Are you interested in franchising your high-tech or complex business? Does your business require a strong dealer or distributorship network? Can you see yourself selling through franchised units, but are you unsure of how to recruit skilled and knowledgeable franchisees?
We help you design a franchise that you can sell. We help put together the franchise offering paperwork. We create the training programs and franchise operations manuals.
And we help you structure your business model so you can sell franchises. So your franchisees make money and you make money.
Franchising appears to some people to be easy and full of riches. It can be, but it is also a minefield. Unfortunately, most of the franchise consultants out there are great at selling their services but they are expensive and often dont deliver.
How to hire a franchise consultant
People who want to franchise their business often spend unnecessary money. And they get confused between the role of a consultant and the role of a law firm.
Think of a franchise consultant as you would an architect, and a law firm as you would a draftsman. The consultant helps design your franchise, while the law firm drafts the proper paperwork.
And remember this: when you hire a consulting firm, what counts is not just the firm, but the main individual who will be working on your account.
We are a small low-overhead firm specializing in helping you franchise complex, difficult to explain, or business-to-business franchises.
We work with an outstanding law firm that is also specialized and low-overhead.
Working as a team, together we have vast knowledge of how to sell franchises, how to structure them, how to handle client service issues, how to figure out a business model that makes money and how to do training and support. Free 30 minute phone consultation

My firm charges a flat fee for most of our work. I dont like hourly work because you never know how many hours something will take and a client doesnt like something that is open-ended. When we work together, you get my experience
