Thinking of exiting or selling your franchise? We can help.

537002891

No matter how much a franchisee enjoys being part of a network, the day will come when such franchise wants to leave. Or you may decide as a franchisee to retire or simply cash in your investment. We have information and advice on how to exit or sell your franchise business.

  • Let’s help you plan accordingly

    Before you think of exiting the franchise, consider the needs of the:
    • Franchisor - The franchisor will have a standard franchise agreement in place and will typically be reluctant to amend it.
    • Franchisee - The franchisee needs to map out desired future developments. Does he/she want to appoint a manager, hand control of the business over to one of his/her children or sell the business outright and make a capital profit?
    • Buyer of the business - The buyer of the business expects the business to perform as contemplated.
    Exit formats - An individual can exit the business in stages or in one single transaction.

    Exit in stages
    A family member or a deserving member of staff is groomed as successor. He/she is given an opportunity to acquire shares over a predetermined period until full transfer of ownership is accomplished. This format is attractive because continuity is practically assured. It is particularly suited to the transfer of ownership to heirs. It can also be used in BEE transactions, often in combination with tandem franchising.

    Outright sale
    Should an outright sale be contemplated, the seller will expect the franchisor to act fairly, be supportive and facilitate the transaction in line with conditions agreed in advance.

    Transfer process

    Some franchisors reserve the right to handle the process of selling the business. They charge a market-related commission in return. Others reserve the right to approve the buyer and charge a fixed fee for undertaking the approval process and providing training to the buyer of the franchisee.
