7. S.W.O.T. Analysis


A new franchise, with huge room to grow with more members.  No new franchises in Pretoria East Available.  Training of staff at R20,000 completed.  New Franchise establishment fee paid of R300,000, you save R200,000 at least.  Equipment of R390,000 included.  So a value of R690,000 if you started a new franchise like this, which you cannot get in the area.  All this for R190,000.  You save R500,000 and that excludes 12 months of marketing cost and the 130 contracts already in place.


Owner needed.  Six months away from been a good earning franchise, why you get the discount.


Grow the business by increasing the client base is all you have to do.  Stay on track with the growth


None perceived.
