Why invest in a Drug Testing Franchise Alternative?
There’s nothing proprietary about drug testing so there is nothing a Franchisor is selling you that they actually own other than the name on the sign.
No restricted territories. Do business and marketing anywhere.
No lengthy franchise agreement where you put a lien on your home or assets as a guarantor to the Franchisor.
No ongoing royalties and advertising fees. At the end of the month you don’t have to write a large check and ask “What support and services did I get this month to justify all this money?”
Vendors introductions for all equipment and testing supplies needed to outfit your business. There’s minimal equipment and supplies needed for a drug testing business but everything you need will be covered and existing vendor relationships of Rapid Test Center will be provided.
Ongoing 24/7 phone support after the initial training is complete for up to one year - After the initial training the ongoing support needed is mostly a few phone calls a week for the first few months and it tapers off after that to one call a month after 6 months as you gain experience in the different scenarios you will run into in this business you will not need further support. In a Franchise system you still continue to pay that 10%-15% a month even though you are fully functioning on your own.
