The Long Answer

The Franchise Chamber of South Africa addresses the development of Franchises in a very structured and phased approach.

The four phases are:

CONCEPT or consider phase – during which the entrepreneur considers franchising as growth strategy concept and engages with us to discuss aspects such as:

Pros and cons of franchising.

Potential pitfalls.

More details on the process.

As well as initial aspects of the design of the franchise system.

Part of this initial phase is usually also a detail proposal.

The DESIGN phase – during which the franchise system is designed, suitable for this unique business and environment, prior to development of the legal documents.  The design phase addresses various aspects, including:

The structure, format and amounts for royalties or management fees.

The structure of the marketing fund and the contribution by each franchisee.

The term of the franchise agreement.

The capital cost and detail breakdown of all requirements for establishment.

A detail analysis of the profitability of the franchise – for both the franchisor and the franchisee.

Determination of the initial selling price as well as the structure of payment.

We document all of the above in the format of a franchise viability study, which includes the evaluation of the business on 15 criteria which include elements such as uniqueness and barriers to entry, sustainability, transfer of skills, profitability, etc. It serves as the foundation for the franchise documents.

We also address the development and registration of trademarks.

The development of the Franchise Disclosure Document.

The development of the Franchise Agreement

We assist with the development of the Operations Manual as required.

The final step in this phase is accreditation with FASA.

Establish Phase – An important step in the phases where our team assists with selling the first franchise, together with the franchisor supporting the new franchisee towards profitability. The steps included in this step phase are :

Defining and designing the franchise roll-out programme with preferred initial territories.

Selling the first franchise and concluding the contractual agreements, even registering the required companies if required.

Training of the franchisee and establishment of the franchise.

Combined support from the franchisor and the Franchise Chamber of South Africa to the franchisee to ensure rapid growth towards profitability.

Once Franchise #1 is profitable, we support the sale of franchise #2 – and the same steps of training and support towards profitability. (THE ESTABLISH PHASE)

Thereafter the roll-out programme and management of franchises progresses towards the growth phase.

The Growth phase – This phase focuses on scaling the franchises in the franchise network. Growth is not a decision taken lightly but a consideration of future locations for the franchise, the roll out plan, ensuring consistent brand experience and future pricing of the franchise. 

Roll-out strategy.

Management of franschise applications

In selected cases, we can even assist with funders.

In unique cases, we assist with the management of the franchise network and managing the performance and compliance of the franchisees.
