Why Franchising is Going Global

Why Franchising is Going Global

By on Nov 25, 2015 in News |

Why Franchising is Going Global Taking a franchise brand international is, in a sense, the final frontier for growth. It’s where many franchise brands that have begun – and been successful – in the U.S turn when they seek expansion. It’s a strategy that often occurs in part because of growth that has saturated domestic markets and territories. Typically, larger more established franchise brands begin looking across borders for untapped markets and potential growth. It’s an expansion strategy that’s not new. But during the past couple of decades as franchising has continued to grow as a popular business model, the international growth strategy has been on the rise. International franchising can also provide opportunities for new and existing franchisees looking for expansion options. There are opportunities as near as Mexico and Canada and as far as the Middle East. In one sense, international franchising can be a relatively smooth and easy process. After all, the franchise concept is built around infrastructure, simplicity, replication, and streamlined operations. What works in one place generally works in another. And many international markets are wide open and untapped and offer enormous potential for franchisors – with the right products, services, and business culture. Consider this, eighty percent of the world’s population lives in areas that are considered emerging markets. The U.S. Department of Commerce estimates that over 75 percent of the expected growth in the world’s trade over the next two decades will come from developing countries, particularly big emerging markets, which account for over half the world’s population, but only 25 percent of its gross domestic product. Nevertheless, there are challenges for franchisors that seek expanding kingdoms in other lands – and often for the franchisees who operate the units. Franchisors look at key markers such as what kind of demand exists for their products and services in the new international market(s), the initial cost of entry, sourcing supplies and related vendor issues, and whether or not it makes sense to open company and franchise units in these new territories. Franchisors are going to evaluate a country’s GDP per capita, general population statistics, and the overall health of the country’s economy. Another significant factor affecting international expansion, laws often vary from country...

Why You Should Do Business in Mexico

By on May 3, 2015 in Blog, News |

We found this great article from American Express about why now is the time to be expanding your business into Mexico. We will be conducting a 1-Day CEO Bootcamp on June 4, 2015 in San Diego and we’ll be talking about this exact subject in much more detail. Click Here to Learn more about our 1-Day CEO Bootcamp Source: https://www.americanexpress.com/us/small-business/openforum/articles/why-you-should-do-business-in-mexico/ By Katie Morell Entrepreneurs with a touch of wanderlust are looking to Mexico as a viable business location, and for smart reasons. Elizabeth Helsley fell in love with Mexico while on a yearlong college study abroad trip to Mexico City. After graduating in 2001, she went back home and worked in San Diego until a U.S.-based company relocated her back to Mexico City. She was thrilled with the opportunity, so much so that in 2010 she left the company and started her international consulting business Global Luxe in Guadalajara. “I get up and am excited to go to work every day,” she beams. Entrepreneurs like Helsley with a touch of wanderlust are looking to Mexico as a viable business location, and for smart reasons. First: while the rest of the world reels from financial meltdown, Mexico’s economy is going strong. “After the crisis of 2008, Mexico proved to be very stable,” says Mauricio Monroy, president of the U.S.-Mexico Chamber of Commerce California Regional Chapter. “We had a similar situation in the late ’90s and since then, our banks have gotten healthy and diversified, so we are nicely insulated from what the rest of the world is going through.” Second: the exchange rate. At press time, 1 USD was equivalent to around 12 Mexican pesos. This is good for Mexico, as the peso has historically been worth much less. The result: “It is cheaper for Mexicans to buy U.S. products and services,” he says. Third: the lack of culture shock on the part of Mexican consumers. American products, advertising and services are commonplace in Mexico, making it that much easier for U.S.-born entrepreneurs to launch a business inside the country. Fourth: U.S. companies can establish a presence in Mexico and stay owned and managed by U.S. nationals. “In many other countries, you have to hire a local employee,” Monroy says. “Here, it’s not hard to start...
