Auto Paint, Body Repair and Wash Franchises
Buying a franchise has its benefits in that customers are familiar with the name, and the owner gets training and support that would otherwise not be available from the purchase of a privately owned small business. Although it's still not a guarantee of success, it is a consideration when taking the big step of going into business for yourself.
A franchise owner would also be provided with advice on all aspects of running the business from marketing to management of personnel.
There are initial fees to owning a franchise. Some of these could be quite high. Some franchise owners also must pay into a national advertising fund, for example. Be sure to ask specific questions so you know what your financial obligations will be.
