What makes up a good franchise location?
A feature on Franchising.ph notes the following as what franchisors look for in a place to set up store. Your representatives from Merry Mango will more than likely check on these:
- Zoning: First an foremost, your business should be allowed in the municipality or city you're planning to set up your kiosk in to get the necessary business permits.
- Accessibility: Is your location easy to visit? Is it accessible to public and private transportation? Does it have available and ample parking? Are the roads surrounding it easily reachable?
- Visibility: Franchisors won't approve locations that can't be immediately seen by customers, as this will result in low foot traffic and bad sales.
- Neighborhood development: Franchisors will also look at the surrounding area of the proposed location. Are there schools? Subdivisions? Malls? Parks? Is the area thriving, or is it on the decline?
- Utilities: Does the location have great access to water, electricity, sewage, and communication connections such as phone and internet lines?
- Competing outlets: A bit of competition is always good because that means business in your area of choice is thriving. And while it may be a bit harder to get customers as people have more to choose from, think of it this way—at least you and your crew will be more motivated to offer better service.
