Have you ever wanted to start a business, but felt unsure about how to start things from the ground up? Do you want a flexible and self-determined lifestyle where you are your own boss? Finally, and most importantly, do you love great pizza?
If your answer to all these questions is yes, then you should consider franchising with Proper Pizza. If you haven’t entirely made that decision yet but are eager to hit the ground running, then we’re here to help!
So, what exactly is franchising, and how can you get started?
What is franchising? </H2
Halfway between buying an existing business and starting your own from scratch lies franchising. By licensing the proprietary information—think recipes, logos, store designs, and so on—of an established business, you get a blueprint for running your own store. At the same time, you’ll be the business owner of your very own franchise. Additionally, by franchising with an existing business, you gain access to their systems, information, and logistics. This allows you to get your business off the ground quickly and provides a support network when you run into problems.
To become a franchisee, you’ll need to pay an initial fee to the franchise, as well as ongoing royalties. In return, you get access to all of their internal business operations, which allows you to hit the ground running. You’ll also get ongoing support from the company in running your business, and enjoy all the benefits of franchising an already popular brand.
What is it like franchising with Proper?
To secure a Proper Pizza franchise, you’ll need at least $350,000 in capital. That will cover opening your store and all the franchising fees. In return, we’ll research and secure a location, build the store, and provide full training to you and your staff. You’ll get access to all of our systems and, of course, our Proper recipes.
It couldn’t be easier to get set up. We’re proud of our pizza and the branding we’ve built around it, and will spare no effort to ensure that your very own store will get the full treatment, too. While there are a few options when considering setting up a pizza franchise in NZ, including major international fast-food brands, none of them have the level of quality, service, and potential that Proper Pizza does. With a premium product and a history of making excellent pizza, your Proper Pizza franchise will be a cut above the competition.
Who is franchising for?
Franchising is ideal for those who want to own and run a business, but aren’t sure where to start. If you haven’t run a business before, or you’ve been out of the game for a while, it can save you a whole lot of hassle and a few headaches to have all of the details sorted out for you, leaving you to focus on the day to day aspects of the business.
It’s also an excellent option for people who are looking to get value out of their business quickly. By starting with our established brand and market share, you’ll instantly prove popular with a pool of customers and will instantly be rolling on the promotional side of things.
Franchising gives you valuable experience if you want to start a business from scratch later on, so it’s also for those looking to learn the ins and outs of business ownership without the high potential risk of failing.
What is it like to run a franchise?
When you own your own business, you are your own boss. You have no one to answer to except for yourself, which offers you ultimate freedom in your lifestyle. You’ll have a lot more flexibility with your time and schedule once your business is up and running. Of course, you’re taking on responsibility, too. That’s the basic deal: more freedom, more responsibility.
However, that’s not to say you can’t share the load, so you’ll need to find responsible managers that you can trust. That allows you to step out of the business when you have other things to do. Of course, owning a franchise also suits those who like to be more hands-on and be in the store more often. The best thing is that it’s completely up to you how you want to approach it, and you’ve got Proper Pizza behind you for advice and guidance along the way. One thing’s for sure: you won’t be having to get your boss to approve your holidays anymore!
Ready to crush the pizza game?
Franchising gives you the best of both worlds. You gain full ownership of your own business and get to take it from the ground up. At the same time, you have all the resources and support behind you to get started quickly and ensure success. When you franchise with Proper Pizza, you also become part of an established and respected brand – and you get to spend your days around what critics have called the best pizza in Auckland.
