Considering the advantages of becoming part of a franchise family, you know that when you buy an existing outlet, you will also reap the above benefits. Below are some of the profitable and growing opportunities to consider.
Used Goods Sales and Loans
Pawn shops have been around for a long time. However, with the franchising of specific second-hand goods stores, also offering loans, the landscape for this type of business has changed considerably.
With the well-known brand name, right to trade under the name, the technology and software from the franchisor, and set policies in place, you gain a distinct competitive edge over independent second-hand goods stores. The locations of these retailers are superb. In addition, neat shop fittings, well-planned layouts, security, and uniforms for staff members are included.
Consider how important quality in food service is, and you have ample reason to consider one of the restaurant franchise opportunities, especially if the brand is well-known in South Africa. This is even more true if the restaurant is located in a busy mall that offers a high foot count and secure environment. With this type of opportunity, you get to serve proven dishes, which are popular with families in South Africa. This restaurant model has been around for a long time and is growing in popularity.
From reading to math skills development, educational franchises exist in South Africa. One such a brand with a proven track record is Kip McGrath™ Education Centres, where children receive extra English and math lessons. If you love working with children or have an education background, consider this highly profitable opportunity. The brand has a history of more than four decades and, as such, provides superb credibility to the service offerings by the education centres. With more and more children struggling with math in South Africa, you certainly have a growing market when you become part of the Kip McGrath™ family.
Another one of the highly profitable opportunities available is the 3@1 Business Centre. The 3@1 Business Centre model celebrates two decades as a popular and trusted business communication retail franchise. As such, you buy into a proven concept. Offer courier, photocopying, Internet access, and photo printing services at one retail outlet. Customers appreciate the convenience of having all their business communication needs met at a single outlet.
