Why You May Want to Start a Tailored Living Franchise

Tailored Living is a well-known business with proud franchisees. Franchisees help people in their community live a more organized life through innovative storage methods and other organizational solutions. As a franchisee, you'll be your own boss, with the opportunity to build a business. You can create your business to your preferred size either as a partnership, sole proprietorship, or family business with one or multiple territories. You are also given the opportunity to participate in absentee ownership.

Franchisees experience paid training at Tailored Living headquarters in Irvine, California and lifetime support in every area of their business. Tailored Living also arranges one year of business coaching by outside vendors, annual conventions, webinars, and helplines to offer support to new franchisees. 

What Might Make a Tailored Living Franchise a Good Choice?

Tailored Living has ranked in Entrepreneur's Franchise 500 multiple times in the past few years. This ranking is based on an evaluation of more than 150 data points in the areas of costs and fees, size and growth, franchisee support, brand strength, and financial strength and stability.

Franchisees should prepare for financial investment. Franchisees will need to pay a franchise fee and brand royalties. Franchisees will also need to hit the minimum set net worth and cash requirement for franchising with Tailored Living. 

As you make your decision concerning whether to open a franchise with Tailored Living, 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.

How Do You Open a Tailored Living Franchise?

The franchising process will take time to complete. Be prepared for interviews with upper management, at which point you will review the Franchise Disclosure Document. After a successful interview, you may be invited to a discovery day to explore the opportunity further. You will also have time to speak with other franchisees to get their side of the franchise experience with Tailored Living. 

Before you can open your Tailored Living franchise, you must attend a training at the home office in Irvine, California to learn how to operate your business. Tailored Living staff will be involved as you train and prepare to open your franchise.
