This is the brief intro that all medical school graduates must read before downloading or going through their online pack on how to purchase a franchise operation. These graduates have studied optometry and now wish to go straight into private practice. They are young still, and they are ambitious. All good. Better to be ambitious than to be timid. It will be good for the economy. And it will be good for the patients.
And it will be good for your future business too. The optical shop franchise offers you the safer route of having to go it alone or enter into a partnership deal with fellow practitioners that you do not really know very well at all. You have done your medical training. You know all there is to know about the practice. But there was one thing that the school could not or would not teach you. How to run your own business.
You do not need to expend yourself further on college fees by registering for business school. Because by joining the franchise movement, you will be taught all of that anyhow. You will, however, need to raise the capital required. Generally speaking, it is never easy for the startup practitioner to approach banks, cap in hand, for a loan. It won’t be easy for those students who still have to cover their student loan fees.
But with the franchisor, you will receive all the help you need. You will be shown how. And you will be given recommendations. You will not have to think about branding exercises because that has been done already. You will not have to think about your optical shop’s infrastructure because that’s been taken care of already too. And you will be guided on where your services will be required.
