How will FranCnsult find the best franchise for me?

Our goal is to find an opportunity that will meet the specific needs of each individual we work with. To do this effectively, we first have to learn what those needs are. We will ask you a series of detailed questions. Some sample questions you will be asked are:

  • What is your background?
  • Where do you want your business to be located?
  • How do you feel about managing people?
  • How much capital do you have to invest?
  • Will you have partners?
  • Do you want to build multiple units or territories?

  • Will you be involved, how many hours per week/month?
  • Do your prefer" bricks and mortar" type franchises?

These are just a few of the many issues we will discuss with you over the course of our consultation process. With this information we can create a personalized profile and model for you to use in evaluating opportunities. We can also usually match our clients with a few opportunities that have characteristics consistent with the ones they're looking for in order to save time and effort in the process.

Why should I buy franchises?
