Franchising in Ghana

Franchising is the licensing out of a business name, product, technique, philosophy, trademark, etc, for a percentage of the income. Instead of setting up new outlets as part of your expansion, you license your existing business blueprint out to franchisees who then set up and manage it for you.

The benefits of franchising your business in Ghana include: more freedom, as the franchisee takes on major responsibilities; minimal expense; lower cost and higher profits; potential for fast growth; brand building.

Disadvantages of franchising a business in Ghana: although few, is that you must rely on your franchisees. They include: poor quality franchisees; franchisees not declaring all income; poor performance.

Ghana encourages franchising, which is promotes as a fast and efficient avenue for business expansion. It is the preferred way for entrepreneurs interested in starting their own business while relying on the commercial experience and brand name of the parent chain.
