Why Owning a Franchise is Better than an Independent Business
As a franchisee, you’ll purchase the right to use the name, processes, products, and service offerings of an established company known as the franchisor. In contrast, a small business is owned and operated independently and does not have the support of a parent company.
Although both options have their advantages and disadvantages, a franchise provides you with a higher certainty of success with a proven business model. Independent small business owners may have more flexibility, but since the franchise brand is already established, you’ll have the ongoing support and guidance of the franchisor. This likely makes the business easier to start and operate.

Let’s review some of the benefits of becoming a franchisee!
Less Risk with a Better Rate of Success
Compared to an independent business, franchises have a better success rate because of their proven business model. The Dog Stop® has spent years as a franchisor testing and refining business strategies. Your business can thrive with the support, training, and ongoing assistance we provide.
Overall, having the ongoing franchise support of a parent company provides franchisees the resources and tools they need to grow their business successfully. It increases the chances for long-term efficiency and profitability.
Enjoy Higher Long-Term Profits
Franchisees have the advantage of economies of scale when it comes to marketing, purchasing, and other business areas. This represents significant cost reduction and higher profits.
Compared to independent small business owners, franchisees benefit from the resources of the franchisor, which can create higher efficiency, improved revenue, and lower operational costs. As a franchisee, you can leverage the brand’s marketing strategies and purchasing power. Your franchise can thrive with the ongoing support you receive to optimize your market conditions and management strategies.
Operate Efficiently Under a Proven Business Model
A proven business model provides franchisees with the strong foundation they need for success. It allows them to increase their probability to have a long-term, sustainable business and profitability.
The franchisor provides training and ongoing assistance to help your franchise operate efficiently with accessible franchise investment costs. There is no guesswork or trial and error because a proven business model has already tried and tested what works.
Relax with the Support of a Franchisor
Having the support of the franchisor is key to helping ensure that your franchise ownership is set up for long-term success. Franchisors provide training and guidance, operational support, marketing resources, operational assistance, and many other key components to ensure your franchise achieves its goals.
Standardization allows your franchise to operate easily according to the established business model and standards. This helps maintain the highest quality and consistency in all franchise locations to continue to enhance the brand.
The Advantage of Having an Established Brand
Building a brand is one of the most challenging parts of starting a dog daycare business from scratch. The Dog Stop® has established brand recognition in the industry along with a solid customer base. We were given the INC 5000’s Fastest Growing Companies Award. This is one of the examples of why working with an established brand can make a huge difference when starting a business.
A reputable brand is a valuable tool for a franchisee to increase traffic, establish credibility, increase public exposure, and reduce marketing costs. It provides the franchisee a competitive advantage because the products and services they offer are trusted and recognized in the industry.
