Welcome to 123franchising.net

Consider this franchising 101! It is ran by the folks from the premier franchise development, funding, and franchise sales organization Franchise Beacon.  We keep www.franchisebeacon.com specific to it’s three clusters; startup, sales, and development as services. This site is for everything else.

As this site develops, we will talk about the basics of franchising, from a franchisee and franchisor standpoint, in small, chewable bites. You won’t find any deep dive articles, Ultimate Guides, or long-form content here. Just short articles and videos that explain one small piece of the franchise puzzle, along with resources to dig in deeper. If you are considering franchising your business, you should start with our 5 questions to ask before you franchise, then Am I ready to Franchise, and finally The Ten Steps from Business to Franchisor.

As a franchisee, a good place to start is the Top Ten Guerrilla Marketing Tactics For Retailers, because nothing is more important than driving customer engagement!

Finally, be sure to check out our franchise resources page. This will get you pointed in the right direction for how-to’s, books, organizations, etc.   Thanks for stopping by!
