The franchise industry is vibrant, exciting and presents wonderful opportunities for both Franchisors and Franchise Owners. You may be contemplating bringing your new business concept to the franchise market. But not every business idea is “franchise-able”. A franchise organization must create and master two business models… The unit level concept and the parent company as a franchisor. The most frustrating position in which you can find yourself is operating a five year
old franchise company with six units wondering how you got there. We can help.
For companies contemplating franchising we ask the following questions:
Franchise System Builders is uniquely qualified to develop and execute each of these strategies effectively while bringing your vision to market. During our careers, each member of our team has been personally responsible for the answers to these questions and the results they generate. We will create a plan with you to achieve your vision or identify alternatives outside the franchise industry.
Whether you’ve just begun franchising or have several hundred units in your system, our Franchise Outsourcing Program will streamline your sales process, reduce overhead and deliver higher quality franchise applicants ready and capable to invest. Franchise Outsourcing provides three key benefits:
First, your candidates receive the benefits of working with entrepreneurs and executives who are successful as both franchise owners and franchisors. From the very first conversation we develop a positive experience with your brand by working with candidates on a level that respects their experience and success. We know candidates make decisions based upon personal relationships, not surfing web sites. We deliver committed and qualified candidates ready and able to proceed quickly to a close.
Second, every Franchise System Builders member knows from experience how costly it becomes when a franchise is sold to the wrong candidate. When we say we won’t forward a candidate that we would not accept in our franchise, we mean it. When we say Discovery Day is the final approval day, we mean that too.
Third, we eliminate potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars in franchise development staff salaries, expenses and benefits. Upon execution of a franchise agreement and payment of the Initial Franchise Fee, you pay Franchise System Builders a commission. This frees up capital that can be re-directed to lead generation and other strategies.
We participate with your marketing department or supplier to create the lead generation strategy.
We work with each lead generated preparing those qualified to attend Discovery Day. We will bring you only individuals who:
We do not accept competitive concepts and do not redirect leads away from your brand.

The long-term success and marketability of your franchise will ultimately rely on the success of each franchised location in your system. This means that as the franchisor you must recognize the impact of unit economics on the franchise owner’s profitability, how it impacts validation with new franchise candidates and most importantly, how it can be continually improved.
We conduct a comprehensive review of your business model to understand the current effectiveness of each of its components and how each can be improved to deliver outstanding financial results to your franchise owners, strengthening their bottom line, while improving the system as a whole.
Our comprehensive review examines:
Each member of the Franchise System Builders team has over 40 years of experience as a franchise owner, multi-unit developer or principle of a successful franchise company. We clearly understand how strong unit economics not only benefit the franchise owner but are the cornerstone to a successful franchise offering. Most importantly, we know how to present those economics to prospective owners in a manner that increases franchise sales.
Let us help you create a comprehensive plan for improving system unit economics, tailored specifically for your brand and system.
