Cheap and profitable franchises: what to evaluate before investing

For many entrepreneurs, the franchise model is the best option to realize the dream of a business of their own. Currently, there are countless alternatives of cheap and lucrative franchises in which it is possible to invest, however, some care is needed before choosing a brand, so as not to end up losing capital.

How to invest in cheap and lucrative franchises

According to Carlos Solanet, Commercial Director of La Rural, Predio Ferial de Buenos Aires, and co-organizer of the Argentina Franchise 2015 exhibition, the franchiser must present the interested party in acquiring the business with the minimum economic results of its commercial activity of the previous two years, guaranteeing what was promised. Thus, the entrepreneur who wishes to open the franchise can evaluate the background.

“Those are the most important factors to consider. Any other type of consideration will be more related to the business that the franchisee is interested in joining”, he explains.

Solanet also states that, based on the regulation of the contract and the incorporation of the tested system (the presentation of the results), the law provides guarantees regarding the expected return on investment for any type of franchise.

“Then the results obtained can be proportional to the size of the franchiser’s brand and the investment made in its sales promotion; but it cannot be said that a franchise, because it is cheaper, is not profitable,” he adds.
