How to Start a Starbucks Franchise
A Starbucks business is noted as one of the biggest coffee restaurants in the world.
Though this corporation does not usually open its store for franchises, an aspiring Starbucks franchisee can still be able to apply for a franchise by following these guidelines.
The notion that Starbucks does not actually open its business for franchising is a fact. But despite of this fact, a business site emphasizes that there are other opportunities for an aspiring franchisee to be in touch with the Starbucks Corporation. If we review the license agreement of the Starbucks Corporation, we can see in one of its rules that it can allow a smaller company to operate by selling Starbucks quality products. The people under this venture have to bear in mind though that even they are able to sell Starbucks products, the operation is still solely owned by the Starbucks Corporation. Another possible way is through a joint venture scheme, which allows the interested company to line up itself with the Starbucks Corporation with high hopes of having a good relationship with the mentioned coffee company.
Another business-related site offers some tips on how to get in touch with one of the world’s leading coffee corporations. It offers four tips on how to have an opportunity to link with Starbucks.
One advice the business-related site emphasized is for an aspiring franchisee to get some good and strategic space for the business. The mentioned Internet site advises to get a location in places such as an airport, hospital, resort or university. The good thing in here, still according to the site, is that these places have a great multitude of potential Starbucks customers, but there may be no chance for the Starbucks Company itself to open its own branch there. By choosing a good and strategic place for the business, you may arouse the interest of the Starbucks Corporation to link with your business.
Another advice says that the aspiring franchisee should be able to conceptualize a business that sells products or services that would coincide with what Starbucks sells. You may require larger retail space for this one. One can sell in this business anything related to coffee, because the Starbucks Corporation considers itself not just as a coffee business, but as a coffee culture. In this way, you can be able to show to everyone that you have the capacity to have linkages with the Starbucks Corporation.
A deal with Starbucks is of course impossible without keeping a contact with them. One can be able to contact them through their website or through the company headquarters in Seattle, Washington. By maintaining communication with them, you can be able to arrange a possible deal with them.
Starbucks can provide training sessions to hone your coffee skills, and also to hone the skills of your staff. The said corporation can be kind enough to provide you with their products, supply the things they use in making their coffee, and help you set up your version of a Starbucks company store. We just have to be flexible enough to let Starbucks do their thing, and the results shall be very fine.
