La Diperie Franchise Can Be Perfect For Your Franchise Portfolio
What is a Franchise Portfolio?
Owning a business can be the adventure of a lifetime, and in the franchise world, the possibilities are so endless that you can write your own story as you go. Some franchisees prefer to focus on operating one unit, others open multiple units of the same business, some even expand their business portfolio across multiple industries. At La Diperie, we want you to reach your highest potential in business, and we encourage all our franchisees to consider multi-unit franchising. We believe approaching your portfolio from a standpoint of growth and expansion will not only allow you to reach greater heights, but can possibly give you greater financial security during downtimes. We’ve designed our franchise model to allow for as much multi-unit growth as you could ever want.
Why Diversify Your Franchise Portfolio?
The pandemic taught us how practically overnight the economic terrain can change completely. The businesses that stayed afloat through the worst of it were either able to adapt their operations to fit the new landscape, or had multiple revenue streams to pull from until conditions improved. As a business owner, living through the pandemic underscored how important it is to diversify your portfolio and give yourself multiple sources of income, should circumstances strain your income down the road. Even if one unit is simply underperforming, having a multi-unit portfolio can help cut your losses until they’re running back up to speed. In the end, if you’re an entrepreneur, you value financial independence, and you can’t be independent without being financially secure.
So what should you consider when diversifying your portfolio? You’re looking for a synergy between your different units. Finding that synergy is a skill you can continue to cultivate over your career, but in its essence it comes down to a couple simple ideas. You want to collect brands that work well together, that don’t compete or clash with each other. For example, you don’t want to run two different sandwich franchises that compete in the same market. On the other hand, if you’re already running a sandwich shop, you could open a La Diperie right next door, and the customer base would likely go from one to the next, compounding your business, and diversifying your revenue stream. Another option is to build a portfolio across multiple industries. Many multi-unit franchise owners will opt to have some restaurant units, some repair and restoration businesses, some electronics, etc. This can help keep income steady across different seasons, as consumers’ priorities can shift throughout the year. However you go about it, there’s clear benefits to diversifying your portfolio.
