  •            Have you ever owned a business of your own?
  •            What hours do you like to work?
  •            Where do you want your business to be located?
  •            How do you feel about managing people?
  •            How much capital do you have to start a business with?
  •            Will you have partners?
  •            Do you want to build multiple units or territories?
  •            How soon do you want your business to open?
  •            Will you be involved on a full-time or part-time basis?
  •            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 a franchise?

Franchising offers individuals the opportunity to be in business for themselves, but not by themselves. You are buying into a proven system. The Franchiser is there to provide support with all the different functions of the business. They have seen the issues that can arise in their business and know how to deal with any problems effectively. Prior to your opening, they provide extensive initial training and support so you're well prepared to handle whatever comes. They can also provide advertising and marketing support to help build your business faster. The most significant benefit to franchising is the reduced level of risk. This comes from a franchise system's brand recognition and proven method of doing business.
