While a franchise is a small business, it takes a certain personality to partner with a franchisor. The corporate office wants to make sure they partner with those who are willing to follow the business structure. Here are some of the typical traits of a franchise owner. While some of these can be learned, others come naturally and need to be inherent in a person buying into a medical franchise.
- Someone who believes in the business strategy, product and system the franchisor has created with total faith and have the ability to stand behind the company 100%.
- Someone who is a risk taker, yet has his/her feet grounded. The ideal candidate is someone who is a risk taker with big goals, but also the ability to know when a risk is too big.
- Someone who is a self-starter and will take the initiative for researching and fact finding.
- Finally, being someone who is a rule follower is helpful. From day one, a franchisee is buying into a set plan that has to be followed, contractually.
The blending of each of these characteristics is helpful for a medical franchise owner to have. While this combination will present differently for each individual, each characteristic will help set the franchisee on a path of stability. Each franchise has it’s own hiring process for prospective franchise owners. Don’t be discouraged if you are lacking one of these character traits.
