The Steps to Business Ownership
As Members of the International Franchise Professionals Group (IFPG) we know how important this step is to you and your family, and we are here to help you with your search for the perfect business.
Like most successful businesses, we have a well-defined process in place. Our technology, inventory and resources will save you time and streamline your search. When you work with us, we’ll get you in front of the right franchises and appropriate contacts who can answer your specific questions.
Our Simple Path to Success
Step 1. Information Gathering
We’ll discuss your goals, transferrable skills, funding options, previous experience, and your personal and business preferences. Everyone is different and you owe it to yourself to talk to someone who has been trained to ask questions that will quickly bubble up the optimal franchise opportunities for you.
Step 2. Researching Your Options
We’ll begin researching and speaking with Franchisors on your behalf. We have resources, tools, and experience that will help streamline the process. Once we have 2 to 4 Franchises that we feel meet your criteria, we’ll move on to Step 3.
Step 3. Discussing Your Potential Future Business
Most of our Clients really enjoy Step 3. During this step you’ll hear about the Franchises that may be a good fit for you. You’ll spend time with us discussing the attributes of these franchise models and why we think that you should research them further.
Step 4. Speaking with Your Future Partner – The Franchisor
Once we have identified the Franchises that we both feel are “good fits” for you, we’ll set up a time for you to speak with them directly. You’ll be hearing about the Franchisor business models, the daily activities of their Franchisees and what it takes to grow your new business.
And best of all, using an IFPG Franchise Consultant will never add a single dime to your new franchise purchase.
