Find a Franchise
The matchmaking process! Once we’ve gotten to know you and what type of business model you’re looking for, we’ll select franchise opportunities that we think align.
Franchise Site Selection
Location, location, location. A lot of franchisors do offer support in selecting proper sites for their franchisees. Our team can give you insight into how the process works and what to look for in a promising site.
Franchise Agreement Review
It’s imperative that you and an attorney carefully review the Franchise Agreement Document (also known as the Franchise Disclosure Document or FDD) to make sure you fully understand all aspects of your deal with the franchisor. Once signed, most FDDs are very hard (and costly) to break. We guide you on what to look for — and what to question — when reviewing an FDD.
This is your opportunity to get the real scoop on the franchise brand. Often, franchisees can give you insight that a franchisor cannot. Have a list of questions ready for the franchisee you’re speaking with, and make sure to ask the same queries if you’re talking to more than one owner. Not sure what to ask? We do, and we’ll help you prepare.
Franchise Lease Negotiation
This is where things get really interesting. Landlords can be pretty strict in what they do and don’t allow in their spaces. It’s a classic “give and take” situation. We know how to make sure you’re getting a fair deal when you sign.
Franchise Risk Management
When it comes to franchising, we’ve seen it all. Our franchise consulting services include guidance on risk management — one of the top concerns expressed to us by candidates. Understanding how to manage your risk when starting a new business is key to longevity and success.
