Franchising Your Business

Congratulations on creating a successful business that is ready to expand into new markets by way of franchising. But as you may already know, the transition from business owner to franchisor is not insignificant.

Transitioning your business into a franchise opportunity that is marketable, sellable, and successful takes a significant amount of planning and legwork. Aside from the legal aspects of franchising (and those are substantial), there are dozens upon dozens of practical concerns that entrepreneurs must consider before transitioning their business into a successful franchise system. For starters, you'll need to write an operations manual, create a training program, develop technology systems for multiple locations, design a franchise sales program, provide support for franchisees, and prepare for annual financial audits. A franchise attorney is essential in drafting the legal documents for franchising, but wouldn’t it be nice to also work with someone who has the hands-on experience of transitioning a business into a franchise? And a successful one at that.

That’s Where We Come In.
