How to Identify a Coffee Franchise and Use It

By: Rosie Mhlanga

You can find almost every coffee franchise opportunity in the United States and several across the globe by performing a simple search online and planning to spend a good deal of quality time sifting through the results. If you prefer to take the easy route, and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that, the websites and directories mentioned above are excellent tools for your arsenal.

The reason most people decide to pursue a coffee franchise opportunity is to achieve financial security and even prosperity. For this reason you want to make a decision about your coffee franchise that will help you achieve those goals. Take the time to do the work before you invest and make decisions based on reason with a plan for profit rather than based on emotion and a hope for a payoff on your efforts.

Finding one with flair

The most obvious thing you need to know about when deciding to open a coffee franchise is coffee. There are many resources online that can help you learn more about the products you will be peddling and there is no replacement for knowledge. Learning about coffee can also help you narrow down and ultimately select the coffee franchise that you feel will meet your standards and needs best. The more you know about the product you will be selling the greater the opportunity to make a profit.

The good news is that there are many coffee franchises that offer a little bit more than coffee for franchise owners to serve. My personal favorite is one such business that offers fudge and coffee though this is certainly not the only calorific option available. There are plenty of businesses that combine a bakery with a coffee franchise or a caf atmosphere with the coffee culture. Some newer businesses are also combining smoothies with their coffee options.

The comparison

Financing. Many coffee franchises have resources to help those who wish to buy into the franchise find financing. Some do not however. If there are opportunities for financing within the franchise this is a plus to many would be franchise owners while others prefer to come up with their own financing. Some franchises also require those who buy into the franchise to have a certain amount of money to invest in addition to any financing. You need to hammer out all the fine print and financial details before making any decisions or property purchases.

Training/Support. This is the final of the major considerations you need to check when comparing one coffee franchise with others. A company that offers a true partnership and extensive training and support to franchise owners is worth its weight in gold. You need to find out how much training and support are offered, how they are offered, when they are offered, and what this will mean to you as a franchise owner. A company that offers virtually unlimited training to help you get business up and running is worth more money and higher fees than those that leave you to tread water until you sink or swim.
