Growing Your Business with Multiple Franchise Brands and Locations

Growing Your Business with Multiple Franchise Brands and Locations

Some people think that if you’re a franchise owner, that’s it. You own one franchise, and you’re almost a glorified employee who works for the franchisor. You aren’t really a business owner. You can never grow your business. You just have one stand-alone store in the franchise network, and that’s it. But that simply isn’t the case, as you may already know. Some franchise owners end up running businesses that operate and manage several different franchises. You could own a corporation that has five gas stations in a region, six restaurants and three clothing stores. No, it wouldn’t happen overnight, but the point is that some people do take that approach. Those people are often called master franchisees or area developers, and obviously, it takes a long time to get to that stage in one’s career, if you go that route. But the point is, being a franchise owner never means that you can’t grow and expand your business – and we tak ... read more

Your Check Engine Light is Talking To You. Are You Listening?

Your Check Engine Light is Talking To You. Are You Listening?

You would think that most drivers, if a check engine light came on, would take their car into be serviced – right away. Because it says check engine. But as you know, if you’ve been driving awhile and owned a few cars in your lifetime, that doesn’t always happen. People are busy. Sometimes money is tight. And if the car is still driving and seems okay, it’s easy to justify not taking your vehicle in. And the more days, weeks or even months that go by, the easier it becomes to rationalize. “The car is running fine,” you may be thinking, “and I have this money in the bank, and I don’t want to complicate my life with a big car repair bill. If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” But the problem with that thinking is -- it probably is broken! So, yes, fix it. And taking your car in now may save you from a far, far bigger car repair bill in the future. At Milex/Mr. Transmission, w ... read more

Why Invent the Wheel? Franchise It, Instead

Why Invent the Wheel? Franchise It, Instead

If you’ve thought many times about starting a business but quickly dismissed the idea, there are probably some logical reasons holding you back.  Fear of failure, having the proper guidance and being able to market and sell your product or service could all be reasons why you hesitate in starting your own business. One possible solution to overcoming many of these fears is by looking into franchising. That is, running a business that is part of a regional or nationwide company. As you presumably know, McDonald’s is a franchise. So is Subway, Ace Hardware and Circle K. In fact, there are over 3,000 types of franchise brands in a wide range of industries. When you own a franchise, you’re the business owner – but it’s a little similar to being a condominium owner. In that situation, you own the property and have a lot of leewa ... read more

Moran blog – Moran Franchisee Uses Holidays to Give Back

The spirit of the holiday season is about more than presents, food and family. The holidays are also a time when we help those who are less fortunate than us.

When the holiday spirit moves you to help, it can pay to listen. Mr. Transmission/Milex franchisee Ronnie Weiss has been doing exactly that for more than 25 years. Ronnie has become a fixture in the Houston community not just for his automotive expertise, but for his generous spirit toward his neighbors. He recently assisted a local horse trainer with transmission repairs on her car after health and financial difficulties left her unable to work and pay for the service. We caught up with him ... read more

Franchisee Spotlight: Albert Daniel, Owner of Milex/Alta Mere, Boonsboro

“Like father, like son” suits Albert Daniel. Growing up, Daniel’s father was the neighborhood mechanic, often accepting a helping hand from the younger Daniel. From there, Daniel spent five years in the Navy, where he repaired and maintained equipment that supported jets on the aircraft carrier USS George Washington. Eventually, after spending a few years as a technician for General Motors, Daniel decided to become his own boss and start a franchise.
