Why Buy a USAMDT Franchise?
The high unemployment rate has everyone worrying about the future. For some people, a recent or pending layoff is just the impetus they need to take their careers to the next level – business ownership. Of course, most people realize that starting a business can be risky and that statistics show the majority of small businesses fail within the first few years. But there’s another option available for those who have accrued some great business experience over their careers and want to take control of their future; business ownership through USAMDT franchising.
Owning a USAMDT Franchise offers most of the benefits of business ownership but provides important additional elements to help one succeed, such as a proven business model, comprehensive training, marketing expertise, and ongoing support. In addition, a nationally recognized brand and trademark provides instant consumer visibility and credibility.
The franchising model works so well that franchising continues to grow, despite the economy, and people are attracted to it for a number of reasons. Though the reasons will vary from person to person, these are the most common situations today that spur people to consider franchise ownership:
With U.S. unemployment reaching record highs, there are millions of people out of work and competition is high for the few available jobs. You could live on your severance package, if you are lucky enough to have one, or you could invest that money in your future by buying a franchise opportunity. As investments go, your return could be substantially higher than what the stock market now provides and franchise ownership may actually allow you to create additional jobs in your community.
In the past 15 years, franchising has seen an increasing trend in large corporations to displace experienced managers in favor of less experienced (and therefore less expensive) workers. This dynamic has created a pool of experienced managers in the 45-60 year old age bracket who have found it quite difficult to gain employment comparable to what they had before. In many cases, they cannot afford to retire and need to create a replacement income for a period of time. More and more, these experienced managers are being attracted to franchising as a vehicle to accomplish this goal without the fear of having to go through another down-sizing again in the future.
Many prospective franchisees are driven by the frustration they’ve felt in past employment situations where they didn’t have enough control of their work environment to influence results in the manner they desired. Perhaps they had a micro-managing boss, a parent corporation that wouldn’t listen, or something comparable. In any case, they are drawn to the idea of being their own boss, having the final say in relation to business decisions, and being able to accept either the credit or the responsibility for whatever outcome their business produces.
Another major attraction for many prospective franchisees is related to lifestyle issues. We see a steady stream of potential investors who talk about their desire to reduce business travel, job related stress and the number of hours they work per week. They often also want to find businesses with down times at certain points in the year so they can take more time off with their families or for other leisure activities. The advantage of franchising for these people is that there are so many options to choose from they are undoubtedly able to find an opportunity that matches their desires.
Wealth Creation Goals
Many of our prospective franchisees have figured out that though their work efforts may be creating a significant amount of wealth, in most cases they are not sharing directly in the wealth they are creating. They will put in their forty plus years and then retire on whatever they’ve managed to save plus Social Security. Many investors are attracted to franchising because they understand that their efforts have the potential to create significant amounts of wealth and they will be the ones who own the wealth that is realized when it comes time to sell the business they’ve built.
If you are fortunate enough to find it, is the right decision for many people. USAMDT Franchise ownership, however, can be ideal for aspiring entrepreneurs and the person who has already succeeded at a career and wants to grow beyond the confines of corporate America. USAMDT Franchising provides many of the benefits of business ownership – the ability to make decisions and have control, to create wealth for the present and equity for the future; but is considered less risky than starting your own business.
