Pioneering a new business can be challenging and fulfilling at the same time.
Imagine being able to enjoy all the benefits of entrepreneurship–setting your own schedule, being your own boss, working in a field you’re passionate about, to name a few–without the intimidating pitfalls that come with starting from scratch. This is essentially what franchising with Core Education and Fine Arts School (CEFA) is: an opportunity to be in business for yourself under the guidance of an established brand with a proven formula.
Of course, that isn’t to say that starting a franchise is like waving a magic wand, but for many aspiring business owners, franchising is an equally rewarding entry into entrepreneurship with significantly less risk.
You can avoid the risks associated with starting from scratch
Powerful lessons can be taken away from the inevitable speed bumps you’ll hit as a new business owner, but some mistakes can be costly. Companies that offer a franchise opportunity have already worked past the roadblocks and pitfalls of starting fresh, so as a partner you get to enjoy a fast-tracked path to success.
CEFA’s business model is not only tried-and-true, it consists of a recurring revenue model without the need for heavy capital investments.
You can get your foot in the door
While it’s useful to have some knowledge of the industry you’re entering when starting a new business from scratch, there is no rule that says you must be an expert to embark! Partnering with a franchisor is the perfect opportunity to start in a field that you’re passionate about even if you don’t have prior experience, because the franchisor is handing over a proven business model along with the tools and knowledge you need to succeed!
A number of successful CEFA partners began their journey and saw the profound impact of the curriculum and wanted to be a part of it!
You can build your own team
As an owner and a leader, you create the team. As a Franchise Partners, this begins with choosing a brand to partner with–hopefully a company that aligns with your goals and values–and carries on with the hiring process. It’s an opportunity to build a team of people with a shared vision, with whom you can effectively collaborate, so that you can play to each other’s strengths and grow together!
CEFA is dedicated to positive impact that reaches not just the kids that go through the curriculum, but its community of Franchise Partners as well.
You can secure funding more easily
Financing a new business can be incredibly daunting, especially if you’re using a fresh business model; the lack of demonstrable predictability is often a roadblock to securing financing. Partnering with a well established franchise like CEFA means you’re working with a tried and true business model and accurate financial projections, which provides a considerable amount of credibility.
You get access to training
Going into business for yourself often means it’s on you to become a Jack or Jill of all trades; from operations and management to marketing and accounting, there is a lot to learn and the process usually comes with quite a curve. While there’s no way to evade the beginner phase, it can be made a lot simpler and more comfortable with the comprehensive training offered by a franchisor. CEFA’s training program is effective and engaging, and most importantly, covers everything you need to know in order to be successful!
You can have immediate access to help
When you start a business you are bound to have tons of questions, they’ll likely range in complexity, and some of the answers you’re looking for may not be within the quick reach of Google. In franchising, between the partner company and the community of Franchise Partners you’ve got a support system that’s always there to assist and guide your growth. CEFA Franchise Partners enjoy participating in a collaborative network of owners where help is always available!
Franchising is a fantastic way to enter the world of entrepreneurship and maintain independence while still having access to support. We love fostering our Franchise Partners success and providing a toolkit that compliments their passion, intention, and hard work so that we can all better serve our children and our communities.
