While, at a minimum, franchisors need franchise legal documents (Franchise Disclosure Document and Franchise Agreement) and an operations manual, they need to also consider the following best practices:
- Providing Appropriate Quality Control Mechanisms
- Building Solid Supplier Relationships
- Maintaining the Franchise Brand
- Focusing on Continuous Concept and System Improvements
By ensuring quality control, optimizing supplier networks, focusing on customer engagement, and remaining committed to continually improve upon the business model, a smart franchisor is taking the vital steps needed in order to build the best franchise program possible.
