Is a yard sign franchise a better option than owning your own yard sign business?
The problem with this question is that it will be different for everyone. The success of your business regardless of which model you opt to go with is going to be determined by you.
Important notes to make when considering your return on investment.
A yard sign franchise will license you the product and branding , method, turnkey solution for starting a business and in return you will pay your initial investment for this solution and then continue to pay what is known as “royalties” based on your sales.
I would name this as one of the biggest reasons people sometimes decide not to go with the yard card franchise method.
When you own your own business your startup investment might be less but so is the knowledge.
Essentially you are paying into a franchise to cut out the learning curve, which through time will cost you money.
What is a yard sign franchise?
Well, a franchise is a type of business arrangement where the franchisor grants an individual or group (known as franchisees) the right to use the franchisor’s trademarks, logos, and other proprietary information in order to operate a business.
In exchange for this right, the franchisee pays a royalty or other fee to the franchise.
Will starting my own business entail same costs as starting a yard sign franchise?
Well, that will really depends on your money management skills, ability to follow trends, and strategy.
Personally, sharing royalties and not being able to have some ‘creative say’ in my business is what deterred me from the franchise model for starting a yard card and stork rental business, and ultimately was the reason that I didn’t build out the whole side around it.
