Savvy enough to go it alone?
Positive: Great program for students. Creative and flexible for franchise owners. Easy to set your own schedule. Little to no pressure to achieve goals. Little oversight or review from Franchisor. Franchisees identify themselves as teachers (do-ers) first and business owners second. Neutral: Franchisees identify themselves…

Evaluation Criteria: Best Children's Franchises
Growth Prospect

Our approach to evaluating Children’s franchises involves an in-depth look at the average growth and performance of franchised businesses compared to industry and market averages. For those looking to start a franchised business it is critical to select a franchise which has a long-term history of growth and expansion within their particular niche and to be able to develop over time based on industry trends and research.

Marketing Support

During our analysis of franchises we spend time comparing how much support in marketing each franchisor offers to their franchises when establishing and maintaining a market presence. While it takes money and time to start a franchise, it also takes marketing prowess and advertising support to ensure that the business is reaching a target audience with a keen interest in the products and services being offered.

Training

For many franchises which specialize in Children’s products and services it is absolutely vital to have properly trained professionals involved in the process. For example, when handling day care services, it is important for all involved to be properly trained in child care. Many businesses which deal with children need to be properly trained and certified to ensure federal and state regulations are being followed.

Ongoing Support

Our examination on the ongoing support offered by franchises involves delving into how much the franchise communicates with their franchised businesses in order to keep them in the loop on new developments within the industry. It is important for not only the franchisor, but for the franchisee to remain ahead of the curve in terms of new regulations, requirements, and ongoing health concerns for Children.

Value

To create a qualitative analysis of various Children’s franchises we take a precise look at the financial history and the familiarity achieved in branding. We have found it to be important for a franchisor to achieve a sense of value in their branding initiatives which allows for new markets to quick adjust to the offerings and the nuances of the services being offered in addition to the brand being recognized by parents.
