As a franchisor I am often asked advice on setting up new franchise systems. A recent question came in that was of interest to the Franchising Community; Is it wiser to use radius mileage rings or zip codes to determine exclusive territories when granting new franchises? Well, let's discuss this for a moment. One problem we found when using a Mileage Territory system is that there would be over-laps and dead zones. For instance a beehive, takes up all the space, but if you stack pipes on a pallet, you have dead space between. This was a huge issue and often caused us to sell territories that looked like a city + 1/3 of another town + 1/5 of another town + 1/2 an industrial park and 2/3 of a spread out college campus.
Today, even individuals that do not have a lot of extra savings are looking to take advantage of investing in a low cost franchise, or an affiliate org. If you pick up a magazine dedicated to this subject, you will quickly find that it will take a fair amount of research to find an opportunity that you can profit from. Chances are, if you read the reviews and ratings carefully, several franchises may appeal to you. As may be expected, there may be many factors that influence your final decision. If you already know that your current career path limits any significant increase in income, starting your own business is the only answer left. As an example, if you are a displaced home maker, or have not achieved a suitable career level, taking part in a low cost franchise can help improve your earnings.
