The uncertainty that comes with transitioning into franchising from a corporate job can be overwhelming, but it’s well worth it. Working for yourself is a huge step in your career, and we try to make that career change as seamless as possible. When you embark on a Supporting Strategies franchise, you’ll reap the rewards of a turnkey investment with a proven business model, built-in brand awareness, and a sophisticated training infrastructure. Through our comprehensive franchisee education process, training materials, and supportive community, our franchisees are prepared and confident when they open their doors.
Be Your Own Boss
Most entrepreneurs decide to start a franchise because they want to shake the shackles of a restrictive corporate job and have more control of their own business. We’re serious about giving you the freedom to do that. While there are certain brand guidelines you will be expected to adhere to, and a proven business model you must follow, you will be largely in control of the day-to-day operations of your franchise. This flexibility is particularly refreshing for those who come from a corporate company. One benefit that stands out above the rest is the ability to work from a remote office and be entirely location-independent. This is a great cost-saving technique, as our franchisees aren’t required to waste unnecessary funds on an office space.
Working for yourself can seem daunting if you don’t have the resources to thoroughly educate yourself on your new industry. Luckily, when you open a Supporting Strategies franchise you’ll be provided an extensive suite of educational and training materials, called Supporting Strategies University (SSU). SSU is our repository of educational materials, including on-demand, video-based courses and a library complete with standardized procedures, customized templates and articles on bookkeeping, operations, business development, and franchise management. Live training and support is also available, and our Support Team is available to handle support request tickets, management needs, IT issues and more.
You might be your own boss, but that doesn’t mean you’re forced to run the show all alone. Our experienced Franchise Development Team is always on-hand to field your questions, and we’ll also assign you a cohort of other franchisees. We believe this is important for adjusting to franchise ownership, as it gives you a support system of others with the same goals who want to see you succeed. Your cohort is perfect for exchanging ideas, receiving support, and staying connected with other members of the Supporting Strategies franchise family.
