Franchise In a nutshell
Basically Franchising for Touring Cars means that we ( Franchisor ) have developed a successful business model that we can offer you to take part of. In a nutshell, Franchising occurs when the franchisor is renting out or leasing the rights to its brand and its operating methods to one or more independent franchisees; this would be you. The concept franchisor has developed is to be used throughout the entire franchise chain ensuring consistency and economies of scale.
Its all about concept
A franchise system consists of a franchisor and a number of franchisees. They work together toward common goals but are legally independent. This means that you as a franchisee are responsible for the daily operations of your business and your own results. The franchisor takes care of things like operational support, training, HRM support, consultancy, quality control, marketing strategies, etc.
Does a franchise suit me?
Franchise is often better option to start a new business than building it from the ground. While it can be a perfect option for many people it may not suit for everyone.

Your´re not alone – in many ways
Franchise system is a two-way street,our part is to support you as our franchisee but If one thinks one is an independent businessman by being a franchisee, one is not. Franchisees are part of a system, and one have to accept that to be successful –to even consider being part of a franchise chain. In a nutshell: If you’re someone who thinks outside the box, wants to reinvent the wheel, and disturb the current marketplace, franchising is probably not right way forward. In addition if one is very independent and not necessarily happy to take direction that well the set up is not ideal for the franchise model. As a franchisee one need to conform to franchisors requirements.
However if you want something that comes with name recognition built in, reservations, computer support, global benefits for your local business and a community of like-minded entrepreneurs, then franchise is the way forward.

“We joined Touring Cars three years ago. Already during the first year, business proved itself: we exceeded our budget and expectations. The help received from Touring Cars’ support, from daily matters to business consulting, has been priceless for us.
We have opened three new stations and our feet has more than doubled within two years, with now over 100 units.
I would love to see new colleagues to share this success.”
Tom Henrik Johnsen -Touring Cars Norway
“It’s easy to work with a tested rental concept. There is someone developing the product and we can concentrate on the business itself. A few years ago, we didn’t know much about the motorhome rental business, and today we have the biggest rental fleet in Iceland. Who would ́ve imagined that? Without the excellent support from Touring Cars, the business would look very different ”
Guðmundur Freyr Valgeirsson -Touring Cars Iceland
"The first season was challenging for us, and we could have sold more rentals on our first year. However, we were really excited to see that the sales sky-rocketed on our second year, being several times more than what we did on our first year. Support from Touring Cars’ sales and marketing team has been really valuable. The local market in Estonia is tiny, so it would have been impossible to find the rental clients for our fleet locally. We are also really happy to see that the expenditure is higher among the foreign rental clients”
Uno Targama -Touring Cars Estonia
