Three Important Aspects of a Franchise Territory

Three Important Aspects of a Franchise Territory

When you are looking for ways to start a business, a franchise may be an option. For these ventures to be profitable, you should understand franchising's basic elements, such as franchise territory. Each franchisee is given a geographic area in which to operate, and you may have other franchisees that border your territory. Knowing how to evaluate a specific territory helps you make sound business decisions. When it comes to franchise territories, size is not always the most crucial consideration. Here are three other vital aspects of franchise territories to consider.

Exclusive or Protected

Franchise language includes the terms exclusive and protected, but each has a different meaning that affects your bottom line. An exclusive franchise agreement means that you are the only source in the area for the goods and services that are being offered. Protected may mean that other franchisees are in the same area and may compete for the same customer pool. Each model has advantages and disadvantages, so you should evaluate the options based on your specific needs, resources, and strategies. Even if the agreement defines protected territories, you may be able to find ways to service customers better than a neighboring franchise and create customer loyalty for your location.

Criteria for Territories

Not all territories are defined by geographic areas. Some franchisors set up their territories by county, zip code, population size, and other criteria. Understanding how a franchisor sets up territories helps you set realistic expectations for your franchise's success based on the number of potential customers. You should also inquire about how the franchisor determined the basis for the territories, including research and any sources of data. You want to work with franchisors who put in the effort to ensure that franchise territories are geared for success rather than an uphill battle for the franchisee.

Other Distribution Channels

Alternative distribution channels are other vital aspects of franchise territories. Some franchisors offer goods and services that are viable for distribution channels beyond the traditional brick-and-mortar model. As such, these franchisors may sell directly to your potential and current customers. Review the franchise agreement carefully to see if this is the case. If you do not see language about alternative distribution channels in the documents, ask the franchisor before signing the agreement.

    The Tutoring Center® is exactly what my child needed to give him an extra boost for school. My son looks forward to going to tutoring, even after a whole day at school. I feel like we have found a permanent solution to any problems we have in school now and in the future.
    —Heather H.

    The Tutoring Center® has been helping our son to improve his reading skills. He likes the environment. The consistency of the program is comforting, and he is motivated by the reward system. Consequently, he usually has a positive attitude about attending, which is one of the best things about the center for us, because in the past he could be resistant to extra help.
    —Steve B.

    The free diagnostic test gave us great insight into where our daughter currently is academically and where she needs to be. The tutors work one on one with her and she can't wait to go.
