Are you tired of the corporate life? Working long hours on someone else’s schedule for someone else’s gain can feel like a thankless and fruitless endeavor. Going into business for yourself is a great way to find career satisfaction, but which industry to choose? Purchasing an indoor family entertainment franchise is a great way to build your own business with the guidance and assistance of a well-established brand. Starlite Family Fun Centers have been operating for decades, and we know just what it takes to help new franchisees get their businesses up and running. With a host of training and support resources, we believe there’s no easier way to open a family entertainment center than by franchising with us. We do our best to make this opportunity accessible to applicants from a variety of backgrounds. Still, there are a number of important qualities we look for in our franchisees, and we’ll show you just what we’re looking for in a franchise investor.
Wants to Work with Children
It’s true that owning an indoor family entertainment franchise comes with a good deal of flexibility. For instance, our franchisees can decide for themselves when they’d like to work and what tasks they’d like to delegate to their trusted staff. However, running a Family Fun Center still means you’re in a business heavily centered around children and their parents! It’s important that our franchisees care about the families they serve. If you like kids, you’ll find plenty of opportunity to work around them when you purchase a Starlite indoor family entertainment franchise.
Has a Management Background
As an indoor family entertainment franchise owner, you’ll be responsible for hiring and managing a strong staff. You can’t manage every task on your own, so it’s important that your staff can be trusted with the day-to-day jobs needed to keep your Family Fun Center running. Understanding how to manage and motivate a team is an important skill our franchisees should possess.
Good People Skills
When you operate a Starlite Family Fun Center, you’ll work with others regularly. If you have experience in sales or customer service, these skills will be put to use! You’ll be the one in charge of managing your franchise, so it’s important that you’re ready to work alongside others who will help you grow your business. Whether it’s our corporate team, vendors and suppliers, your employees, or your customers, nurturing strong relationships is an important part of running an indoor family entertainment franchise.
Financially Qualified for an Indoor Family Entertainment Franchise
Just like starting any new business, opening an indoor family entertainment franchise requires a significant investment. We’ll review your financial standing to ensure that you’re well-equipped to manage an investment in one of our franchises. When you invest in a franchise, it’s true that you’ll be expected to pay franchise fees. However, these fees allow us to support you throughout the process of opening your business. It also entitles you to utilize our time-tested business plan. Thus, franchising with Starlite Family Fun will help you to save time and money compared to starting a business from scratch.
