Should You Franchise?

Visit the business district of San Saba and it's apparent that franchising has become a very popular way to start a business. But is franchising the right option for you?

Picking a Company Name

A good company name can give a big boost to a new startup. It might seem like an easy thing to do, but there are many things to consider when naming a business.

Before you decide on a company name, run it by some prospective customers and see what they think. If they don't like it, it's probably a good idea to go back to the drawing board.

For other considerations regarding naming a company, we recommend this article: Branding Advice.

There's one other important factor when naming a business. Since you are starting a business in San Saba, it's critical that you ensure that no Texas company has already registered the company name you have selected.

Forming a Company in San Saba, Texas

It's essential that your business is formed as a legal entity that is separate from its owners. Without a legal structure for the business, you can be held personally liable for the actions, debts and obligations of your company.

When forming a company, you will choose from many company types, such as a traditional C-corporation, a Limited Liability Company (LLC), or an S-corporation.

Incorporating is a very common way to legally create a business entity. Of course, you have to decide which type of corporation to form and where to incorporate. If you are starting a business in Texas, you don't necessarily have to incorporate in Texas. In fact, you can incorporate in any state you would like to. However, if you do incorporate in another state, you'll have to register as a foreign corporation in your home state.

There are many nuances to forming a company. We recommend you read some of the educational articles about company formation that are availabe on our site, such as Nevada Incorporation. You may also want to seek the advice of an lawyer. On a final note, since you will be starting a business in San Saba, Texas, our web page covering Incorporating in Texas may be a useful resource if you decide to incorporate in Texas.

Getting Money to Start a Business

Obtaining startup financing for your San Saba business is not an easy task. Bootstrapping, which means growing the business without outside funding, is the best alternative, but that's not a viable option for many startup plans.

Fortunately, this site contains dozens of articles on raising money, including one we recommend entitled Business Line of Credit.

For San Saba entrepreneurs on the hunt for startup funding, check out our List of Texas Angel Investors and our List of Texas Venture Capital Firms.
