Championii is the largest network of football clubs most successful franchise of the country in this field. It brings together more than 500 sites in more than 80 cities of Russia, Kyrgyzstan, Kazakhstan, Belarus and Ukraine.
Co-owner of the project and its CEO Ruslan Bashirov in an interview with the founder Evgeny Kudryavtsev discusses the business of franchises by the example of their own offspring.
We are often asked how did the idea of "CHempionata" and what was the experience in the business informed. Tell me, as the founder.
I have several years working in investment companies, now the Director of Fund "Elbrus Capital". We acquired various companies, invest in them and develop.
As the beginning of "CHempionata"? I finished in 2012, the MBA program at Harvard business school, and met one of the founders of "Soccer Shots". It is the largest U.S. franchise for teaching children football, where every year about 120 thousand people. I liked this idea because I myself have played football since 7 years and now continue to play.
By the time we arrived in Moscow, we with the spouse already was an eight month old twins - a boy and a girl. I wanted to run something connected with children's football, as in Moscow was nothing like this, and I opened the school Futbostars.
How did you know that for this service there is a demand? After all, soccer for the kids – a pretty bold idea.
At first, nothing was clear. I personally selected coaches, studied the program of "Soccer Shots". On its basis we have developed our own, focusing on the quality of the lessons. Became involved in a lot of guys. When groups became large, and the business began to make significant income - we understand that it is what exactly need to parents and children.
Now, many will think: "But in the US, soccer is not the most advanced sport that was there to take?". What is the difference between a model of children's football clubs in the United States, and we?
We took a set of exercises and key business values. For example, that the brand is very important and you need to take care of his recognition. So the people knew him due to the good quality, great inventory, clearance.
Indeed, there football is not the No. 1 sport, unlike Russia. So the classes have significantly better due to the quality of coaches and methods. They have a slightly different business model franchise, they have now started to integrate franchisees. Why do they do it? Might want to increase their interest and input threshold.
And now, some time later, as you think, what is a good franchise and a good management company?
Most projects that start from scratch with a new idea – bankrupt. The role of the management company, to close some of the risks, in particular, conduct business training franchisees. To help them become successful, build a brand and to centralize those processes that entrepreneurs on the ground efficiently can not handle.
For example, franchisees Chempionki visible inventory, invest in marketing, PR and brand promotion. Important and administrative function: UK sees what the problem was from some franchisees and helps to avoid them to others.
Tell me how an experienced investor, as small and medium entrepreneurs to find an investor in the project? Especially when you already have a working product. What will see the investors?
Surprisingly, it is sometimes easier to find an investor in the project when we have nothing. Because at the level of ideas, which is not yet tested, may be more enthusiasts to believe in something, in something to invest.
But if you already started, you already have some experience and the result of your efforts, the quality for the investor is paramount. How quickly you are growing, what the scope and prospects. In small groups one of the key roles played by the quality team.
I, as an investor, it is important to understand that for people who claim my money which they have had previous experience and who work with them.
And what qualities are necessary to the businessman in our area for a successful start? You should pay attention to the deductible work?
When we started out, for me personally it was important to believe in the idea. Around the new ideas there are always people who say, "No, it doesn't work", "it won't happen", but this firm belief in what you're doing and that's right, inner resilience is what allows you to achieve success.
I would call patience. For example, there are boxers who hit a single point on the pear to practice. In business such a thing is also important – the ability to continue to beat, no matter what, patience, perseverance, diligence. Coupled with faith in the right idea, these bangs at one point lead to results.
I remember sitting in a village near Ryazan, ring up 70 points where it was possible to conduct classes. As a result, we now have great company with the right idea and it all starts with these little things. So my advice to those starting: guys, believe in what you are doing, continue to beat at one point, like a boxer.

Catherine Malandi, head of the Department of development and sales for small business
Franchising is an effective tool to increase the share of small business in Russia. The potential capacity of the Russian franchising market is estimated at 400 thousand and 4 million employees. To implement these tasks need a set of measures, including the promotion of franchising and the creation of special banking products. I'm sure that joining URALSIB Bank member of the RAF will serve as an additional motivating factor for the implementation of plans to develop the Russian franchise.
Agnessa Osipova, President Of The Russian Association Of Franchising
In 2017, JSC "BANK URALSIB" actively developing its "Bank for entrepreneurs". In this strategy, URALSIB has launched an educational project for free training of entrepreneurs "business University", a service for the registration of an LLC or SP, and "Business place" – shop for effective business solutions. The partnership with the Russian Association of Franchising has become another step in development of this direction.
Israeli coffee chain Cofix will open a few spots on four stations of the Moscow Central ring. They will launch a franchisee of the company Dmitry Okulich, who won through e-auction the right to rent four rooms at stations MCK.
Coffee shop open at stations "Top Boilers", "novokhokhlovskaya", "Izmailovo" and "Streshnevo".
The economic crisis and stagnation in recent years has led to a sharp increase in demand for franchise Siberian companies. According to the Russian franchise Association (RAF), Siberian franchisors are some of the most successful in the country. For some of them selling franchises — an additional business development tool, for others — the main source of income. And those and others focused on the continued growth of franchise business in the market of Russia and CIS.
"The franchise market in Siberia was very dynamic, especially in cities such as Novosibirsk, Irkutsk, Norilsk, Krasnoyarsk, Omsk and Tomsk,— says the President of the RAF Agnessa Osipova.— Companies from Siberia occupy five positions in the Forbes ranking of "the 25 most profitable franchises in Russia", which in comparison with last year, the largest increase points". It's Novosibirsk-based company is a delivery service SDEK, a network of service stations, "Camry", a network of coffee houses Traveler's Coffee, electronic 2GIS directory and manufacture of heavy-duty coatings with mirror-like Shine Unibrait. An impressive result, given that Siberia is home to only 24% of the population, according to MS Osipova, "brings the region into the leaders of the Russian franchise".
Two of the five franchises rating — "Camry," and Unibrait — production company. "This is very important because, according to the RAF, among the companies developing for franchising to categories of production include not more than 4% of the total. Manufacturing is a complex business that requires innovative development, introduction of modern technologies, good knowledge of market conditions and market capacity," says Agnessa Osipova.
In the RAF I believe that the economic instability played in favor of franchising. Successful cooperation with strong brands has become one of the entrepreneurs effective business development tool, but for others — the basis for his full conversion to the development of franchising. Reduction of risks at the start, lengthening the life cycle of the business, synergy creative and business potential partners franchise network provides a powerful growth of the middle class, says Agnessa Osipova. "A positive result of some employers motivate others, a chain reaction begins. The more franchise offers concentrations in one region, the more people want to try their hand in business of this format. Best advertising franchise is the rate of achieving breakeven point and positive feedback from franchisees, which are a powerful argument for other entrepreneurs," she said.
The number of successful franchisors in Siberia are dozens of companies — from selling coffee to multi-billion dollar business. To the latter, for example, the company "2GIS". "Franchising is a major tool for territorial development "2GIS". Most of the offices are open on this model. Since almost all major cities in Russia, we have already covered, now the main vector — the launch of projects in the CIS,— says Director of franchising of the company "2GIS" Sergey Work.— However, we do not pursue quantity of new points, it is important to find partners that can support the product in its territory and with our support to achieve good commercial results."
This year the company launched a map and guide 2GIS in Shymkent and Aktau (Kazakhstan). In 2016, the volume of advertising sales in the "2GIS" amounted to 4.7 billion rubles, with half of the sales volume in Russia and the CIS generated a franchisee, half — owned stores. "Buying a franchise, various businessmen, the main thing for us — the partner must be ready to give the project the time and attention. 2GIS — this is not a story about "invest and expect a profit." The success of the project largely depends on how actively the owner participates in the project and uses the offered tools," explains Sergei Work. The cost of the franchise "2GIS" depends on the size of the city. Total cost of franchise to open the local office of 2GIS advertising, building a base of advertisers for the withdrawal of the project in the profit of Mr. Vurim estimated at $300 thousand for the average city. About two and a half years, requires franchisees to display in the profit and five years for a return on investment.
For one of the Russian leaders on manufacture of biologically active additives (BAA), ZAO "Evalar", whose headquarters and manufacturing facilities are located in Biysk, selling franchises is a way to expand distribution channels of products and bring to market new brands, as franchisee, under the terms of the contract must have the entire range of products of "Evalar". "Today, the share of BAD does not exceed 5% in the chemists — it is very small. The situation is exacerbated by the concentration of pharmacy chains. This complicates the promotion of brands in pharmacies with mounting marketing costs, there is a narrowing of the range, as pharmacy chains interested in highly liquid positions with high turnover," says the Chairman of the Board of Directors of ZAO "Evalar" Natalia Prokopyeva.
Currently, the number of pharmacies operating under the brand name "Evalar" has reached 122 in 26 regions of the Russian Federation. "Current and 2016 showed the most dynamic growth of the network, which increased by more than 100%. For example, in 2017 under the brand "Evalar" went to 13 pharmacies. The majority of the holders of the franchise is a regional pharmacy",— says Natalia Prokopyeva. Lump-sum payment for the franchise is 5 thousand rubles., a royalty of 0.1% of sales. The cost of registration of a trade hall is 100-300 thousand rubles. "With the average sales ROI is about six to eight months," adds Ms. Prokop.
As told to "the economy of the region," Director of public relations of group of companies "Footwear of Russia" Natalia Pauli, franchising allows you to expand the geography of sales and markets, "go to those cities in which "Obuv Rossii" has not yet developed its own network". In the first half of 2017 GK "Footwear of Russia" has opened more than 50 partner stores in Russia.
The current economic situation favors and Fit Service company (headquartered in Novosibirsk), developing franchise auto service business. "Crisis phenomena in the Russian market led to the fact that many customers of the dealer stations are moving away from them due to high prices and following the hierarchy of the independent garages are not always able to provide normal service. Independent garages, who are in a situation of crisis, start looking out for themselves. At the junction of these two phenomena, our proposal for the franchise gets to the point and demanded",— says the head of the network Fit Service Danil Solovyov. Since the beginning of the year, the company has opened in Russia on franchise 56 service stations, therefore the network has grown to 82 stations in 33 cities. According to Mr. Solovyov, 70% of buyers of the franchise — joining-care centers, 30% — investors who come to this business from scratch.
During the year the cost of the franchise Fit Service decreased from 500-750 100-250 thousand RUB thousand RUB over "We made it a rule to double the number of services annually. And to capture the still empty market, we have reduced the cost of the proposal. This has allowed us to attract more potential customers. In June, we signed 69 new contracts," says Danil Solovyov. The average return on investment of the franchisee in the opening of the points he estimated at 18-24 months.
Especially noticeable on the franchise market of the Siberian restaurateurs. "Now there is a lot of interesting restaurant projects, including fast food and fast casual, but, unfortunately, most of them are closed, as competition in this segment is high. Franchise same — it's at least the experience provided in a single system, easy to operate, explains managing partner of the restaurant chain New York Pizza Yevgenia Golovkova.— Over the past 15 years we systematized the processes of interaction with the franchisee, there is a ready solution to the problem is to daily business management". With the beginning of the year, the company opened three franchise restaurants. The cost of the deductible NYP — from 600 thousand to 1 million rubles depending on the format. The company also takes a 4% royalty and a 2% fee for marketing. The cost of opening a restaurant takes 8-12 million rubles, the expected payback period is three years.
"Today, revenues from franchising activities are in the main, we are only at the beginning. The administrative structure necessary for the development, quality control and service in restaurants as a franchisee, marketing support — all this requires quite costly," says Yevgenia Golovkova.
If NYP franchising — important, but still one of the tools development for the company "FUD-the master" that develops fast food restaurants "Fork-spoon", is the main. "We want to use the current market situation. Today is a good day for active sales of the franchise. There are many potential investors who are looking for options for the right investment. Interest on deposits are falling, to keep money in the Bank as "under the mattress" unprofitable"— lists the favorable factors for their business, the General Director of the company "FUD-the master" Ilya Serov.
In 2017, the company "FUD-the master" has opened five restaurants in Chita, Novosibirsk, Ekaterinburg, Ufa and Nizhniy Tagil. "Among the franchisees are experienced restaurateurs and investors who have not previously had a relationship to food. For example in Chita we opened on the site of the restaurants of the local network. The owner decided to work with a "Fork-spoon" is much more profitable than to continue their own project. In Novosibirsk with us this year, working partner, which the restaurant first," says Ilya Serov. Investments in the project amount of 9 mln RUB and repaid on average within two years. Lump-sum payment for the year increased from 800 to 900 thousand rubles. the calculation of royalties depends on the financial result of the restaurant and is 3-5%. Due to the sale of franchises profitability of the company "FUD-the master" from the beginning of the year increased by 24%.
One of the Champions by number of establishments opened under the franchise, the first year is the Novosibirsk network of coffee houses "the Cheerful day." As told by co-founder Alex balkin, monthly franchise opens three to five stores, the total number of points reached 168. "We work in the segment of micro business on the day of opening enough 500 thousand. So market conditions are loyal to us",— says Mr. balkin. The most sought-after offer for the franchisee's worth 490 thousand RUB Over the money the partner receives a turnkey coffee shop. The average payback period of the franchise "Cheerful day" is about six months.
"Over the past two years have closed less than 10% of coffee shops opened by our franchise. These figures are significantly lower than the close of business of catering the national average. We don't sell a franchise without first evaluating and approving is not the place where you plan to open a coffee shop. This allows you to minimize the risks to our franchisees," says Alex balkin.
According to Agnessa Osipova, the franchise market "in the near future is expected to double the growth and improvement of reliable legislative support." "Prospects of development of franchising in Russia, I firmly believe, the most brilliant. Russia is already among the top-10 countries by the number of jobs in franchising. The number of people employed in such enterprises exceed 500 thousand people, ahead on this indicator such countries as Italy, Spain and Australia— said the head of the RAF.— We see high interest in the development of this format of business and entrepreneurial enthusiasm for the development of franchising concepts. Confident that this synergy will result in the Siberian regions to the growth of franchising, outpacing the average 15% in the country." In her opinion, the greatest potential of development in the franchise business in the medium and small settlements of Siberia, where it is still poorly represented.
I see great potential for the growth of your business and participants of the Siberian franchise in the market. All respondents "transition region" Siberian entrepreneurs developing business through the sale of the franchise, announced ambitious plans for the development before the end of this year and in 2018. "This year we plan to finish with 115 stations. A large number of people signed contracts with us, a huge number of stations is in the process of opening. Until the end of the year we plan to open 8-10 services on a monthly basis. And 2018 we are planning to finish with 230 services," said Danil Solovyov. "This year we plan to open another three restaurants New York Pizza, including one franchise in Barnaul. In 2018, implement a minimum of ten projects, seven of which were franchise", says Yevgenia Golovkova.
And the company "FUD-the master" is expected before the end of the year to increment "at least ten restaurants." "Next year we plan to open at least 20 restaurants, and by the beginning of 2020 — to create a network of 100 institutions,— said Ilya Serov.— The requests are coming from different cities of Russia, including Moscow and Vladivostok. After participating in the exhibition Buybrand Expo 2017 franchise in partners from Belarus and Kazakhstan."
