Are you tired of working 9-5, inside a stale office, for someone else? Have you thought about becoming a BirthdayPak franchise owner? Many franchise owners were first BirthdayPak recipients when their curiosity was piqued about starting a franchise. But the elements have to be just right – and the process involves both the potential franchise owner and BirthdayPak to mutually agree it’s a good fit.
Franchise owners are often drawn to BirthdayPak to achieve a work-life balance. While that’s a high priority, there’s much more to consider. Below are qualities sought out in potential franchise owners that we believe set them up for success.
At BirthdayPak, having strong connections with business partners and relating how BirthdayPak can impact their business’s bottom line is important. Franchise owners need to be outgoing and have a sales and marketing mindset to succeed. Most BirthdayPak franchise owners have experience in sales, advertising or marketing, or previously owned other businesses.
Strong Work Ethic
Behind BirthdayPak are passionate individuals willing to work hard, especially for the first couple of years to get the franchise established. Chad Bickle, BirthdayPak Vice President of Franchisee Operations, says franchise owners need to be good planners and know each restaurant they are prospecting as potential business partners. This means doing thorough research to learn the names of the owner/manager and food price points. In sales, multiple touchpoints are needed since franchise owners often hear ‘no’ more than ‘yes.’ It could take up to 5-10 times before a prospect will start to listen, and make the commitment.
“We have several franchise owners with long-term markets who have seen tremendous success,” says Chad. “After a year or two of hard work as the zones and market are built, BirthdayPak can become a self-sustained business and a part-time job with the potential for a six-figure salary.”
Entrepreneurial Drive, with Willingness to Follow a Proven Model
BirthdayPak franchise owners have drive, are self-motivated and goal-oriented. They generally have a lot of freedom and flexibility and work from home on a regular basis. Franchise owners are their own boss, but instead of creating everything from the ground up, it’s laid out with a model to follow. BirthdayPak believes in getting franchise owners up to speed quickly, which is why support and training are paramount to success.
Wide Network, Ability to Connect with Influencers & Foodie
While not required, experience in the hospitality industry is an added benefit. In addition, knowing or being able to connect with key influencers, such as chamber members, business managers/owners and members of the National Restaurant Association, also helps. And since the majority of BirthdayPak business partners are restaurants, being a foodie serves to connect with business partners on a personal level.
There’s never been a better time to become a BirthdayPak franchise owner! BirthdayPak is an award-winning franchise and rapidly expanding across the country. The BirthdayPak franchise is also relatively low-cost: Low overhead and a franchise fee between $30,000 – $40,000, with financing available for those who meet financial requirements.
