Step 1 – Reach Out to Us

The first step in franchising is to contact us.

We have extensive experience in this field and would be delighted to support you on your journey throughout the franchise discovery phase. 

During this stage, we will help clarify your goals, answer any queries you may have and supply you with all the necessary information for you to make an educated decision about your franchising option. 

It is important to stress that getting in touch with us does not obligate you to anything from our end. Our primary goal is to provide you with the pertinent details and respond to your inquiries. 

Additionally, our services won’t cost you a dime as we are paid by the franchises we recruit for; therefore, we provide free consultation and additional support that may follow. 

We believe making a well-informed decision is key and we are more than happy to aid you in this endeavor every way we can.

Step 2 – Consultation

During the consultation, we will review your application and discuss the goals and objectives you have in mind. We want to ensure that franchise ownership is the right fit for you. 

This is also an opportunity to get answers to any questions or concerns you might have about operating a franchise business. 

As part of the discussion, we will provide the necessary information on what’s involved in this significant decision making process – from costs, to time commitments, skill sets and day-to-day operations. 

The consultation will also serve as a platform to determine if there is an agreement between us moving forward with a viable partnership should you choose to purchase a franchise.

Step 3 – Franchise Assessment

The assessment process is a critical part of the franchise selection process. 

It’s important to ensure that you’re matched with the best opportunity for your particular skills and goals. 

That’s why we take into account a variety of factors like your financial situation, business experience, objectives, budget, areas of interest and more. 

We will provide an informative and comprehensive assessment that helps us narrow down the best franchises for you. 

After we have come up with a list of potential franchises based on your feedback, we will make the final recommendations that you can consider when making the decision to invest in a franchise. 

With our expertise and guidance, you can be confident that you are choosing the perfect franchise for your needs and interests.

Step 4 – We Help You Understand the Franchise Disclosure Statement

When you are considering becoming part of a franchise’s network, Step 4 is understanding the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). 

This document is incredibly detailed and covers many aspects of your potential investment. 

It is important that you read through all 61 pages thoroughly before making any decisions about the venture. 

We understand the difficulty inherent in comprehending such a large document and strive to provide insight from our experience working with clients who have invested successfully in these companies. 

Franchising can be a great opportunity, but it’s important to approach it with an informed decision made by researching the FDD documents and gathering meaningful data from them.

Step 5 – Narrow Down the Franchisors

The fifth step in evaluating a potential franchise is to look closely at the franchisor’s company, history and policies. 

The franchisor should be able to provide you with detailed information regarding their experience in the industry, financial stability and track record of success. 

It is important to evaluate these factors thoroughly in order to make an informed decision about whether they are the right fit for your needs, as this will enable you to build trust and feel comfortable working with them. 

Careful evaluation of the franchisor will help ensure that it meets all of your criteria, allowing you to move forward confidently with your decision.

Step 6 – Attend a Franchise Discovery Day

Attending a Franchise Discovery Day is the next step of the franchise process and essential for anyone considering franchising. 

It allows potential franchisees to gain more knowledge about the company’s business model, obtain detailed information about the franchise agreement, tour its facility as well as provide an opportunity to interact directly with current franchisees. 

This ensures a more informed decision can be made after having access to all relevant information and first-hand knowledge about what it takes to become a successful franchisee. 

The Franchise Discovery Day should not be skipped as it provides invaluable insights into this important decision-making process.

Step 7 – Consult With Legal and Financial Experts

Consulting with a legal and financial professional prior to deciding on franchising is a critical step in determining the feasibility of this business choice.

A legal advisor can walk you through the details of the contract, ensuring it is sound and beneficial for all parties involved.

A financial advisor can provide guidance on costs that have to be taken into account and offer insight on the capital necessary to begin. 

Gaining an understanding of these two domains before taking the plunge will weigh heavily in making sure businesses are informed when they make their final decision. Ultimately, these conversations should lead to an informed and confident outcome.
