Myanmar is a unique place with a growing economy. Some people turn to franchises to start a business because of the proven model. Not all franchises are ready for the Myanmar market and some you may not be ready to take on yourself. If you are wanting to buy a franchise and not sure where to start, here are some tips on how to avoid choosing the wrong franchise.
Don’t Limit Your Options
The worst thing is having buyer’s remorse. The second worst thing is having only one idea in your mind about the franchise you want. There are thousands of franchise options from great companies around the world. Look at the different kinds of businesses and base it off what’s best, not what one you know. Not everyone can grab a McDonalds or Starbucks franchise.
Don’t Choose A Bad Match
Look at your skill set. Different franchises require different sets of skills. Look at what experience you have in the particular type of franchise you are wanting to get into. For example food franchises often require some experience in restaurant management. If you don’t have any experience it will be hard to develop that as you go. Do your skills match the franchise? If not, look for another option.
Don’t Take On More Than You Can Handle
The hours can be demanding in starting a franchise. Many people find that they underestimated what effort it would take to run a franchise. Maybe they thought once it gets started it can run itself. Franchises have developed processes for the business but all businesses are demanding. Make sure you look at the pros and cons of getting into a franchise.
