If you are preparing your plan for a franchise startup, pay close attention to the manuals, materials and operating procedures provided to you by the franchisor. Read everything carefully before you begin to write your plan. This information is the starting point of your plan and much of it may be able to be incorporated directly into your plan. Take advantage of the experience of those who have traveled this path before you. And be careful that your plan is not so far removed from the franchisor’s operations that your franchise becomes incompatible with the chain from which it came. Franchisors have strict guidelines they expect each franchisee to follow. We all know what happens to the nail that sticks out above the rest.
