If you’re thinking of owning a home generator franchise, here are the dos and don'ts to keep in mind:

Do: Your Homework

The decision to venture into the franchise industry is crucial in determining the fate of your future business-oriented goals, as it is usually low risk compared to starting from the bottom up.

Do: Know The Requirements

Franchises have different requirements, so it is essential to familiarize yourself with them and determine whether you're investing in the right business. Starting your home generator business requires capital, and knowing all the costs is key to understanding what's expected of you. 

As a potential Generator Supercenter partner, you will also need to have team building and leadership experience, time management and managerial skills, a passion for customer service, financial acumen, and the willingness to commit to the Generator Supercenter system.
