Meet with a Franchise Consultant

  • Visit the Head office.
  • How many years has the firm been in business?
  • What is the knowledge and franchise experience that the proposed team has?
  • Is there a project head that will take complete responsibility of your franchising and you will not be lost with the other more important clients the company is working with.
  • Are there systems and processes defined to help clients get success?
  • Review the client list and the previous work the company has done and seek referrals.
  • Are they really interested in franchising your business correctly or are looking as another client who would add to their marketing activities.
  • Are they accredited to the governing franchise association?
Are you moving forward with Franchising?

  • Do personalized detailed meeting with specialized franchise consultants
  • Talk with your chartered accountants, business advisors, close friends and relatives
  • Make a realistic assessment of the resources you have to move forward in terms of:
    • The Capital and Finances that you have
    • The Personnel
    • The passion and energy that you have to make it happen the time
    • To roll out your franchise network or will you need to fast track the recruitment of franchisees.
    • To attract the initial consumer and then sustain the consumer vis-à-vis anticipated market changes.

Avoid these mistakes as you set out to franchise your business

  • Do not assume ‘franchising.’
  • Do not get started with a P&L Sheet & A return on Investment document for a franchisee.
  • Do not copy & paste bits and pieces of other successful franchise models.
  • Hiring Franchise Managers and Employees will only ensure that you get their perspective of franchising.
  • Its just not enough to have a lawyer do a franchise agreement and get started. Never start with a lawyer, have a complete strategy in place before you even think of getting a legal consultant.
  • If you have never franchised your business before, it’s not easy to do so.
  • Being a Franchisee is much different than running a franchise company.
How long does it take to franchise a business?

It generally is a 3-6 months process provided you have a profitable prototype in place and have standardised operations.Franchising can be done in 60 days as well, if you have the complete attention of the franchisor.

Franchise Performance Consultant
Franchise Times has worked with companies in every segment of franchising and have helped many franchisors achieve a franchise sales breakthrough. We have developed the winning formula for helping franchisors accelerate growth and achieve their growth objectives in this competitive economy.

Significant benefits of working with Franchise Times franchise consulting is, our franchise experience, our strategic planning expertise, and our tactical implementation services and our network / support.

Franchise performance analysis helps business owners in the following ways:

  • Pinpoints differences (or gaps) in potential opportunity with actual performance benchmarks based on real industry franchising metrics.
  • Reveals planning, direction, or other shortcomings, so that strategy and expectations can be adjusted early in the franchise consulting phase.
  • Identifies tactical planning goals and objectives to maximize opportunities.
  • Offers a reality test or confirms one’s franchisability before further investments (financial, people and other resources) are made.
Additionally, our franchise performance metrics spotlights what areas​– from operations and marketing support to technology and real estate investments – need to be addressed in the development of a franchisor’s business infrastructure while the legal documents are being developed.

Working with a qualified franchise consultant upfront avoids the guesswork and better prepares the franchisor for what’s ahead. To our surprise, prospective franchisees often can’t get an answer to the most basic investment questions – How much money does the average franchisee make? How much money can I expect to earn? The reason for this is that close to 70% of all franchisors choose not to include any sales, costs, or other unit financial information in their disclosure documents and, the only way they are legally allowed to give you that information is in those documents.

There are a number of good and valid reasons for franchisors not to provide this basic information. The information they get from the franchisees is unaudited and therefore may not be accurate. The differences in the units themselves, including diversity in size and types of markets, the size of established locations, the differences in maturity of the open locations, variations in the strengths of local competition, impact of brand recognition in new and older markets, and a host of other reasons might make the information misleading. Providing the information in public documents would allow their competition to obtain information on their sales, cost of sales, margins, and sales mix, which also is a valid reason. For some, unit performance is so bad that if they included the results in the offering material, they would have a slim chance of ever selling a franchise.
