How many small business owners get to open their doors for the first time knowing that for the life of their business, they’ll have industry experts to turn to for guidance, advice, encouragement, and more? Well, that’s precisely what you can expect when you join the Children’s Lighthouse brand as a franchisee.
Our ongoing franchisee support means you’ll always stay on top of industry trends, will always have access to a cache of marketing materials, and will always enjoy the competitive advantages that come with the Children’s Lighthouse name. Here, we’ll take a closer look at what you should expect from franchisor support in general and how Children’s Lighthouse goes the distance.
What Does Franchisor Support Mean?
Starting a small business is a typically time-consuming process that involves a lot in the way of resources and energy, especially if you’re going it alone. One of the distinct advantages of a franchise brand partnership, however, is that as a franchisee, you can (or should) look forward to support from the brand’s experts. A brand partnership means you’ll gain access to their business model to help you take the guesswork out of things and to establish your business more easily. Part of that model will include a breakdown of guidance and support you can rely on as a franchisee. Some of this support typically comes in the way of:
- Site selection advice and guidance
- Access to vendor relationships for inventory and supplies
- Digital and other marketing support
- An operations manual that details processes and procedures
- Regular networking opportunities
- And more
The fact is, you can tell a lot about a brand, its value, and its commitment to franchisee success by how well-developed its support system is, so one of the first things a potential investor should look at is what kind of ongoing support their investment will buy.
Our Children’s Lighthouse School Starts with In-Depth Training
Our commitment to our franchisees is rock solid and starts from the moment they sign their franchise agreements with us. Before their franchise doors open, they can expect to see comprehensive pre-opening training that brings them up to speed on everything they need to know about how to open and run their Children’s Lighthouse franchise successfully. This training takes place at our Franchise Support Center, where franchisees learn how to execute our proprietary curriculum, manage their school classrooms, market their schools to reach their best customers, and much, much more.
Our leadership team is made up of franchising and childcare experts who have unique insight into our industry, a valuable resource our franchisees can turn to time and time again for the life of their businesses. We help them partner with approved vendors for the supplies and furnishings they’ll need, and our team of Franchise Business Coaches is at the ready to help our franchisees with more training as needed. They can also look forward to multiple on-site visits per year to help them set and reach goals, assist with classroom management strategies, and keep them up to speed on best practices.
A Team Approach
Success doesn’t happen in a vacuum. It often takes the concerted efforts of people who believe in what they’re doing together and are committed to the outcome. The Children’s Lighthouse brand is that team of people, and when you become part of it, you can count on it to be there for you, every step of the way.
