Recipient Loves BirthdayPak Enough to Buy a Franchise!
way I made my decision to buy my BirthdayPak franchise is I was a recipient of
BirthdayPak. I lived in Pennsylvania where BirthdayPak first started and then I
moved to Oklahoma. I got one that had come with my mail forwarded from
Pennsylvania and I got excited to try new restaurants! I opened it up and I was
so sad because it was with my Philadelphia mail. At that point I realized I
could buy a franchise. So I did! I knew it worked, I had been a recipient
before and I could get excited about it!” – Lisa Whittington, BirthdayPak of Oklahoma

Dallas is the 9th most populous city in the U.S. with a metro area coming in as the 4th largest. In 2017-2018, the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington area gained more residents than any other metropolitan area in the country. And by 2040, it’s projected that 10.9 million people will be living in North Texas – a 53.5% increase over the next 25 years.

Dallas: A Great American Food City
Dallas may be known for steakhouses and Tex-Mex, but it has proven to be so much more. While its food scene was once overlooked, many top-tier publications have taken notice. Zagat ranked Dallas-Fort Worth #16 in their “30 Most Exciting Food Cities in America” in 2017. GQ named Dallas the “Next Best New Food City” and Bon Appétit awarded it “Restaurant City of the Year” in 2019. The Food Network describes Dallas as “a city with a well-rounded palate that welcomes chefs, cuisines and restaurants of all kinds.” And Forbes calls Dallas “a decidedly foodie city.”

While many sectors contribute to the area’s rich economy, we can’t overlook the restaurant sector. In 2018, more than 48,000 eating and drinking establishments in Texas provided $66 billion in estimated sales. Upwards of 1.3 million restaurant and food service jobs made up 10% of the state’s employment in 2019. That number is expected to grow by 15.2% by 2029. This is relevant for the Dallas-Fort Worth metro area in particular since it makes up more than a quarter of the state’s population.

Think About Your End Goal
When thinking about starting a new business, it’s important to take a long-term view and know your end goal. It helps set the course for your new venture and gives you something to aspire to achieve. For example, do you want to start a business from scratch or are you considering a franchise? Do you want to enjoy a better work-life balance? Fulfill a life-long ambition or passion? Whatever your goal, keep it at the forefront as you explore your options and throughout the buying process.
Consider Your Skills and Passions
What are you good at or passionate about? Then sell it. At BirthdayPak, we often hear our franchise owners say they are “passionate about the product and helping businesses grow.” Most have sales backgrounds, and that’s a skill that can create a thriving business. But sales can be more than just products. It can be ideas, experiences, knowledge, talents or even a hobby. Think about the skills and passions you possess, then how you can sell them to build a business.
Connect with Other Like-Minded Entrepreneurs
Surround yourself with other successful entrepreneurs by attending networking events and establishing new connections on LinkedIn or through mutual colleagues. Their experience and knowledge can translate into actionable steps for you when starting your new business. They can also provide advice and insight to help you make the right decisions and set you up for success from the beginning. If you’re interested in a franchise, talk to a franchise consultant or other franchise owners.
Set Aside Time Each Day Working Toward Your New Business
Starting your own business means putting in the time to
build it. Spend at least an hour a day exploring your business idea or opportunities
and taking steps to make it a reality. Draft your business plan, build your website,
take a course, write a pitch letter or research franchise businesses that would
be a good fit. Create goals that can be accomplished within a certain
