5 Franchising Myths to Roll Your Eyes At

If you’ve ever dreamed of owning your own business but ya don't know where to start, franchising might be the answer!

What's that, you say? You've heard some things and you're not so sure? Balderdash!

We're here to bust whatever myths you may have heard, starting with these 5 common ones:

Myth #1: Ya Gotta Have Previous Experience


Let's refresh ourselves on what a franchise is: an established business with a proven model that already has a customer base and offers partners training, guidance, and support to succeed.

It's kinda like getting a Loaded bowl: you're given a foundation and the pieces to build it up, no matter your background, so you can make it what you want it to be!

Myth #2: Franchises are for Corporate Sellouts

Hey now, no need for name-calling.

First of all, mega-corps aren't the only companies that offer franchises; plenty of franchisors are small businesses that saw lots of local growth and wider- spread demand, so they decided to branch out with partners. For instance, Loaded Pierogi started franchising at the specific request of happy customers who wanted in. Regardless, as a franchisee you automatically become a small business owner with your own ideals, you're just doing it by representing a brand.

Myth #3: No Freedom to Do it My Way
