Saxe Coburg is delighted to have developed a franchise model, giving property industry experts the opportunity to own their own Estate Agent under our award-winning brand. There is no better time than today to begin a new chapter of your career, during a time when work-life balance is more pertinent than it has ever been.
As reported by Forbes, in 2019 and early 2020, the experts were predicting consistent growth in the franchise market. The International Franchise Association, in its February 2020 analytics, forecasted that franchises in the United States would grow by 2.8%, adding 232,000 jobs in 2020. A forecast likely to have been mirrored in the UK.
While Covid-19 may have altered that prediction somewhat, the positives of franchising remain, even during an economic or health crisis. Despite the pandemic, franchise brands are thriving, particularly in our industry which has continued to experience growth. So, for franchisors and franchisees there are many reasons why franchising will be more important in 2021 than ever before.
The restrictions presented to us as a result of Covid-19, may at first present adverse conditions to embark on a new business, but in actual fact it is an opportune time to capitalise on owning a franchise using a proven business model and brand. Estate agents in particular are deemed essential businesses and have continued to stay open which means the industry remains profitable, and somewhat impervious to the current climate.
The biggest draw factor for owning a franchise in today’s market is that because a franchise has a stable, successful business system and consistent products or services sitting below a brand which is recognisable, it’s more likely to continue to attract customers. Well-known brands and businesses have the upper hand when it comes to enticing customers to buy from them during hard financial times. Franchise brands in particular are renowned for consistency and quality, which results in both national and local confidence in the service provided.
Even with the continued disruption associated with Covid-19, and the turbulence we are still facing in 2021, owning a franchise remains a great business to pursue. There has never been a better time to reclaim your freedom and embark on a new career.
