What is the difference between starting a business or buying a franchise?

Starting your own business is a fabulous idea! It allows you to step away from the limited income and strict structure to follow your dream of flexibility and financial freedom. However, figuring out what approach you should take when you start your own business is very important. You want to figure out if it’s better to just start a new business yourself or just buy a franchise. There are pros and cons on each side.

Why should you start your own business?

Starting your own business means you are the one in control. It’s also quite affordable to start a new company, which is great. On top of that, you can work from home in many situations. You are always in control, you choose the future of your business and you don’t have to worry about anything. It’s definitely a great idea and one that you can build upon and expand all the time.

The downside is obvious though. You are on your own, you have ALL the decisions to do yourself, no one will help unless you pay for it. Also, you don’t really know what will happen, soooo many startups don’t survive the first year.


Additionally, you will need to work long hours and also cover all upgrades or repair costs on your own. While it’s very appealing to create your own business, the truth is that there are downsides to that as well, so you do need to keep those in mind. That’s why addressing the process and handling everything properly is a crucial idea to keep in mind.

Why should you buy a franchise?

Buying a franchise is great because you get to become a part of an established brand. When you are on your own creating a business, you have to spend a lot of money on marketing to generate clients. In the case of a franchise, people already know the brand and everything has been tried and tested. You also receive guidance and assistance from the franchise owners, which is amazing in its own right. Franchising also gives a great exit plan, since you can sell the business to someone else. It’s a fully established business with a known brand, so you can sell without issues.

Which is better?

The reality is that it will take a bit of time to identify the pros and cons of both options. For a lot of people, going with a franchise is simpler. You have an already established business and you don’t have to worry about failure. However, you are relinquishing control over some things- not reinventing the wheel! While startups have a much higher fail rate, the fact that you are always in control sounds very appealing. So it’s all up to you to see what option sounds better, according to your ideas and aspirations!
