Franchising Opportunities – Want to Have Your Own E-Cig Shop?
Find out how you can open your very own franchised vaping store with VaporFi and the International Vapor Group
Ever dreamed of owning your own shop? Of being your own boss? Are you a vaper? Why not open up your own e-cig store?
Of course, from experience we know that this is easier said than done. Forbes' calculates that approximately 543,000 small businesses get started each month, and yet each month more employer businesses shut down than start up. In other words, it can be brutal to start your own business these days, especially in today's economic climate.
One opportunity that is often not considered is a franchise store. Whether you are an avid vaper wanting to make your mark on the e-cig community, or an eager entrepreneur looking to get a foot in the door of the booming e-cig industry—or perhaps a little bit of both—then we invite you to consider the lucrative franchising opportunities with VaporFi and the International Vapor Group (IVG).
Keep reading to find out more about how franchising works, the benefits of this business model, and what VaporFi can offer you.
How Franchising Works
Franchising is a business strategy wherein a company is able to enlarge its market influence more quickly and less expensively by contracting out their business model and brand to various individuals, typically called "store operators." In return, the operator pays the franchisor an initial fee and/or a specified percentage of sales throughout the term of the franchising contract.
Essentially, franchising is way for individuals who want to operate and run their own business to establish a relationship with a proven successful company in order to use its resources and get a faster ROI, or return on investment.
Currently, there are an estimated 2,500 franchises in the U.S., and over 600,000 units. In fact, some of the biggest businesses in the country have utilized the franchise business model to grow their company – examples include such household names as Subway, McDonald's, 7-Eleven, H&R Block, Great Clips and Dunkin' Donuts are all franchised businesses.
Benefits of the Franchise Business Model
For a franchisor, this business model offers a less risky alternative to expanding their distribution and marketing in a way that does not have as much liability or overhead costs compared to building chain stores.
In return, franchisees, or the store operator, profits from this business relationship in several ways, including:
- Reduction of risk – franchises usually get up and running faster, therefore becoming profitable sooner than if you start a small business from scratch
- Better management – the Small Business Administration (SBA) says weak management is the leading culprit behind why most small businesses fail; however, in franchising—particularly the management team at the wheel of IVG and VaporFi—managerial strength is what shines brightest
- Lower overhead costs – franchisees tend to get better deals from suppliers since the franchisor purchases bulk goods for the entire chain and has better leverage when haggling over price; these savings are then passed onto the franchised units
- Instant customer base – as a franchisee, you have the right to sell and profit from an established product that is has already been "tried and tested" in the market; this means regular customers that are already familiar with your product from the start
Lastly, for the most important group—the customers—one of the main advantages of franchising is being able to trust the reliability and durability of the product they are buying and the customer service they can expect to receive. As a customer shopping at a franchised store, you can generally count on the fact that the quality of the product and/or service will be comparable with another location.
