What to Expect When Buying an Existing Daycare Business?

As much as you want to become a daycare business owner, you may feel like the path to opening a business is an uphill battle. While franchising offers a shortcut that allows you to skip over a number of hurdles, it still takes time to begin reaping the rewards of your hard work. 

However, buying a franchise resale is a faster route to business ownership that also lowers your risk in a number of ways. If you’re looking into buying an existing daycare business from Discovery Point, you can count on experiencing the many advantages that come with investing in a business with a proven track record and an established reputation in the community.

Why Entrepreneurs Often Consider Franchise Resales

Franchise resales are generally considered to offer the ideal mix of risk reduction and reward generation. Here’s why:

Foundations are in place for solid business operations

Putting the infrastructure of a business into place, taking steps to recruit and train staff, and building a client base are some of the most time-consuming aspects of ramping up to opening day of any new business. 

Buying a resale franchise location saves you time and money, not to mention energy, which are all resources that can be better spent on actually operating your business and turning a profit. 

Better initial financial returns

When you open a new franchise, it’s generally best to put off your hopes of taking home a salary for at least a year. Franchise resales are different in that they already have an established customer base and brand recognition. Rather than having to wait for these two elements to grow, you can hit the ground running and start enjoying a financial return from day one.

Existing data to help make business decisions

Before you choose to purchase a franchise resale, you’ll have the chance to analyze the history of the business, including years worth of financial records. You’ll be able to make a decision about your investment with much more information at hand than you would if you were to take the risk of opening a new business in a new location.

Your experience with purchasing a resale franchise will of course depend on the franchise location you take over and the franchisor you choose to partner with.
