We’ve Got A Process That Works
Buying a franchise is deceptively complicated and far riskier than most people realize.
This is a decision that is going to require a significant investment of honesty, heart, time and money on your part.
To be successful, you will need to find something you can get excited about, something that you’re going to enjoy doing. Choosing to purchase a franchise is a lifestyle decision.
Making the right choice for you and your goals is critical. And, too often people just don’t get it right.
So, how do you start evaluating the overwhelming number of franchise opportunities to find the perfect one for you?
That’s where I can help. I have extensive experience with every aspect of buying and owning a franchise. I owned 2 franchise fitness centers for 5 years.
I know what the franchisors I work with are looking for in a potential franchisee. And, I share my “insider knowledge” about the inner-workings of their franchise model candidly with my clients.
Bottom-line – if I don’t think a specific franchise is a good fit for you, I will tell you so. I need to know that both of us are going to sleep well at night.
The end results are franchise recommendations that meet your needs and you avoid costly mistakes.
Why You Need An Advisor
Introducing You To The Best Franchises
We introduce our clients to the best franchise companies.
We have the flexibility to operate across a wide variety of fields and include franchised companies in industries such as property services, personal services, fast food, manufacturers, real estate, auto, and many others.
We take the time to thoroughly explain the rights, responsibilities, duties, and obligations of all parties involved in the franchise relationship. If problems arise between the franchisor and the franchisee, it is usually because one of these four steps was not followed carefully:
The Business Plan
Clarity – Research – Potential – Ownership
STEP 1 - DEFINING YOURSELF & WHAT'S MOST IMPORTANT
We have been in the business world for well over 20 years with a majority of that time spent as senior executives with well-known franchise companies. Time and time again we’ve noticed one key attribute that great franchise owners’ share – a strong sense of self-awareness.
It’s not always easy to truly understand yourself and the opportunities your talents, interests, and wealth can create.
We have the experience and knowledge to help you find a business that fits what you want to achieve.
We will walk you through what being a franchise owner really means, and we will help you cut through any red tape you may face in your way.
We will tell it to you straight and not waste your time. We want you to end up with a business that has a solid foundation based on who you are.
The most important compass in your journey is the understanding of your direction in your world and how you wish to interact with it.
STEP 2 - EXPLORATION & RESEARCH
Once we assess your strengths and what fits your lifestyle, the next leg of our journey is exploring the industry.
With over 3,000+ registered franchise companies available in the marketplace, determining the right one can certainly seem like an intimidating task.
We are fortunate to have a wealth of resources at our disposal to help pre-screen these franchises.
We work with some of the most recognized and successful franchise companies in every industry — retail, food, automotive, personal service, property service and many more.
STEP 3 - POTENTIAL
Not all franchises are created equal. The bare bones truth is some franchises are amazing, some are mediocre, and some could perform much better than they currently are.
Working with us as your guide you will understand what to look for in evaluating your options and making what could be a difficult process much more manageable.
Working together, we will determine the best ways to articulate your interests and how they would mesh with potential franchises.
We will empower you with a wealth of knowledge about the various territories and industries you may be entering.
Ultimately, we will serve as YOUR ambassador, bringing you to the franchise world educated and ready to make informed decisions.
STEP 4 - OWNERSHIP
The final leg of our journey together gives you a chance to dive further into franchises that we end up picking as your finalists.
We will determine which one is your best choice by interacting with a multitude of industry experts from legal advisors, financial advisors, other franchisees, the franchisor, and even the competition.
You will be able to examine documents like the Franchise Disclosure Document that overviews each individual franchise separately and to understand the options you have to finance your business in a cost-effective and efficient manner.
When we are finished with this process, you will have made a choice that fits your interests, skills, and objectives.
Most important of all, you will have everything you need to evaluate your opportunities and be confident in your decisions.
