Triton Business Group, Inc. http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com Franchise Financing | Franchise Funding Thu, 24 May 2018 20:29:24 +0000 en hourly 1 http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/wp-content/uploads/2016/06/cropped-TRITON-LOGO-32x32.jpg Triton Business Group, Inc. http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com 32 32 Triton’s Featured Franchise – Camp Bow Wow http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/franchising/tritons-featured-franchise-camp-bow-wow/ http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/franchising/tritons-featured-franchise-camp-bow-wow/#respond Fri, 18 May 2018 16:03:38 +0000 http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/?p=1359 How would you like to turn your love for dogs into an exciting business that you can look forward to everyday? There is something special about the bond between a companion animal and their parents. And if you are one of those people who just can’t get enough of all the cute, little furry friends, then this franchise opportunity might be just what you are looking for. The Camp Bow Wow franchise gives you the chance to transform that passion for those furry friends into a successful, profitable and satisfying business.

The largest pet care franchise in North America has plenty of room to grow and they are looking for people like you to join! With nearly 140-unit franchise systems, Camp Bow Wow has continued to enjoy strong year-over-year growth in the pet care services industry – a $69 billion industry, according to thAmerican Pet Products Association (APPA). Individually, the boarding and grooming segment occupied by Camp Bow Wow accounts for almost $7 billion of that industry.

Did you know that nearly half of American households have dogs? That is an estimated 90 million dogs and growing, according to the APPA. That statistic alone should really get you excited about this franchise opportunity. One of the key factors you should look for when it comes to deciding which franchise you should invest is the overall future of the industry. Is it growing? Is it profitable? Will this industry be in demand for the foreseeable future?

Camp Bow Wow gives companion animal parents a more desirable option when it comes to boarding their dogs while they are away on vacation or while traveling for business. As a franchise owner, you will get to spend your time doing what you love best – being around those cute, furry friends and making their experience the best it can be.

The majority of the franchise’s revenue is made up of day care and boarding. But in addition to this, Camp Bow Wow franchises also offer pet grooming, training and in-home pet care, which allows franchise owners to generate additional income. This also helps franchise owners develop a deeper relationship with their customers, which in the long run turns into increased profits.

Camp Bow Wow offers all-inclusive startup costs which ranges from $783,500 to $1,485,000. On average, a typical owner will invest $150,000 to $200,000, including the franchise fee, which can be financed by a franchise financing firm such as Triton.

For Entrepreneurs looking for a franchise opportunity in the pet care industry, Camp Bow Wow is one of the best franchises that you can purchase as well as make the type of personal and professional impact that you expect from your franchise purchase.

If you are interested in this particular franchise or any other franchise opportunity, you can hire Triton to conduct due diligence to ensure that you choose the best franchise for you and your family. Visit http://tritonfranchise.com/franchise-research/ to learn more.

Your bed seems to get even more comfortable when your alarm starts blaring early Monday morning. Do you often wish that you could land the perfect opportunity that would allow you to work from home or make money while traveling? Although having a Home Business still carries tasks and responsibilities that must be completed on time – the one major thing it does is allow you to have is an extensive amount of freedom while still earning a significant income.

The unfortunate thing about working for someone else is that your time belongs to them and they determine what happens to you and your family financially. Although being your own boss comes with a lot of work and challenges, you are in control of your destiny! That feeling of not having to worry about how boss’ mood today or if your job will be cut in upcoming layoffs will change your outlook on life. When you are your own the boss, you will look forward to Monday mornings and to what the day will bring for you and your business. Nothing compares to starting your day knowing that the day belongs to you!

What is a Franchise Consultant?

Franchise Consultant is a term commonly used to refer to someone who works with potential franchisees who want to purchase a new franchise. Additionally, they also help current franchisors expand their business. So, a franchise consultant usually works with individuals at both ends of the franchise business.

Franchise Consulting is a fulfilling, Home Business opportunity that will help you reach your goals, both personally and professional. You will soon come to realize that it will also put you in a position to provide a service to others who are looking to gain their financial freedom and build a stable future.

Typically, a Franchise Consultant will work with a company that trains them on the ins-and-outs of how to operate a Franchise Consulting business. Most individuals get started with little to no experience; after training, they then set up their business. Triton has years of experience training and working with Franchise Consultants assisting them and providing the long-term support they require to grow their business fast.

Becoming a Franchise Consultant is a great option for entrepreneurs who are interested in and want to become a part of the Franchise Industry. It’s also the perfect Home Business opportunity for those who prefer career options that allow them to work from home.

Why Due Diligence is So Important http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/purchasing-a-franchise/why-due-diligence-is-so-important/ http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/purchasing-a-franchise/why-due-diligence-is-so-important/#respond Fri, 13 Apr 2018 15:22:55 +0000 http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/?p=1339 If you are going to purchase a Franchise and invest thousands of dollars as well as your time and energy, you need to first do your Due Diligence! When it comes to becoming a business owner, there is possible risk involved at almost every turn on the path to success. One of your most important jobs as a prospective franchise owner is to mitigate as many of these risks as possible. Focusing only on how successful the franchise has been historically is not always the best way to properly evaluate if that franchise is the right one for you long-term. Although becoming a franchise owner does offer you some ease, it still does not come without some risks that you need to know before making your franchise investment. Since you are investing both time and money in franchise ownership, there is no way to stress how extremely important it is for you to properly conduct your own due diligence or hire a firm to do research on the franchise you want to purchase. One thing that I can guarantee you is the risk of you not doing so can cost you thousands of dollars, years of legal issues and being stuck with a bad franchise.

What Is Due Diligence?

By definition, due diligence is the reasonable steps taken by someone (you) to satisfy a legal requirement, especially when it comes to buying or selling something. Or, it can also be defined as the reasonable care that you exercise to avoid harm to your person or your property – which more applies to the due diligence done in investing in a franchise. In other words, it is you researching all aspects of a franchise to ensure that it is a good fit.

Doing your due diligence involves thoroughly researching the franchise opportunity you want to purchase. It is important that you know not only exactly how much the franchise is going to cost, but what these costs are going toward, what will be expected of you and what to expect in the future. Unfortunately, sometimes doing research on your own is not enough. That is where the assistance of Triton can make a huge difference to the final outcome of your franchise selection.

Having the assistance of a firm like Triton when it comes to due diligence helps ensure you will have a better experience and make a better decision. Triton can assist you with the necessary research needed to keep your investment safe. We have the ability to provide you with the facts and information needed to help you make the right decision. And then, you will have the opportunity to sit back and watch that opportunity pay off.

A bad franchise purchase could lead you to financial hardship. And, sadly, these bad franchise opportunities aren’t always obvious to franchise buyers. While it might seem like a great idea at first, there could be an incredibly low return on your investment (for context, see the Forbes Worst Franchise List; scroll to the middle of the page on the Forbes Worst Franchise list to see the listed franchises).

Just think about it for a moment – would you ever purchase a car without looking into the Kelly Blue Book and all the different facts about the car? Would you buy a used car and just take the person’s word that it had never been involved in a wreck? The chances are you answered “no” to that.

Why Is Due Diligence Important?

Instead of losing money on a bad franchise purchase and finding yourself in a financial rut, you can experience the true pleasure of becoming a franchise owner.

As a successful franchise owner, you will have the opportunity to experience financial freedom and prepare yourself for a happy retirement. And, the options don’t just stop there. As a franchise owner, you could choose to own multiple franchises, move around with your franchise as you open one in a new area, or you could just hold onto your one franchise and watch it grow for years and years to come. The opportunities are endless!

A franchise is a great way to become a business owner without the hassle of drafting the idea yourself and sorting out all the logistics. When you purchase a franchise, you are purchasing the ease of using the franchisor’s established brand, business name, and even having support from the franchisor to ensure you have everything you need to succeed in the franchise industry.

Conclusion

Remember, a franchise decision that is not based on considerable due diligence can leave you in a disastrous financial situation. Don’t exempt yourself from the due diligence process and end up in a very unfortunate position. Instead, do your due diligence, and best yet, enlist the help of professionals such as Triton to help you become a successful and profitable franchise owner.

Is Quiznos a Good Franchise Investment? http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/franchising/is-quiznos-a-good-franchise-investment/ http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/franchising/is-quiznos-a-good-franchise-investment/#respond Tue, 03 Apr 2018 18:35:57 +0000 http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/?p=1313 Like any business opportunity, with franchises there are many franchise opportunities that could lead you to becoming a successful franchise owner. However, there are some franchise investments that could ultimately lead to failure and the loss of hundreds of thousands of dollars. With any business opportunity, there will always be good and bad options. But just because they are not a desirable opportunity does not mean they will present themselves that way in the beginning – even the worst of franchises can look tempting and profitable in the beginning. Fortunately for you, the Forbes Worst Franchise List (scroll to the middle of the page on the Forbes Worst Franchise list to see the listed franchises) lays out some of those franchise opportunities that might look tempting, but are ones that you should stay as far away from as possible – such as a Quiznos franchise.

Quiznos is well-known for selling toasted sub sandwiches. Just like several other sandwich places, they are a quick stop for a sandwich that isn’t just the average turkey and cheddar sandwich you are going to make at home. However, even if you enjoy their food, their business model might not be ideal for you. With a total of 667 units, the 5-year growth rate for a Quiznos franchise is -23%. That number pretty much says it all – your 5-year growth rate should not be a negative number.

Another negative aspect of the Quiznos franchise that continues to hurt their franchising opportunity is the odd franchising structure they practice. Typically, a restaurant franchise will negotiate with vendors on behalf of their franchisees. Then, the franchisor will buy items such as bread, meat, and other commodities from a third party. However, Quiznos buys their commodities from vendors and sells their food at a markup to the franchisees. In turn, this just adds to the poor profits – the franchisees are left paying more for their commodities than they should be and are being ripped off by their own franchisor. This structure quickly eats away at profits and can leave a new business owner struggling to establish their franchise business.

In addition to having a poor franchise structure, Quiznos just simply is not original. Subway has already dominated the market of freshly made sandwiches, and when they added toasting ovens to their stores in 2004 – they sealed the deal. However, Quiznos still offers a seemingly identical product. But, many customers already have their sights set on Subway. This is yet another factor that contributes to poor profits and crumbling businesses.

Becoming a franchise owner is a great opportunity and a way to become your own boss without having to build a business from the ground up. However, a successful franchise begins with selecting the right opportunity for you. The most successful Entrepreneurs know how to either do the due diligence required or hire a professional to do that due diligence on their behalf so that they can steer clear of the bad franchise options. Before making a decision, research the franchise you are interested in to ensure it is all it is cracked up to be.

Is Investing in a DirectBuy Franchise a Good Idea? http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/franchising/is-investing-in-a-directbuy-franchise-a-good-idea/ http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/franchising/is-investing-in-a-directbuy-franchise-a-good-idea/#respond Tue, 03 Apr 2018 18:28:49 +0000 http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/?p=1307 Lately, some of our clients started asking about the DirectBuy franchise, trying to decide if it’s a promising investment for them to make. If you are a reader of my blogs and have gotten the chance to talk to me, you know my thoughts on buying the right franchise to have as a long-term asset.  Deciding to become a franchise owner is a very big step as an Entrepreneur and your business financial health, asset accumulation, and overall success depends on you doing all your homework. With such a big commitment ahead, you want to ensure that you are making every effort to get involved in the best opportunity that fits your long-term business goals and, in some cases, personal plans.

Therefore, the homework you do and the people that you talk to have to be trusted agents, willing to give you the best advice based on facts, not emotions. In years past, I learned the hard way that there are several franchises out there that you should steer clear. Many of these very bad opportunities can be found on the Forbes Worst Franchise List, and one of those is the DirectBuy franchise. (Scroll to the middle of the page on the Forbes Worst Franchise list to see the listed franchises.)

Let’s look at the cold, hard facts – after shelling out an average initial investment of around half million dollars ($500,500), the 5-year growth rate of the franchises’ total 38 units is -12%. With such a bad growth rate and requiring such a high investment, DirectBuy makes Forbes Worst Franchise list. My questions to you is simple: If you are willing to invest that much money, why not look for a franchise opportunity that can provide a higher rate of growth and returns?

The DirectBuy franchise is a membership buying service. Through DirectBuy, members pay a fee and are then eligible to buy products at a discounted rate; these products can be purchased directly from the manufacturer and its authorized suppliers. The products eligible for purchase include home furnishings, entertainment, flooring, outdoor accessories, and home improvement items. While it might sound like something customers are looking for, that major investment could leave you struggling to get up and running. And in this new global market with so many suppliers providing a larger selection, lower prices and almost zero delivery cost options to their customers, the profits for you are just not there as a DirectBuy Franchise owner.

In addition to the major investment in the franchise, the overall business does not seem to be doing so well with its own financials. In 2007, the company was acquired for $550 million by a private equity firm. But, in the coming years, things took a turn for the worst – in 2016, with approximately $185 million in debt, the company filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and had actually closed all 160 of its franchised showrooms. Then, in 2017, the company was acquired in a bankruptcy deal by another private equity firm.

With such a rough financial history in its recent background, it is safe to say that DirectBuy is not the best place for a new franchise owner – or any franchise owner – to make such a substantial investment. Carefully consider the franchise you are about to make your career before making an investment. There are plenty of successful franchise opportunities out there that would be much better suited for you.

How to Become a Master Franchise Owner http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/purchasing-a-franchise/how-to-become-a-master-franchise-owner/ http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/purchasing-a-franchise/how-to-become-a-master-franchise-owner/#respond Tue, 03 Apr 2018 18:19:21 +0000 http://www.tritonfranchiseadvisors.com/?p=1303 Most people are familiar with the term “franchise owner.” As a franchise owner, you purchase a business that is part of a chain – for example, you might purchase a Chick-Fil-A. You will use the same name, trademark, products and services. And, in return, you also now become a business owner and have access to all of the training and assistance that the company headquarters offers their franchisees. This is a great way for those wanting to become a business owner to do so without having to create an entirely new company and business plan.

But, working in the franchise world can go even further than just being a franchise owner and owning only one franchise – there is also something called a Master Franchise Owner. So, if you are looking for an opportunity to be involved in the franchising industry, but in a more hands-on way than owning your own franchise, this is a great opportunity for you.

What is a Master Franchise Owner?

Master franchising is a form of franchisor-franchisee relationship. It is based more around the management and promotion of franchises for potential and current franchise owners.

A Master Franchise owner is someone who enters into the contract with the franchise company and is sold control over the franchising activities in a specific area. They are responsible for helping the franchise company expand by selling and servicing each individual franchise in a large and typically, well-defined area – usually a metropolitan or statewide territory.

However, the master franchise owner is not an employee of the franchise company.

What Are the Tasks of a Master Franchise Owner?

The main goal of a Master Franchise owner is often to help the franchise operator expand more rapidly in the specific territory in which they service. This is frequently done through recruiting individual franchisees. When determining if the goals and tasks of a Master Franchise owner are right for you, consider one major difference – who the customer is for each person. For the franchisee, the customer is the consumer that buys the product they offer, but for the Master Franchise owner, the customer is each individual franchisee.

How Do Master Franchise Owners Get Paid?

Typically, the Master Franchise owner will get a portion of all the money that flows from each individual franchisee in their designated territory to the main franchise company. And, that portion is typically around half of the influx of money. This influx of money could include training fees, build-out assistance fees, initial franchise fees, ongoing royalty fees, or real estate fees.

But, because the Master Franchise owner is not an employee of the franchise company, there is no fixed income or salary. It is strictly a revenue-based position based on the revenue that’s produced for the main company.

Conclusion

Essentially, the Master Franchise owner runs two different businesses – they have one “business” that helps operate each individual franchise and then they have another “business” that helps the franchise company expand. While each task requires a different set of skills and knowledge, if this is a career you are considering, having sales and management experience is a huge benefit for a prospective Master Franchise owner.

Before making the decision to commit as a Master Franchise owner to a specific franchise, here are a few additional tips for how to ensure you end up in the right place:

  • Know your responsibilities. Generally, you will be responsible for recruiting, supporting, and providing training. But you should always inquire about what each individual franchise company expects.
  • Do your research. Never judge a book by its cover – always look up the facts first.
  • Take a road trip. One of the best ways to get a feel for the world you are about to step into is to take a visit to a few of the franchises in the area you are considering working for.
  • Talk to other Master Franchise owners. Aside from doing your own research and site visits, the best way to get true insight into the position is to ask those who have come before you. They might also be able to provide tips, tricks, and even some references who have helped shape their career.

A Master Franchise owner is a great and rewarding position for someone looking to get into the franchise world in another way – as opposed to being a single franchise owner.
