Is Buying a Franchise Really Worth It? The Alternative to Franchising That Could Save You Thousands!


Have you ever dreamt of owning a business? Does the idea of running a startup seem too risky? Well, if so then you may have considered buying a franchise as a viable option.

Investopedia defines a franchise as “a business whereby the owner licenses its operations—along with its products, branding, and knowledge—in exchange for a franchise fee.” Essentially you are paying for the right to use a business brand and business model in hopes that it will be profitable.

With a large network and an already recognizable brand, could there be downsides to buying such an established company?

While franchises can certainly be successful some franchise owners face problems that aren’t always talked about to potential buyers.

We will be discussing the bottlenecks that potential franchise owners face and the lucrative alternative solution that will allow you to have freedom over your business!

Having both control and the proper guidance is essential for many business owners. That’s why for some, owning a CNC laser business from a company like AP Lazer may be a smarter option.

Franchise Vs Small Business

Franchises can be expensive, with initial fees ranging from tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of dollars. In addition to these upfront costs, franchisees are often required to pay ongoing royalties to the franchisor.

Ap Lazer Gives You the Freedom to Choose

With a franchise, business owners are often limited to the products and services that are offered by the franchisor.

With AP Lazer you have the freedom to tap into any market you would like and you have the advantage of using personalization as your catalyst for success. Our open architecture design is the first of its kind allowing you to engrave nearly anything at any size and weight and AP Lazer will help guide you through the lucrative and fast growing, recession-proof markets including:

  • Alcoholic Beverage Market
  • Home Market
  • Funeral Market
  • Pet Market
  • Fundraising Market
  •  Local Retail Shops
  • and any more!

With a franchise, business owners are often limited to the products and services that are offered by the franchisor.

People pay a premium for products they can connect to and with AP Lazer, your businesses can engrave love, memories, inspiration, and happiness onto almost any product, instantly turning an ordinary product into an emotional treasure.

The Support Business Owners Need

AP Lazer features marketing guides, 24/7/365 tech support (yes, even on Christmas!) and unlimited trainings that teach and, if necessary, reteach you on how to become a professional with your equipment.

Tech Support And Phonenumber

Franchises may not offer 24/7 tech support and unlimited training, something that is vital for new business owners to help them solve their problems accurately and efficiently.

The AP Lazer Community

Many franchisors have systems in place for franchisees to share best practices and ideas, which can be particularly valuable for those who are new to entrepreneurship. This can be a great way to learn from the successes and mistakes of others and continually improve the performance of your business.

AP Lazer takes it a step further and creates a community in which you have access to trainings, workshops and Facebook groups that help you create priceless relationships.
