- Would you like to be a hands on owner - or a semi absent owner?
Entry of Your Preferences Into Our Franchise Portal

- We conduct a territory check to make sure these franchises are available in your area
- We discuss funding options which include TSP, 401k rollover - penalty free, as well as SBA loans.
We Present Multiple Franchise Options to You
- This is a fun meeting for you!
- We will present you 3-6 options that match your stated requirements
- All of these options will have confirmed availability in your area
- We decide which of these options warrant a phone call to learn more
Initial Conversations With Franchisors
- We will provide you with a list of questions for the franchisor
- You will learn a lot on this call
- If it goes well - you will receive additional information from the franchisor
- They will most likely send an invite to a webinar that goes deeper into the opportunity
The Final 4 Steps to Franchise Ownership
At this point... you are clearly excited about a specific opportunity
This will give you clarity on the franchise opportunity
- The FDD sets expectations on the relationship between you and the franchisor
- It usually provides an Item 19 - which presents financial reporting on other franchisees
- This is an important part of your due diligence - and is required by the Federal Trade Commission
- This is not an agreement, but a document for clarification
You Will Speak to Existing Franchisees
- We will provide you with a list of questions to ask the current franchisees
- If they had to do it over again... would they?
- Are they receiving adequate support from the franchisor?
- Have they bought more than one unit?
- These conversations will give you a good feel for the franchise culture and satisfaction of the franchisees
Franchise Discovery Day
An Onsite or Virtual Visit With the Franchisor
- Also known as "decision day" - this is an important meeting
- It allows you to meet with the entire team - and is usually a lot of fun!
- It provides you one more layer of clarity on your important decision
- Some are structured with 10 candidates - others are one on one meetings
- Both you and the franchisor will leave this meeting knowing the final decision
Final Agreement & Celebration!
You clearly understand what Mark Twain meant when he said... "Twenty years from now you'll be more disappointed by the things you didn't do, than the ones you did." Congratulations!
