How to Differentiate a Good Franchise Consultant From the Rest
When we meet people and tell them about what we do, it is not uncommon for them to tell us that they have never heard of a franchise consultant service like ours before. They sometimes ask why someone would want our help.
If they have heard about our unique niche in franchising, it may be because they met someone else who does something similar to what we do. In that case, they may be asking us what makes us different.
So the answer to the question “why would someone want the help of a franchise consultant” is that we have been doing this a long time….14 years in Texas to be exact! We also know the local market and availability of territory for many franchises, because we work hand-in-hand with franchisors. In addition, we have the local resources people need to get the business off the ground, like attorneys, bankers and CPAs. As a result, most of our business comes from local referrals.
There are other franchise consultants out there but one of our unique differentiators is that we meet with our clients face-to-face in one of our offices. We know getting into business is a big decision. It deserves proper guidance and help as well as a personal relationship. Our service definitely is not a “drive-up” service like some franchise consultants have on the internet. People should be wary of “franchise consultants” they meet that way who offer up franchise options after only speaking to you for just a few minutes. Unfortunately, sometimes they are just trying to push a few concepts they know.
Finding the right franchise fit takes time, and we spend a lot of time with our clients, usually over the course of a few months. Once our clients are in business, we enjoy seeing them grow and using their goods and services in our local market.
Bottom line – in working with a franchise consultant, you have to work with someone you trust who is working with your best interest in mind. And recognize that acting in your best interest may lead to your consultant telling you that maybe now isn’t the time or perhaps franchise ownership isn’t right for you.
