We all know how unpredictable business can be, even at the best of times. Nevertheless, nobody could have anticipated the current situation when we welcomed in 2020 and entered the new decade. Business, as we know it, has changed – but that doesn’t necessarily mean that it has to stop. Whilst we understand that some businesses have had no other option but to cease operating, others have been able to adapt to the current climate in order to help their customers, and even create new customers in the process.
Here at Franchise Resales, we have been fortunate to continue trading with some changes being made to the way we work, in order to adhere to government guidelines and maintain safety for our team and customers. A majority of our team already work remotely; our team are based around the United Kingdom – from Scotland down to Kent. Our processes ordinarily involve a large number of online services, including business evaluations for new businesses coming to the market. Telephone conversations with prospective buyers, franchisees, and banks, to name a few – are standard practice here at Franchise Resales; none of this has changed for us.
However, we would usually arrange face to face meetings for prospective buyers with franchisors and franchisees – we have now replaced these meetings with video or telephone calls. What is interesting is that we are discovering that these online meetings are productive and successful.
We know that buying a franchise resale is a ‘low risk’ way to start and run your own business, and now, more than ever, is that statement true.
If you are considering buying a business, a franchise resale could be the perfect choice for you right now. The businesses that we have on the market provide the perfect foundation for you to begin the journey to becoming your own boss. Each one has an established and loyal customer base, regular turnover, as well as a stable reputation.
It takes time to buy a franchise and time is something that many us have on our hands right now. Why not use that time to explore some of the franchise resales that are on offer right now.
We can begin the process with you and help you to find the perfect business for you. We will guide you through the business, arrange an online meeting with the franchisor, introduce you to the franchisee, and point you in the right direction when it comes to funding and creating a business plan.
We hope to hear from you soon, and stay safe!
