The Process

We are retained by top franchise companies to bring them talented people that fit their model and their culture.

First, please understand that our services do not cost you anything.

Initial Consultation

The initial consultation consist of you and I getting to know each other. It is important for your consultant to understand what brought you here in the first place.
We want to understand who you are. We do a full assessment of your lifestyle, competency, and financial goals. Many franchises are selected based on what someone likes, what they know, or what they feel.

We focus on the facts for you to make a logical, informed decision. Some of these questions during our initial consultation will include:

  • What are your income needs and goals?
  • Do you want customers to come to you or do you want to go to the customers?
  • Are you most comfortable with other business owners, or directly with the consumer?
  • What are your family and home needs that may limit your time in your new business?
  • Based on your past work experience, what have you enjoyed the most and the least?
  • Will you need funding to get your business?
  • How many days do you want your business to be “open”?
  • What businesses have you looked at and why?

If you would like to get started with our online questionnaire we have two options.

Our “Short Quick Start” questionnaire will take you about 5 minutes and will give us a very top line look at what companies may work well for you.
Our “Full in Depth” questionnaire will provide us a deeper understanding of what you are qualified for and where your interest are.

Industry Selection

This is where we do our work behind the scenes. We take your assessment and review different business models and concepts to determine if they align with your lifestyle and financial goals. Since we recruit for so many companies, we are not biased to one industry nor one company. We represent all industries! We focus on what is best for you based on our initial consultation, our online assessment tool and an in depth questionnaire.

Presentation Call

We will schedule a time to present 3 or 4 business concepts to you.

Franchise Company Analysis

Once you have decided on a concept and industry that really seems to offer you a business you can excel in, we provide information on each franchise business we discussed. This can include the company website, E-Brochures, industry information, an understanding of the role of the owner, and an our exclusive “Interview Questionnaire” for your discussions with the franchise company.

The Analysis is done by you and provides us with your initial likes and dislikes.

Review of Franchise Disclosure Documents (FDD)

Once you have received an FDD from a franchisor, you will need to thoroughly examine the contents and seek answers to any questions you may have. The franchisor will readily assist you in finding the answers to any questions.

Validation

At this point, you have heard from us and the Franchise Representatives. The Validation process is a critical step and allows you to validate the information you heard from the franchise corporate office. The franchisees who are around the country will tell you their experiences. We will provide you with an Interview Questionnaire to insure the Validation Process will provide you the most value. Those franchisees will help you with your projections, determine if the company can meet your lifestyle and financial goals, and take the time to get an unbiased perspective of the “day in the life of a franchisee”.

Invitation/Discovery

After you have had multiple conversations with the franchise company, reviewed the Franchise Disclosure Document, completed Validation Interviews, and have a depth of understanding for the company, you will be invited to a Discovery Day. This invitation is provided to people who corporate feels will be a successful franchisee. Since there is an inter-dependent relationship between the Franchisor and the Franchisee, both parties must feel it is a good fit. Good companies interview You as much as you interview THEM! This is the time you can meet the people that you “may” sign a contract with!

Once you come back, usually you have enough facts to make an informed, competent decision!!!

Decision Time

Once you have gone through all the previous steps, it is time for you to make a decision. Should you choose to own a franchise, you can be confident that you have taken the necessary steps towards controlling your own life, by owning your own business!
