20+ Years of highly successful Franchise experience, both as a Domestic / International Franchisor and a Franchise owner, will provide you with all of the resources and information needed to take a solid business model and transform it into a successful Nationwide / International (if desired) Brand! We can help you (at a VERY reasonable cost!) develop, market and sell the Franchise program for your Company:
1. Taking your current business, analyzing the concept to move it from a solid local Company to a viable Franchise concept by determining any changes that will have to be made to make it meet FTC and registration state’s requirements including a National Trademark.
2. Helping tweak the financial side so the business model will have a great appeal, based on current, successful National competitors.
3. Putting the Franchise Program together including determining whether a protected territory is needed, the option of doing both individual Franchise owners and Master Franchisees.
4. Determining initial Franchise fees to be charged, on-going royalty fees, advertising fees, etc.
5. Determining the total investment that will be needed to put a Franchise owner from the start-up stage to the positive cash flow position. Being able to offer a business which will create a solid return on that investment will determine success!
6. Helping put a Corporate structure together including marketing and sales, training, support, etc. Helping to determine how that staff will grow and evolve as the Franchise system expands.
7. Having experienced Operations Manuals for highly successful Franchise concepts, will provide a model to use to create the document which keeps the Franchise owners on track to achieve success.
8. We will create the initial Franchise Disclosure Document and Franchise Agreement once all of the business model decisions are made. These documents will contain all of the legal disclosures and information required by the FTC and registration states by giving the Franchise prospects a full disclosure of the Company, the business and the relationship between the Company and the Franchise owner. By providing this service, all that has to be done legally is a document review, this saves tens of thousands of dollars from having to have an attorney create the documents!
9. Speaking of attorneys, we have relationships with Franchise and Trademark attorneys who will provide your needed services at a much lower cost than the huge Franchise legal firms in Washington DC and other major cities. We will quickly obtain approval from the regulatory authorities for all of the documents based on relationships and draft documents that already meet their regulations! Part of the Franchise Disclosure Document is a financial review of the Franchisor, we will also help accomplish this requirement at a much lower cost.
10. Again, using highly successful experience to develop the Franchise Marketing and Sales programs which once again accomplish great growth and success at a lower cost than many other Franchisors experience. The Marketing program includes not only creating leads, but also web site design, on-line and local advertising programs, and Franchise sales materials to be delivered by email and regular mail. Putting together the actual sales program, including managing and qualifying the leads, the full sales process including Discovery Days, follow ups and closing procedures.
11. Once a very successful Franchise program has been developed, a lot of times the on-going growth of the Company requires changes to the corporate structure. The overall success of the top Franchise concepts in the United States are based on taking a solid business model, using the Franchise advantage of local ownership and developing a well known National brand. The main key to this success is attracting good, solid individuals, preferably experienced business people, getting them excited about your concept, making sure that your concept is very competitive in the field which helps lead to success and then the number one key to success: excellent training and on-going support for the Franchise owners as well as establishing a solid relationship with the owners through monthly corporate newsletters, regional and national meetings and annual Franchise Conventions which help keep them motivated!
12. Some of our favorite sales slogans are:
“GET YOUR LIFE BACK – BE YOUR OWN BOSS!”
“TAKE CONTROL OF YOUR LIFE, AND YOUR FUTURE, BY
OWNING YOUR OWN SUCCESSFUL BUSINESS!”
Having put the Sales and Marketing programs together and
executing them which created millions and millions of dollars
in revenue for successful Franchisors over the years, we will
be on-board to help create and execute a high level of success
for your Company through Franchise development!
