Engage with us

  • Step 1: Connect With Us

    Before you get started on your search for a franchise or a new business, it is important to examine your knowledge of franchising and what is most important to you in a franchise. If you don't understand what you're looking for or why, it's probably going to be pretty hard to find it. It just takes a few minutes if you have the right questions and from there you start exploring what’s right for you.

    There is no time like now to see what options you have. Your contact information is always kept confidential and is reviewed by our trained staff to provide you the best opportunities for your particular requirements.

  • Step 2: Consultation

    Have you thought about what it takes to go into business for yourself? Many people think that they can just buy a franchise and let someone else run it, which can happen, but is not the case with many. They also think that because it's a franchise, it will be easy. Well, the fact is, it is much easier then starting something from scratch, but nowhere near easy. Running a business is always demanding. It takes a ton of determination and will. It takes discipline and emotional strength. It takes patience and realistic expectations. Franchising is not a get rich quick scheme. It's a get rich faster, with a lot less risk, long term plan. It does not produce instant results, in most cases.

    Are you really prepared to ride the waves of business ownership knowing that it will not be an easy or a smooth ride? If your answer is yes, our consultants will help.

    From here the process become much simpler, fill out the Request for Information. One of our consultants will contact you to set up an appointment to discuss your goals in finding the right franchise for you and to assist you with all the resources you need to get started on your path to franchise ownership. This will take about an hour and can beaccomplished through a personal meeting. Understanding your particular goals and needs will allow us to find the best opportunity for you after which you will be asked to register with us.

    We will then set a follow up appointment to present you with opportunities that fit your requirements.

    Thereafter, the award process can be quite stringent for reputed brands, but don't worry, we've been through this several times and know exactly how to help you every step of the way. And if you are just tired kicking and looking for information, that's ok too. We'll still help you find what you need and get you on your way.

  • Step 3: Research

    First off, are you aware that there are hundreds of different types of franchises? And no, they are not all in the food or the education or the retail industry. If you click on our Franchise directory you will get a list of all the different segments that are available. Have a look around there and see if anything sparks your interest. We'll wait for you. Ideas and curiosity should be flowing through your head right now, but let's stay focused just a little while longer, while you’ve given us your details.

    We take the information you provide research available franchises and match them with your stated goals and needs. There are over 1500 franchises and our goal is to identify the best 5-8 franchises that match your requirements.

  • Step 4: Recommendations

    The selected franchise concepts are presented to you along with data and reasons why they are viable choices.

    Several times, we have with us emerging opportunities, which are not so popular, and which we could bring to your notice. If you have been having difficulties in reaching the top brands, our industry contacts, will help you reach them easily.

    This will either take you to step 5 or back to step 3 where additional choices may be recommended to you.

  • Step 5: Introduction to Franchisor

    The consultant will put you in contact with exactly the right person with each concept in which you are interested who will then walk you through their business model and provide you with a copy of their franchise kit or their detailed franchise model.

  • Step 6: Discovery Day

    What are you buying with a franchise? Do you know the answer to that question? Most people think they are buying a brand name. Of course, that has something to do with it, but it is NOT the primary reason you purchase a franchise. You are buying a system. You are buying someone else's education from the school of hard punches. You are paying them to save you the millions in ineffective processes and systems also known as “trial and error”. You are buying a fully- fledged instruction manual on how to do every single aspect of your business well, the first time around, not the tenth. This is invaluable.

    You will receive all of the research tools and support necessary to fully investigate the franchise all the way through our Discovery Day module, during which we will help you with the franchise model review, funding options, franchise owner research, ROI understanding, legal complexities and everything that you will need in terms of assistance to take a new business.

  • Step 7: Own a Successful Business

    Now that you understand franchising a little better, think about all the things that you would want to have in your business. That is if we haven't scared you off! Close your eyes and picture your perfect life. What kind of business would you run? What kind of hours would you work? How much money do you want to make? What type of customers would you want? How many employees will you hire? What could you do that would make you feel amazing at the end of the day? A good tip here is to think about what you currently enjoy in your existing business/profession and also what you currently complain about. These are things that you'll want to address, include, and/or exclude from your dream business.

    Our goal is to make everyone that reaches us better off after they've had contact with us. It's all about helping people succeed. That's the point of what we do.

    Experience the security of being a successful franchise owner.

    Contact us today. We look forward to servicing you in a way that you’d never buy a business without our advice, ever-after.
