Getting Started        
To get started, each candidate will need to fill out a candidate evaluation form.  When completed, we will then contact you in order to proceed.  Please click on the following link when you are ready:


Candidate Evaluation Form


Consultation
Based on a thorough assessment and analysis, we will introduce a few franchises to you for discussion and consideration. Please understand that you are not under any obligation to proceed with any franchises that are introduced to you.  Our goal is to evaluate and then re-evaluate if necessary until we find a perfect match for you.  Also, franchisors will also be closely evaluating any potential candidate we introduce to them.  Reputable franchisors are not interested in awarding a franchise to just anyone as this would be detrimental to them as much as you.


Review of Franchise Documents (FDD)
Once we have determined a potential fit for you, we will then do a needs analysis and availability for your area.  If the franchisor is in agreement, they will send you a Franchisor Disclosure Document (FDD) for you to thoroughly review and examine. We will also help you get all your questions answered.

Call Franchisees

The FDD will also contain a list of Franchisees and contact information.  It is highly recommended that you speak with the Franchisees in order to gain an understanding of what it is like to operate a franchise unit in their system.  It is essential to ask the right questions of the existing and past Franchisees. We will supply you a list of questions to assist in this process. This is a great opportunity to learn valuable information from those with the experience. This is your opportunity to validate the franchise opportunity and get an idea about the profitability of the franchises.

Consultation with Attorney and Accountant
We encourage you to consult with an attorney and/or accountant before purchasing a franchise.  We want to make sure you are represented appropriately.  If needed, we can make recommendations for you.

Attend a Discovery Day
Most franchisors have a Discovery Day where they invite prospective franchise partners to visit a specific franchise location and see how the franchise is run. You will not only get crucial information to assist in making your decision, but will get to meet the staff that will be supporting you in the operation of your franchise business.

Decision Time
Once you have gone through all the previous steps, it is time for you to make a decision. Should you choose to own a franchise, you can be confident that you have taken the necessary steps towards controlling your own life, by owning your own business!
