When Transworld franchise owners need calculate the value of the businesses they represent, they rely on a number of tips and tricks that have been developed by our experts over years of experience. Here’s a quick look at how our franchisees determine the value of a company.
Appraise Any Company Assets
No matter the type of business, it’s important to appraise any assets that may be available to potential buyers. For example, if a restaurant is for sale, take into consideration what the buyer will receive when they purchase the business. Restaurant equipment? Furniture and decor? It’s important to accurately appraise the value of any assets that are for sale within the business. When you become a Transworld franchise owner, our strong training programme can help to prepare you to assess factors like these, among many others.
It’s important for Transworld business brokers to have a good handle on the profitability of the businesses they represent. Assessing earnings statements is a great way to assess how much money a business is bringing in and spending on supplies and labor. The overall profitability of a restaurant is another important factor when it comes to assessing the value of a business. As a Transworld franchise owner, you’ll learn the skills you’ll need to interpret these numbers and to help match businesses with the perfect buyers.
Consider a Fair Market Value
Once you’ve determined the assets and profitability, consider the market value of the business before deciding on a price. Keep in mind that many buyers want to negotiate downward, so setting a price at the higher end of the spectrum is well within the norm. Transworld franchise owners understand how best to arrive at this fair market value, including finding the best multiple to use and looking at prices of comparable businesses.
These are just a few considerations our franchisees take into account when making decisions about pricing a business.
