It sounds too good to be true you’re probably thinking. How is it possible to work with IT and especially data recovery without any prior experience! True, it does sound as a sales cliché. However, this is where franchising comes into play – and makes it true.
Most people would probably not even contemplate getting into the data recovery business on their own without proper IT education and know-how. Using a franchise as a stepping-stone into a new trade and becoming a business owner makes this very possible. The trick is to divide the workload. Simply put, by leaving the technical stuff to the technicians, i.e. the franchisor and having you taking care of sales and customer service, then data recovery is doable for most hopeful new business owners.
The right concept
First-time business owners often find franchising a bit daunting as Franchisors often have long lists of requirements before you can start your business. Then they throw a thick Franchise Operations Manual, full of rules and procedures, on your table and tell you to follow it to the letter. You’re now probably wondering where the joy of entrepreneurship went. What happened to being your own boss? The challenge is to find the right franchise concept, which suits your ambitions, interests and lifestyle. There is a huge difference between the thousands of franchise concepts which are available out there. Ranging from systems where you more or less just have to turn up in the morning to get the show on the road, to franchise concepts which leave it to the franchisee’s to take the rudder.
The right toolbox

Furthermore, for our franchise concept to be successful, it’s vital that the franchisee add their personal touch to the business – with or without previous IT experience.
