You’re probably aware that many franchise businesses operate more seasonally. With a smart approach to franchising, you don’t have to worry over whether your niche business is too risky. Many of them are very profitable and we can demonstrate that by looking at some of the great benefits of seasonal franchises:
Lots of Time For Planning & Marketing
We’re firm believers that franchisees should spend substantial time on planning. FranSave exists for the specific purpose of helping you get into franchising the right way. You should want to plan correctly and eschew the common pitfalls. Seasonal franchises, almost by definition, have such a great opportunity for careful planning. One way to do this is to spend the offseason more closely crafting your marketing campaigns. If your business runs during Christmas and the rest of the holidays, you have the rest of the year to strategize.
Overhead is Lower & More Targeted
By running a business seasonally, you can shut off everything once the pre-planned downtime occurs. Many businesses cannot do this, and they’re forced to operate with lots of useless overhead. Seasonal franchises do not have this problem anywhere near as much.
How many times have you heard your friends or coworkers lament the lack of training they receive at their jobs? It’s a big problem in American business. Seasonal franchises resolve this problem nicely because they have the entire rest of the year for training; you don’t have to rush through it anymore.
Buy Multiple Seasonal Franchises
Many business owners have more than one franchise. Some might imagine that to be incredibly difficult to manage, but the seasonal approach could be a way of making that happen.
You Can Take Control of Your Inventory Much Easier
Traditional businesses must contend with a more permanently moving process. This means that their inventories are always in flux, not so for seasonal businesses. If your business operates for 3-6 months of the year, that gives you between 6-9 months to restock your inventory. Your customers will thank you for being the prompt and best organized at delivering your goods and services too (because you never run out or need to make excuses).
Way More Free Time During Off Seasons
Some franchisees may already be retired and financially independent, preferring to own a franchise as nothing but a side hustle. Seasonal franchises are great for this because it means you free yourself to enjoy retirement, vacations, or whatever other obligations you have during an off-season.
FranSave hopes you feel illuminated and empowered to pursue an exciting seasonal endeavor. You never know. This could be your gateway into franchising by starting small during only part of the year.
