Are you dreaming of starting your own business, but not sure where to start? Perhaps owning a franchise will fulfill your entrepreneurial desires. If you’re curious but still on the fence, here are five reasons to consider investing in a franchise, courtesy of Bedros Keuilian, CEO and founder of Fit Body Boot Camp:

  1. When you open a well-known franchise, you’ll see a profit a lot faster than you would if you went out on your own.
  2. Most of the initial setup will be done for you, because franchises usually maintain the same business plan and procedures throughout all their locations. Having proven systems in place will help you with your own success early on.
  3. The franchisor can walk you through the process of finding a location and offer you exclusive discounts on equipment, fitness insurance and other needs.
  4. With a successful brand name comes a loyal following. Most new members are more likely to choose a gym with a reputable, established business record than they are to join a facility they’ve never heard of.
  5. The franchisor will handle franchise material, leaving you to simply distribute the information to your staff. Not having to create your own manuals or tutorials will save you a ton of time and money with the initial setup.
