The Franchise Buying Process: What to Expect When Purchasing

Ready to own a franchise? Moran Family of Brands can help you learn about the franchise buying process and what to expect when you join a franchise team.


Franchising allows you to skip the startup phase of business ownership by offering a concept with a proven track record and brand recognition. Many franchises come equipped with an established customer base, and franchises have a lower failure rate than independent businesses. The franchising model traditionally generates more rapid growth, employment, and reaction to economic changes, compared with independent businesses, according to the International Franchise Association. Experts predict at least 26,000 franchised small businesses will open in 2021, bringing the total number of franchises in the United States to 780,188.


The outbreak of the pandemic forced many people to reevaluate their career goals and discover new opportunities. Franchising allows people to exit the constraints of the corporate world and be their own boss with ample training and support to succeed. It also opens the doors to people searching for affordable business ownership opportunities. Nearly one-third of respondents said they would not own a business without franchising, according to a survey of 4,000 franchisees conducted by Oxford Economics.

Moran also offers detailed information about the training and support it provides each franchise owner.


Meet With Peers. One of the benefits of franchising is having a wealth of business owners who can provide support and advice on their experiences starting their locations. During validation, prospective franchisees can take time to learn about franchise ownership from current franchisees. Existing franchisees can provide insight and describe their real-life experiences, which helps new franchisees eliminate surprises.


Discovery Day. Moran invites prospective franchise owners to visit its corporate headquarters, in person or virtually, to meet its support staff and executive team.
