How to Open Your Own Microtel by Wyndham Franchise

To be part of the Microtel by Wyndham team, you should make sure you are financially ready for an initial investment, which will include a franchise fee and other potential startup fees. You will need enough capital available to cover royalty percentages and advertising fees. The initial franchise fee grants you the license to run a business using the Microtel by Wyndham brand name and logo. The term of agreement for a Microtel by Wyndham franchisee is typically 20 years, at which point both you and the franchisor will determine if you wish to renew and continue operating the territory. 

As you make your decision regarding whether to open a Microtel by Wyndham franchise, make sure you take time to explore the opportunity. Research the brand and your local area to see if a franchise would do well in your community. While competition is healthy, too much of it may not allow for the most possible growth. 

You'll need to wait until you receive a notification from Microtel by Wyndham that an opportunity to open a new location is available in the territory you want. When opportunity knocks, you may find you can give it a place to stay.
