The Rise of the Absentee Investor Model Franchise



Investing in a franchise can be a lucrative business venture.


But what if you don’t have time to dedicate full-time to running a business?


That’s where the absentee investor model franchise comes in. This type of franchise opportunity allows investors to pay a franchisor a percentage of their revenue without having to manage the day-to-day operations. Here’s what you need to know about why this model is becoming increasingly popular and how it could benefit your business.


What Is an Absentee Investor Model Franchise?

An absentee investor model franchise is an arrangement in which an investor pays a franchisor a percentage of their gross revenue (usually 5%), in exchange for the franchisor managing the daily operations of running the franchise. The franchisor acts as a manager and handles all aspects of running the business, including hiring and training employees, securing customers, dealing with suppliers, and marketing and advertising. In exchange for these services, they take a percentage of the revenue made by the franchisee.


According to the Spray Foam Genie Item 19 this still left a healthy Net Profit to the Owner/Operator of $541,260.08 on a two truck market.



Why Is It Becoming Popular?

The absentee investor model has become increasingly popular for several reasons. Firstly, it gives investors more control over their investments as they can choose which franchises they want to invest in without having to commit too much time or money upfront. Secondly, it allows investors to take advantage of franchising without having to actually run a business themselves; instead, they can rely on experienced professionals who are already familiar with all aspects of running that particular business. Finally, since each investor will only be paying 5% of gross revenue to have their franchise run for them (on top of a standard royalty and other associated fees), this makes it much easier for them to recoup their original investment more quickly than with other types of investments. This is great for investors who want to keep full time jobs or already run other businesses.
