Getting the Most out of Your Franchise Consultant
Updated: Aug 29, 2019
Oftentimes, we go through the rat race of life without giving much thought to what we're doing. Why? Because it's simply what we're used to doing day after day. We operating on auto-pilot, habitual, if you will. We give little thought to changing our routine until something drastic happens like loss of a job, transitioning from corporate, loss of a spouse/partner, sudden inheritance of a large amount of money, birth of a child, etc. This is when we find ourselves contemplating that NEXT THING to offer another stream of income, greater financial security for the family or quite simply a better quality of life. Many franchise clients are looking at franchise business ownership to fill that gap for a variety of reasons. These personal drivers translate to motivation for working with them in the most effective and efficient manner possible which results in saving time and money. There are thousands of franchises available...how do you decide which ones are best for you and which ones aren't? It's extremely difficult and frustrating for someone not familiar with the industry to find the best one on their own.
Certified Franchise Consultants (CFC) work with their clients to uncover their rationale for franchise business ownership by:
Understanding Your Goals and Objectives
My clients approach me from various stages in life and for various reasons with the goal of finding a "winning" franchise. Because of these very personal drivers, I work with each client to build trust while understanding their goals and objectives in wanting to own a franchise business. Make sure that your Franchise Consultant is a good listener because your goals and objectives should be at the core of the engagement.
Identifying Matching Franchise Brands for Success
Once your goals and objectives have been clearly articulated, your franchise consultant should present you with franchise options that directly support your goals and objectives. The investment level, required management style and franchise operations should ultimately be in alignment with your interests. If the recommended franchise doesn't spark an interest from you or if you can't see yourself getting on board with the brand, don't hesitate to be forthcoming with the franchise consultant. Transparency during this process will assist in getting to the right franchise brand.
Providing Introductions to Franchise Brands
The franchise consultant should broker an introduction to the franchise brand(s) of your choice. This will provide you with the opportunity to learn more about the brand and to ask detailed questions. Your franchise consultant will ensure you're aware of what to expect and can offer suggestions/questions to guide the conversation.
Leveraging other Franchise Partners (Funding, Attorney's, CPA's)
There are a number of individuals that you will need to work with while looking to invest in a franchise. Your franchise consultant should already have these relationships and will be able to refer you to trusted funding agents, attorneys, CPA's, etc. Locating these individuals on your own can be very costly if you engage with an inappropriate source.
