You may be joining a franchise that has students and customers that already exist. If not, you could be investing in a franchise that already has an existing reputation which could lead to you getting even more business.
Staff recruitment and training
Franchises can help you find suitable staff and they can even train you in the areas of the business that you are unsure about.
