WERTHMANN® Franchise - The Successful Concept

What Does That Mean for Me?

  • You are an independent entrepreneur.
  • You invest your capital in your own system operation.
  • As an entrepreneur you are going to establish and lead this system operation independently and self responsibly. In the process, we actively support you.
  • You apply our business concept in your system operation.
  • In applying the business concept in your system operation, you cannot always decide freely, even if you are an entrepreneur. This is inevitable as our community can only accomplish a unified brand image through the consistent application of the business concept.
  • You are not alone. We are by your side!

Each operation is associated with risk. Like every entrepreneur, you carry this entrepreneurial risk. That is why we inform you extensively. We put enhanced emphasis not only on you recognising the opportunities, but also on you assessing the risk realistically. You are highly welcome to look at a sample contract, detailed information and especially the figures of already existing system operations with us personally in a training classroom in Schonungen. Did we arouse your interest? Then arrange a meeting now!

What You Should Know about Franchising!

In franchising, a company with a successful business concept provides the opportunity for independent operators to use this business concept in their own companies. In other words: Franchising is the licence for a business concept. The operators (referred to as „franchisees“) have the opportunity to use the success of such a business concept. At the same time and like any self-employed person, they carry the entrepreneurial risk. However, they receive continuous support from headquarters (referred to as “franchisor”). A strong community develops in this way, a network, a franchise system, which is seen as a consistent chain on the market.

Franchising has emerged by the end of the 19th century in the USA. By now it is popular all over the world. Franchising is the basis of many brands which are seen as branch systems by customers. The image in our pedestrian zones is shaped by franchise systems. Furthermore, company start-ups benefit from franchising, which is the reason why it is seen as a chance for our economy by politics.
