Miami, FL (PressExposure) October 20, 2008 -- Rick Bisio, author of the book, The Educated Franchisee, was recently interviewed. When asked if buying a franchise during difficult economic times was a good idea or a bad risk, he said, âHistory has shown that strong performers tend to take advantage of downturns in the economy, and buying a franchise is one of the top ways to come out a winner.â
Rick went on to explain the advantages of buying a franchise as opposed to starting a new business. âWhen you join a proven franchise opportunity you are handed a tested, proven business model, up-front training, tools for success including computer programs and equipment, sales materials, employee manuals, job descriptions and more. The franchisor will offer extensive on-going support for a rapid start-up.â
According to Bisio, these are just a few of the factors that make franchise ownership much easier than starting a business from scratch. Rick said, âBankers know this, so even in a weak economy, they are more willing to offer loans for franchise purchases.â
Rick also made another great point. âIf youâre looking at a franchise opportunity that requires offices or manufacturing space, now is the time to act! Property values are down and owners are motivated, so you can lease or buy space at lower rates than anyone has seen in years.â
Rick explained that in a weak economy, quality employees are easier to find. âIf you are one of the talented, quality employees who has recently lost your job because of a tough economy, this is the ideal time to buy a franchise business and put yourself in the driverâs seat,â Rick said as the interview was concluded.
