Whether you’re looking for growth potential, want a proven business model, or are worried about the initial cost of investment, owning a franchise business is better with Murphy.

5 Reasons Why Owning a Franchise Business Is Better with Murphy

  1. Massive Potential. The business brokerage industry is a largely untapped market with massive growth potential. At any given moment, there are more than 5 million businesses for sale in the U.S. Yet it’s estimated that there are fewer than 4,000 professional business brokers in the nation. This represents a significantly underserved market with tons of room for growth.
  2. Brand Recognition. Owning a franchise business is substantially easier when you are part of a recognized and trusted franchise brand. That is precisely what you will get with Murphy Business. Our business brokers are widely recognized for their expertise, their commitment to client satisfaction, and the ROI they bring to business transfers. What’s more, we operate a successful multi-faceted lead generation program, a program that directly benefits our franchisees.
  3. Proven Business Model. At Murphy Business, we have more than two decades of experience in the business transfer industry. Over that time, we’ve developed a tried-and-tested, turnkey business model, taking the guesswork out of starting your own business brokerage firm. Our model is reinforced by the extensive training and support that we provide to our franchisees, including 45 hours of online training, 4-5 days of classroom training, and ongoing franchisee support.
  4. Flexible Scheduling. One of the most common drawbacks of owning a franchise business is the pressure it puts on your schedule. Many franchise owners find themselves working 50, 60, or even 70 hours per week, particularly in the early stages of their business. What’s more, it is common for franchisees to work outside of regular business hours. Owning a franchise business in the business transfer industry comes with no such problems. The vast majority of our work is done during regular business hours, and brokers rarely need to work evenings or weekends.
  5. Low Initial Investment. Even if you’re ready to own and operate your own business, the cost of owning a franchise business may be an obstacle to your dreams. Many franchise opportunities require an initial investment in the high-six or low-seven figure range, which makes owning a franchise business beyond the reach of most people. With Murphy Business, the initial investment for owning a franchise business is between $62,250 and $123,735, depending on the type of franchise you open. That’s less than a tenth of the cost of many other franchise opportunities.
