Here are the major reasons that paying for a holiday light franchise makes no sense.
1. A franchiser will charge you more for products.
The bottom line is they are in the business of making money selling you products. They will promise you that they can save you money. Send us their price list, and we will beat it. Run from any franchisor that requires you to buy ONLY from them. This is a huge red flag.
2. Your costs with a Holiday light franchise company will be higher than your competitor’s costs!
Do you really want to pay a franchise fee on all the work you do for the rest of your business life? If you don’t have to pay a franchise fee you can offer your clients a cheaper price.
3. You have to live with the decisions of the franchisor.
What is best for the franchisor is not always best for you. These management decisions can hurt you. What if they decide to discontinue a product that is your top seller? What if they overbought a certain bad selling product and they are now trying to cram it down the line to you? Remember, whatever management decision the franchisor makes, you have to abide by your agreement.
