The Importance of a Professionally Written Operations Manual

Successful franchise systems thrive on consistency.  If your franchisees don’t know the rules, you can’t consistently enforce your brand’s standards.  Without a complete, well-written Operations Manual you’ll end up with different standards for different locations, which will frustrate your good franchisees.

Public perception of uniform quality is essential to all franchise systems.  It is what makes franchising work so well.  Courts have held that uniform quality assurance is the duty of the franchisor.  You risk losing your trademarks if you don’t have written quality standards you can enforce consistently.

Great Operations Manuals are also great franchise sales tools.  The Table of Contents is in the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), and most potential franchisees will want to view the manual before they buy your franchise.  You will sell more franchises with a complete, well-written Operations Manual.

Your Operations Manual will also be your training manual.  All successful franchise systems have a world-class Operations Manual they use for training new franchisees.
