Franchising opportunity

What Makes For a Perfect Franchising Opportunity?

feb24blog-rr

Both new and established business owners love franchises because they take a lot of the guesswork out of any enterprise. When you start with a successful business model in place, complete with marketing and pricing guidelines you can turn to, there is far less chance that your new company will fail.

However, within different franchise systems there are a lot of different choices and varieties. How do you find the business that’s right for your needs?

Here are four key variables that we think go into the perfect franchise opportunity:

1. You want a business that’s growing quickly. Although stable or even declining businesses can sometimes do well, you have more potential for growth if you get into a franchise – and an industry – that’s rising quickly. Ideally, you should look for a business that has the potential to catch on very quickly in your area because it’s something that lots of different people, or companies, can use on a regular basis.

2. Your franchise operation should be virtually turnkey. One of the biggest benefits of a strong franchise is that you don’t have to figure out everything for yourself. That’s why the best companies make new ownership a virtually turnkey process. When you make an investment and open your doors, they help you do the rest.

3. Your new business should be in an open market. Lots of people launch franchises in very crowded markets, especially when it comes to things like fast food. But why deal with competitors on every corner when you could own the market that you’re in? Our partners are fortunate that we face virtually no epoxy flooring competition on the national level.

4. There should be a reasonable start up investment. Even if you have lots of capital to invest, why tie so much of it up into one venture? With a reasonable buy-in figure, you can leave more of your money available for other opportunities, or even launch multiple franchise locations at the same time.

As you’ve probably figured out by now, we bring up the elements of a great franchising opportunity because REDRHINO is looking for new business owners to help us grow our brand across the country. If you think it’s an opportunity that might be right for you, get in touch with our office today and let us send you our entrepreneur’s toolkit.

Why Franchising is a Great Way to Start a Business

Statistics have shown that, year after year, a higher percentage of franchise businesses make it than their “go-it-alone” counterparts. What’s more, even within the realm of all successful start-ups, franchises tend to get moving faster and stay more profitable.

What is it that makes franchising such a strong business model, and why have so many successful business owners used them to turn their entrepreneurial dreams into a reality?

Every situation is different, of course, but here are a few of the reasons that a franchise can be a great way to start a business:

To begin with a successful, established business model. Probably the hardest part about starting a business is not knowing whether your idea is strong enough to succeed. With a franchise model, though, you don’t have to wonder – the business has already been proven by others, in many different locations. That takes the biggest risk out of the equation.

Franchises can be set up and opened more quickly. In the same way, because there is already a template for a profitable business in place, you don’t have to start from scratch when opening your company. Instead, you can simply follow the steps that others have followed. That’s important when you’re trying to get your business up and running, and put your capital to use and earn a return, rather than watching the costs pile up week after week and month after month.

Marketing plans and techniques are already established. Even businesses with strong, potentially profitable ideas can fail without the right marketing in place. After all, no customers means no revenue. By following a successful franchise model, though, you can take advantage of what others have learned about marketing your type of business before you, and duplicate their success in the same way.

Franchise owners have easy access to advice when they need it most. This is an underrated part of operating a franchise business. When you seem to be facing a very tough situation or challenge, you always have someone else to turn to for advice – in fact, you have someone who probably knows the answer because they’ve been there before. That means you’re unlikely to run into something that you can’t handle quickly and easily, and that makes running your new business a lot less stressful.

Are you looking for an established franchise with the possibility for high profit margins? If so, opening a RedRhino epoxy flooring location could be your best business move. Download our potential investor packet now and see whether we have the right opportunity for you.

One Way RedRhino Makes Epoxy Flooring Installation Easier

At REDRHINO Epoxy Flooring, we know that excellence in business isn’t just about doing great work, but also how you do it. In other words, if you have a fantastic product or service, that’s only a good start – it’s how you deliver it to your customers that ultimately makes them want to come back to you time and time again.

That’s why we do something that most of our competitors can’t or won’t and install epoxy flooring around your schedule.

For most businesses, whether they are retail shops, manufacturing centers, or other types of companies, there isn’t ever a good time to close the doors for a few days or longer. In fact, any unplanned downtime usually costs the company money, and it can take a while to clear out employees, furniture, technology, and anything else that’s on top of your existing flooring. Add in the hours or days needed for preparation, and it’s easy to see why scheduling epoxy flooring installation can quickly become a headache.

However, because we know that your time is money, our team is used to working around unusual constraints. That means we can show up and deal with your epoxy flooring when other contractors won’t, including:

• During long weekends when your store or facility is normally closed
• In the evening when employees and customers aren’t going to be in the way (even overnight)
• While your team is away for training, or on a holiday break

We want to make it easy for you to make the right decision and work with us. That’s why we make convenience a priority on every job, no matter how small or large. You shouldn’t have to turn your business upside down to get a safer, better-looking floor.

Epoxy Floors From REDRHINO

At REDRHINO Flooring, we specialize in providing high quality epoxy floors. Epoxy is easily the most durable floor covering available. This makes epoxy the best choice for a floor covering in most industrial and commercial businesses. Epoxy holds up amazingly well to chemical spills, even those containing harsh acids or salts that would normally eat away most other floor coatings. Epoxy also stands up well to repeated scouring with the strongest cleaners on the market. Epoxy floors are not damaged by repeated mechanical friction so they are ideal for heavy industrial use such as fork lift traffic. Epoxy floor coatings will literally last for years under almost any industrial use. Of course, long-lasting also translates to economical.

Epoxy floor coatings also make a very attractive floor. They are seamless and maintain a lustrous glow giving the impression of a bright clean look. Epoxy floors are very easily cleaned so it is easy to keep them looking in tip top shape. Epoxy floors can also be customized with different colors and patterns. This makes them ideal to be used in areas where visual impact truly matters such as car showrooms or business waiting rooms. These customized epoxy floors can make a lasting positive impression on customers. In fact, our residential customers also love the look of our customized epoxy floors. Epoxy floor coatings are also perfect for muli-purpose rooms at schools and churches that can get quite a bit of abuse over time.

At RedRhino Flooring, we are very proud of our high customer satisfaction. We have been in business since 1995 so we have a great deal of experience installing epoxy floors. We guarantee excellent workmanship and we put customer satisfaction at the front and center of every job we do, big or small. We’d be happy to answer any questions you might have about our services and epoxy floor coatings. We can also inspect your location to give you a better idea of what we can offer.

Is It Better to Have a Bigger Epoxy Flooring Company to Work With?

feb17blog-rr

The vast majority of epoxy flooring installation in North America is done by teams of small vendors. In fact, the concept of a nationally known and trusted service like the one RedRhino offers is fairly new.

But, if you’re a business owner or property manager, you might be wondering whether it’s better, or even worse, to work with a big epoxy flooring company?

The short answer, of course, is that it doesn’t really matter whether the flooring business you choose is large, small, or somewhere in between – what matters is the service and value you’re getting. But, along those lines, most of our customers do think there are a few advantages to working with a company like ours:

Established epoxy flooring companies have a track record you can look at. As we’ve noted on our blog in the past, epoxy flooring chemicals can be difficult to work with. You don’t want to simply trust a vendor when they tell you that they know how to prepare surfaces or handle installation; you’ll sleep better knowing that they have a proven track record you can examine.

You can be confident you’re working with a vendor who can handle any job. You can feel secure that a company like ours can handle your epoxy flooring project because hundreds of others have, including some of the biggest name brands in North America. Not many other companies can make that claim, but don’t you want to work with experts you can trust to do the job right the first time?

A bigger firm can afford to stand behind its guarantees. Lots of companies like to offer guarantees and warranties on epoxy flooring that they can’t actually back up, either because they don’t have the resources or because they won’t be around when problems start showing up on your floors. A business like REDRHINO offers guarantees of value that actually protect you in the event you ever need them.

The question isn’t necessarily whether you should be working with a bigger epoxy flooring company, but whether you’re working with the best one. If you aren’t sure, now is the perfect time to call us and get a quote.

Why Do So Many Large Companies Work with RedRhino for Epoxy Flooring?

rr-blog-mar18

Given that REDRHINO is relatively new in the field of epoxy flooring, why is it that so many big businesses and established brands decide to work with us? How have we become a leader in the industry so quickly, with high-profile finished projects all throughout North America?

Every project and situation is different, of course, but here are the things we think our clients really appreciate about our epoxy flooring service:

The very best in epoxy flooring materials. We simply refuse to cut corners on epoxy flooring products. Even though some of the cheaper coatings you can get might look just as good initially, they aren’t going to last over time, and we have built our reputation on doing for our customers what we would want for ourselves.

Highly trained technicians. A lot of new clients don’t understand just how sensitive epoxy flooring chemicals can be. If they aren’t applied correctly – or if your space isn’t thoroughly cleaned, stripped, and prepared – your epoxy flooring won’t be very durable. Our highly trained technicians know what it takes to get the most of every product we use.

Competitive pricing on commercial and industrial projects. In epoxy flooring, as with most businesses, taking shortcuts just leads to more time and expense later. By doing things right the first time, we are able to remain incredibly competitive, despite offering superior products and services than virtually any other flooring company.

Unbeatable efficiency and timing. When scheduling work, we find times that are convenient for your business and schedule. That means our crews often install epoxy flooring overnight, on weekends, and during holidays to avoid or minimize disruption to your company.

Strong epoxy flooring warranties and guarantees. Unlike a lot of epoxy flooring companies, we don’t offer meaningless warranties that are easy to void, or give you guarantees that we can’t stand behind later. When you work with us, you can feel assured that we’re going to be around if you need us in the future.

Five-star follow-up and customer service. A lot of local epoxy flooring companies can’t provide follow-up service because they won’t be in business a few years from now. Our team will be, though, and we’ll be ready to answer any of your questions before, during, and after the job has been completed.

Expoxy flooring warranty
The RedRhino Warranty

At RedRhino, we are working hard every day for our reputation as your number one choice for epoxy flooring. As part of that commitment, we think it's important to stand behind our products and our work.

You may notice that some of our competitors claim to give "lifetime" guarantees on flooring. But, once you read the fine print, you find that their promises don't really stand up to their marketing. Look a little further into the reviews, and you'll find that you can't be sure they'll stand behind their flooring for more than a few years… if they are even still in business.

Using warranties from epoxy flooring manufacturers can be difficult, as well. Although most do guarantee their products for a certain amount of time, those guarantees depend on very precise (and occasionally, unrealistic) application settings involving temperature, humidity, concrete surface preparation, etc.

We understand the frustration that customers feel when dealing with these issues, which is why we offer a more straightforward warranty package than anyone in our industry. We can do this because we understand the intricacies of epoxy flooring, and make sure that our teams are trained professionally. They won't apply resin until your floor is ready, and won't rush through the job because they know you need it for years to come.

To find out more about our seven-year guarantee, and why RedRhino is different from other flooring companies,
call us today at 800-806-5508.
