Planning to purchase a franchise involves many steps — and a lot of time and effort. But, if you’re organized, and you’ve taken the time to learn all you can about franchising, you’ll be able to speed up the process and AEON can help.
The Usual Franchise Purchasing Steps:
The Search – Typically, you’ll look into several different franchise opportunities until you narrow it down to a few franchises. This step should take the most amount of time, because you want to be sure the franchise you choose is a perfect fit for you.
Research – After you contact a franchisor you want to be sure you do your research. This step involves reading the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and calling franchisees so you can get any questioned answered, as well as conducting other basic market research.
At AEON we invite all interested candidates to visit our headquarters for a “Discovery Day.” This is a great chance to meet with the AEON team face-to-face, and ask questions in person.
Financing – Most franchisee’s will finance all or a portion of their upfront investment in a franchise. One popular way to finance a franchise is with an SBA loan.
The Big Decision – The last step in the franchise purchasing process is your decision. Before you say “yes” or “no”, consider the research you’ve already done, your budget, and the work that comes with owning a franchise.
These steps are commonplace with anyone looking to open a franchise. But after the traditional sales process is where no other franchise opportunity can compete with AEON.
So… how long until you “Open Your Doors”?
The franchise purchasing process — from the search to the purchase — can take three to four months. When buying any typical franchise, it will take another two to six months before you open your doors to customers if you’re lucky.
However, if you purchase a typical home-based franchise opportunity, you should be able to open for business approximately two months after you sign your franchise contract. Two months can be a long time when you’re transitioning to owning your own franchise.
When it comes to opening your doors this is where AEON stands alone from all other franchises. We can get you up and running in fewer than 2 weeks. Utilizing AEON’S 40+ Years of experience, along with our advanced training program, we will empower you with the strategies, techniques, and knowledge to sign clients and start earning residual income.
