. The Business Daily News story is full of examples of businesses that become franchises. In this day and age, a bit of support can go a long way.

And even if you own a small business already, that doesn't mean you're out of the franchise equation. It's just another way that franchising can work for you.
