Franchising isn't necessarily a great fit for everyone. It really comes down to how the individual wants to run their operation.
Do you find there are certain types of personality types or situations that tend to work best with the franchising model?

For instance, do newer entrepreneurs work best with it or others who have been around for a while and understand the value of a support system?

With our franchise and our specific business - yes.

I mean - we have franchisees from a full range of backgrounds and personality types who have built very successful businesses with our franchise model, but the ones who really excel - our top performers - tend to be Type A individuals who love marketing.

DoodyCalls is an entry-level business. Success with our franchise doesn't hinge on whether or not someone has extensive business or entrepreneurial experience. It's more about ambition. Our most successful franchise owners didn't join DoodyCalls to scoop poop. They joined because there's remarkable potential in this category and our franchise is leading the way. They wanted to be a part of the success story - and they are.

According to a recent survey by the American Pet Products Association (reported by The Wall Street Journal) the market potential for pet waste removal is estimated to be $2.6 billion annually, the vast majority of which is untapped.

It seems to me that in general, people who do well at business are those that love to interact with others and are extroverts.

A lot of times though, even extroverted people have problems coming up with a business idea and then focusing on it. That seems to be where the franchise concept can really help.

An entrepreneur can spend his/her entire career looking for a business model that works and never hit on anything, or possibly skim across the surface of an idea but never dive into it to really exploit it's potential.

A small business owner can have a hell of a time trying to see the bigger picture when they are stuck in a box that they have created because they don't have the time to do anything else but today's tasks. When that happens, you can't rise above and work on your business, versus working in your business.

I'd love to see one of our forum members get into your franchise and talk about all they experience and learn from the process.
