Defining Semi-Absentee Ownership: What It Is and Why It May be Right for You

Aug 18, 2021

You might be interested in semi-absentee owning a franchise. You can have both your career and grow a franchise company. Please find out more about semi-absentee ownership and what it represents below.

Defining Semi-Absentee Ownership

Semi-absentee ownership means owning a franchise without requiring you to commit to it full-time. This option is great for franchisees looking to make additional income while maintaining their current job. Also, they may want to build a business that will sustain them in retirement.

While you will be responsible for some aspects of the executive functions, semi-absentee owners of franchises won’t have to be present in your shop or store every day. Semi-absentee ownership allows you to have both a career and semi-retirement while still being able to visit the office whenever it is necessary. Your business will still thrive even if your vacation plans change or you turn off your phone for a while.

Managers You Can Rely On

You will need to hire, train and manage managers you can rely on to build a successful semi-absentee franchise business. You might be able to bring a general manager on board in the early stages of franchising and start franchise training with them. You can be sure they are knowledgeable and able to run your business following the requirements regulated by the franchisor.

The managers will hire other workers, provide quality customer services, and manage the day-to-day operations. Giving these tasks and responsibilities to other people will allow you to concentrate on your executive duties.

Trust is important, as well as open communication. Your direct involvement in the daily tasks and operations of the franchise company will be through your general manager or managers.

Your Duties

Semi-absentee owners can choose how much they will involve themselves in the business. They often choose to manage the finances of their business, plan the development and growth, and be in touch with the franchisor.

You might be assigned different responsibilities depending on who you choose to manage your business or what your passions are. You can choose to become a semi-absentee franchisee if you are passionate about training people, experienced in accounting, or know some marketing and public relations.

Delegate Tasks

Semi-absentee ownership of a franchising business has many benefits. One is giving tasks for other people to take care of instead of yourself, known as delegation. Even if you have an established franchising system, running a business requires that you manage many tasks. You can delegate tasks to a manager if you don’t want to spend your time managing staff schedules and other administrative duties.

Talk to your franchisor when you have doubts or questions about the easily delegated tasks and the ones you should manage yourself. They will let you in on some tips and good practices in the franchising system so far.

Is Semi-Absentee Ownership right for you?

Does semi-absentee ownership sound like something up your alley? You can involve yourself in the business’s operations in the way you want. So, consider the semi-absentee ownership opportunities when thinking about going into franchising.
