PRLog - Feb. 12, 2014 - JOHANNESBURG, South Africa -- Sean Lilley, Marketing Manager of Scooters Pizza, one of South Africa’s fastest growing fast food franchises that forms part of the Taste Holdings group, shares some insight as to why franchising is an industry that first time entrepreneurs should consider investing in.
People often wonder what it would be like to be their own boss, to be in control of their careers and to earn the salaries that they have always dreamed to earn. It is time to stop wondering and time to get hungry, it is time to consider your own business.
It is a big decision choosing to be your own boss, and it’s even harder deciding which business to get involved in. You firstly need to decide if you want to start from the bottom and work your way up or if you want to take the safer route and buy into an existing brand with a tried and test business recipe. For many first time business buyers the better option would be to start and invest in a well-known brand that offers a proven franchising success record.
Franchising has become an attractive option for many first time ‘own bosses’, as it not only offers a proven business model, it also offers a safety net. A franchise presents a well-known brand name, which makes it easier to attract customers to your business, as well as the necessary marketing tools, training and support to help you achieve business success.
A good franchisor will help you out in the beginning stages of opening doors, but a great franchisor such as Scooters Pizza will be with you every step of the way as your success is our success. Buying into the brand, you will be investing in a fast growing and trusted franchisor that offers a history of success and quality that we’ve spent 14 years building and refining.
As one of South Africa’s top performing franchise options, Scooters Pizza has been helping entrepreneurs realise their business dreams since 2000. Boasting over 125 stores nationwide, our pizza franchise serves a wide range of cheesy pizzas and tasty side dishes in a friendly and welcoming atmosphere. We are also the only brand that has a delivery promise of 39 minutes or it’s free.
Although it is mainly the franchisor’s name that attracts customers through the door, it is important to note that as with any business, the entrepreneur is still responsible for their own success. The franchisee’s responsibility is to ensure that their store runs smoothly, successfully and provides a product and service that keeps customers coming back for more.
If you do decide on partnering with Scooters Pizza, you can rest assured that you’ve chosen a very successful brand and that you will not walk this journey alone as we will be by your side every step of the way.
