How does Exit Planning help your franchisees and you?

It’s an exciting time when your franchisees are getting their new business off the ground. Their time and effort is spent making all of the urgent decisions. Oftentimes an Exit Strategy is the furthest thing from their minds. But it’s at the point that they are buying their franchise that they should be thinking about their Exit Plan and it should be firmly embedded into their business plan.

When your franchisees know exactly what they want to achieve right from the very start of their franchise journey, they increase the likelihood of walking away with a return on their investment. As well as showing your other franchisees and prospective franchisees just how lucrative a franchise in your network can be.

Regardless of your franchisees reasons for selling their franchise, be it retirement, handing the business down to the next generation or selling to make a profit, a plan is needed. The more robust the plan, the better the chances of succeeding.

Of course, even the best-laid plans don’t always go smoothly. In the event of a franchisee needing to sell urgently, a franchisee who has thought about this at an early stage will no doubt have an easier time trying to sell their business than one who has no plan.

We know there may be changes along the way, but we also know that a franchisee with an Exit Strategy is likely to achieve a better price for their business than one who is not prepared.
