Franchising - A Guarantee, Right?
Franchising is the new American Dream. At least, it can be. A franchise can be a great investment, especially when you are talking household names with massive advertising and marketing budgets and a time-worn system that is flawless. Think of the various fast-food restaurants - and there are many others.
If you want to start a pre-school dance business - particularly one that is "mobile" where you take classes to your customers in facilities such as child care centers, pre-schools and community centers - your choices are more limited. A franchise is absolutely the right choice for some people - you get a protected territory (at least, from other franchisees from the same brand), usually some training, a business system with a track record, and a program.
So why would you choose something different? Well, buying a franchise is like showing up at your wedding to find out whom you're marrying. In other words, you can never really know what your franchisor (the company offering the franchise) is going to be like until you've already signed up. And you're usually signing up for at least five years. It's an expensive way to start a business, because the franchisor wants those up front fees to give you a territory and train you, and then wants a slice of your income for ever, for marketing and maintenance purposes.
Dancercise Kids is different. We know there are many, many of you out there that simply want access to great curriculum at a reasonable price. We know there are others who also want help growing their business - perhaps with an intuitive brand name and presentation look behind them. Then we know there are some of you that want to turn your love of dancing into a business and need help right from the start with all aspects of starting and growing a business in pre-school dance. We can help you with all of these.
Here's a table of differences between a typical dance franchise and Dancercise Kids. Check it out and let us know if you have any questions:
