Our first step is pre-development. Our comprehensive checklist is designed to prepare our clients for the best outcomes by addressing matters upfront. Some of the materials we request during pre-development are: company profile, trademarks, website, social media, printed materials, service menus, etc.
Building the Model
We will create a Franchise profile. We will identify the type of business model that will be offered as a franchise opportunity. Based on the nature of our client’s products, service or business, we will suggest who would be a great franchisee, whether or not a franchisee will need exclusive territories, and the degree of exclusivity. We will research and analyze demographic data to determine appropriate place of new franchises and create a target list for expansion.
Compliance and Legal
We will provide pertinent information to your attorney for the completion of your Franchise Agreement. The agreement defines the contractual relationship between the franchisor and the franchisee. The FDD - Federal Disclosure Document is required by the Federal Trade Commission and state regulatory agencies.
Operations Review and Manual
We will develop a preliminary outline that identifies and describes the topics that should be covered in the comprehensive Franchise Operations Manual. The manual will include the provisions from the Franchise Agreement and delineate the areas of which systems must be maintained and monitor the operations of the franchisee.
We will create a customized comprehensive manual, incorporating information essential to the operations of the franchise. Its content will be based on the data obtained in meetings with the client and observation of the business.
We will review the brand and marketing management of the franchise. The Marketing Management plan is based on our client’s expansion goals and the profile of the target franchise owner. We will recommend specific marketing activities and focus on the designated target group.
