    Franchise or Chain
    Hello

    I am new to the forum, would like to gather some advice on expanding my business. I am in the health industry, and we provide pain management services such as low back pain, arm pain etc.

    There are two options for my expansion.
    1. Franchise
    2. Chain

    Franchise is less profitable, and the initial investment is minimal for the franchisor. I now only have one clinic.
    My question is why would someone trust my brand name?? If I had 5 clinics sure, the quantity explains how successful I am doing. However I believe there is a beginning for every franchisor, starting from one towards many.

    Chain business is more profitable, but investment cost is high, plus it is more time demanding compared to franchise. The risks are higher too. Searching for employees who are likely to stay more than 3 years is unheard of in my profession. As practitioners build their client base, they tend to leave.

    How shall my thought process be at this moment, while I am deciding between Franchise and Chain? There must be some criteria that I must meet before even considering franchise.

    My gut feeling tells me I shall start with chain, as I grow to 3 clinics, then I could promote my practice to possible franchisee’s/investors.

    Your advices are valuable, thanks a million

    My advice may come a little late to the game but if I were you, I'd build one by one under your complete management. Once you have 3-5 clinics, you will have the freedom to decide what your next move is. It's important to develop positive cash flow regardless of the way you do it. If you have positive cash flow from one clinic, you should be able to get debt financing to help build the second, and third. FYI, we place clinical trials in pain management facilities to help increase revenues. e-mail me if you are interested.

    My opininon is that although chain business investment costs a lot, it's much more practical and stable to start with.
