Women Love the Franchise Model, and Church’s Texas Chicken® Is One of the Best Franchises for Women to Own!
The world owes a lot to the contributions made by women, and the franchise sphere is no exception. Women make great franchisees for lots of reasons, and it's no coincidence that one of the best franchises for women to own is a Church’s Texas Chicken® franchise. We love that many women have already gravitated to our quick-service restaurant (QSR) brand to start serving our delicious menu items to their communities, and our comprehensive training and support keep them, and indeed all our franchisees, on the path toward growth and long-term success.
Keep reading to find out why women love the Church’s Texas Chicken® business model and how it allows them to tap into their strengths and skill sets.
Women Are Great Small Business Owners
Small business ownership appeals to a great many people, and for good reasons. It can help you enjoy more control over your time, can put you in a position of leadership, and can allow you to engage with your community in ways you may not otherwise have been able to.
Women, in particular, very often make great small business owners. Consider these facts…
- Women-owned businesses (1) employ nearly 9.4 million people
- Every day, 1,817 new women-owned businesses start up
- Women own 42% of all companies in the US
Typical franchises for women can be found in the health and beauty industries, as well as in retail and services. But the QSR sphere can be especially appealing to women entrepreneurs, and our franchise opportunities for women let them tap into their strengths. Let’s dive into a few of them.
Women Are Good Multitaskers
By nature, women tend to be able to juggle multiple tasks at a time; they know how to prioritize their efforts and how to keep things on track, on schedule, and on budget. These are strong skills to have, no matter what industry you’re in or how you choose to do business. But they are especially ideal for franchisees in the QSR sphere.
Ours is an industry that has many moving parts (and our proven business model will help you navigate them more efficiently and seamlessly). As a Church’s Texas Chicken® franchise owner, it’s wise to become familiar with as many aspects of the business as possible so you’ll be prepared to meet any challenges or demands that come your way. Women franchisees can tap into their innate multitasking abilities to help them become knowledgeable in areas like supply chain management, hiring, goal setting, finances, and more.
Women Can Pivot Easily
Because women often have a lot going on in their personal and professional lives, they’ve often learned to think on their feet and pivot when necessary. They’re comfortable with improvising and understand there is more than one way to get the job done right. This out-of-the-box thinking lets them meet challenges head-on without the fear of setbacks — an invaluable mindset when you own a Church’s Texas Chicken® franchise.
Women Are Good Relationship Builders
Women tend to be comfortable around others and have strong communication and networking skills as a result. The ability to relate well, to connect and identify with the goals or needs of others, and to be sensitive to the customer experience is what being a good businessperson is all about. It's also important to have strong people skills and a friendly and likable attitude not just to build customer loyalty but also to develop relationships with team members, vendors, and staff.
Women Have a Can-Do Attitude
Often, women, particularly minority women, must overcome obstacles or hurdles to become small business owners. But their tenacity pays off! Did you know that 50% of all women-owned businesses are minority-owned (2)? Women’s belief in their abilities can come in especially handy in the QSR sphere, one that’s fast-paced and dynamic. It can require perseverance and a big-picture mentality, an approach that many women in business take. Women aren’t afraid to put in the hard work that’s required to build a successful business, in part because many of them have had to overcome obstacles to get to where they are. This can-do attitude goes a very long way toward establishing and growing a small business in any industry, but especially in the QSR world.
