Between our years of practice in both the hydraulics industry and the franchise space, the PIRTEK team have become experts in the entire business ownership experience. When you own a mobile hydraulics franchise with PIRTEK, you should be fully prepared for the road ahead. Let’s take a look at some of the most common mistakes made by novice franchisees, how to avoid them, and what PIRTEK does to get you on the right track.
1. Trying to Sprint Straightaway
Although the franchise experience provides business owners with the resources to get a leg up on the competition, there is still a lot to learn. One of the most crucial stages of the experience is the franchisor training program. Before you open your business to clients, your franchisor will want to guide you through the grand opening, goal setting, background about your brand, and more.
At PIRTEK, we understand the importance of pacing. That is why we have provided a tiered investment model that allows franchisees to start small and grow. Tier 2 is a perfect investment for franchisees who would like to own a mobile hydraulics franchise. This investment includes mobile service vehicles, while a Tier 1 investment includes those plus a physical PIRTEK store location. Business ownership is a marathon, not a sprint, and our team knows the importance of setting yourself up for future success and growth. PIRTEK investment models accommodate your situation accordingly.
2. Straying from an Established System
Did you know that most small businesses struggle or even fail in the first couple of years due to a lack of infrastructure? Creating and following through with a system is vital, no matter the size or type of business you operate. This is one element that, with proper follow-through, can put your business at an incredible advantage. One mistake franchisees have made is straying from the system the franchisor has put in place and taking the process into their own hands. Don’t get us wrong, there are definitely aspects of the franchise experience that can be personalized..
On the other hand, it benefits franchise owners, especially into the first years of operation, to follow through with the franchisor’s established system. At PIRTEK, we have spent years perfecting our model to give investors interested in owning a mobile hydraulics franchise a realistic opportunity. Our team will help you learn what it takes to run a thriving hydraulics business.
3. Suffering in Silence
Another significant benefit of a franchise business ownership opportunity is having a full corporate support team ready to answer your questions. We encourage all PIRTEK franchisees to lean on our support when needed and not wait until matters escalate to more substantial obstacles. Independent start-up businesses don’t always have this luxury. Regardless of how long your business has been in operation or if you have owned a mobile repair franchise in the past, it’s always good to ask for help. Our team is ready to answer any questions you may have about your PIRTEK franchise to put you in the best position for future success. After your training, you should feel confident and ready to get started. When you own a mobile hydraulic franchise with PIRTEK, you are joining our team. Consistent communication and feedback help our entire team improve, so you will never be left in the dark.
