Mike has been a mentor for me. Mike’s experience in the wonderful world of franchising seems endless, and he’s very generous with his knowledge. Most recently I came to a serious impasse and was considering leaving the industry. I called Mike for advice. We got on a call and he went through my process. He gave me two “tweaks” that were game-changers. No exaggeration, once again Mike’s good counsel was enormous. Thank you so much Mike!

What does a franchise consultant do?
The role of a franchise consultant is to assist entrepreneurs in their road to become franchise owners; they are not salesmen. They’re assistants and coaches. A franchise broker, on the other hand, is a person who works as a representative of the franchisor’s development team, selling franchises on their behalf.
How much does franchising consulting business charge?
Yes, it’s completely free. Hundreds of franchisors, licensing and business opportunities, as well as existing companies for sale, collaborate with us. These companies enlist our assistance in locating suitable and knowledgeable purchasers. Employers pay “Head Hunters” or employee placement services to locate qualified applicants, and these corporations pay us directly to assist them in locating qualified franchisees. While our services might be very helpful, you will never be charged anything more for using our Free Consultation.
Does utilizing a Franchise Consultant increase my startup expenses?
Questions to ask a franchise consultant.
Here are three qualifying questions to ask a franchise consultant before you interact with them:
- Is there a fee for your assistance in locating a good franchise investment?
- What is your professional background and franchising experience?
- What is the extent of your involvement in the search?
What if I don’t want to buy a Franchise or a business? Am I obligated to keep working with you?
Of course not. If you decide at any point that you are not ready to buy a franchise, please let us know and we will wish you luck. Because not everyone is cut out to be a Franchisee, if you–or we–discover that you’d be better off doing something else, the process may be halted or placed on pause.
