Is Franchising FOR YOU? Janine Allis, Executive Director, Retail Zoo

T

here have been a number of articles written on franchising over the years, some positive and others negative. With the challenges in retail over the last few years, mainly in the fashion sector, once again people are questioning the merits of being a part of a franchise network. It is undeniable and research has proven that being part of a franchise gives you a greater chance of success than starting your own business, but it does not give you a guaranteed ticket to success, which is where I think some people make the mistake when getting into a franchise business. They look at franchised business and some think, ‘it will run itself, that is why I am paying a royalty, I will have it as an investment like a property.’ This attitude is a fast track to losing the money you have put into the business. Franchising, like any other business, needs your total focus and commitment to make it work. So why does a franchise give you a better chance of success? There are a number of reasons and these reasons only work for the good, solid franchises. Below are some positives and negatives of a franchise business and what you should be looking for if you are looking at getting into a franchise business or you have a franchise and want to know how to improve this business: 1. They (the franchisor) should have a proven business model that has proven to be profitable over a long period of time: You need to do an enormous amount of research on the business you are considering and just because it is associated with some sort of business group or council does not mean it is a good business.

Many of these groups can be joined by simply paying a fee. 2. Group buying power: Being a part of a franchise means you get buying power that an individual business could not get. This includes everything from raw ingredients as well as media buying power. 3. Branding and marketing: If you are an individual business, the chances are you would not be able to hire a marketing department and if you can, it is highly likely you would not have too much money left over to do any marketing. Again, the dollars that you put into marketing can go significantly further if you are pooling your money. 4. Network strength: Sometimes running your own business can seem quite lonely. Being a part of a network enables you to network with people who are in the exact same business. With that

11


Janine Allis

network you will find people who have various strengths that can be of assistance. 5. Support from the franchisor: The best franchise businesses will have business consultants who assist you with your business. Their role is twofold - the first is to help you generally in business and keep you up to date with the latest marketing and business initiatives from the franchisor. The second part of their job is to protect the brand for the rest of the network, and this does include ensuring that the business owners are following the systems and marketing initiatives that have been put in place. As a franchisee, you want to make sure that the brand that you have

12

invested in is always represented as you would expect it to. The greatest risk you face is if there are rogue franchisees that do not follow the systems and put the whole network at risk. Joining a franchise is not for everyone, and there are risks in any business that you may need to consider. If you really want to run your own show and not follow a system then it is probably better to follow your own path. The advantages are that you are not paying a royalty and will have more flexibility in how you run a business. But whatever path you take, make sure you always are accountable for your own business. Paying royalties does not mean that it gives you an excuse to

blame someone else for your business not going well. The power of success is accountability; success or failure always depends on you, the business person, taking accountability for your business. When choosing a business for you, make sure it is something you love, because you will spend most of your waking day either in it or thinking about it.

Listen to your customers, you may actually learn something We get asked all the time, why is Boost Juice booming and why did the other 36 plus juice bars that started 10 years ago disappear? There is not one answer.


is franchising for you?

However, there is an overall philosophy that we believe gives you a better chance to thrive. It is really simple; find out what your customer wants and give it to them! How hard is that? You know what? It’s a great statement but very few businesses truly subscribe to the theory. We never saw Boost as a money making machine. I didn’t even take a wage for the first few years, I was just so petrified of failing and losing everything. You know the saying, ‘four out of five businesses fail in the first five years’, and I did not want to be one of them. So, we listened to our customers, we asked them every chance we could. Sure our product was different; but what else did they want that we could give them? These questions, along with a hundred others, we asked ourselves and our customers. It ended up being pretty simple; just a little love and making our customers feel just that little bit better. I wanted our service to be ten times better than any other retailer. Today, with 300 stores around the world and three other brands that we are growing, we do not always get it right. In fact, we have made dozens (if not hundreds) of mistakes, but we continue to attack ourselves and be passionate about achieving the ‘Holy retail grail’ of consistently achieving amazing customer service. So, we asked our customers. We put a sign up in every store asking our customers to email me personally if we did not deliver the product and service that we said we would. We called the customers by their names not a number, we thanked them for continuing to come back with the 11th one free. We are genuine; we listen to what our customers have to say, we reply within 24 hours of every bit of feedback, we continue to attack ourselves everyday... that’s why we are still here.

There are two key points I believe you could take out of this article and put to use today. Firstly, you must have a curious mind and find out what your customers really want. If you don’t really care to find out, then join the majority of people in management positions in companies in Australia today! Fair chance though, since you are still reading this you do care. There will be a number of key reasons in your business why your customers are getting either a great or poor customer experience. Find out quickly what they are and fix them. If your staff are happy and you have the right attitude towards your staff then they can make your customers happy. Make sure there is an avenue (or many) for the customer to tell you that they are not happy or what you are doing right and when they do, get back to them fast and fix it. Do all the people in your business (whether staff or franchisees) understand your philosophy on customers? If not - fix it. Ask yourself “Is our receptionist outstanding?” “How do we measure the store experience for the customer?” “What are the penalties for not achieving our benchmark?” “What is the single

catch phrase that can best encompass your business?” For Boost Juice it is ‘Love Life’ and ‘having everyone that comes to a Boost store, to leave feeling just a little bit better.’ The truth is no matter how good that smoothie is, if the team member on the register is in a narky mood and gives poor service, then that smoothie just won’t taste quite as good as it should. The second critical take out is that you must be a vigorous leader to make sure it’s not just another ‘company value’ that gets stuck in the top draw and forgotten about; the vigour to care, the vigour to put measures in place, the vigour to have the courage to confront and expel poor experiences and banish them from your business. It can’t be that hard right? Well, that great saying comes back again ‘If it was easy, everyone could do it’. You just need to care enough to get it right! Janine Allis, Managing Director Retail Zoo P: 03 9508 4400 E: aussiefranchising@boostjuicebars.com W: www.boostjuice.com.au W: www.salsas.com.au

So in a practical sense for your business, set your standard at a high (achievable) level that you think is right for your business then get angry and fix it when it’s not met. You could be a gun sales rep but if the gateway to your sales is through a receptionist that had a bad weekend and is just grumpy, you are behind the 8-ball before you even start.

An Overview Of

Franchising IN AUSTRALIA

By Corina Vucic, Director, FC Business Solutions

F

ranchising has helped make the business dreams of more than 70,000 Australians come true since the first ‘golden arches’ of the McDonald’s burger empire crossed the Pacific and began to appear on our suburban landscape in the early 1970s. Australia now has around 1200 franchise systems, and with more franchising outlets per capita than the USA, the original home of franchising, Australia is now known as the ‘Franchising Capital of the World’. Originally all about food – in particular U.S styled burgers and fried chicken - franchising has grown to include practically every type of product and service imaginable and our home-grown concepts account for around 90 per cent of the franchise market. Franchising has many advantages over independent business ownership because it allows franchisees to own their own business without being totally ‘alone’. A good franchisor will form a partnership with the franchisee and provide them with all the systems, support and training required to ensure both their businesses flourish. Research shows that franchises are more likely to succeed than independent small business. The Griffith University Franchising in Australia report (2012) showed that, post GFC, the franchising sector shifted into economic recovery sooner than the general small business sector, with sales turnover for the entire franchising sector estimated at $131 billion. The sector has certainly grown over the past two decades and now almost 400,000 Australians are employed directly in franchising. I’m proud to say that I have been able to contribute to this figure

through my own business FC Business Solutions that originated in Melbourne in the late 1990s as ‘Franchise Careers’, an employment agency dedicated to the franchising sector. The business saw the need for further services in this rapidly growing industry and we have since branched out to provide franchisee training, franchise system development, PR & Marketing, and a range of services that are designed to ‘help franchises grow’.

The 2nd great Australian Dream. For many Australians, owning and operating their own business is the fulfilment of a lifelong dream. Franchising, with its proven low-risk/high chance of success formula, offers ‘anybody’ the opportunity to ‘be your own boss’. No matter what your work background is, or qualifications are, there is a franchise system to suit your finances, family, skills and lifestyle. Buying a franchise is one of the most important personal and financial decisions you are likely to make in your lifetime. If you have the desire, commitment, passion, resources and support required, you must take the time required to find the best franchise system for you. When you are ‘shopping’ for a franchise system the most important question to ask yourself is: “Is it a proven system?” A proven system is one that achieves franchising’s ‘holy grail’: brand awareness. Once a system becomes a ‘household name’ you know that it is proven and in Australia we are fortunate to have many home-grown examples. Think: La Porchetta,

15


Corina Vucic

Brazilian Butterfly, Boost Juice, Quest Serviced Apartments, Hairhouse Warehouse, Forty Winks, the list goes on and on. The franchisor of a proven system runs a successful business model, provides all the training and support that the franchisee requires, assists with financial and business management, provides marketing and public relations to support the franchisee and provides the leadership and mentoring to ensure he or she is equipped with all the tools to succeed. Even a ‘new’ franchise system can be ‘proven’. It is one where the franchisor has already established its own successful core business, then branched out with a couple of ‘company owned’ test franchises to ensure all the systems and support are in place and the financial data adds up before offering them for sale. The Griffith University Study found that most successful systems were ‘piloted’ for four years before they began

16

franchising. But what makes a franchise system different from an independent business? Some things are the same e.g. in retail, the location is vital. Across all businesses, customer service is always paramount, and the business owner must have the drive and motivation to want to make sure his or her business is a success. There are however some areas, provided by a good franchisor, that separate independent business from franchises: • Training programs • Marketing and Public Relations Support • Manuals and Procedures

Training programs It makes sense for franchisors to invest heavily in their training programs for franchisees. Motivating individuals helps achieve business success. People Development, in the areas of OHS and risk management, recruitment,

performance and management skills, is vital for the successful growth of a business. The Franchisee Induction Program (FIP) is key to franchise success because it ‘inducts’ franchisees into the system and helps them to run their business consistently and continuously. As far as induction training goes, there is a need to balance theory and practice in a meaningful timeframe. Many of the systems we work with incorporate additional qualifications such as Certificate IV in Business or Retail into their induction training programs. Does the franchise system you are interested in employ field service personnel such as franchise support managers (FSMs) to ensure franchisees are staying on track with their business plan and receiving all the training and support they need? A quality franchise system should be continually looking at different ways for franchisees and staff to increase their performance in a measurable way.


AN OVERVIEW OF FRANCHISING IN AUSTRALIA

Excessive staff turnover can cost companies dearly. But by focussing on staff engagement and providing staff with the training and tools to engage and empower them, retention rates are able to be increased. All highly successful franchisors are leaders who promote respect and integrity within their teams and throughout the brand. They set the path; share the end destination and make the best decision at the right time with the best information. This is leadership. They have taken on the responsibility to grow a business, to expand the product or service offering, to increase market share and to increase brand awareness. Successful franchisors are not shy in sharing their plans with the team members who choose to live and breathe their vision. The level of leadership differs amongst the franchise network; some require the detail, the how, when and where; others require just the overall perspective and are committed to the cause. The franchisor’s responsibility is to deliver all these needs and continue to share the message in all available learning and development forums on a regular basis throughout the network.

Marketing and Public Relations support Building and maintaining brand awareness is vital to a franchise system’s growth and positioning in the marketplace and for it to be considered a ‘proven system’. A sustained PR, Marketing and Communications program will assist businesses’ growth and success through targeted and tailored brand building solutions including advertising, media relations, local area marketing, internal and external communications strategies. Potential franchisees should be looking at what the system they are interested in does in relation to targeted PR and Marketing solutions and if their internal and external communication strategies, local area marketing and advertising campaigns, have been proven to demonstrate measurable results from increased sales figures, and media coverage.

Manuals and procedures

franchising can be extremely satisfying.

What does a franchisor actually own if there are no documented standards and procedures?

You might hit some obstacles along the way and disputes between franchisees and franchisors keeps a whole sector of the legal profession employed. According to the Griffith University Study around 19 per cent of franchisors have had a dispute with at least one of their franchisees and the main cause of disputes, comes down to franchisee compliance, franchise fees, territorial issues and profitability. The best way to avoid this happening all comes back to your research and due diligence in the first place. Do you know exactly what you are getting yourself into? Have you carefully read, and had a legal representative read the Franchise Agreement?

Compliance with operational standards and procedures usually forms a key part of the Franchise Agreement. It would be very difficult for a new franchisee to succeed in their business without proven standards and procedures. A quality system will have a comprehensive, well written set of Operations Manuals for its franchise network. Operations Manuals contain the details of the proper procedures and provide an invaluable support mechanism for franchisee education at all levels. As training tools, effective Operations Manuals promote consistency and quality throughout the franchise network. They help franchisees run their businesses more successfully. When properly drafted, Operations Manuals can serve as one of the strongest selling tools for the franchise program as they demonstrate best practice in franchising to current and potential franchisees. Potential franchisees should be confident that the system’s Operations Manuals are up to date, reflecting new products, services, changes in market trends, technologies and competitive forces.

The next step? Having conducted your due diligence, selected your franchise and started on your new pathway, the satisfaction of being a franchisee can be exhilarating. If you are prepared to work hard, committed to following the system that you have invested in, embrace the training, support and mentoring available, and if you manage your back office (financials) in a professional manner, then you will give yourself every opportunity to succeed and grow. Like any business, it will be demanding, however, knowing you have the ongoing support of the franchisor, together with their internal knowledge and experience, as well as many supportive franchisees that are on the same life journey,

You may also discover a whole new world of business opportunities which may see you expand to become a multiunit franchisee, a regional franchisor or master franchisor. Multi-unit franchising, particularly in retail, was identified as an emerging trend in the industry, with two thirds of the 1180 franchisees in Australia in 2012 having multi-unit franchisees in their systems. There’s no doubt that once you embark on your journey into franchising you will become part of a wider community, the Australian franchise community. You will meet some amazing people along the way and discover a whole world that you previously may not have known existed. Your vocabulary will expand significantly with a whole range of new terms and acronyms will roll off your tongue with surprising ease! So if you’ve done your due diligence, signed the FA (Franchise Agreement) with your franchisor who is a member of the FCA (Franchise Council of Australia), completed your FIP (Franchisee Induction Program) and have met your FSM (Franchise Support Manager) – good luck with your new business and I hope to meet you somewhere down the track!

Franchise

Business Plans are worthless without monitoring

Jason Gehrke, Director, Franchise Advisory Centre

E

verybody knows that business plans are essential to prepare for the future success of a business. Bankers know this. Accountants know this. Governments know this. Franchisors know this. The person in the street knows this. And yet many people who start in business for themselves as franchisees or independent operators who also know this, choose not to prepare a business plan. So why acknowledge that a business plan is necessary, and then fail to produce one? The reason is surprisingly simple – nobody checks them. Without a business plan, a bank is unlikely to lend the funds to start up a new venture. However, if a borrower has more than enough real estate or other security to back the loan, a bank may not look too closely at the details of the plan, let alone hold the borrower accountable to its performance (until of course it’s time to call in the loan). Accountants are trusted advisors who are primarily called upon to reconcile what we spend with our tax obligations to the government. This is a necessary but rearward-looking service. It concentrates on what we have done, not what we will do. By definition, a business plan is the stated objectives of an organisation. It is what it will do. Accountants are great for looking backwards, but only the

potential business owner themselves can have the best insight into what their future will look like. Governments love business plans. The website www.business.gov.au has terrific resources available online, free to potential business start-ups to help them plan their new ventures. Governments love business plans because the more planning that goes into a new venture, the less likely it is to fail (with all the social and economic problems that flow from business failure that governments are expected to somehow fix). Franchisors love business plans because franchisees increasingly need to complete them as part of the recruitment process. Often though, these plans are based on little or no meaningful information because the franchisor doesn’t want to make any representations to induce the franchisee into buying the franchise for fear of being sued later. So potential franchisees put together business plans that might have unrealistic sales projections, inaccurate cost assumptions, and which generally will be limited in their value to either franchisee or franchisor. Finally, the potential small business intender themselves knows the importance of the business plan, but puts one together only to meet a requirement of the bank, the franchisor or both, and then never looks at it again. And why do they never look at it again?

Jason Gehrke

Because most of it was irrelevant to start with. A typical business plan by a franchisee regurgitates a lot of general information about the franchise itself, especially the operational aspects of the business which are detailed at length in the franchisor’s operations manual. Likewise the market information, products and services, etc, will also be outlined in the franchisor’s operations manuals and materials. So a franchisee’s business plan should really concentrate on that which will be different for their business in their location, and this comes down to competition, the different quantities of products or services they are going to sell as a result of how well they are promoted, and at a cost and on terms that will allow the franchisee to be profitable.

This leads to the relationship that exists between the following core business plan elements: 1. The Marketing Plan;

For an independent business owner, this may only be considered after a detailed assessment of the market, the competition, and the choice of governing strategy to deal with competitive challenges.

2. The Sales Mix Forecast; 3. The Cashflow Forecast; 4. The Profit & Loss Statement.

The Marketing Plan The Marketing Plan is the schedule of promotions that is designed to stimulate sales. Under this definition, simply being open for business may stimulate sales, however this is usually considered an operational necessity and not a marketing innovation (however some business owners fail to make this distinction and expect customers to flock to them simply by opening their doors).

At its simplest, a marketing plan outlines what activity will be undertaken when, targetting who, and at what cost, to stimulate sales.

In a franchise, the choice of governing strategy has already been determined by the franchisor, and after taking local competitor and market factors into account, the franchisee should be able to concentrate on deploying the franchisor’s pre-approved marketing tactics in their plan. An extract from a marketing plan for a retail outlet might include community newspaper advertising, as show in Table 1. The marketing plan needs to be as detailed as possible, allowing for multiple simultaneous marketing activities (rather than the solo sample of community newspaper advertising shown here). Many franchisees fail to make the connection between a marketing plan and sales. Some expect that the franchisor’s brand alone is enough to attract customers but fail to understand that by applying their own efforts to augment the power of the franchisor’s brand, their sales could increase exponentially. Where franchisees rely only on the franchisor’s brand to attract customers, this is known as ‘free-riding’. Franchisees who free-ride generally fail to capitalise on the potential of their franchise, resulting in poor financial outcomes and lower overall satisfaction with their investment than franchisees who actively engage with the brand to conduct their own marketing activities.

The sample extract from a retail sales mix forecast shown in Table 2 shows the predicted sales of kitchen organisers from the opening of the store until the end of June. Sales start well during the opening promotions, then taper off before more than doubling in April during the Mother’s Day promotions, and easing back during May and June. This item would be linked to the sample marketing plan extract from Table 1, showing the clear relationship between inclusion of the item in the Mother’s Day promotions, and the higher sales in April and May. Notice also that the item has had a special price applied in April to attract customers to the store in anticipation that they will buy other items during the same visit. A similar forecast would be created for each other product or service offered by the business. Where there are a

large number of products or services, these may be grouped into categories for ease of reference (eg. kitchenware, bathroomware, etc) in the sales mix forecast and for linkage to the marketing plan.

of the increase slows dramatically at the end of May, when the business starts paying rent at the end of the rent-free period (negotiated with the landlord as an incentive for the business to occupy that particular location).

A cash flow forecast helps a business identify its future cash surpluses and shortfalls so that it can ensure it is capable of paying its bills on time and meeting its future required cash outlays (such as staff wages, for example).

As a general rule, businesses which deal with consumers will have stronger cash flows than businesses whose customers are other businesses. This is because consumers will generally pay at the point of purchase of the product or service, whereas business customers often prefer payment terms from seven to 30 days, or longer. Deferred payment for goods sold, or services performed, can strain a business’ cash flow while it continues to pay its ongoing obligations for rent, staff wages and other costs in the meantime.

In the sample cash flow forecast in Table 3, the retail business operates on a cash-flow positive basis. In other words, at the end of each month, its bank balance increases. However, the rate

Additionally, seasonal variations in demand impact a business’ cash flow for better and for worse, and may require planning by the business owner to deal with most effectively.

The Cash Flow Forecast Businesses that are profitable can still go to the wall without sufficient cash flow. This is one of the most important lessons for any business owner, and sometimes learned the hard way.

The Profit & Loss Statement Finally there is the Profit and Loss (P&L) statement. Unlike the the cash flow forecast which predicts the business’ bank balance at any given point in time, the profit and loss statement identifies the anticipated surplus or shortfall of the enterprise at the end of a specific period. For many Australian business owners, the annual P&L after the end of the financial year is less a measure of success, and more of an inconvenience to comply with tax reporting obligations. But the P&L is important nonetheless. It provides a snapshot of business performance, and shows clearly whether or not the owner is making money, or digging a nasty hole for themselves.

While the snapshot in this example shows only five months of trading, it provides a positive indicator to future performance and the likelihood of success for this venture. It also demonstrates the ability to identify relationships between key items. For example, rent over the period can be calculated as a percentage of sales. Likewise, staff costs can also be calculated as a percentage of sales, and other expenses too. This creates performance benchmarks that allow the business owner and their advisors to identify deviating performance when ratios move outside expected tolerances (for example when a business becomes overstaffed, forcing its wages costs outside the acceptable benchmark range). And this is why business plans are so important. Because if we don’t measure the performance of a business against a plan, we may as well not bother to create a plan at all. And without a plan, how can a business expect to be successful? Monitoring the business’ performance against the business plan is the same as regularly checking a map or GPS when

undertaking a long road journey. Although primary responsibility for this monitoring belongs to the business owner, franchisors should also be monitoring their franchisees’ performance against their plans, and using the benefit of the collective knowledge of the network, advise and guide a franchisee back on track if they begin to stray from their plan. This guidance may even extend to suggesting modifications to the plan even before the business starts, to ensure that it is realistic in its expectations for sales, costs, and cash flow. A good business plan that is constantly reviewed against the performance of the business is essential to the success of any franchisee. A plan that is not realistic and not monitored against the business’ performance may only serve to provide a false sense of security right up to the point where the business becomes insolvent.

What makes a successful

Franchisee? Greg Nathan, Founder, Franchise Relationships Institute (FRI)

B

efore answering the question “What makes a successful franchisee?� we need to define success.

In the franchise relationship, where everyone shares a brand, franchisee success needs to be viewed more broadly than whether or not the franchisee is profitable. While a franchisee that is not profitable will of course fail, a franchisee who consistently delivers a poor customer experience is likely to damage the reputation of their own business and the broader brand. Also a franchisee who is rebellious or continually in conflict with the franchisor will create a host of performance problems for themselves and others. For these reasons, at the Franchise Relationships Institute, we define a successful franchisee as someone who performs well in the following three key areas. 1. They maximise their profitability. This means they work hard to control costs and drive sales. There is no other way to maximise profit. 2. They deliver an excellent customer experience every time. This enables them to build a base of loyal, happy customers who will recommend the brand and their business to others.

Now we are clear on what success means, let’s discuss how franchisees can achieve it.

3. They participate constructively in the franchise network. Another name for this is being a good franchise citizen. This means working in a collaborative spirit with the franchisor and other franchisees.

We have been researching this question for 20 years and have found that high performing franchisees share a number of behaviours and attitudes that contribute to their success. For convenience we have combined these into five broad areas.

23


Greg Nathan

Members of the franchisor team can also be valuable supporters, as can be key suppliers. A constructive working relationship with these people means they will be more inclined to go out of their way to support the franchisee when help is needed. Of course the most important group of all are customers. Without their advocacy and continuing support there is nothing. In a world where people are increasingly purchasing products and services online, the franchisee’s ability to build a loyal customer base is more important than ever.

They Engage with the Brand There is a traditional story about three bricklayers working on a building. One is cranky and miserable, one is working quietly and efficiently, and one is whistling, clearly enjoying his work. A young boy, fascinated by the different demeanours of the three men, asks what they are doing. “I’m laying bricks, what does it look like!” growls the first man. The second man glances over at the boy while continuing to work. “I’m building a wall, but I can’t talk as I need to get it finished.” The third man puts down his trowel, kneels down to the boy’s level and says with a smile, “I’m building a hospital so that if you ever get sick you’ll have somewhere that will help you get well again.” Years later the boy, inspired by this brief encounter with the third man, becomes a bricklayer.

They Build Supporters Life is a team activity and those who learn to play well with others are the winners. Successful franchisees work at gaining the support and commitment from the people on whom their business depends. For instance, the most important job of a franchisee who employs staff is to build their capability and inculcate in them a commitment to treat the business with

24

the same care as they would if it were their own. Our research has also shown the support of family and an extended network of well-wishers also plays a critical role in a franchisee’s success. We called this Family and Social Support. The more a franchisee has the support of family, friends, colleagues and mentors, the more successful their business will be.

Successful franchisees show a high level of pride and enthusiasm for their business and their work. This is called Brand Passion. Our research has shown franchisees with high levels of Brand Passion not only make more money, deliver better service and contribute more to their franchise community, but they report being 35 per cent more satisfied as a franchisee. The more a franchisee engages with the franchise brand, embraces its values,


What makes a successful franchisee?

and tells other people how great it is not just in words but in the tone of their voice - the more successful they will be.

They Drive Growth A man bought a donkey for a very good price. Wanting to keep the maintenance costs to a minimum, he set about feeding the donkey a little less every day, until eventually he was pleased with himself as he had the donkey’s rations down to nothing at all. At this point the donkey died. There is a saying, ‘You cannot save yourself into prosperity.’ The unfortunate truth is that costs are going to continue to rise and, while basic cost control must be a vital part of every franchisee’s focus, if sales are not rising at least by the same amount as costs, the business will be going backwards. To drive growth franchisees need to be comfortable promoting their business in the local community. They also need to take responsibility for setting goals and taking action to achieve results, rather than expecting their franchisor will somehow do this for them.

They Maintain Personal Vitality One of the fundamental ingredients for success in small business, and indeed life in general, is vitality. Many franchisees work long hours and say that running their business is emotionally exhausting. Franchisees thus need to maintain good physical and mental health and have the ability to address the inevitable day to day problems associated with running a business. When we feel full of vitality and have that spring in our step, problems are more likely to appear as challenges to be overcome. However, when our vitality is low, even the simplest business hassle is likely to get under our skin.

They Master What Matters While delivering products, looking after customers and paying accounts are

important, these operational aspects of a business will not guarantee success. Franchisees need to raise themselves out of these day to day issues and focus on the bigger picture, regularly asking questions like: • Why did I buy this business? • What is the most important thing I need to focus on to guarantee the growth of this business? • How can I ensure my team will continue to perform at their best when I am not there to supervise them? • How can I use this business to help me achieve what I want in life? One of the characteristics of the most successful franchisees in our research was they were working full-time, mainly overseeing their business – in other words, working ‘on their business’. The best performing franchisees also said one of the top three things they valued from their franchisor were systems they could use to help them run their business more efficiently.

To ‘Master What Matters’ franchisees need to have routines for measuring Key Indicators that tell them if their business is on track for success or not, similar to a pilot’s use of navigation tools to check they are heading in the right direction. They also need to have written systems in place so all staff understand what they are supposed to do, when they are supposed to do it, and to what standard they are required to do it to. In summary there are many factors that make a successful franchisee. While a good franchise system is important, the best system in the world can only deliver success if the franchisee also builds supporters, engages with their brand, drives growth, maintains personal vitality and masters what matters.

veryone wants to sell you a franchise but is it the right deal for you?

Buying a franchise is a significant investment and it is a contractual commitment. You are usually locking in to a five to ten year agreement - so the personal, financial and legal factors need to be right for you now and over that entire period. Franchising laws in Australia are relatively strong and provide for high levels of disclosure by franchisors. This certainly helps a buyer but there are many other factors to investigate and weigh up as part of your due diligence process. So what is due diligence? Many people think it is getting advice from your lawyer or accountant on what they think of the business and what terms should be negotiated. This is only part of the process and sometimes it can also steer you in the wrong direction. Franchising is a specialist field and many accountants and lawyers do not specialise in franchising and therefore are not familiar with the issues, trends, players and full range of considerations. Would you get your local doctor to perform heart surgery? No! So the same applies when buying a franchised business, use a specialist. A good specialist will work with you to understand your objectives, your strengths and weaknesses and your exit plan, then they will interrogate a range of issues to ensure the fundamentals of the industry, the franchise and your local territory area all align to your objectives and your risk and financial appetite. It is important for you to be clear on your own motivation and objectives before you start digging into the details of the specific franchise.

As part of your due diligence process on a specific target franchise, here are 20 areas I suggest you consider:

1

What are the industry conditions?

• Over the next five to ten years will this be a stable or growth industry? • What are the likely changes to customer buying habits or technology? • Who are the new competitors likely to be and how will they tackle the market? • Is demand for the products / services sustainable and what will happen to profit margins?

2

Where is this franchise placed in that industry?

• How strong is the brand and business relative to competitors? • Is the franchise predator or prey in any changing market?

3

Who is the franchisor?

• What is the structure of the franchise? Are master franchisees involved? • Who owns the franchise or who are the key decision makers? Have you met them? What do you think of them? • What experience or track record of success does the franchisor have? • Is the franchisor financially stable?

4

Are the existing franchisees making money?

• Look at the financial performance of existing franchisees. Reluctance to disclose details can be a warning sign, it is possible to disclose without identifying specific locations. • What are the trends in franchisee performance – improving or declining? • For start-up franchises, what earnings forecasts are being provided and what are the underlying assumptions and data that make those forecasts credible?

5

Is there a strong resale market for the franchises?

• How many existing franchises are on the market (publically and privately) – a high percentage of listings may be a warning sign that franchisees are looking to get out. • What prices are they achieving for resales? Are they making capital gains or losses? • How long is it taking to sell the franchises? • Have any closed down or been terminated? If so, why?

28

6

What is the investment required to buy in and set up?

• What is the total cost of buying the business, including fitouts, equipment, vehicles, training fees, launch marketing budgets, rental bonds and working capital? • Within the total cost, what is the actual franchise license fee and how does that compare to competitor offerings? • What is the expected payback period on your total investment?

7

Are there franchise Territories?

• Are you granted a territory or is it a ‘hunt anywhere’ model? • With any territory, what type of territory? Full exclusivity? Marketing exclusivity? Lead allocation exclusivity?

needs to be done to reinvigorate or relaunch it?

10

Where do the leads or customers come from?

• Who is responsible for generating leads or customers? • Does the franchisor guarantee any lead flow or quality of leads? • What methods are usually successful for lead generation? • Is there a group marketing fund? If yes, how does it work and how much do you pay? • Can you generate online leads via your own website or social media activity?

11

What is the cashflow cycle?

• How are the territories determined? What criteria were used to ensure they are viable, correctly sized and provide you with market depth that enables your target profitability over time?

• Understand the lead time between marketing and cash in your bank account.

8

• What level of bad debts should you expect?

Who does the set up?

• If you are buying a shop or retail based franchise, who handles the site selection, fitout and lease negotiation? • If it is the franchisee, what guidance or support are you given? • If it is the franchisor, how much extra are they charging to do it for you and do they receive any rebates or kickbacks from tradesmen or equipment suppliers? • Who holds the site lease, you or the franchisor? Do you understand the implications of each?

9

How is your business launched?

• Is there a launch marketing program? If so, what is involved and what is the budget?

• How do most customers pay – cash, eftpos, on trading terms?

• Will this business generate money quickly or does it build up over time?

12

Who controls the flow of money?

• Who do the customers pay? You, the franchisor or a nominated supplier? • If you are to be paid commissions by the franchisor, are they reliable and solvent?

13

What are the ongoing royalties or fees to participate?

• Industry norm is royalties in the 6 per cent to 9 per cent range for standard retail and service franchises.

• What input do you get to the program?

• If it is a flat fee royalty, find out what motivation the franchisor has to help you grow.

• If buying an existing franchise, what

• Are there any other fees that apply?


20 Due Diligence Considerations for Buying a Franchise

14

What services does the franchisor provide?

• Get a clear understanding of who does what and what ongoing services you receive from the franchisor. Also understand the value of such services and weigh up against the royalty charge. • Most franchisors provide the brand, the system, the back end support and product. Others also provide marketing and business development support.

15

What training is provided?

• Most franchisors provide training but how good is it – speak to existing franchisees. • Is there an extra charge for training, can you bring your staff? • What is the cost of any subsequent training?

16

Who are the suppliers and are there any rebates paid?

• Disclosed rebates are legal but you should understand who gets what and from whom. • Some franchisors either refuse rebates or if they take them, reinvest them in the franchise network – how does your franchisor handle it and why?

17

D oes the franchisor impose any restrictions?

• Investigate restrictions relating to the website, social media and blogs. Often for brand protection purposes a franchisor will impose restrictions – you need to know what they are. • Who owns the customer database? Are the customers really yours? • Do you have to buy your stock or products from a specific supplier? • Are you subject to performance requirements?

18

What is not in the Franchise Agreement that should be?

• Franchise documents are prepared by lawyers for the franchisor so they are designed to protect the franchisor. Therefore you need to ask “for my own protection, what is missing?” • There is a Special Provisions section in the Agreement – here you can agree to insert non-standard or customised terms for your situation or deal. • If there are any critical representations that you believe the franchisor or vendor has made, being so significant they have influenced your decision to buy, then make sure these representations are documented in the agreement or are noted on any certificates they ask you to sign about representations or advice given or received.

19

W hat do existing franchisees say about the business?

• Advocacy by existing or previous franchisees is a critical factor – if they are happy with their decision to buy and happy with the relationship they have with the franchisor, then this is usually a good indicator you will be too. • Run Google searches of the franchise name and search for any franchisee blogs or comments as occasionally disgruntled franchisees take to social media to vent their dissatisfaction – it is not always justified criticism but building a picture of professional and amateur PR always helps.

20

What do franchise experts and banks says about the business?

• Talk to franchise experts and franchise bankers about the franchise system – see what they know and say as they are often tapped into both the good and the bad news relating to different franchises. Being arm’s length they can give impartial

feedback or guidance that will help your investigation and decision making. • Also, some franchise systems have accreditation arrangements with various banks. Whilst this is not a bank endorsement, it usually indicates the bank has been through a due diligence process itself to understand the working and success rates of that franchise and are happy enough to lend to their franchisees. The above 20 considerations are not an exhaustive list but they will help you make a more informed purchase decision and they will help you negotiate the purchase terms. We always recommend you obtain specialist help to conduct your due diligence as it is not just about asking the right questions, it is also about knowing what to do with the answers and how to weigh up the overall personal, financial and legal considerations that make up your ultimate decision on whether or not to buy. No business is perfect and no deal is perfect, so it is about getting the right balance and terms for you based on the risk / reward equation.

Franchising AND THE LAW

Marwan Kojok, Managing Partner, Baybridge Lawyers Bianca Sevastos, Senior Associate, Baybridge Lawyers

F

ranchising, as a business model, has proven to be enormously successful across the globe and particularly in Australia where, according to a recent Griffith University study, we have witnessed net growth in franchise systems of 15 per cent since 2010. Some might argue that one of the factors for the continuing success of franchising in Australia is the enactment of specific and compulsory legislation that governs the relationship between franchisors and franchisees and that work in conjunction with laws that apply to all Australian businesses in general. Australia is one of only a handful of countries which has enacted such laws. The key pieces of legislation that relate to franchising in Australia are: • the Franchising Code of Conduct (the Code); • laws relating to fair trading and business operations, primarily the Competition and Consumer Act 2010 (Cth) (the CCA), the Australian Consumer Law (ACL); the Australian Securities and Investment Commission Act 2001 and the Corporations Act 2001; and • Common Law.

THE FRANCHISING CODE OF CONDUCT Since the Code was first introduced as a mandatory industry code in 1998 with the purpose of “regulat[ing] the conduct of participants

in franchising towards other participants in franchising,” it has undergone several revisions and amendments. In 2013, a further extensive review was undertaken by Mr Alan Wein with a number of recommendations made to “improve upon what is already a robust model” by mandating best practice and simplifying regulation to ensure less red tape and to provide clarity in compliance requirements. Of the 18 recommendations made in the Wein Report, the Government has accepted, or accepted in principle, the vast majority of the recommendations. With the recent change in Government, it is yet to be determined when such recommendations will be implemented. Notwithstanding, below is a summary of the most significant outcomes of the Government’s responses to the Wein Report:

31


Marwan Kojok & Bianca Sevastos Disclosure The Government has accepted that the current disclosure requirements create unnecessary “red tape” in certain multilevel systems. Foreign franchisors will now be required to provide short form Disclosure Documents only and will not be required to update their Disclosure Documents on an annual basis. This amendment to the Code will likely result in lower compliance costs for foreign franchisors and will perhaps motivate more foreign franchisors to establish networks in Australia.

Online Sales Over the past five years, technological advancements have played a significant role in today’s society and the way we do business. More importantly, the worldwide web has become a further sales channel that is clearly here to stay. To date the Code has not sufficiently dealt with the changes in technology in respect to online sales. As a consequence, the Wein Report recommended to the Government and the Government accepted the recommendation, that franchisors will need to provide additional disclosure in respect to their intention to conduct online sales and the respective rights of the franchisor and franchisee.

Good Faith The concept of “good faith” in franchising has been for some time the cause of much conjecture among the franchising community, with many concerned that its introduction will give rise to uncertainty about its meaning and scope. While the meaning of “good faith” remains somewhat abstract and elusive, the basic principle behind the concept is that stakeholders will act honestly and sincerely in their dealings with each other and that they will not engage in improper or unfair tactics. Following the Wein Report, the Government has now accepted the recommendation that the Code is to be amended to include an express obligation that franchisors and franchisees (and their respective

32

“agents”) act in “good faith” as defined in existing Common Law. This Common Law duty will not apply to all aspects of the franchise agreement, or performance of the Code, and the Government has indicated that it will need to consider further the application of the duty. While it remains to be seen how such obligation will play out in practice and what impact it will have on franchising as an sector, it is clear that stakeholders will need to be educated on what it means to “act in good faith” and how such obligation will apply to “agents”. Doubtless this will mean, at the very least, that stakeholders will need to carefully consider the accuracy of the information given to other parties and to ensure that all material information is fully disclosed.

The implementation of this recommendation reflects the changes in today’s economic environment and will provide greater clarity as to whom will benefit from the online sales.

Marketing Funds The Government accepts that a new approach is warranted for the regulation of marketing funds to ensure greater transparency and that funds collected by franchisors are used for legitimate marketing purposes. A relatively minor amendment has also been made to the auditing requirements of the marketing fund. The current position is that if 75 per cent of franchisees agree that no audit is required then such agreement remains in place for a three year period. The effect of the amendment is such that franchisors will now need to conduct a vote each year.


FRANCHISING AND THE LAW

Risk Statements Recent research from Griffith University shows that many franchisees make the decision to enter into a franchise agreement regardless of the information provided to them. The Government supports Mr Wein’s recommendation that a risk statement should be provided to prospective franchisees as early on as possible “before they are psychologically and emotionally committed to entering into a franchising relationship.” Currently Disclosure Documents contain a risk statement on the front page. The amendment will mean that the following additional statements are to be incorporated into a stand alone document and provided separately to the Disclosure Document. • The need to consider whether the franchise system is a good fit; • The importance of obtaining professional advice from an expert in franchising; • The need to research the franchise system, including talking to current and former franchisees, and to carefully study the Disclosure Document;

• The potential for the franchisee to incur unforeseen capital expenditure; • The risks of franchising generally and any risks specific to the franchise system; • What prospective franchisees should consider before entering into a Franchise Agreement. The risk statement will be required for new franchisees only and not for those franchisees who are renewing, extending, or extending the scope of their Franchise Agreement.

Right to terminate in case of administration Mr Wein recommended that the Code should be amended to provide that either party to a Franchise Agreement may terminate the agreement in the event that the other party is placed into administration and that the administrator fails to turn the business around, or a suitable buyer is not found, within a reasonable time. While the Government accepts in principle Mr Wein’s recommendation, it acknowledges that the implementation

of such recommendation raises complex issues and may impact the access to credit for both franchisors and franchisees and impede the opportunity to sell the business as a going concern. The Code currently contains provisions which allow the franchisor to terminate the Franchise Agreement in the event the franchisee becomes bankrupt, insolvent under administration or an externally-administered body. Some may argue that the implementation of the above recommendation simply provides the franchisee with reciprocal rights. Further, it was recommended that the Code be amended to ensure that franchisees can be made unsecured creditors of the franchisor by apportioning the franchise fee paid under the Franchise Agreement across the term of the Franchise Agreement. The effect of this would mean that any amount apportioned for the remainder of the term would become a debt owed to the franchisee if the agreement ended due to the franchisor’s failure. The Government supports the policy intent of the above recommendation

33


Marwan Kojok & Bianca Sevastos

but acknowledged it will require further consultation with industry experts while considering the impact on insolvency, taxation, contract and franchising law.

Enforcement The Government accepted the recommendation that the Code be amended to provide the ACCC with powers to seek court-ordered civil pecuniary penalties for breaches of the Code. The Wein Report recommended that the maximum penalty of $50,000 should be available as a remedy. The Government is undertaking further consultation as to the appropriate maximum penalty while considering having prescribed penalties for specific breaches of the Code, with the more serious breaches attracting higher penalties. For franchisors, the above amendment means that they will need to ensure that they have strong compliance policies in place and that their employees are educated in respect to such policies.

Restraint of Trade The Government supports the recommendation that the Code is to be amended to state that if certain conditions are satisfied, any restraint of trade clauses in the Franchise Agreement will not be enforceable by

34

the franchisor against the franchisee. This approach is an attempt to balance the rights of the parties at the end of the Franchise Agreement but will only apply to specific circumstances and will not limit the operation of the unwritten law dealing with restraint of trade.

FIVE THINGS TO CONSIDER IN FRANCHISING

Clearly, franchisors will need to carefully consider the provisions within their Franchise Agreements which prohibit their franchisees from carrying on a similar business in competition with the franchisor at the end of the franchise term.

2. Is your brand properly protected?

For franchisors, the implementation of the above amendments to the Code will mean that they will need to carefully review and undertake a significant update of their Franchise Agreements and Disclosure Documents. For franchisees, the changes by and large place an obligation on the franchisor to provide greater transparency in their dealings with the franchisee while also emphasising the requirement that franchisees provide accurate information to the franchisor.

FRANCHISEE

The effect of the above amendments is intended to provide stakeholders with certainty and confidence in the franchising sector, to protect those that need protection but also allow parties the freedom to negotiate generally acceptable commercial agreements.

FRANCHISOR 1. Is your Disclosure Document and Franchise Agreement compliant with the Code?

3. Do you have the appropriate corporate structure? 4. What is your recruitment strategy? 5. Do you have the right advisors and support team around you?

1. Have you conducted proper due diligence on the franchise system and the franchisor? 2. Does the term of the Franchise Agreement match the lease agreement (if applicable)? 3. What are the restraint clauses and how will they impact you? 4. Do you have the right business skills? 5. Will the franchise system suit your lifestyle?

Stewart Germann

FRANCHISING

AND THE LAW in New Zealand

Stewart Germann, Franchise Lawyer, Stewart Germann Law Office

T

here is no franchise-specific legislation in New Zealand so there is no legal definition of a franchise. However, there are existing laws which protect franchisees and the three main laws which give such protection are the Fair Trading Act 1986, the Commerce Act 1986 and the Contractual Remedies Act 1989. Those Acts focus in particular on misrepresentations and restrictive trade practices. There is no mandatory disclosure rĂŠgime in New Zealand but the Franchise Association of New Zealand (FANZ), which was formed in 1996, is the industry body. Many franchisors belong to the FANZ and it currently has approximately 208 members.

Code of Practice The FANZ publishes the Code of Practice and the Code of Ethics and all members must comply with the Codes. The Code of Practice has four main aims as follows: 1. To encourage best practice throughout franchising. 2. To provide reassurance to those entering franchising that any member displaying the logo of the FANZ is serious and has undertaken to practise in a fair and reasonable manner. 3. To provide the basis of self-regulation for franchising. 4. To demonstrate to everyone the positive will within franchising to regulate itself. The Code applies to all members including franchisors, franchisees or affiliates such as accountants, lawyers and consultants, and all prospective new members of the FANZ must

agree to be bound by the Code before they can be considered for membership.

What Does the Code Cover? 1. Compliance - all members must certify that they will comply with the Code and members must renew their certificate of compliance on an annual basis. 2. Disclosure - a Disclosure Document must be provided to all prospective franchisees at least 14 days prior to signing a Franchise Agreement. This Disclosure Document must be updated at least annually and it must provide information including a company profile, details of the officers of the company, an outline of the franchise, listing of all components making up the franchise purchase, references and projections of turnover and possible profitability of the business. 3. Certification - the Code requires franchisors to give franchisees a copy of the Code and the franchisee must then certify that he or she has had legal advice before signing the Franchise Agreement. 4. Cooling Off Period - all Franchise Agreements must contain a minimum seven day period from the date of the agreement during which a franchisee may change their mind and terminate the purchase. This is very important and the cooling off period does not apply to renewals of term or resales by franchisees. 5. Dispute Resolution - the Code sets out a dispute resolution procedure which can be used by both franchisor and franchisee to seek a more amicable and cost-effective solution. The Code requires all members to try to settle disputes by mutual negotiation in the first instance and this process does not affect the legal rights of both

35


Stewart Germann a Mark, in such a manner that the business carried on by the franchisee is or is capable of being identified by the public as being substantially associated with a Mark identifying, commonly connected with or controlled by the franchisor; and • the requirement that the franchisee conducts the business or that part of the business subject to the Franchise Agreement, in accordance with the marketing, business or technical plan or system specified by the franchisor; and • the provision by the franchisor of ongoing marketing, business or technical assistance during the term of the Franchise Agreement.” Consideration should also be given to the definition of a Franchise Agreement which “means a contract, agreement or arrangement, whether express or implied, whether written or oral, between two or more persons by which one party to the agreement (‘the franchisor’) grants, authorises or permits the other party to the agreement (‘the franchisee’) the right to operate a franchise. Any contract, agreement or arrangement which purports to be a Franchise Agreement shall be deemed to be a Franchise Agreement for the purpose of this definition, notwithstanding that it may lack any or all of the requirements or attributes referred to in the definition of franchise”. In my opinion there are three types of franchisors in New Zealand: 1. Those franchisors who belong to the FANZ, have high standards and comply with the Codes. parties to resort to litigation. 6. Advisers - all advisers must provide clients with written details of their relevant qualifications and experience and they must respect confidentiality of all information received.

that is probably because both parties respect each other and wish to continue their relationship. However, if mediation does not work then there is always litigation which is certainly at the divorce stage of the relationship.

7. Code of Ethics - all members must subscribe to the Code of Ethics which sets out the spirit in which the Code of Practice will be interpreted.

Definition of Franchise

All franchisor members of the FANZ must have a Franchise Agreement which contains a dispute resolution clause and a cooling-off provision. In order to resolve disputes, mediation is the favoured method and is working well in New Zealand. It has a high success rate in relation to franchising disputes and

“Franchise means the method of conducting business under which the right to engage in the offering, selling or distributing of goods or services within New Zealand includes or is subject to at least the following features:

The definition of ‘franchise’ as contained in the Rules of the FANZ is as follows:

• the grant by a franchisor to a franchisee of the right to the use of

2. Those franchisors who do not belong to the FANZ but have high standards and comply with the Codes. 3. Those franchisors who do not belong to the FANZ and who do not practise high standards and engage in unethical franchising. The Code of Practice states that franchisors must publish a Disclosure Document and give all prospective franchisees at least 14 days prior to signing the Franchise Agreement. The Disclosure Document must provide certain information including the following: • Details of the franchisor and its directors including experience, a viability statement with key financial


FRANCHISING AND THE LAW IN NEW ZEALAND

information of the franchisor; • Details of any bankruptcies, receiverships, liquidations or materially relevant debt recovery; • Criminal, civil or administrative proceedings within the past five years; • A summary of the main particulars and features of the franchise; • A list of components making up the franchise purchase; • Details of any financial requirements by the franchisor of the franchisee; and • Other information listed in the Code.

Areas Covered Franchising in New Zealand covers goods and services in many areas. For example, general retail, leisure and education, business and commercial, food and beverage, health and fitness, computer and technology, home and building services. Some New Zealand franchisors have gone offshore to expand their systems internationally and they include Fastway Couriers, Esquires Coffee and Burger Fuel. New Zealand has double taxation treaties with many countries and it has Goods and Services Tax (GST) at a rate of 15 per cent. Most overseas franchisors that enter New Zealand do so by either direct franchising or appointing a New Zealand master franchisee. However, development agents are also used and Subway successfully expands its system by using such agents. Laws and regulations exist restricting a franchisee’s ability to make payments to a foreign franchisor in the franchisor’s domestic country. In all cases nonresident withholding tax (NRWT) must be deducted and paid to New Zealand Inland Revenue. There are no restrictions on the amount of interest that can be charged on overdue payments but any oppressive amount is likely to be challenged by a franchisee or a franchisee’s lawyer.

Good Faith Contract law governs the legal relationship between the parties to a franchise agreement. The Courts in New Zealand may be willing to imply a duty of good faith into franchise

agreements which stems from an overseas trend to imply such a duty because of the special relationship between the parties.

• Franchised businesses account for just over 5 per cent of New Zealand small and medium-sized enterprises.

Since the Dymocks case in the High Court and the subsequent appeals to the Court of Appeal and the Privy Council in 2004, a number of legal writers have argued whether the contractual relationship between the franchisor and the franchisee is of such a special nature that a duty of good faith and fair dealing can be implied. Justice Hammond put this view forward in the High Court but it was firmly rejected by the New Zealand Court of Appeal. It was discussed briefly by the Privy Council on final appeal but the judgment of their Lordships did not require them to make any final decision in respect of that issue. However, Lord Browne-Wilkinson when commenting on the Court of Appeal suggestion that “there is no room for superimposing a general duty of good faith, that to do so conflicts with requirements of certainty in commercial contracts” stated:

• Most business format franchisors operate in service industries, followed closely by retail franchises.

“These comments suggest that, in their view, the development of the law so as to make an obligation of good faith implicit in the relationship between franchisor and franchisee (as in the case of partnerships and other joint venture agreements) is not desirable. Their Lordships proposed to express no concluded view on these comments and wish to reserve their opinion on the suggestion that the implication of an obligation of good faith and the relationship between franchisor and franchisee would be an undesirable development.”

• 88 per cent are Kiwi born enterprises.

• System growth has been static in 2011 and 2012. • Just over half the systems report increased sales activity but a significant number experienced pressure on profit margins. • There are fewer units operating in business format franchises (22,400 in 2012 compared to 23,600 in 2010), but employment numbers have increased (employing over 100,000 people in 2012, compared to 80,400 in 2010). • There is increasing but still constrained use of information technology. • A small percentage of franchises actively use sustainable business practices. In conclusion, the voluntary disclosure régime which is in New Zealand and which is also in the UK and Singapore works very well. Ultimately we may follow Australia and other countries and have a mandatory disclosure régime but at present, in my opinion, there is no necessity for that to happen. Stewart Germann, Franchising Lawyer Stewart Germann Law Office E: stewart@germann.co.nz W: www.germann.co.nz

I have inserted good faith clauses in franchise agreements which I draft for the past ten years. The mutual covenants are that each party must act loyally and faithfully and in good faith towards the other party.

2012 Survey The latest survey in 2012 showed the key results as follows: • There are approximately 446 business format franchisors in New Zealand in 2012, compared with 423 in 2010. • It is estimated that franchised businesses contribute between $19.4 billion and $21 billion to the New Zealand economy.

Funding your Franchise

Steve Seddon, Senior Business Development Manager, Westpac

T

he purchase of a franchise business can be both an exciting and stressful time. It will be one of the most important financial decisions anyone can make. With some preparation and planning franchisees can save time and money in the funding progress. After identifying the franchise opportunity the next step is to determine the best way to fund the purchase. Although each business is different the financial basics are the same. Purchasers will need to prepare a comprehensive business plan and seek advice from their accountant, financial advisor and lawyer. This step is essential in understanding the opportunity and manage the risks associated with business ownership. The business plan will assist franchisees understand their financial requirements such as purchase price/ set-up costs, stock requirements, debtor levels and ingoing costs (for example, legal fees, accounting fees, stamp duty, government charges, insurance prepayments, landlord bonds etc.). A suggested structure for a business plan includes:

• Cash flow/profit and loss projections (including detailed assumptions)

• Executive summary

• Information systems and controls

• Information about the business including set up cost/purchase price

• SWOT analysis on the business - strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats

• Industry and Market Analysis (competition etc.)

• Exit strategy

• Business strategies and objectives

• Lease terms and option to extend

• Management structure and owners roles

• Franchise terms and options to extend

• Financial information including historical financial performance (if an existing site)

• Background of the incoming franchisees including personal financial position, experience etc.

Steve Seddon

The application and quality of advice will be improved by the preparation the franchisees have undertaken in writing their business plan. This view is true irrespective of the amount of money the franchisee is looking to invest in the franchise purchase. Mobile businesses, for example, while at the lower end of the cost scale, still have the potential of losing money if the franchisee gets it wrong.

all parties in the event of changes in circumstances or disputes.

Generally business loans are secured against equity in the borrower’s residential property. In some situations the borrower may be able to use the assets of the franchise as part of the security mix. This will depend on the arrangements between the bank and the franchisor.

Vendor finance

Potentially franchisees can lose not only their initial investment but they are liable for any financial losses that may accumulate. Those with leased business premises will be liable to rental and outgoings for the remainder of the lease term.

Overdraft

A search of the internet will provide access to a range of free business plan templates and help guides.

Other options to finance your franchise include:-

Next step - research the bank.

Equipment Finance

Franchisees should choose a bank which has expertise in the franchise sector and will provide the range of financial products and services the business will require.

This is a facility for a specified term secured by equipment and may be provided by a bank or finance company. Some financiers may require an upfront deposit depending on the type of goods and the financial position of the borrower. Not all equipment is suitable however equipment finance may be suitable for large cost items including motor vehicles.

Does the bank have franchisee finance specialists? Do they have specialist bankers franchisees can meet face to face? Banks offer a wide range of finance and transaction options which will vary from franchise system to franchise system, business to business, owner to owner. The best structure may include a mixture of some of the following:-

Bank Business Loans As bank business loans are repayable over a specified term they are well suited to finance the initial purchase, start-up stock and ingoing costs. Care should be taken to match the term of the loan with the remaining term of lease and franchise agreements. That means the loans will be repaid if the business does not continue after expiry. Franchisees need to ensure they hold some funds to cover unexpected events. Something may happen which will

40

reduce cash flow and this impacts the franchisees capacity to pay business expenses and suppliers.

This type of finance is suited to cover cash flow fluctuations. Overdrafts are suitable for seasonal business and franchises with a high level of debtors or stock. Also secured by the borrower’s residential property.

Own cash The best thing about a franchisee using their own cash is it reduces the impact of finance costs on their cash flow. Cash contributions do not incur interest costs and don’t need to be repaid. This cash could come from the franchisees savings or the sale of an existing asset or property.

Family and friends This type of finance can present a wide range of issues. If proceeding down this path, franchisees should seek advice from their accountant and lawyer. It is essential that all arrangements are fully documented covering interest rates, repayment terms and security offered. This documentation will assist

Some franchisors may offer vendor finance for a new franchise or the outgoing owner may be prepared to defer all or some of the purchase price. This type of finance is not widely available and will generally require the incoming franchisee to make an upfront financial contribution. Interest rates and repayments will also vary from situation to situation. This list is not exhaustive however represents the most popular ways franchisees finance business purchases. Irrespective of how the business is funded, the franchisee will need to build a strong banking relationship to establish business transaction accounts, internet banking, merchant/EFTPOS facilities, purchasing cards, business insurances and more. Other issues for a franchisee to consider include understanding their current financial capacity and ongoing income requirements. This may include providing home loan or rental repayments, credit card and personal loan payments, school fees and general living costs. They should also take into account income from other sources such as interest, dividends, partners salary (if applicable) etc. Personal insurances also need to be reviewed prior to purchasing the franchise. This is to cover business operations and to meet financial obligations in the event of franchisee accident or illness. As outlined above getting proper advice from suitably qualified and experienced professionals will assist in getting the business structures correct and provide a better understanding of the franchise business. Experience has shown this to be time and money well spent. Steve Seddon, Senior Business Development Manager, Westpac P: 08 9426 2204 E: sseddon@westpac.com.au W: www.westpac.com.au

How to avoid the

7 things that can send a franchise broke

results in significant time and cost for everyone involved. Our work led us to investigate this topic. We’ve written this article to help you understand the issues, and be aware what to look out for. It can form the basis for discussion with your franchisor about how they can help. You can then set up systems to avoid these common problems and reduce the risk of failure.

The ‘7 Things’ Survey We surveyed over 1,100 people in the franchise sector as part of our investigations into what sends a franchise broke.

O

ne of the foundations for a successful business is to understand the risks you face and put strategies in place to manage them.

This article summarises the results of our survey and outlines the ‘7 Things that will send a franchise broke’.

Poor financial performance is one of the major risks

When you start a franchise it’s important to have your eyes open to the things that might cause it to fail. This will help you put in place strategies to avoid that happening.

in business. There are many reasons a business can run into financial difficulties, but very often it comes down to poor business management. This

By understanding what causes a business to fail you can take steps to avoid falling into the same traps.

Peter Knight & Kate Groom

Read through the following countdown and look out for the recommended tips.

7

Not responding to change

In the last few years, so many things have changed in so many areas it’s almost impossible to keep up. Those business owners who do not respond to change will go broke. The areas of change include: • Customer behaviour – the impact of the internet on decision making • Competitors – new and aggressive, bringing new challenges • Price competition – a discount mindset has swept in • Increased costs – profit margins have been squeezed. Unless business owners stop to look they continue on as if nothing’s changed. But their business environment has changed. Their cost structure is different now. This means they must make more sales to cover these costs or else they will go backwards. “They still do the same things that worked for them prior to the GFC… the market has changed significantly since then.” To deal with this, business owners need to: • Review the areas that have changed around them • Work out their response

• Take action and implement their plans. A useful approach is to build this into your Annual Planning Process. For instance, review the competition, conduct customer surveys, look for trends and identify what has changed. It’s also critical for business owners to monitor their financial position for signs of change. They should review their breakeven point, set new revenue targets and develop specific strategies to respond to these changes.

TIPS • Implement a structured process to review your business. • Then, review your costs and recalculate sales targets to be sure you’re covered financially.

6

Difficult Childhood

These are the businesses which have been ‘up against it from the start’. It seems that for some, things have never been quite right. There may be a number of reasons for this. For example: • They were under-funded from the start • They were too optimistic about sales and underestimated their costs • They bought the dream and fell in love with the brand • Only had a vague idea about their financial commitments.

But reality often turns out different to the dream. This can lead to big financial challenges over time. Many lack the skills to manage this effectively. Respondents commented on the “total lack of business acumen” of new business owners. “They simply don’t know how to run a business.” This should not come as a surprise. Franchises often appeal to first-time business owners. When they start off, many simply don’t know what to do. They don’t have the experience, or skills to run a business. For them, one of the attractions of a franchise is they imagine the systems and support will overcome their shortcomings in business and financial management. A ‘difficult childhood’ need not be terminal. It can be worked through. The key is to assess the situation then find ways to deal with it. Set the plan of attack, find ways to make more sales, cut excessive costs - then stick to the plan! Business owners benefit from a structured approach to financial and business management. But they need help to learn the necessary business skills. This would include ‘pre-franchise’ advice to ongoing training as their business develops.

TIPS • Prepare a conservative budget with higher costs and lower revenue than you initially hope for. • Include a realistic allowance for living expenses in your projections. • Work out what level of sales are needed to cover your expenses. • Develop skills on how to run a business.

5

Lack of Business Rigour

Many business owners have no structure for running their business – they lack business rigour and discipline. They manage things on an ad-hoc basis and deal with urgent matters as they arise. They have minimal financial or management processes in place.

42


How to avoid the 7 things that can send a franchise broke

Franchisors often assume their franchisees know how to manage the business and financial side of things. We found this to be mostly not the case. Our research found a significant lack of skills in business and financial management. We also found that business and financial information is not used effectively. Many business owners simply don’t know what numbers to look at. Even if they do, they don’t know what to do with them, or how to use them. Many are unskilled at making business decisions based on this information. While many franchisors provide operational and marketing support, there is little guidance on business and financial management. Many franchisees have told us they want to run a better business, but they don’t know how. The answer is to provide a practical structure for sensible business management. This would include regular business meetings, with a structured and relevant agenda. It should also include a review of their financial position and operations, followed up with an Action Plan.

TIPS • Look for franchise systems that teach you about business and financial management. • Hold monthly business meetings.

4

People do ‘crazy’ things

Some business owners simply do ‘crazy’ things! They blow their money on extravagances with little thought of upcoming expenses. They dramatically increase their costs of living, like buying a new car, jetski, or even a Harley! “They’re mad…they spend all their money on toys!” But these are often the things people expected when they bought into the dream of owning their own business. They see it as ‘pay off’ for working so hard and the sacrifices they’ve made. However, those who have increased their costs during the good times will

struggle in the tough times. When they’ve borrowed to their limit they have no buffer for contingencies. “If I’d known what was ahead I would’ve done things differently” This shows how important it is to look ahead and anticipate future expenses. If business owners are heading into the ‘danger zone’ there are specific things they should do. These are: • Reduce expenses where they can • Increase their sales, and

Franchisees need regular sales training for themselves and their teams. Their skills must be razor sharp! Sales training must be ongoing, with regular refresher courses. “If staff don’t know how to sell it doesn’t matter how much you try to motivate them, or encourage them. If they don’t know…they don’t know!” Sales targets must be revised each year to reflect increases in costs. Plans need to be developed and implemented to achieve these targets.

• Do a cashflow forecast. This will let them see when the ‘cash crunch’ will occur. They can then do something about it before it’s too late.

TIPS • Even if you’re flush with cash, look ahead before you make extra financial commitments. • Cash flow planning is a ‘must’ and needs constant attention.

3

Not enough sales

Sales are one of THE most important elements in business. The lack of sales can cause a business to fail. Business owners must be committed to the pursuit of profitable sales. These must occur so they can pay the bills. In tougher times, many business owners cut expenses in order to stay profitable. But there are only so many that can be cut before it adversely affects the business. Therefore, they need to look at increasing sales. To make more profit a business must constantly increase its sales. But here’s the paradox. Given that selling is so important we were surprised with the lack of focus and attention it receives. We found that: • Many simply, “don’t know how to sell” • They are not trained in sales, many are simply ‘order takers’ • There is an over reliance on head office marketing to make sales • Staff want to be trained, but relevant training is not provided.

TIPS • Continually develop your sales skills and regularly train your staff in sales. • Set sales targets for first six months.

2

Pride and Ego

Many franchisees have run successful businesses. As a result, their self-confidence has grown and they have developed a strong belief in their abilities. They have produced good results in the past and their bottom line has been healthy. But for many, things are different now. What worked in the past might not be working now. They face tougher times ahead. Some are looking for help, but are uncomfortable asking for it. Others are simply blind to the issues. They get defensive and are not open to advice. “Pride gets in the way of effective conversations.” Therefore, it is essential to make it easy for people to talk and ask for help. Some ways to do this are to provide them with practical resources such as: • Financial Health Checks • Business Self-Assessment Checklists. It is critical for business owners to develop new business and financial management skills. This will help them navigate their way forward and avoid problems in the future. Field staff also play a vital role here. It’s important to encourage open communication regarding financial concerns. To do this, field staff need training in business acumen

43


Peter Knight & Kate Groom

Meerkats: • lookout for danger • work together in groups • prepare a place to go if danger comes their way. So, for business owners this means: • look at the trends occurring in your business and the market • assess the risks • prepare plans for how to deal with them • utilise your network and get good advice. This is what we mean by ‘business acumen’. To us, it means understanding the relationship between what you do and the outcomes you get.

and communication skills. This will encourage an environment where franchisees can talk about their issues and be more open to advice.

TIPS • Don’t let success go to your head! • Attend workshops and courses that develop your business acumen.

1

Can’t pay their bills

The main reason businesses go broke is they can’t pay their bills. They can’t meet their financial commitments. There can be many causes for this, but in the majority of cases, it’s because of poor financial management. However, this shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise. The warning signs would’ve been evident.

to generate more sales and find new customers. Perhaps they can learn from the squirrels and meerkats! The squirrels look after their nuts. They look after their current situation and provide for the future. The meerkats scan the horizon and are continually on the lookout. The same goes for business owners. When running a business there are two things they must do. They need to closely monitor their financial position and be continually looking around. This will help them be better prepared. So, what can we discover from the squirrels and meerkats? Squirrels: • know where the nuts are • put aside for the Winter • make sure they are edible in Winter

Where you are today is a result of what you’ve done, or not done in the past. It’s a result of your actions and decisions.

• make sure their teeth are sharp enough to eat them.

To have a different future you need to make specific decisions and take deliberate action now. It’s the only way to create the future you want.

• know where the sales opportunities are

of impending danger and make plans

• have appropriate resources on hand.

So, for business owners this means:

• make the sale

These are business fundamentals. These business skills can be taught and developed. Business owners should constantly develop and refine these skills. It’s an important part of running a successful business.

TIPS • Review your financial position. • Look out for the early warning signs of impending financial danger. • Make plans to generate more sales and find new customers. Being aware of these ‘7 Things’ helps you know what you should watch out for. Our advice is to establish good systems for business and financial management. These will help you avoid the ‘7 Things that can send you broke’, and increase your chance of success. “We’ve never found a business owner who is not interested in making their business go better… particularly when their house is on the line..!” - Smart Franchise Peter Knight E: peter.knight@smartfranchise.

CHOOSING A

Business Structure Tim Kilham, Director, Lanyon Partners Chartered Accountants

L

anyon Partners Chartered Accountants, the accounting firm that employs me, has many hundreds of business clients on its books. The most common entity structure amongst those clients is trusts, followed by companies, sole proprietorships and then partnerships (and sometimes a combination of those structures). Why do different clients use different business structures?

The reason is that there is no such thing as an ideal structure for all businesses. One size does not fit all. Factors such as (and I list only a small number of them here) risk profile, wealth, extent of borrowings, family situation, etc. will all have an influence on the structure. You need to choose the correct structure when buying a franchise – you do not want to change the structure at a later date. This is because if you need to change the structure it will be expensive and time consuming. Notwithstanding that you (indirectly) own the business in both the old and new structure, the change will be time consuming, legal costs will need to be paid and there may be tax implications.

• To make money whilst they are running the business. • To ultimately sell the business for a profit. • To keep things simple. • To be protected as best as possible if the business fails. The profit that any business makes before taxation is not greatly influenced by the business structure. However, the amount of tax that is paid on the annual profits of the business, and the amount of tax that is paid on the sale of the business, are greatly affected by the business structure that is chosen.

Which structure should you choose?

The structure you can use to purchase and operate the business is a sole trader (or sole proprietor), a partnership with one or more people, a trust (there are many different types of trusts), or a company (or some combination of these entities).

If simplicity and ease of operation is the major consideration for you, and minimising of tax and asset protection are of less importance, then a sole trader (or sole proprietorship) will be the structure for you to run your franchise. A sole proprietorship exists when you, the individual, run the franchise personally with you being the legal entity (albeit you might operate the franchise under a different name using a registered business name). A sole proprietorship means you personally make the sales, you personally incur the expenses, you personally make the profit (or loss) and you personally pay the tax.

I have already said that there are a wide range of factors that influence the choice of business structure, and I listed some of them above. However, if you consider most persons’ primary objectives when buying a business, I suggest they would normally include:

As a sole trader, there is no ability for you to split income with other people and there is no ability to divert income to other entities or individuals with lower rates of tax. Furthermore, if the business is sued or the business cannot pay its debts then it is you personally who is being sued and all assets

45


Tim Kilham

you own (not just business assets, but assets such as your house and your car) are at risk. There are therefore disadvantages in being a sole trader. However, a sole trader is undoubtedly the easiest structure to set up, and the easiest and cheapest structure to administer. The next option is to run the business in partnership with one or more entities or individuals. Partners of a partnership can be individuals or entities or any mix of them – so for example, a partnership may consist of an individual as one partner, a trust as a second partner, and a company as the third partner. It is not uncommon to find that a partnership consists of a wife and husband – i.e. two individuals. This allows the profit (provided tax laws permit) to be split between the spouses, with the resultant tax bill being lower than if the income had all been taxed in the hands of only one of the spouses. A partnership is easy to set up – it is not required to be in writing and usually is not where spouses are involved. A partnership is therefore fairly easy to understand, easy to set up and

46

reasonably cheap to administer. The biggest disadvantage of partnerships, at least when the partners are individuals, is that partners are jointly and severally liable for the debts of the partnership. If a partnership is sued or unable to pay its debts, the person making the claim can sue either of the partners for the full amount. So, in the case of a husband and wife partnership, all the assets of the husband and wife are at risk, whereas in the case of a sole proprietorship, only the assets owned by the spouse who is the sole proprietor are at risk. It is also worth noting that whilst the partnership split of profits does not have to be the same every year, it cannot be changed simply to suit the partners’ tax situation – you cannot for example split the partnership profits 50-50 one year, and then split the profits 80-20 in the next year simply because it suits the partners better for tax purposes to have this new profit split. The next option for your new franchise business is a company. Far and away the most common type of company that exists in Australia is the private

company. Typically this is a company with a small share capital (so called $2 company) with the shares being owned by family members and one or more people (wife and/or husband) being directors of the company. It costs approximately $1,000 to set up a company and it is not a structure well understood by many people. It will usually be a little more expensive to operate and administer than a sole proprietorship or a partnership. However, in practice, the additional costs of setting up and operating a company are usually insignificant in relation to the benefits that can be obtained from operating through a company. Companies can be very effective for tax purposes. Companies pay tax at a flat rate of 30 per cent on their profits, whereas individuals pay tax at marginal rates that vary from 0 per cent at lower levels of income to 46.5 per cent at higher levels of income. It is possible – and legitimate – to pay salaries to individuals who work in the business to the level where their tax rate is 30 per cent, and then to leave the remainder of the profits in the company to be taxed


CHOOSING A BUSINESS STRUCTURE

at 30 per cent. The highest rate that will be paid (in the short term) is then 30 per cent rather than a possible 46.5 per cent with sole proprietors and individual partners. Companies also offer the advantage of limited liability. A company is a legal entity separate to its owner or owners. You may be the sole shareholder of a company and the sole director of a company, but it is still a separate legal entity to you. In the first place, the liability of the owners of a company is limited to the amount of the issued share capital. So, on the face of it, if you have set up a company with $2 share capital, you as the shareholder can personally lose that $2, but you are not personally liable for any other debts of the company. This limited liability is a huge advantage if the company gets into trouble and is unable to pay its debts. However, there are circumstances in which an individual can be personally responsible for the debts of a company: • If the individual is a director and has allowed a company to trade whilst insolvent or recklessly or negligently, or • If an individual – be that person a shareholder, director or third party – has personally guaranteed any debts of the company. In a typical franchise arrangement, you as the operator of the business will normally have to give personal guarantees to the landlord, to the bank for any borrowings, and possibly to the franchisor. For those creditors, you have no more protection than if you were operating as a sole trader – and the landlord, bank and franchisor are

normally the three biggest creditors. Notwithstanding this, I have seen many situations where business owners have found themselves in financial trouble and are very grateful that they have the advantage of limited liability. In many cases, too, when a company is formed, it may be that only one spouse acts as director and provides guarantees and that the assets of the other spouse therefore remain protected. The final structure which you could choose to run your franchise business is a trust. There are many types of trusts, but the most common trust is the discretionary trust, more commonly called a family trust. A discretionary trust is a separate entity, at least for tax purposes. The profit that is made each year by a discretionary trust can be distributed to beneficiaries, with the amount being distributed to each beneficiary differing each year depending on what is best for tax and other purposes. Trusts therefore offer a great deal of flexibility in minimising tax on the ongoing profits of a franchise. Tax is payable at beneficiaries’ marginal rates – up to 46.5 per cent for individuals but a company can be a beneficiary, thus limiting the tax rate to 30 per cent. All trusts must have a trustee. The trustee can be an individual or individuals, or a company. Because trustees are personally liable for the debts of a trust, having individual trustees (e.g. a wife and husband) as trustees of a trading trust means there is no limitation of liability – the husband and wife are in the same position as if they were trading as individual partners, or if one of them was a sole trader or sole proprietor. However, when the trustee is a company, the same degree

of limited liability is offered as if the trading entity was a company. Setting up a trust and company together costs in the region of $2,000, and the structure is more complicated and more expensive to operate than any of the other structures. However, I again make the point that the additional costs of setting up and operating a company and/or trust are usually insignificant in relation to the benefits that can be obtained from operating through such a structure. The issue of tax payable on the sale of a business also needs to be considered. You will often see references to ‘capital gains tax’, but in fact there is no such thing. In Australia, we pay income tax on capital gains. The amount of any capital gain that is taxable will depend on what allowances if any are available to the taxpayer. The taxable gain is then included in the taxpayer’s income and taxed at the taxpayer’s marginal rate. For most business structures, the taxpayer making the capital gain is able to immediately claim a 50 per cent discount and as a result usually only 50 per cent of the capital gain is taxable. This does not apply to companies. In broad terms, before any other concessions, if a company makes a capital gain, tax will be payable on 100 per cent of the gain and in all other business structures tax will be payable on 50 per cent of the gain. This can be a distinct disadvantage of owning a franchise in a company. Discretionary trusts offer the most flexibility in distributing profits (and thereby minimising income tax) on annual profits, and they also offer the most flexibility in distributing capital gains. Capital gains can be distributed at the discretion of the trustee to beneficiaries who are in the most favourable tax position to receive them. Choose your structure wisely and choose it carefully – the business structure you choose can have a significant effect on the wealth that is created from your franchise.

Achieving

Franchise

SUCCESS

Lorelle Frazer, Director, Griffith University’s Asia-Pacific Centre for Franchising Excellence

F

ranchising can provide an excellent vehicle for business success. However, ‘success’ means different things to different people so it is important to select the right franchise system for your definition of the word.

1. Not everyone will be suitable for franchising

Firstly, it’s important to understand not everyone will make a good franchisee.

If someone who isn’t suited to franchising purchases a franchise it is likely to cause headaches for both the franchisee and the franchise head office, and lead to franchisee dissatisfaction in the future.

Research recently released by Griffith University’s Asia-Pacific Centre for Franchising Excellence reveals a number of factors that impact on franchisee success. Among these factors were personality, adaptability and decision-making autonomy, to name a few.

Personality-wise, if a person is ‘too entrepreneurial’ they are likely to get frustrated by the restrictions of franchising, as franchising is based on following a tried and tested system, which may limit a franchise owner’s ability to innovate.

When a franchisee tries to implement their own way of doing things they’re likely to run into resistance and conflict with the franchisor or head office.

‘Success’ might be achieving a better work-life balance, earning more money, the ability to earn a relatively passive income, or any number of criteria. Some franchises may offer the opportunity to earn more money; however, they may require the owner to be more involved or work longer hours in the franchise. Some people will be willing to make this trade off, while others may be happy to earn (and work) less in exchange for having more time with family and friends. So before assessing a franchise opportunity you need to decide, “what does success look like to me?” Once you have your vision of success, there are other considerations to also be aware of when deciding which franchise to buy. Following are seven aspects to consider for achieving success as a franchisee:

Lorelle Frazer

of Conduct and how to conduct effective due diligence (as well as some of the common mistakes franchisees make), the Asia-Pacific Centre for Franchising Excellence offers a free online pre-entry franchise education program short course, funded by the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission.

The course comprises five short modules, and includes a range of tools and tips to help you with your due diligence. You can find out more on the Pre-Entry Franchise Education Program at: http://www. franchise.edu.au/pre-entry-franchiseeducation.html.

3. Education does make a difference to franchisee satisfaction

Often there is a valid reason for a procedure or system to be a set way, so although a franchisee may not understand or disagree with the rationale behind it, it is still important for the systems to be followed.

Interestingly, Centre research shows most unsuccessful franchisees deviated from the franchisor’s system, whether through offering different products, pricing or other forms of non-compliance, which is something to keep in mind.

franchise royalties to the franchisor which are often based on your sales (not profit), although how these are calculated varies from franchise to franchise. The majority of franchise systems also have a marketing fee you’re required to pay, in addition to money you’ll need to invest into local area marketing.

2. Understand your requirements as a franchisee

50

As mentioned above, as a franchisee you need to follow the systems and processes outlined by the franchisor, even if you don’t understand the reasons behind them. You’ll also be required to pay ongoing

You may also be required to source all stock from the franchise suppliers (some franchises have an exception to this rule). The benefit is the groupbuying leverage generally means you can get the best price by using the franchise supplier. Even if you can get a better price through an alternative supplier you may still have to purchase through the franchisor supplier. To get a quick overview of your rights and requirements as a franchisee and a basic understanding of franchise regulations, the Franchising Code

Education performs an important role in better preparing prospective franchisees.

This statement is supported by research, funded by the Treasury, into the effectiveness of the Pre-Entry Franchise Education program.

The research reveals people who complete the pre-entry franchise education program enter franchising with much more realistic expectations resulting in higher satisfaction levels, and a greater appreciation of factors that influence their franchise unit’s performance.

The better understanding you have of franchising before you sign a franchise agreement and the more due diligence you do the better prepared you will be, so take time to do your research thoroughly.

4. Don’t take on too much debt

Another key finding from Centre research is the adverse effect of taking on higher levels of debt when operating a business.

Although some franchise systems have bank accreditation that allows


Achieving franchise success

franchise partners to take on higher levels of debt, by borrowing against the business rather than just property as security, this may not always be the best option.

Recent research into franchisee and small independent business survivability found the higher level of debt taken on by a business, the more likely it would fail.

This is because in tough economic times, the higher the level of debt the harder the loan can be to service. Franchisees need to carefully consider the level of debt they take on, and consider a ‘worst case scenario’ for unforeseen expenses when assessing franchise opportunities. It’s also important to remember, with a few rare exceptions, businesses will not be profitable from day one so you also need to ensure you have enough capital to cover business operating

expenses until the business reaches breakeven. It’s not uncommon for this to take up to two years and sometimes even longer. The franchisor and existing franchisees may be able to provide some insights into how long this usually takes; however you will need to do your own calculations too.

provided to new franchisees tends to focus solely on these operational aspects. However, there are a number of key basic business skills a franchisee will require to improve their chances of success.

Skills, such as understanding the difference between cash flow and profit, business planning, managing staff, calculating breakeven, and basic marketing, are all essential for franchisees and it’s highly recommended to invest in developing these skills prior to entering franchising.

Fortunately, if this is an area in which you feel you need to improve your business skills there are a number of business courses available, including the Franchise Business Management Essentials online short course developed by the Centre. Find out more information on the online short course at: http://www.franchise.edu. au/business-management-essentials. html.

5. Basic business skills are important (and can sit outside franchisor training)

Although franchising is based on replicating systems and procedures, these generally focus on the operational aspects of the business – how to make a coffee, operate the company’s computer systems, and the like.

In line with this, franchisor training

6. Get the right advice

In addition to doing your own calculations and assessment of franchise opportunities it’s also important to get professional advice.

Alarmingly though, research conducted by the Asia-Pacific Centre for Franchising Excellence reveals prospective franchisees generally don’t conduct much research before buying a franchise and are even less inclined to invest money into the due diligence process.

However, saving a few dollars in the short term may mean losing everything in the long run. If you’re not prepared to invest in the right advice to make your business a success, perhaps you shouldn’t be investing in a business.

Ideally franchisees should at least seek professional advice from a good franchise accountant, a good franchise lawyer and a franchise or business consultant.

51


Lorelle Frazer

It’s also strongly recommended that you seek advice from professionals who have franchise experience, as franchising is a unique business structure.

7. Support of family and friends is vital

Having support of family and friends when embarking on a business venture (whether franchised or independent), is also important.

Getting the business up and running is a big and time-consuming commitment, and you will need your family’s support. You may need their understanding as the business may take priority over some key family events, especially in the early days.

People don’t realise it, however when they first start a business many people work 60+ hours a week, which doesn’t leave too much time for other priorities.

Ask existing franchisees about the hours they worked in the first few years of operation. This should provide you with an idea of the time commitment you’ll be required to make, to make the business a success.

It’s important your family understands this before you start (and will make your life easier during what is potentially already a stressful time).

The most important element however, when deciding which franchise to buy (and even if franchising is for you), is to take your time, research your options and think things through before you sign the franchise agreement. This is the best approach to achieving franchise success.

Growing

into a

MULTI-UNIT FRANCHISEE Kristie Piniuta, Principal, Kubed Legal

M

ulti-unit franchising, when a franchisee owns two or more units from the same franchise, is steadily increasing in Australia, particularly amongst retail franchises. While it does have some distinct advantages, multiunit franchising isn’t for everyone, and franchisees who may be considering growing their business in this way, should consider a number of factors before doing so.

Multi-unit franchising trends For some time now, multi-unit franchising has been very prevalent in the United States. In fact, according to the US franchising research firm FRANdata, multi-unit operators own 53 per cent of franchise units in the US. In Australia, that figure is much lower, but it is growing. According to PwC’s Franchise Sector Indicator report in August 2011, 11 per cent of franchise units in Australia are owned by multi-unit operators. Professor Lorelle Frazer, Centre Director and Lead Researcher at Griffith University’s Asia-Pacific Centre for Franchising Excellence says that while Australia’s number of multi-unit operators is relatively small, it’s increasing, and this is because franchisors are starting to recognise the value of expanding from the inside out.

Retail franchises and multi-unit operators Multi-unit franchising is more common amongst retail franchises, because the benefits tend to be greater. That’s because these businesses are more

scalable, so franchisees have more to gain through increased buying power and economies of scale. Service franchises however, where the business owner provides the service to the end user, may struggle to reap the same rewards. In Australia, some franchise systems in particular, have large numbers of multi-unit operators. According to PwC’s Franchise Sector Indicator report in August 2011, at Anytime Fitness (fitness clubs with 24/7 access) multi-unit operators own 50 per cent of the franchise units. Similarly, in September 2012 the PwC report noted that 44 per cent of 7-Eleven’s franchise units were owned by multi-unit operators. Salt therapy and wellbeing centres, Salts of the Earth, have a franchise recruitment strategy to attract prospective multiunit operators from the outset. Obviously, in

53


Kristie Piniuta

these cases, both the franchisors and franchisees see real benefits in the multiunit franchise model.

Multi-unit franchisee award winners Matt Walker and his brother, Brad, are examples of successful multiunit franchisees. Matt and Brad own three Grill’d franchises at Knox Ozone, Camberwell and Southland, and they were named as the Victorian winners of the multi-unit franchisees at the FCA Excellence in Franchising Awards three years running: in 2011, 2012 and 2013. The Walker brothers owned the very first Grill’d franchise in 2006, which was at Knox Ozone. Matt and Brad chose Grill’d because of its strong brand, its robust business model and because they felt that the business had the ability to scale up, without compromising the customer experience. Also, as Brad worked with Grill’d prior to the business becoming a franchise, he had an insider’s knowledge of its incredible potential.

54

Advantages of multi-unit franchising The success of Matt and Brad’s businesses proves that there are some significant advantages to growing into a multi-unit franchisee. One important advantage as Matt sees it, is that multi-unit operators have the opportunity to expand their skills and become more management focused. “Multi-unit management is what I know well and enjoy doing. Working on the business, rather than in it all of the time, allows me to add skills to the business that I wouldn’t be able to do if I was in the restaurant all day.” Another advantage that we’ve already touched on, is that multi-unit operators have the potential to achieve significant economies of scale. Staff training, management systems and advertising spend for example, are all more efficient when the cost is spread over two or more franchise units. There’s also the potential for cost savings as multi-unit operators have

more buying power, and may be able to negotiate a better price for the goods they need. And of course, with each new franchise acquired, there’s less time spent on understanding the business and setting up new systems. Matt also believes that, with more franchise units, there’s more chance of financial reward and staff development. “Theoretically, we have greater opportunities for financial success for us, and growth opportunities for strong people in our business.”

Challenges of multi-unit franchising There are however, challenges to being a multi-unit franchisee too. Firstly, there are the extra costs required to manage a bigger business, and there’s also increased financial risk. Matt says, “As multi-unit franchisees, we have greater financial exposure and therefore risk with the banks.” There’s also the risk of losing sight of


GROWING INTO A MULTI-UNIT FRANCHISEE

the reason the franchise exists in the first place - the customer. “If we didn’t manage it properly, we could lose control of the instore experience that you, as a franchisee, provide when you’re there.” says Matt.

Consider the structure of your business If you’re considering growing into a multi-unit franchisee, there are many considerations. It’s prudent to obtain independent legal and accounting advice at the outset. Whether a multiunit operator will be one entity, or whether each franchised business will be treated as a separate legal entity, is the first consideration. Your accountant or lawyer may even recommend a more sophisticated model. It will also be important to consider how tax, profits and losses should be treated. For example, what are the grouping implications?

Consider the support you’ll receive from the franchisor Another area worth investigating is the support and benefits you might expect

to receive from the franchisor. Some franchisors for example, will encourage multi-unit operators with ‘friendlier’ selected fees and charges. For example, franchise fees, training fees or ideally, services fees, may be lowered, where it is likely that less support will be required. Franchisors might also consider waiving or amending some of the standard clauses in the franchise agreement for multi-unit operators. For example, a proven franchisee may not be required to provide personal guarantees. The multi-unit operator may be permitted to aggregate sales between businesses for rebate purposes. There are many practical benefits that may be offered on a day-to-day basis for multi-unit operators too. According to the PwC Franchise Sector Indicator report in September 2012, at 7-Eleven for example, multi-unit operators get access to staff training tools, as well as systems that allow operators to check the daily sales and store reports for all of their units from a single store. They also get access to a District Manager, and they attend regular meetings where 7-Eleven asks if they have any problems

and how they can assist. Multi-unit operators may also be involved in the franchisor’s advisory or marketing committee.

Investigate whether there are different agreements for multi-unit operators On the other side of the coin, it is important for the franchisee to understand what agreement(s) the franchisor uses for a multi-unit operator. The franchisor may require the multi-unit operator to enter into one agreement that covers all franchised businesses. Alternatively, a separate agreement for each franchised business and an over-arching multi-unit agreement may be preferred by the franchisor. Multiunit agreements may include very comprehensive minimum performance criteria, restraint provisions, divestment rights for the franchisor, and cross default clauses. Typically cross default clauses provide that a breach of one agreement is a breach of the other agreements between the franchisor and the franchisee. Irrespective of this, the Franchising Code of Conduct must be complied with, in respect to any termination of a franchise agreement. Also, the franchisee may have an opportunity to negotiate additional training clauses in multi-unit agreements to ensure it receives the training and support it needs from the franchisor.

Get advice and plan early It’s important that franchisees with the ambition to become a multi-unit operator plan early. Obtain independent legal, accounting and business advice on structure, tax, accounting and multiunit agreements as soon as possible. Consider your financial and leadership readiness, and what infrastructure will be required for expansion.

Tips from a multi-unit operator What advice would Matt Walker give to franchisees who are considering growing into multi-unit operators? First

55


Kristie Piniuta

and foremost, Matt says, is family support. “Our family is absolutely critical to the success of our business, both in terms of supporting our goal to have a work/life balance, and in terms of trust. Without their trust, we wouldn’t be able to continue to grow and expand.” Matt also recommends that franchisees research the new opportunity thoroughly. “Research the potential new opportunity extremely well as you will be risking your original franchise if you’re not successful.” This research should involve gaining a thorough understanding of the “extra costs involved in running more than one site.” You should also understand what criteria the franchisor may need you to meet. Many franchisors will require franchisees to meet specific multi-unit operator criteria, including financial standing, the health of the franchisee’s existing franchise business, and strong management and business planning skills. Undoubtedly, any history of

56

breaches is likely to be considered too. Also, it might seem obvious, but start out with one unit, and then add more from the same franchise. Don’t start out by purchasing two units upfront for example. “If possible, stay within the existing brand for as long as possible,” says Matt. Multi-unit franchisees also need to consider whether or not they have the right personal characteristics. They need to be the type of person that can hand over control, and they need to possess strong skills and experience in both management and business planning. The difference between a single-unit franchisee and a multi-unit franchisee, is that the multi-unit operator is working on the business, not in the business. They need to have the big picture, mentally. Following on from this, it’s critical that you have honest, hard-working and reliable staff that you can delegate to. Also “ensure you instil ‘your’ culture into

the entire business, as you can’t be in two places at once,” says Matt. Spend time on getting your systems right too, as they’ll drive efficiencies across your business. Matt says, “We have a robust internal management system that works well for us operationally and in representing the brand.” Finally, to help your business grow, help your staff grow too. Matt says, “As a multi-unit operator I can provide real growth opportunities for strong people in our business.” And what does the future hold for Matt? “I would love to stay as a multi-unit franchisee for a long time. I would like to have one more restaurant in the near future, and I hope we can assist Grill’d with their expansion plans.” Kristie Piniuta, Principal Kubed Legal E: kristie.piniuta@kubedlegal.com.au W: www.kubedlegal.com.au

How do I

Franchise

my business?

Kevin Bugeja, Managing Director, Franchise Selection

S

o you think you may like to franchise your business but are not sure if this is the right way to go or if your business is even suited to franchising.

At Franchise Selection we see many concepts that struggle to expand or find franchisees once they are established, as they did not use a franchise consultant that understands franchisee recruitment. They may have just created a great set of franchising documents (or perhaps not so great) as there are franchise consultants and there are great franchise consultants. Secondly, the consultant should also ensure it is something that people will ultimately want to own and will leave their jobs for. We find the best franchisees are ultimately still employed but looking for that opportunity to start again, perhaps in an area that they have no experience of or formal training for, which is why they will be attracted to a franchise in the first place. The business also needs to have a sense of appeal, the best test for this is what we call the simplicity test. If the business is simple to explain and simple to run then you will normally find franchisees will be attracted to the model. This is really important when considering franchising your business as there is no point building something you can’t sell, the other alternative may be just to expand your company operations yourself.

Just because a particular business can be franchised does not mean it should be franchised. Any business owner who is considering expansion would be well advised to assess whether franchising or company-owned expansion is a better alternative for growth before embarking on either strategy. But what kinds of factors need to be taken into account? And how do you go about making the decision? Perhaps the best way to start is by understanding the relative advantages of each path, and the myths that surround them.

The Advantages of Franchising Franchising, as a growth vehicle, has several distinct advantages over the alternative of company-owned expansion. In a nutshell, people turn to franchising for four reasons: capital, motivated management, speed of growth and reduced risk. First of all, since the franchisee provides all the capital required to open and operate a unit, it allows you to grow using the resources of others. By growing using other people’s money, you’re virtually unfettered by capital when it comes to your ability to grow. Moreover, since franchisees are highly motivated by the investment of their own money, combined with the fact that you’re usually compensated based on the top line (with royalties) instead of bottom line performance, you’ll probably have far

on franchising seems to have come in waves. Some years ago, there were a number of cases involving the proper use of advertising funds. As decisions were reached and case law established, we saw fewer and fewer such lawsuits. Later, we saw several lawsuits on the issue of territorial encroachment. And again, as decisions were reached and case law established, fewer such lawsuits occurred. Why have these lawsuits subsided? Because the lawyers who specialise in franchising have followed these cases closely and have learned how to write clauses in their contracts that allow franchisors to avoid such litigation. The fact is, the franchise agreements that are written today afford you even more protection than those written a decade ago - as long as the right lawyer is drafting the agreement.

fewer problems managing your growth. And since the addition of each new franchisee brings another ‘body’ into the organisation, you can also leverage off of the efforts of these franchisees when it comes to site selection, lease negotiations and other startup functions - allowing you to grow with fewer internal resources as well. The combination of these factors provides you with another significant benefit: reduced risk. You can grow to hundreds or even thousands of units with a limited investment and without spending any of your own capital on unit expansion.

Debunking the Myths Franchising also harbors its share of misconceptions. The first and foremost among these misconceptions is that franchising is a legal minefield simply waiting to explode on some unsuspecting franchisor.

58

The fact of the matter is that franchising need not be any more litigious than any other endeavor and, in fact, may be considerably less so. But let’s face it we are becoming a more and more litigious nation and anyone can sue anyone else for seemingly anything - including the coffee spilled on one’s lap - so there is no absolute proof against litigation but it is interesting to note that less that 4 per cent of the nation’s franchisors were involved in any kind of litigation with franchisees last year. That said, it is important to understand a few reasons why franchising is actually less prone to litigation. First of all, the typical franchise agreement is a very one-sided document. And, if written by a lawyer who specialises in franchise law, it is likely to afford you a great deal of protection. Over the years, the litigation centering

The two issues that always remain ripe for litigation, of course, are violations of the franchise code and fraud in the inducement of selling a franchise. But even these issues can be largely inoculated against. First and foremost, train all your people on franchise law and, of course, hire a good franchise lawyer. Be sure everyone on your staff is scrupulous in their honesty. Mystery shop your recruitment team and, of course, ask each and every franchisee in their closing interview about the recruitment process and any representations that were made. Many franchisors will use a written ‘representations checklist’, and some have gone as far as recording those interviews. And, lastly, institute a no tolerance policy if you do find any infractions. On the upside, franchising affords you a significant ‘liability tradeoff’. In other words, when making a decision about franchising versus company-operations, you need to consider the litigation exposure you are avoiding as a part of this same equation. Yes, as a franchisor, you gain some potential contractual liability with each franchise agreement you sign. Every time you sign any contract, of course,


How do I franchise my business?

you’re obligated to live up to the letter of that document. And while these documents are one-sided, there is no denying the potential liability. But consider the alternative of company-owned operations. With company-owned operations, you have the liability for every lease you execute - whether it’s for equipment, a vehicle or a building. In franchising, that liability is the franchisees. With company-owned operations, you have the liability for every employee you hire - personal injury, sexual harassment, discrimination, employment law, crime in the workplace, the list goes on and on. Again, with franchising, that employment liability is largely that of the franchisee. The same holds true for customer liability - everything from breach of contract to personal injury.

To be clear, franchising may not stop someone from suing you, but if you have a well-written contract and a well-written operations manual (allowing you to avoid claims of negligence and inadvertent agency), the liability will likely be limited to the franchisee. Add to that other protections (such as the requirement of the franchisee to obtain insurance coverage and name the franchisor as the co-insured), and it becomes readily apparent that significantly more liability is associated with the growth of an equal number of company operations. The second big myth in franchising involves control and the improved unit-level performance that some argue comes with it. Control advocates believe the ability to terminate employees at will is a big advantage, and, of course, with company

operations, you can hire and fire at your own discretion. While you have a great deal of control over unit operations in a franchise, terminating a franchisee is certainly more difficult. We would argue, however, that the ability to terminate does not equal improved unit operations or brand performance. Both independent studies and our own observations of franchisors have repeatedly shown that similarlysituated franchisee-operated sites typically outperform their companyowned counterparts in almost every imaginable category - from revenue to perceived cleanliness to customer satisfaction.

Why? Two reasons: First, franchisees are highly motivated and take a pride of ownership that is difficult to instill in someone with nothing on the line. Their franchise is their business, and thus they usually keep it cleaner and run a tighter ship than their non-franchisee counterparts. Instead of constantly training and re-training and hoping for the best, franchisees develop a depth of knowledge and experience that is virtually impossible to replicate in a company-owned operation at the unit level. But while franchisees not performing up to your standards can always be terminated, of course, the process can be slow. And if you have a franchisee living up to the letter of the agreement and operations manual, termination will not be an option. This is why the process of franchisee selection is so important to franchisors. If you choose the right franchisee, these issues likely never arise. Choose the wrong franchisee, and you may need to live with your mistake for years.

Personal Attributes For

SUCCESS Tania Allen, Founder, Vision Alliance

I

f you were given a magic wand and had the opportunity to wave it over your business and your life what would you change? What things would stay the same? Most successful people when asked what the secret to their success has been have responded with: it’s in the uncanny ability to channel focus in a singular direction. To focus is a two-part process: it’s a clear vision, and it’s waking up as the person who can make the vision occur. Let’s explore some of the key personal attributes for success.

Know what you want It appears to be an obvious one however you would be surprised to learn that a very small percentage of business people know exactly what it is they want and stay focused to its achievement. Most have a few options available to them and therefore fail to take the necessary actions that help them realise their goals faster. Not being 100 per cent clear about what you want can open yourself up to falling short. The first place to start is to take a pen and piece of paper and write down exactly what it is you want. Be sure you write down what you want in all key areas of business and in life. It’s important to be balanced in this. Writing down what it is you want will help clarify and solidify in your heart and mind whether it’s really what you want.

The best way to predict your future is to create it! How you write down what you want is very important, so as you begin the first step of writing down your goals, make sure your outcomes meet the CREATE critera.

C - Clear and Concise R - Realistic E - Ecological A - As if Now T - Timed and Toward What You Want E - End Step / Evidence In short, it is important what you want is expressed in a clear-cut way. It must be clear, specific and concise. Remember we don’t get what we want, we get what we expect, so it’s important when writing your goals to be sure you set ones that are realistic and you know you can achieve them. It is a good idea to run an ecology check on your goals, which simply means looking at the consequences of achieving that goal. You can do this simply by asking yourself: is this outcome good for me, good for others and good for the planet? Be sure to always write goals in the present tense as once the mind has fully imagined something, it makes it far easier to accomplish it. Although you will write your goals in the present tense you still must put a future date or time to your goals to indicate when you wish to achieve this outcome, even if it’s tomorrow

see yourself signing the agreement and banking the deposit. Now that you have clarity around how to write goals it’s time to implement it. Take action and come up with a good two week, one month, three month, six month and 12 month goal that will move you closer towards your vision and achieving what it is you want.

What You Focus On Really Determines Your Reality Warren Buffet believes what contributes to overwhelming success is…. “what we focus on and equally important what we choose not to focus on contributes to whether one achieves success or not.” A successful person is one who has developed the ability to focus and maintain that focus on clearly identified and specific goals. Successful people also understand that for them to reach their targets they need to take consistent action to bring them closer and closer to where they want to be. Without action, nothing will be achieved. Success is always in the follow through. How well you plan won’t determine your success. Your success will always be in how well you execute and implement your plan. Your results are clearly determined by what you focus on. This means you have every opportunity to change any and every aspect of your life, starting right now!

If you want to be successful, no matter what success means to you, you have to assume 100 per cent responsibility for everything. There are no excuses. There may be setbacks or economic downturns, or problems that affect your business. There may be situations you don’t like, peers within the network may irritate you, and the direction of the business may turn a corner in the opposite direction you were hoping for. While those things definitely have an impact on you, the way you do business


Personal Attributes For Success

and the sales you make, it is important to realise that regardless of everything, it is up to you, and you alone, to accept responsibility for the success of your business and do what it takes to make it a success. Who are you blaming right now for your shortfalls? We never want to look at where the real problem might be, but it’s important to start to realise that your attitude towards your success starts with you. Take some time right now to think about yourself just for a minute. It’s time to stop looking outside of yourself for the answers. What you sow, so shall you reap. If you are reaping well from the seeds you have sown then that’s fantastic. Think of some new ways to challenge yourself and reach new heights of success. If you are just not happy with what’s happening in your world right now, you MUST assume 100 per cent responsibility for everything; your attitude, your beliefs, your actions, your wins and your shortfalls.

Model The Change You Want To Be Modelling is something you have been doing your whole life without being aware of it. The only problem is that most of us model haphazardly without conscious awareness. There are two types of modelling: inside and outside modelling. In the simplest form modelling allows you to access the tools, strategies, and mindsets of successful people so that you can expand your references and play a different game of life on a larger and more exciting playing field. ‘Fake it ‘til you make it’ is a long held paradigm for success. Far from being dishonest, this principle simply harnesses the power of the mind for accelerated change. Your mind does not know the difference between something that has happened and something you vividly imagined. By identifying new beliefs, values, attitudes and decisions that have already worked for someone else you get the inside knowledge of the rules by which to play your new game. Then you

can set out to master the same skills and employ the same strategies. Why reinvent the wheel when you can learn from the best? These individuals have become masters because they have crafted their rulebook and congruently communicated their vision to the world. They have been clear about who they are, what they stand for, and what they want to achieve, and they have confidently expected to achieve it. You can do the same.

Discipline Once you have decided what it is you want to achieve, you have your vision in place and you know how you are going to achieve it, a disciplined approach must be part of your everyday. Have you ever wanted to shift a few kilos, get fit or accomplish some other goal, only to find you have lacked the discipline to see it through? We expect everyone else to be disciplined in their work day so that they can achieve as much as they can, so it’s important to expect it from yourself. Daily planning will help you maintain discipline. Knowing what steps and actions you need to take and knowing they are moving you closer to achieving the bigger picture (your desired

outcomes) will make it easier to stick to your plan.

Adopt An Attitude For Gratitude One of the best ways to start changing your attitude is to start adopting an Attitude for Gratitude. It’s very hard to bring good into your life if you are not grateful for what you already have. There is always going to be someone else in this world worse off than you are. They may be a competitor, a friend or a complete stranger. Start each day by saying thank you! Giving thanks for what you already have will open the doors for you, and faster than you think. Being critical of others, blaming, complaining, feeling tension, rushing, choosing to be in a bad mood are all signs you are not being grateful. Gratitude can transform your life. Stop allowing minor things to get in the way of your transformation and the life you deserve.

Adopt Unwavering Self Confidence in Yourself Most successful people have a certainty and willingness to do whatever it takes to achieve success, however it often comes across as brash.

place of power, energy, enthusiasm and success, you will never look back. It’s important to also let go of all fear-based attachments. I have been working on this with one of my own coaches and it’s one that successful people before me have done. To be successful, it’s important to release the fear-based attachment to certain outcomes and of being, doing or having anything that you don’t perceive to be currently in your world. It’s about releasing the fear and having patience, living in the moment and pouring your passion into every minute of the day.

TIME TO TAKE ACTION • Define what success means to you. • Decide what it is you want. • Be sure to write it down clearly and concisely. • Start catching your ANTS Automatic Negative Thoughts. • What new attitudes can you adopt? Write them down. • Adopt an Attitude f or Gratitude. Start keeping a gratitude journal and write in it daily. • Be clear about your vision. • Be sure to write it down clearly and concisely.

Success has nothing to do with luck, to be extraordinary takes vision and a willingness to work harder than most people would ever dream of doing. This is the attitude of every highly successful person. What people might perceive as arrogance isn’t always boasting. It can come from a strong commitment to yourself and to your dreams. That’s the foundation of your certainty, your belief, and your patience. The key, of course, is to balance it all with humility.

Feel the Fear and Do It Anyway Now I am not just throwing this phrase out there because a lot of gurus use it. Fear is a real contributing factor to many business owners not realising their true potential, including me. What is important to realise is FEAR is simply False Emotions Appearing Real. Once you acknowledge that, and take control of those emotions and manage your way forward through that fear to a

FCA

Franchising in Australia

T

he Franchise Council of Australia Limited (FCA) is the peak body for the $131 billion franchise sector in Australia, representing franchisors, franchisees, service providers and advisors to the sector. The FCA is a nationally incorporated not-for-profit association with a national head office based in Melbourne, Victoria. The FCA’s main aim is to help people get into franchising and ensure the sector they are joining is as good as it can be. This means promoting best practice in the sector and providing the education and other services necessary to ensure a healthy sector constantly striving to lift its own standards. The FCA assists stakeholders in the Australian franchise sector in a variety of ways, to ensure the sector is a vibrant place to do business. Membership of the FCA is voluntary, and is open to any individual or organisation involved in the franchising sector, including; franchisees, franchisors, lawyers, accountants, banks, consultants, academics, publishers and many more. Whether offering advice on best practice franchising, educating government on policies affecting the sector, promoting franchising in the media or providing professional development services to its members, the FCA does its part to make the sector a positive, sustainable place to earn a living. The FCA is closely affiliated with franchising associations around the world, and is a founding member of the Asia Pacific Franchise Confederation (APFC). It is also a member of the World Franchise Council (WFC) and for 1999 and 2000 was its secretariat.

Membership Benefits Credibility – maintained through the FCA member standards and the Franchising Code of Conduct; Professional support – through education programs, networking opportunities and regular events; Representation – ensuring members’ voices are heard by governments, regulators and other important groups. Membership also means solidarity. FCA members belong to an association where their peers work together for the betterment of the sector. FCA members share a common method of doing business – not a common business. For this reason, franchisors, franchisees and suppliers can freely exchange ideas without fear of losing their competitive edge. The FCA currently has more than 650 franchise systems and suppliers in its membership base. This strong commitment to belonging demonstrates the relevance and value brought to the sector by the FCA.

Major services and initiatives The FCA recognises that its members have different needs, and that different types of members should co-exist harmoniously. The success of franchising depends on successful franchisors, and this, in turn, depends on profitable and happy franchisees. The FCA works constantly to ensure that all activities and services which benefit franchising will benefit the broader community – including franchisees, franchisors, employees and their local economies and communities. As well as commitment to the highest industry standards, the FCA facilitates a number of services and initiatives to assist in promoting and advancing

65


FCA

the role of franchising in Australia, as well as supporting its members.

The FCA Franchise Academy The FCA Franchise Academy is the premier training provider for the sector committed to providing franchisors, franchisees, franchise consultants and suppliers with the best education programs available. The FCA Franchise Academy aims to provide both franchise-specific and generic business skills training and education for pre-entry, in-market and succession (exit) to all organisational levels. The establishment of the FCA Franchise Academy coincided with the introduction of nationally recognised qualifications in franchising. In 2012 The FCA Franchise Academy launched the Certified Franchise Executive program (CFE). The CFE is the only internationally recognised professional accreditation program for franchise executives. It is an educational framework designed to enhance the professionalism of franchising by certifying the highest standards of quality training and education. The program offers existing and aspiring franchise professionals and

66

entrepreneurs the opportunity to grow professionally and reach a recognised standard of excellence within the local and international franchise community.

Supplier Forum Established in 2008, the objective of the FCA Supplier Forum is for suppliers to the sector to advise the FCA on what products and services they expect and need from their industry representative body. The FCA recognises that a franchise cannot sustain success without the assistance of the many and varied consultants, services and business systems they provide. Suppliers such as consultants, lawyers, finance, IR companies, software companies and many more, constitute the bridges that allow franchisors and franchisees to travel above the competitive landscape, on their way to a sustainable commercial advantage.

Women in Franchising Committee The number of women participating in small business and franchise ownership is increasing, with almost 28 per cent of franchised units predominately owned

or operated by females (Franchising Australia survey). In 2007, the FCA announced the introduction of the Women in Franchising Committee (WIF), dedicated to promoting and advancing the achievements of women in franchising and small business. The aim of the WIF Committee is to increase female participation in franchising. It aims to be a professional, organised group within the FCA that will provide women inside and outside the sector with information and encouragement, as well as genuine opportunities for contribution, networking and professional development.

The National Franchise Convention The FCA hosts the annual National Franchise Convention. The Convention brings together the Australian franchise community – including successful business people, CEOs, government officials and industry advisors – to enjoy education, networking and business development opportunities. Traditionally a three-day event, the National Franchise Convention also


franchising in australia

includes a trade exhibition where suppliers to the franchise sector can showcase their products and services. The convention is open not only to those in franchising circles but also to the small business sector generally and it is not necessary to be an FCA member to attend. The 2014 Convention (NFC14) will be held from Sunday 26 October to Tuesday 28 October at Sydney’s Olympic Park. For more information contact info@franchise.org.au.

FCA Excellence in Franchising Awards The FCA Excellence in Franchising Awards recognise and reward companies and individuals within the Australian franchise sector and provide a platform for entrants to showcase their achievements on the national stage. The Awards are open to FCA member companies only and are committed to ensuring that franchisors, franchisees and suppliers to the sector are appropriately represented. Success at the Awards can increase brand recognition, customer enquiries and media coverage. It can boost company morale and help attract the best talent to companies. The Excellence in Franchising Awards ceremony is held in conjunction with the National Franchise Convention and is the pinnacle of the franchising year. Past winners include 2013 Established Franchisor of the Year, Specsavers, 2013 Franchise Woman of the Year, Debb Meyer (Narellan Pools) and 2013 Multi-unit Franchisee of the Year, Caroline and Paul Attard (PoolWerx) and many more.

Hall of Fame The Australian Franchise Hall of Fame was established in 2003. During its creation, the selection panel searched back to the origins of franchising in Australia and, by a meticulous process of elimination, identified the groundbreakers, influencers, quiet achievers, selfless contributors and outstanding performers who endured the trials and laid the foundations of the sector’s success. Now, it is members of the Hall of Fame itself who induct new entrants.

The sole criterion is an outstanding contribution to franchising – whether as a franchisor, franchisee, academic, lawyer, consultant, politician, financier – whomever. The 2013 Hall of Fame inductee is Denis McFadden, founder of Just Cuts.

FCA Member Standards Members of the FCA receive many benefits which help businesses keep informed and connected with the franchise sector and facilitate education. One of the hallmarks of a reputable sector is a commitment to high standards of personal and professional conduct. This enhances public perceptions of franchising, helps safeguard the investments of franchisors and the businesses of franchisees, protects franchise networks from unfair or unethical attack and provides guidance for those seeking to commence their franchising journey. The FCA encourages its members to maintain standards of conduct worthy of franchise sector professionals. The Member Standards are designed to provide members of the FCA with an authoritative guide on acceptable standards of conduct. The FCA believes the Australian franchise sector to be well regulated with the Franchising Code of Conduct (the Code) allowing for affordable, efficient dispute resolution procedures and disclosure provisions to assist and guide the sector. It also considers that the relationship between the franchisor and the franchisee can be developed even further with best practice guidelines in the form of FCA Member Standards. It is the FCA’s view that a member gains significant market benefit in identifying themselves with FCA membership and as such the business practice and activities of members should work towards franchise best practice.

Member obligations All FCA members are expected to conduct their franchising activities professionally and in accordance with Australian law. They are expected to comply with agreed minimum standards of conduct. The FCA considers the following standards to be relevant to members:

• Members of the FCA shall abide by all relevant State and Federal laws including, in particular, the Franchising Code of Conduct and the Competition and Consumer Act. Within 14 days of a written request by the FCA, a member shall furnish to the FCA a copy of its current disclosure document, franchise agreement and any other documentation or advertising material used in connection with the appointment of a franchise. • No member shall imitate the trademark, trade name, corporate name, slogan, or other mark of identification of another member of business in any manner or form that would have the tendency or capacity to mislead or deceive. • Members will become familiar with the content of these Member Standards and draw them to the attention of clients as appropriate from time to time. • A member, be they a franchisor, vendor, franchisee, franchise broker, or representative of a franchise system should not sell a franchise if at the time the franchisor or vendor franchisee knew or ought to know that a reasonably competent franchisee would be unlikely to be able to successfully operate the franchise. • Members are expected to behave professionally and refrain from illegal, unethical or improper dealings or otherwise act contrary to the image of franchising or the FCA. The FCA recognises that its members have different needs, and that different types of members should co-exist harmoniously. The success of franchising depends on successful franchisors, and this in turn, depends on profitable and happy franchisees. The FCA works constantly to ensure that all activities and services which benefit franchising will benefit the broader community - including franchisees, franchisors, employees and their local economies and communities.

FANZ

Franchising in New Zealand Graham Billings, Executive Director, Franchise Association of New Zealand

T

he Franchise sector of the New Zealand economy is substantially larger than most people realise. The number of units operating with business format franchise systems has increased considerably since 2003 when a major survey was conducted. The Franchising New Zealand 2010 survey conducted by Massey University, Auckland and Griffith University, Queensland found 423 active franchise systems in New Zealand compared with an estimated 350 in 2003. The survey also estimated a total 23,600 franchisee units, which was a 92 per cent increase over the seven years. The most recent survey, Franchising New Zealand 2012, however, found that system growth had slowed in the previous two years and that there were now approximately 446 active business format franchise systems. Whilst the number of franchise units had fallen slightly to 22,400, the level of employment in the franchising sector had grown by more than 25 per cent to over 100,000 people. The franchise model is operated across all sectors of business. In New Zealand, franchising has comparatively fewer businesses in the retail sector compared with many other countries, but is comparatively stronger in home and business-tobusiness services. Indicative of the entrepreneurial spirit of New Zealanders, approximately 88.0 per cent of franchises operating here are home-grown and despite the economic situation, there are some franchise systems that are still experiencing growth. Franchising in New Zealand continues to play an

68

important role in the economy with an estimated contribution of between $19.4 billion and $21.0 billion in turnover.

The Franchise Association of New Zealand (FANZ) If you are looking for a business opportunity or needing advice on franchising, our recommendation is that you don’t sign anything until you have asked the question: “Are you a member of the Franchise Association of New Zealand?” Members of the Franchise Association are the franchise professionals, committed to uphold ‘Best Practice in Franchising’, and the Association works hard to promote the benefits of dealing with members, both for those looking to purchase a franchise and also those who need to gain professional advice. The benefit of FANZ membership for franchisees was recognised in the New Zealand Prospective Franchisees Survey*. The survey found that 75.7 per cent of prospective franchisees considered membership of FANZ important or very important, when considering a franchise to buy into. As the peak body for the franchise community in New Zealand, the Association makes representations to Government on issues of concern to franchisors and franchisees including such issues as proposed legislation; new business support programmes and business taxation. The Association often conducts email surveys of members on key issues to gain valuable feedback prior to making a submission.


franchising in NEW ZEALAND

Unlike a number of other countries in the world, including Australia, franchising in New Zealand is governed by the same commercial laws as any other business. In 2008 the Ministry of Economic Development called for submissions on the possibility of introducing franchise specific regulations following a high profile fraud case. In 2009, however, the Minister of Commerce concluded that there was no need at that time for the introduction of franchise-specific regulations and went on to say that that there was little evidence of widespread problems in the sector. He drew attention to the Franchise Association of New Zealand’s (FANZ) Code of Conduct as an area where self regulation was working. Despite the substantial difference in the regulatory environments between New Zealand and Australia, the two 2012 surveys show remarkably similar levels of franchising disputes.

Buying your New Zealand franchise Buying the right franchise can have many benefits over the stand-alone business, not least of which is that you can potentially purchase into a franchise system that has a proven track record and one where you will receive all the help you need to become successful. As a prospective franchisee, an important part of your due diligence should be to establish whether or not the franchise you are considering is a Member of FANZ. Don’t be misled by a statement such as, “we are not members but we abide by their Codes.” There have been several reports of this in recent times where something has subsequently gone wrong in the relationship but we have been unable to assist the franchisee, as we have no powers to intervene unless the franchise is actually a Member.

Of course, there are franchise systems such as McDonalds who are currently not in membership but who operate ethically and provide valuable business opportunities for the prospective franchisee. In all cases, however, you should ask the franchisor to explain to you why they are not members. For a franchisor to gain membership of the Association requires that they submit their documentation for scrutiny to ensure that their Franchise Agreements contain all the elements required under

the Association’s Codes and Rules. Some of the key elements that are required are: • Full and proper disclosure of matters important for a prospective franchisee to know and understand; • A seven-day cooling off period before a prospective franchisee is finally committed to the purchase; • A requirement that the prospective franchisee produces a certificate their solicitor to the effect that they have

FANZ

advance their knowledge and learn from the experience of others. This is a unique advantage not available to nonmember franchise systems and is clearly demonstrated at Annual Conferences where first time attendees regularly comment that they are amazed by the amount of advice and information that was freely exchanged by members.

had the agreement explained to them – or a signed statement that they have declined to take independent legal advice; and • If things go wrong, compulsory mediation by a FANZ appointed experienced franchise mediator as a first step in dealing with the issue. The Association’s independent Scrutineer carries out compliance checks on a biennial basis to ensure that documentation maintains the standards that are required. Carrying out your due diligence on every aspect of your intended franchise system is vitally important. The New Zealand Prospective Franchisees* survey found that over 70 per cent of prospective franchisees met with three or more franchisors before making up their minds and nearly 75 per cent talked to three or more franchisees of their intended franchise system as part of their decision making process. To assist prospective franchisees make informed decisions, FANZ has developed, in conjunction with Massey University, a five segment free online training course that is available through the FANZ website www. franchiseassociation.org.nz. Successful completion of the course will provide you with a certificate that will show a prospective franchisor that you are serious about the franchise sector.

Some franchise systems have already made it a precondition to discussing your possible purchase of a franchise with them. If your franchise system is in membership, you have the ability to make a formal complaint to the Complaints Panel if you believe that your franchisor is in breach of the Association’s Codes or Rules. The Complaints Panel is fully independent of the Board of FANZ and its members are experienced in franchising both from a legal and practical standpoint. If your complaint is upheld, the franchisor can be required to rectify the situation or face a range of penalties that are contained within the Association’s Code of Practice. If the franchise you are going to purchase is from a Member of FANZ, you too will be required to sign up to the Association’s Code of Conduct and Code of Ethics to ensure that as a franchisee you undertake to maintain ‘Best Practice’. In addition to standards and compliance, franchisors, franchisees and service provider members gain much from membership to the Association. Apart from the significant marketing advantage of being able to use the Association’s logo as a sign of credibility, membership also opens up a whole range of opportunities to

As a Member or the franchisee of a Member you have the opportunity to enter the prestigious annual awards, which culminate in a gala awards dinner in November each year. These awards are based on an internationally recognised business excellence system and not only provide you with the opportunity to showcase your business, but also gain valuable insight into the opportunities to improve your business from the feedback reports provided by the evaluators. There are entry categories for both franchise systems and franchisees and winners regularly use their success in marketing campaigns.

Exporting Your Franchise to New Zealand For an Australian franchisor coming into New Zealand it is a relatively straight forward process from a legal point of view. Most systems that come into New Zealand from Australia set up a local company both to protect intellectual property in New Zealand as well as to ensure a ‘foothold’ in New Zealand. It is important to get trademarks registered in New Zealand as early as possible. It is not an expensive process but should be considered well before actually arriving in New Zealand. If the Australian franchisor is operating directly in New Zealand then the franchise agreement should be reviewed by a New Zealand lawyer and made subject to New Zealand law and to New Zealand jurisdiction for ease of franchise rights enforcement. Reputable Australian systems that come here ensure that they have a Disclosure Document that is relevant to New Zealand circumstances as well as a cooling off period etc. A number of


franchising in NEW ZEALAND

Australian systems have made, as a key feature of setting up in New Zealand, an early application to join the FANZ especially as the FANZ requirements for disclosure differ in some ways from those required under the Australian regulations. Proper Disclosure Documents, cooling off period and mandatory mediation as a dispute resolution process are all part of the voluntary Code of Practice to which all FANZ members are required to adhere. It certainly enhances the reputation of the system operating in New Zealand. Obviously, if a Master Franchisee is appointed in New Zealand then having that franchisee become a member of the FANZ is likely to be perceived as a system which respects the maintenance of high standards. In spite of a minority of lawyers and accountants seeing franchising as something akin to the Wild West, the vast majority of lawyers, accountants and business brokers throughout New Zealand have a reasonable understanding of franchising and the benefits it can bring to franchisees. There are a growing number of lawyers, accountants and business brokers who specialise in franchising. There is still a good deal of education to be undertaken for the public about avoiding doubtful franchise systems, but the trend is for specialised business brokers to promote healthy systems and to steer people away from the moonlight operators. The majority of the banks in New Zealand now have a strong presence in the franchise industry and bear in mind that all the major banks in New Zealand are Australian owned. There are reputable franchise consultants in New Zealand with well-established track records and for anyone who attends the annual FANZ conference it is manifest to observe that there is a strong and proactive congeniality within the franchise industry in New Zealand. There are a small number of dedicated and respected franchise consultants in New Zealand who can be invaluable in modifying systems coming into

this country. Involving their use can considerably diminish the likelihood of a legal claim being brought against a franchisor coming across from Australia. Be aware that employment laws in New Zealand are similar to Australia and dismissing staff is not an easy process. Also New Zealand has an act called the Resource Management Act which, coupled with the Building Act, means that obtaining building consents for shop fit-outs can be slow and expensive. It is vital to stress the need to do plenty of homework. Obtaining sound taxation advice is essential before coming into New Zealand. There is a withholding tax system for payment of royalties and other fees from New Zealand to Australia but there is plenty of advice available from accountants who understand the taxation laws between the two countries. It is important to remember that GST applies to everything in New Zealand (even food items) and the tax structure here is somewhat different from Australia. For a start there is no such thing as stamp duty. The government Kiwi Saver superannuation scheme requires contributions from employers to be made when employees opt in to the scheme. It is also important to know that we have the Personal Properties Securities Act which is a system of online registration

of all charges (e.g. what used to debentures for companies) against both individuals and companies as security for monies lent and where goods and services are supplied on credit. New Zealand has recently been named as the sixth highest ranking country based on the United Nations Development Programme which has regard to the standard of living of its people, its population’s access to knowledge and its population’s chances of living a long and healthy life. There are many success stories for Australian systems entering into New Zealand. A point to remember, however, is that the disposable income of New Zealanders is not quite the same as that of Australians. Having said that, the lifestyle differences between Australia and New Zealand are not significant and so long as the homework and planning are done carefully then there are good prospects for Australian systems to enter into New Zealand and becoming successful.

THE INTERFACE FINANCIAL GROUP Phone: 1300 940 908 Website: www.interfacefinancial.com.au Email: ifg@interfacefinancial.com Contact: David T. Banfield Business description: The Interface Financial Group (IFG) franchisees provide short-term working capital through a proven and innovative invoice discounting system. IFG has been operational for over 40 years and operates from a base of more than 150 franchise offices in Australia, the U.S., Canada, the U.K., Ireland, New Zealand, Singapore, and Mexico.  The new concept, IFG 50/50 franchise, offers all the same great benefits as The Interface Financial Group “standard’ franchise, but with some very significant enhancements, and a lower entry level.  IFG 50/50 franchisees do not do transactions alone—all transactions are syndicated 50/50 with IFG-the franchisor, and that means less working capital required to fund transactions; IFG does the bulk of the due diligence and the ‘paperwork’ for the transactions; and IFG 50/50 franchisees will concentrate their efforts on building the referral relationships – they do the ‘people work’.  A very innovative capital leverage program has also been introduced to allow franchisees to grow their capital even faster using ‘other people’s money’. Year established: 1972 Number of franchise outlets: Over 150 Investment required: $50,000 - $100,000 Training & support: Extensive local training and support provided Locations available: Opportunities exist nationwide for unit franchisees.
