Kall Kwik: Generate wealth with a proven business
Presenting his tips on what to look for in a franchise opportunity, Kall Kwik UK Managing Director Mike Hutter recommends joining a network well into its third decade of franchising.
Hundreds of businesses fail each year, often due to a lack of preparation and planning. The franchising method is often a more secure route to developing a successful business, however it is not for the half-hearted.
What should you look for in a franchisor before you invest? Firstly, the franchisor should have a good record of working with franchisees and an ability to listen and respond to them, blend their input with its own and communicate with franchisees to maintain shared values and strong partnerships. At Kall Kwik this is done through interactive conferences, events and roadshows; dedicated field-based staff; and personal contact with franchisees through visits.
Secondly, you should expect a proven business model that will allow you to quickly and easily establish your business faster than the competition. Kall Kwik has been dedicated to developing a winning business formula that has seen the average franchise turnover increase to £430,000 (well beyond the franchising average of £291,000) with the most successful franchise far exceeding sales of £2 million.
Thirdly, you should expect to be provided with a strong brand that is well established. Since 1978, when the first Kall Kwik was opened, the brand has expanded its presence to nearly 160 businesses across the UK. The highly visible locations aid brand recognition and improve the effectiveness of marketing programmes - over 90 per cent of Centre sales turnover comes from business-to-business direct sales activity providing business print & design solutions to their clients.
Fourthly, the franchisor should be able to provide you with extensive training and support to enable you to run and maintain a successful business. One of the advantages of the Kall Kwik franchise opportunity is that no previous experience in the business design and print services industry is required. The only prerequisites are that franchisees are sales focused, are willing to work hard and have an ability to communicate with a wide range of clients.
Finally, the franchisor should be able to provide you with the innovation, leadership and inspiration in all aspects of business from legal and property advice right through to marketing and business planning. An example of the way Kall Kwik is motivating owners is by placing greater emphasis on franchisees' key competencies. These include a range of services from design (a hugely exciting growth potential area that generates additional print work) through to print, fulfilment and delivery. They call it design to deliveryTM and it is extending the brand's reputation for excellence beyond the core field of business print. It is important that franchisees research their options carefully before investing and ensure they choose an option that matches their values and aims and will provide the right structure to grow a sustainable business. The strength of the Kall Kwik brand is based on excellent service.
The UK's leading business print and design provider is now recruiting people who want the opportunity to use a proven, successful business system to generate wealth.
