FAQs: Best Franchise to Buy in Colorado?

Finding the right franchise to buy in Colorado can be a daunting task. With dozens of different franchisors, it’s nearly impossible to know which is the best option for you and your budget. To make matters worse, it can be hard to differentiate between successful franchises and those that are not.

Fortunately, the International Franchise Professionals Group (IFPG) has created its online franchise broker network to help entrepreneurs ranging from casual business seekers to serial franchise investors who are looking to invest in the perfect franchise in Colorado. By having access to a curated list of franchisors, investors can understand the market and find the right franchise for them.

Although there are many questions that need to be thoughtfully answered before investing in a franchise, here are some of the frequently asked questions many investors have asked before investing in Colorado.

What are the Benefits Realized from Investing in a Franchise?

There are many benefits realized from investing in a franchise. When you invest in a business, you become part of a larger system with a well-honed process and reduced risk compared to starting your business from scratch. Additionally, franchises offer the ability to generate greater returns than most traditional investments.

For entrepreneurs who have been laid off or have been otherwise affected negatively due to the global pandemic, franchises offer an ideal solution. Investment in a franchise allows people to create a stable source of income and take back control of their financial future. And with many franchisors offering attractive discounts, incentives and other perks, franchises provide an exceptional return on investment.

How Do I Choose the Right Franchise to Invest In?

Choosing the right franchise to invest in can largely depend on the market opportunity you are looking for. Evaluate which types of businesses have shown to be industry leaders in Colorado while considering the types of businesses that appeal to your strengths, interests, and financial abilities.

The IFPG also offers a variety of franchise consultant resources to give you the best guidance on what type of franchise will generate the highest return and lowest risk. Our franchise broker group members have decades of experience and are comfortable navigating the complexities of owning and operating a franchise.

When considering a particular franchise, make sure you understand the franchisor’s history of success, their ability to enforce their rules and regulations, and the ROI potential of their offering. Talk to their existing franchisees and get feedback on their experience. Also make sure you understand the financial information that comes along with the investment (initial fee, royalties, fees, etc.). Finally, familiarize yourself with the local and state regulations pertaining to franchises.

What Are the Financial Considerations I Should Make Before Investing?

Before investing in a franchise, it’s important to set a budget, gain access to start-up capital, understand all of the associated costs, and create a plan. Evaluate the financing and loan options available as not all franchises are created equal. Some require a high initial investment while others are more affordable. Additionally, factor in the long-term costs such as regular fees and royalties that you will have to pay as a franchisee.

In terms of financing, the SBA provides attractive loan programs, and some franchise systems also offer in-house financing, so make sure to consider all the options before making a decision.

What Type of Training and Support Does IFPG Offer?
