 1. Access to capital

This is somewhat overcome as commercial banks and development corporations recognize the lower risk profile of franchising and consequently prefer financing a franchisee. Financiers know they have a "safety net" in the franchiser who has tested and fine-tuned the franchised system.

2. Experience of the franchiser

Our franchise package comes along with years of experience and proven methods. This eliminates many of the start-up problems and enables someone with little or no experience in a particular industry to become part thereof.

3. Training

The franchiser provides both initial and ongoing training to a new franchisee. This helps to prepare the franchisee in all facets of the business. This method of skills transfer takes place at all levels i.e. Management training, technique training, preview, promotion, presentation, as well as employees' training at all levels.
