One Thing Is Clear: Health Food Franchises Erupt in Recession
Many good things have come out of
recession, the biggest, I believe, with people getting better and pooling their
resources to improve their communities and small businesses and franchises.
While some franchises did experience a decline during the recession, others
have surged. The difference between “needs, needs,” junk “done
without (including food) and more attention and concentration on improving
one’s family’s health and togetherness.
With the lack of jobs in the
public and private sectors (in other words, “traditional” jobs),
people are more creative than selling goods on eBay and other similar outlets
to make ends meet. But what if this effort is ‘supported’ by a giant conglomerate?
Wouldn’t there be more support and a higher level of success because of the
parent company’s expertise to create a joint venture? This is where franchise
opportunities come but not every franchise is created equal.
How to Choose or Make a Successful Franchise in a Difficult Time
Just because you like food at
MacDonald’s doesn’t mean the franchise will succeed. More and more people cook
at home and leave the fast food entity behind. Well, outside once in a while
pizza is bought at a grocery store. People have re-evaluated their priorities
and, right above, are: saving money and becoming healthier. The meal became
“out” and people welcomed the crock pot and other cooking ‘machines’
back into the kitchen. The point here is that if you are considering getting a
franchise, you need to see what trends people want from what they want.
Do Your Franchise Homework AFTER Building What People Want
Run a search on Google for
“popular franchises.” In addition, run a search on what items people
buy. In addition, run a search based on current public interest. Quite a few
things that are suitable for “go green” are good. You can become a
franchise of a solar panel company and offer your products and services to
residents in your community. Health food and natural healing techniques are
also at the top of most people’s lists. “Healthy Eating” and recipes
are getting stronger. Likewise franchise companies that offer this rate.
Planting a home garden is another
feasible consideration. Even though there are many people who claim not to have
a green thumb, becoming a franchise from a local nursery offering such
assistance is very popular right now. Think a little outside the box. You don’t
know whether a local farmer, for example, will offer a franchise or commission
based on the sales you produce because your expertise in helping people stretch
with ‘edible food’.
Understand How Franchise Works
strength in numbers and even this is your first time building a franchise;
assistance is only e-mail or telephone away. Many companies “send
troops” to help you organize and find out the best way to operate a
franchise. After all, the ‘parent’ company has a “blueprint” of what
has worked and what hasn’t. To further assist you in understanding franchising,

For years the media has
misinformed us regarding the issue on weight loss. There are so many people on
diets, on missions to lose weight and they are only setting themselves up for
failure. My question to you is: if diets and exercise work, then why are most
people on a vicious cycle to always lose weight? By the way, exercise is only
20% of your weight loss while what and how much you eat is the other 80%. So
why are most people swept up in this culture of diets and exercise?
First let’s put everything into
perspective. Big tobacco controls most food chains and media conglomerates.
Their purpose is to convince the American people to consume more and more food
everyday. The more we eat, the more money they win. Its a sickening fight for
your money. The more ads they bombard at you, the more you will consume. Why?
It’s all about your subconscious. You might think that logic will win this
battle, but emotion is the underlying determiner of whether you buy that
fattening, juicy, steaming, cheesy piece of garbage that they call food. The
ads and commercials that you see convey messages that resonate with good feelings
or memories in your life. The most sickening example: what does a happy clown
have to do with a cheeseburger? Nothing! It’s a tactic that paid psychologist
came up to manipulate your mind and your children’s mind.
The truth will not be published in
the magazines, or TV shows, or any publications owned by big Tobacco. Why?
because they want you to be confused about weight loss, and fall into those
vicious cycles, so that at the end of the day you end up binging on all their
The key to losing weight is
eating a balanced diet which includes fats, carbs, proteins and everything
needed for the function of your body. Portion control is another factor in
weight loss. Most restaurants serve you portions enough for three people. Go
ahead and eat all the food on the plate. Your stomach will stretch, your body
will produce too much insulin and not know what to do with all that extra food
so it will store it as fat in your arteries, on your organs, on your stomach
and thighs. The more you eat, the bigger your stomach gets, and when you go
back to that restaurant, you will probably have more room for more food-
mission accomplished; another penny from your pocket.
It doesn’t have to be this way.
There are solutions to your illnesses, your anxiety and your addictions to food
for comfort. Why do you eat? Anxiety? Comfort? What if there was a natural
solution to your cravings and bad eating habits? What if you lost five pounds
in three days and maybe 20 in a month? I did and with an all natural solution. What
if you could control how much you eat and say no to food when you feel full?
It’s … Read More
I do not need to remind you that
lying is wrong. Telling a single lie to your friend is enough to destroy a very
healthy friendship. Even spicing up your job application with little lies can
easily lock you out of that good job opportunity you so much desire. In fact, a
good number of employers when hiring avoid employing a candidate who lied in
their application even if the said candidate is qualified.
The same also applies when it
comes to online business. Some people are known to exaggerate there business
programs especially when it comes to placing classified advertisements in name
of attracting more visits. It is true you will get visitors but your bounce
rate will be so high. This is because whenever a visitor gets to your business link
or website with high expectation and discovers he is being short changed then
he/she leaves the site immediately.
It is important to know that, in
order to make a sale online you need a visitor to take more that ten seconds on
your website or blog. The other aspect of telling the truth is that you will
only attract a target audience who will of course spend more time on you web
pages therefore chances of making a sale or acquiring a referral are higher.
Good marketing strategies call for
truthfulness on the part of the marketer. In time, people will notice you have
integrity and they will easily refer or recommend others to visit your online
business and I do not need to remind you that the best mode of advertising is
by word of mouth.… Read More
