Research & Presentations
My clients tell me that I find them business they would have never dreamed of. There are so many franchise opportunities out there. Some are great, some good and some not so good and it can be quite difficult to weigh their pros and cons alone. Based on the information that you provided during the consultation, I will research franchise, and possibly non-franchise opportunities to match their models and requirements with your goals and objectives. With over 3500 franchises available in the U.S. today, it is nearly impossible to navigate that vast maze by yourself to determine the best companies to investigate. We’ll also check for territory availability and make sure there are no unusual circumstances that would get in the way of you exploring these franchise opportunities. Our goal is to guide you through that maze and narrow that list down to a handful of companies that closely match your requirements.
In this step, it is very important to have your partner involved. When we present companies to you, what you might think is important and your partner thinks is important is probably going to be very different. Hence, make sure he or she is on the call.
You want to listen closely as to why the companies were selected because we have spent a lot of time doing our research and have very valid reasons why we have picked these brands. Your coach will send you some details about the different companies but most of the information will come from the company itself.
You might think that you can make a decision by just looking at the website and that couldn’t be farther from the truth. You don’t get to look behind the curtain until you engage with the development person. Just looking at the website is clearly not enough.
