The Ideal Franchisee
Have you always thought about owning and operating a business of your own? Are you an educator who wants to put that valuable training to use as the owner of a franchise? Do you have experience in the child care industry and yearn to make a larger impact in the education and lives of children? Do you enjoy the company of children and have a knack for connecting with them? OTA franchise prospects may include an energetic individual or a team seeking to combine their experiences and talents. There are a number of people who could be ideal franchisees. We are looking for enthusiastic, motivated individuals looking to become part of a much desired and consistently growing industry – providing much needed after school and summer camp programs in a structured environment where children can learn, imagine and enjoy.
Our ideal OTA franchisee is someone who:
Enjoys working with children
May have been or is a teacher, coach, or youth professional
Is available full-time or part-time
May have a degree in either education or other course of study
Has good time management skills
May have business or entrepreneurial experience
Is devoted to a service-oriented profession
How it works
One question potential franchisees sometimes ask is, “Why should I buy a franchise? Why can’t I just go out and start my own business?” Certainly, some people do enter the business world in that manner. So, what is the real value of purchasing a franchise rather than “going it alone”?
On your own, you might well experience a large “learning curve.” What are the right types of publications to advertise in, or websites or other forms of marketing? What types of promotions provide the best return? Are there collateral materials, like pamphlets, that I should consider? Without the professional training, business experience, or connections it takes to succeed, it is difficult to get off the ground. Many small business owners begin by hiring outside individuals with experience just for advice. Let’s face it. Opening your own business independently takes time and money.
That isn’t to say that franchising doesn’t require time and money, also. However, as a franchisee, you enjoy a number of advantages that a stand-alone, independent start-up does not. You begin with the accumulated experience, know-how, business practices and operating plan that come with a franchise.
As a franchisee, you enjoy name-brand recognition and a network of support provides an immediate and distinct competitive edge over the independent, stand-alone business. You can avoid that costly trial-and-error period that causes so many problems for start-up businesses. As a franchisee, you’ll “hit the ground running.”
The Overtime Athletics opportunity gives you the ready-made framework within which to build a successful business.
