You have put your heart and energies into your franchise and we know that it will be a great success. But there is always room for improvement, and the tips below could help you make an even better success of the business. The key point to make is that sometimes it is the little things that make a big difference, so make sure you remember them!
Know that the rules are there to help you
There are many advantages to working as a franchise. Sometimes even the smaller things can be useful. Take the uniformity aspect of franchises. What you get is the same, wherever you go. This means that a positive review of the franchise in one area will apply to you too. You may feel like branching out from the rules at times, but by adhering to them, you are making the whole concept work- for you and for everyone else too.
Remember detail is everything
As the franchisee, you need to always be aware of the details that are vital to your business. What are your fixed costs, what are variable? Have these to hand at all times. It means you will know if something needs changing, or isn’t working, and you can adapt immediately. Knowing the detail of your business makes good sense and saves unnecessary profit losses.
Make friends with your fellow franchisees
There are many other people out there in the same franchise, learning the same things and needing help occasionally with aspects of the business they are less sure of. Why not share the load? When you join the franchise, get to know others in the same position, and keep in contact with them. That way you can call them when you want some quick advice and, it goes without saying, you can be there for them too as your skills and experience develop.
Remember you are local, so get involved locally
Though a national franchise, you are operating at a local level. Make the most of this and get your presence known. Join the local business community in whatever way suits you, and gain valuable reach by sponsoring local events or sports and recreational clubs and teams. The name Domestique is known to people, but you can certainly capitalise further on it.
Success depends on team work- and this includes you
Nothing could be more important than having the right team. However, keeping them, and ensuring your business works well doesn’t just depend on others, it depends on you too. For maximum success, you need to be integral to your team- at every level. Know what they do, work with them and gain their respect. You will find the whole team dynamics will improve, and profits along with them.
