What is a Semi-Absentee Franchise?
What is a Semi-Absentee Franchise?
If you know anything about franchising, you know that the typical Franchise Owner stays extremely busy and is heavily involved in the daily operations of the company. It can be a tough job with multiple demands to attend to. Some people love the rush of being in charge. Others are quickly overwhelmed by it.
We only allow semi-absentee ownership off the bat if a Franchise Owner knows who their General Manager will be before starting the business and it is someone they have worked with previously.
We know starting a flooring installation business can be overwhelming. From day one, you’ll have a Team of highly experienced Support Staff to help you get up and running, and continue to grow your business into the future. Our goal is to make sure you think of us not as the “Support Team” but as your second family.
You may be looking into a semi absentee franchise that gives you options when it comes to the level of involvement you’d like to have within your business. There are many advantages to running this kind of franchise.
Frees Up Your Schedule
With a semi absentee franchise, you’ll be able to hire a competent manager once things are up and rolling. That will give you the chance to dedicate your time to other priorities; like family, traveling, or personal development.
Opens the Door for Other Opportunities
Some entrepreneurs love the semi absentee model because it frees them up to start other businesses or open additional franchise locations.
Puts You in Charge
Whether you’re a behind-the-scenes worker or you like to take center stage, a semi absentee franchise means your business will thrive whether or not you’re able to lead the way.
