Woops!, a Modern Franchise on the Rise
How innovation and creativity keep Woops! ahead of the curve
It’s easy to feel intimidated when you’re looking to start a business. As the head of your own company, you have to keep up with customer expectations, manage employees, keep them engaged in an efficient workflow—and that’s just a few of the many challenges. Choosing a franchise as opposed to starting your own company from scratch can free up some of your time by coming with the benefit of an already-existing blueprint for how a successful business operates. At Woops!, we know that the ever-evolving market is the moving target and that staying on top of trends is the ultimate key to success. You need to be on the cutting edge of many fields with the ability to bring them all together in real-time.
Woops! The hottest franchise business in America
Why Woops! has the other franchises beat
Franchises exist in almost any industry you can think of, so how do you decide which one is best for you when the options seem limitless? While our name could mislead you, Woops!’ many accomplishments and advantages are no accident. Our management has vast experience in the franchise and small business space. Woops! was recently named of Entrepreneur’s “2019 Top New Franchises” and is currently projected to reach 100 units sold within two years, which is an unusually high number. As if that wasn’t enough, here are some of the other reasons why our franchise business is one of the most attractive out there.
Is franchising for you?
Thinking of opening up a franchise? See if you have what it takes
It can be empowering to open your own business, and a franchise means you can be your own boss and a leader to others, all with the support of a big business network behind you. It’s a great way to take control of your career while relying on the security of a business model that’s already been proven and replicated. Still, that doesn’t mean that a franchise will automatically be a success. You’ll want to increase your chances of making it work at every corner. Different business leaders have different styles (heck, even different businesses!) but there are some important characteristics all good leaders share. So while you think about this opportunity, you may want to ask yourself:
Are you organized? It’s important to be creative when problem-solving, but an effective franchisee is also someone who is great at following a system to the T to execute a strong roll-out. The most successful franchise owners are those who can follow the system, rather than trying to come in and make broad changes.
Do you get along with people? You’ll be building relationships at every level, every day. From the customers to your employees, and from your fellow franchisees to the bigger brand, it’s important to have a great sense of what others expect from you and what you expect from them.
One of the best investments you can make in 2019
How investing in a franchise can be an investment in yourself
As 2019 gets going, you might be considering how to take more control of your finances and make your investments work better for you, perhaps by opening your own business. One route to do so is investing in a franchise—a business model in which a local outpost is backed up by the know-how, systems, and procedures of a larger company. This opens up the question: Do franchises make good investments? Simply put: yes.
A franchise provides many of the benefits of small business ownership, such as independence, but with the invaluable support of a larger, established company. Franchisees are able to rely on a pre-set business blueprint, which makes setting up shop much easier.
Woops! Macaron Franchise
Energetic and growing gifting and events company operates high-end bakeshop and boutique kiosk franchises across the United States
Woops! Is a fun, energetic macaron franchise to own and operate, a feeling that goes back to its very founding: In 2012, four friends rented space in a holiday market to enjoy the season and offer their homemade macarons to the community. In nine weeks they had sold $250,000 worth of macarons. “Someone said, ‘Woops, we have a business,’ and the company had an official name,” says Raj Bhatt, Chief Financial Officer and co-founder. “We have grown ever since by the demand from customers and from entrepreneurs who want to become part of this rapidly growing opportunity.”
Woops! franchise owners have captured the U.S. demand for macarons and other international desserts by creating beautiful, inviting spaces that engage consumers’ senses while also offering a unique purchasing and gift-giving experience. And they’ve done so in a energizing, authentic way that’s as “Instragrammable” for sharing online as it is during in-person visits.
