What is a franchise?

The simplest way to put it; Franchising is a way of distributing goods and offering services through a licensing relationship. As the franchise owner, you will be granted permission from the franchisor (initial creator) to sell their services or product under their brand name, using their business format, while continually striving for profit and growth.   

So how is this different to owning your own business?

When you purchase a franchise, the brand, services and product are already there. There’s no need to re-invent the wheel, the successful business model is already there for you. All you need to focus on is executing the system. Any new business has the element of risk, but a franchise system certainly has less risk; you have the benefit of being self-employed and the support of the franchisor behind you.

What are the advantages of owning a franchise?

You become part of a well-established brand

Being part of a franchise means you don’t need to build your reputation from scratch. If you invest in a well-known, trusted franchise, people will already be aware of your services.

Caci is a leader in the skincare and appearance industry with over 35 locations throughout New Zealand, and over 21 years’ experience. Being part of an established Caci franchise means you have access to the systems that are proven to work and you can enjoy the support of people who are there to make sure you have what you need to succeed.

Ongoing operational support

If you invest in a franchise, you don’t have to go it alone. You’ll get the systems, support and marketing you need to help you get off to the best possible start.

When purchasing a Caci franchise, a dedicated support office can help you with all the business essentials; from marketing, financial planning through to training in our very own Training Academy.

Financial return

Franchising is a lower-risk way of going into business than setting up from scratch or buying an independent small business. Being part of an established franchise means you have access to the systems that are proven to work and you can enjoy the support of people who are there to make sure you are able to run your franchise successfully. 

What are some of the main responsibilities of a franchise owner?

As a franchise owner, your responsibilities are similar to those of a normal business owner. However, tasks such as employment relations, product ordering and marketing activities can be streamlined. You will benefit from the highly systemised franchise, scale and support of nationwide marketing campaigns.
