If you have always dreamed of opening your own candy business, franchising candy stores may be an easier and more beneficial way to go. When you franchise candy stores, you are investing in a business that already has a business and marketing plan with a proven record of success from the candy company that is selling the franchise. Franchising candy stores may create the blueprint you need to open and run a successful business because the foundation is already in place.

Money

Find candy store franchises. Franchises regulate where new branches can open, so before you decide on any candy store franchise, take the time to research the franchise opportunities available to you first. Search for food and candy franchises online using franchise listing directories or look on the website of your favorite candy store to see if it offers franchises.

Contact other franchise owners. If you are new to franchising, contact the owners of some of the other candy franchises before deciding which franchise to invest your money. Talk on the phone or arrange to meet face-to-face for the franchise owner to answer your questions and provide you with a better view of what is like to own and run the candy store franchise.

Find out the costs involved in buying and maintaining the franchise. Each candy franchise has its own costs, terms and conditions. Contact each candy store franchise you’re interested in to obtain an information package. The information package spells out any up-front costs and ongoing costs, as well as the terms and conditions you have to meet in order to maintain the franchise agreement with the candy store.

Establish financing and funding sources. After you have the total amount of money you need to buy and start the franchise, look at the amount of money you have and can use in your personal savings. If you don’t have enough money on hand, find out of the franchise offers a financing option or if you need to obtain a small business loan.

Sign the franchise agreement. Once you choose the candy store franchise you want to start and have your financing lined up, you buy the franchise by entering into a franchise agreement with the candy company. Once you buy into the candy store franchise and sign the franchise agreement, the candy company provides you with the business plan, operations manual, marketing plan and all of the other information you need to start and run the business.
