Frequently Asked Questions
What’s the advantage to working with a franchise consultant?
The advantage of working with a franchise consultant is having access to invaluable insider knowledge held by someone with years of industry experience. These tips and insights can help shave significant time and energy off of your franchise search. A dedicated professional franchise consultant will work hard to understand your motivation and goals, help evaluate your current situation, provide a model for your franchisor research, introduce pre-screened companies and act as a guide and resource.
What does it cost to work with a franchise consultant?
Our service is free to you. Your franchise fees will not increase if you choose to use our service. We provide the information a potential franchisee needs to find the opportunity that fits his or her goal. We already have connections with some of the most profitable and successful franchising opportunities in franchising. For someone going through the franchise process independently, it could take months to make those connections on your own.
The potential franchisee pays nothing for the services we provide because we are paid fees by the franchisors who realize that the processes we follow produce quality candidates.
The fees you pay to a franchise business will be the same, regardless of whether you work with us or not.
What does a franchise consultant do that I can’t do on my own?
We help narrow the list of franchise opportunities that fit your goals and have available territory. Our experience allows us to focus on the issues that will have the greatest impact on your franchise decision and produce a model against which you can evaluate your options. Our guidance will save you both time and money.
Is the advice I receive unbiased?
Our mission is to educate you about the process of owning a franchise business. Franchising is all about creating a profitable partnership and because of that, our process is a process of mutual evaluation. We are not interested in matching you to a business that isn’t a strong fit with your criteria – or vice versa – because our reputation for creating quality connections is our greatest asset as consultants.
Will my personal or financial information be sold?
The information you provide is confidential and will only be seen by our consultants and any franchisor with whom you decide to pursue an investigation process.
How long will the process take?
The process is tailored to your needs and timeframe since every individual has unique goals for business ownership.
