How hospital consultants handle healthcare franchising

Hospitals in India need to understand that apart from running a centre for health care they are also a business. The more they develop the better medication and treatment they can provide. Hospital consultants consider healthcare franchising to be an effective means of expanding the business across the nation. We have almost 2000 homegrown Indian franchisors in various segments and over 2 lakh franchisees in India. It enhances your entrepreneurial potential of your franchisees and conserves your reserves too. This is one of the major reasons why hospital consultants advice healthcare franchising.

Creating successful Healthcare franchising includes high degree of intensive preparation and meticulous implementation. Hospital consultants have their own way of designing and executing franchise business models.

To start with consultants conduct a rigorous assessment of the existing practices to make sure that every aspect of the functioning can be replicated. Alongside they also evaluate the franchisor’s existing brand equity, plus they understand the promoters required expansion scale and the geographical network targeted. It is important to have consistency across all customer touch points. There needs to be a standardization of all processes and interfaces. Some important steps that hospital consultants take include -

Complete understanding of vision and goals for franchise expansion In-depth study of operations to assess documentation and standardization Study of the financial performance, customer profile and brand equity Indentifying areas which may require improvement before being -franchise-ready- Design and executed of improvements needed to develop appropriate capacity for successful expansion

As a lot of a planning and strategizing work happens on the franchisees in a franchising process, the franchisors offer the overall guidance and direction for the brand. Hospital consultants prepare a business plan that covers every activity that is required in the process. They also prepare separate plans at the franchise outlet level. A few important steps would be -

Understand the demand/supply scenario in required expansion locations Prepare a plan that sequences this expansion and connects it with the marketing activities Develop a franchisee business plan Design a strategy to attract and select franchisees Set up franchise terms Assist in preparation of the required legal agreements

The hospital consultants prepare a step by step guide for the franchisor and franchisee for every aspect of the business. The success of healthcare franchising depends hugely on the strength of the brand. This is got from consistently delivering the same quality in every outlet. The degree of standardization includes even nuances like identical stationery usage. The process involves a large number of modules such as interior design, operating procedures, HR policies, IT systems, branding and marketing plan, quality audit mechanism and pre-commissioning protocols.

Food Cart Businesses In The Philippines_1_2

Small businesses such as food cart businesses had become a very popular type of business in the Philippines. Part of the reason why is because of its affordability compared to other businesses, as well as its lower maintenance. This is the reason why the franchise industry of the Philippines had grown massively and has now given the Philippines the recognition as the franchise hub of Asia.

Food Cart Businesses in the Philippines
There have been a number of popular food carts found in almost every part of the Philippines. Popular foods sold in these small businesses usually involve those that are quick and easy to prepare such as siomais (dumplings), kwek-kwek (boiled fertilized duck egg wrapped in orange-colored breading), tokneneng (boiled quail eggs wrapped in orange-colored breading), fish balls, squid balls, and other popular street foods, such as burgers, friend noodles, shawarmas, and many more.

Because of the Filipinos love for food, small businesses such as food stall businesses became a successful hit for many Filipino entrepreneurs. And it was also because of this that the franchise industry had started to offer franchises for their food cart businesses, allowing more Filipinos the chance to start their own food cart businesses.

Benefits of Franchise Businesses
The advantage of franchise businesses compared to starting a business from the ground-up is that franchisees had the advantage of starting up quickly based on a proven trademark, and the tooling and infrastructure as opposed to developing them. The success of the franchisor is also the success of its franchisees.

As for the franchisors, the advantage of franchising is that it allows them to expand their business or brand through building chain stores while avoiding any investment and liability over a chain.

These advantages and benefits, along with affordability and profitability, franchised food cart businesses became a popular trend in the Philippines. However, other than the growing numbers of new business opportunities in the Philippines, another reason why businesses had become very popular in the Philippines is because of the financial support that many from the private sector had offered, such as Small business loans Philippines.

Supporting the Filipino People
BPI, one of the many banks in the Philippines known for its financial assistance services, had introduced another loaning service which aims to provide financial assistance for Filipino entrepreneurs in their efforts of starting a new business, or by franchising a popular food cart business. This is with their Ka-Negosyo Small business loans Philippines services.

With their Small business loans Philippines, many Filipinos can now have the chance to start their own small business to assist them in their lives, or to franchise a successful business which will allow them to rise up in society and live comfortably with their businesses.

Making huge investments for buying a franchise may not spell success for budding entrepreneurs. However, there is more risk involved in buying an expensive franchise unit as compared to taking up a low-cost kiosk.

Low-cost kiosk format

Kiosks are small-sized shops, having a semi-permanent fixture. They are mostly present within a larger establishment such as a mall, departmental store etc. The structure of a kiosk could be designed as a standalone structure like a terminal, or a semi-enclosed booth. It offers a wide variety along with the advantage of low investment. The article enlightens aspiring entrepreneurs about low-cost kiosk franchise opportunity in various business formats.

Coffee kiosk franchise

The last few years have witnessed an upswing in the coffee culture brewing across the nation. Major companies like Coffee Day Xpress, Brewberrys and Gloria Jean’s Coffee etc have started their coffee kiosk after seeing its low-cost multi benefits. The trend of coffee kiosks has gained tremendous popularity. The key to any such venture is finding out a good location that will give maximum benefit to the sales of coffee. Adding other items such as pastries, sandwiches etc can also promote low-cost coffee kiosk.

Candy kiosk

Candy kiosks attract kids by their enticing and eye-catching colours and presentation. Candy Treats, Sweet World etc are the main players in this section. This format is usually launched in malls and airports etc.

Ice-cream kiosk

Ice-cream kiosks format is another popular category which is gaining popularity in the current scenario. Most of the major players have adopted kiosks and cartwheel formats in ice-cream section. Kwality Walls, Baskin Robbins, Vadilal’s, Amul, Gelato Vinto etc are a few names in this section. Quick service restaurant chain Nirula’s has also started its standalone ice-cream kiosk model.

Chocolate kiosk

Chocolate kiosks are also catching up speed in the present business scenario. At present there are few kiosks in this format but this is an up-coming concept with great future prospects. Chocolate kiosk can provide entrepreneurs with the right franchising opportunity in terms of low investment and high gains.

Juice and cookies kiosk

A kiosk in juice and cookies category is also a lucrative option for aspiring franchisees. Today, consumers have become very health-conscious. This awareness has led to the opening of many juice bars in the country. Similarly branded cookies are also catching up with Indian preferences. Mr. Orange is a prominent player in the juice kiosk while Cookie Man comes under the cookie section.

Are You A Suitable Franchisee_1_2_3

ARE YOU A SUITABLE FRANCHISEE?
Be realistic about your suitability as a franchisee. To be a successful franchisee you need to be a committed team player with sufficient funding for the business. Prior industry experience is less important than attitude and commitment. Some franchisors actually prefer their franchisees to have no directly relevant experience in the business because re-training mature people can be an arduous challenge.
Individuality

Do you always insist upon doing things your own way or are you comfortable following someone elses procedures? Successful franchisees are usually more team-oriented than individual. Franchisees are obligated to conform to the franchisors established systems and procedures (as stated in their operations manual). Adherence to the systems ensures uniformity throughout the franchise network. If you prefer to devise your own systems and product lines you may not be an appropriate franchisee; if so, maybe you should consider starting your own business or buying an independent going concern.

Total Investment

Sufficient funding is essential for a franchised outlet. The franchisor will provide the business know-how, systems, training and use of the trademark but the franchisee funds the operation of the outlet. The Total Investment includes not only the franchise license fee, but also any leasehold improvements, lease security deposit, capital expenditure and working capital requirements. For example, the Total Investment of a 7-Eleven franchise may be THB3m, half of which is accounted for by the franchise license fee. The franchisor usually discourages the franchisee from getting a loan to finance the investment because the loan interest increases the possibility of failure.

Objectives

What are your objectives in becoming a franchisee? If it is simply to get a good return on your investment, then a franchise may not be the right investment tool for you. A franchise is an active investment that requires the franchisee’s participation in management. There are other less demanding investment vehicles than a franchise. Get involved in a franchise if you want to get a good return in the process of running an ongoing business.

Low Cost Franchise Businesses Opportunities_1_2_3_4_5_6

Franchising is considered as one of the most successful business opportunities, especially in low cost franchise businesses for aspiring entrepreneurs. Such a business is based on a proven idea. You can check how successful other franchises are before committing yourself. However, it should always be kept in mind that franchising offer all types of business opportunities with high or low investments.
It is a myth to believe that more investment means more profits. The biggest reason is the amount of the investment is largely a function of the kind of industry you are in. Take for instance McDonalds. A potential owner needs to own a space or building, have plenty of parking around it, set up a drive-through, and spend on signage, furniture, machinery and several other costs. Ultimately, the products on the menu range between Rs 25 to Rs 75. This makes McDonalds one of the most expensive franchises to own. The case is similar with retail franchise of popular brands.
Low cost franchises, on the other hand are a lot less demanding. There is lesser investment on space, one has the choice of working from home and this ensures high opportunity and low investment. There are tutoring businesses, consultancies, cafes and even some retail options that one can opt for depending on skill and interest.
There are several franchise companies that provide excellent business opportunities at reasonably low cost. To name a few in India, these are:
Education sector: Hello Kids Education Inc., Aisect Ltd, Edu-masters Training Institute
Retail sector: Anshu’s Clothing Pvt Ltd., La Mode, Us Dollar Store Inc.

Service sector: Florista, Ferns n Petals, Sparket Marketing Private Limited.

Food & Beverage sector: Gelato Vinto, Cafe Buddy’s Foods Pvt. Ltd., Cafe Frespresso
All of the above mentioned are just a few amongst many franchise business opportunities that require an overall investment of under Rs 10 lakh.
These are a few pointers to consider when taking up a low cost franchise;
Get some legal help to understand the clauses and conditions of the particular business model.

Do not go beyond your budget and keep buffer money in case of an emergency.

Evaluate your business properly to understand its position in the market.

A low cost franchise does not mean a small business. If the idea of franchising appeals to you, explore your option and choose a business opportunity that you like. You dont always need a lot of money to set up a successful business, some planning and low investment can go a long way.

Advantages Of Franchise Businesses In The Philippines_1_2

Franchising is a popular trend in the Philippines today, and one of the many reasons as to why it gained a lot of popularity among Filipinos is because of its many opportunities. Here are some of those:

Quick ROI (Return of Investment)
One of the many popular benefits of franchise business Philippines is because of its faster ROI or Return of Investment compared to start-up businesses. Part of the reason why is because franchised businesses have already established a name in the market which makes them reliable in their market, unlike that of starting a business from the ground-up which would take a lot of time and effort.

Successful Business
In addition to its faster ROI, another reason why franchising became popular in the Philippines is because of its successful business model. According to business experts, the main advantage of franchising is that it allows its owners to start up quickly based on an already proven trademark, which is unlike that of starting their own business from scratch.

Lesser Maintenance Efforts
One of the reason why franchise business in the Philippines had gained a lot of popularity in the Philippines is because of its lesser maintenance efforts, particularly for food-cart or food-stall businesses. The reason why is that all of its marketing efforts as well as branding had been arranged by its franchisor. Some franchisors in the Philippines would even offer their services to register their franchisees business and arrange all its legal papers. This makes it easier for Filipinos to start their business quickly.

Availability
Another popular reason why franchise businesses had gained a lot of popularity in the country, particularly with food-cart or food-stall businesses in the Philippines. Because of hundreds of franchising companies in the Philippines that offer different brands of franchise businesses, particularly food-cart businesses, Filipinos have the freedom to choose which business suits their passion. Such as if with foods, Filipinos can choose from a wide variety of food-stuffs.

Business Loans
In addition to other benefits, business loans are also the reason why franchise businesses had gained a lot of popularity. A popular example is Ka-Negosyo by BPI.

Ka-Negosyo can offer flexible business loans which offers its clients choices of which plans can accommodate their franchise business Philippines needs, allowing it to cover the franchise cost itself, as well as its overhead expenses, such as its legal papers and registration, rent for its location, as well as its construction (if needed).
