Simply put, franchises suit some people and many people can be very successful in a franchise environment, however, it may be a good idea to have a look at how many franchises are up for resale and ask yourself why? They sound like a great idea, having a complete template of everything you have to do right down to the spec of the garbage bags you purchase through a supplier they tell you to use, makes it easy right? The infrastructure that goes into detailing every aspect of a franchise does come at a price. They control what you do, when you do it, what you can/can’t do and suppliers you have to purchase from. You work your butt off and share your hard-earned revenue with the master franchisor; on the royalty scheme which may have sounded fair to begin with; a weekly/monthly fee that sounded reasonable at the beginning; the shared marketing contributions that may or may not directly assist you, but then it ends up killing your bottom-line income. (your profit) Oh, and did I mention the royalty comes off your gross revenue, it’s not a % off the balance after costs.
Anyway, we are not here to franchise bash. We don’t claim to be better or worse than a franchise with our Dealer Pack Model, it is just different. We removed the restrictions, on-going costs and royalties of a typical franchise agreement and thought…..If I wanted to be a Dealer what would I want/need to be successful? That’s it. We feel we are more suitable to an entrepreneur who wants a business opportunity where they can really be their own boss, do things their way and on their own time, while having the backing of the manufacturer and an experienced support team on their side.
When you invest in the HTA Dealer Pack, it allows you access to purchase the full range of products at excellent wholesale prices and you sell them when you want and however you want to, you can even sell at whatever price you want. You have your own ideas, we want to encourage diversity when it comes to selling the products and not restrict dealers to certain ways. Importantly, we provide you with stock, equipment to get you up and running and we have an experienced support team to assist you along the way. Our HTA Dealer Model, is designed to encourage the potential entrepreneur in you, to turn your business ideas into realities.
