On our FranNet blog, we’ve covered a lot of topics. All are related to the franchise industry, including trends, news and informative articles designed to educate our potential clients about entrepreneurship. We hope to cultivate your interest in finding out further information about FranNet and how we help budding business seekers reach their dreams of business ownership.
But this week, we’re going to take a short journey together. You may be hesitant to reach out to a “consultant” because you may think that everyone knows — or should know — everything there is to know about the franchise industry. Nothing could be further from the truth. So many misperceptions exist about franchising, so many opportunities abound in business ownership, and every individual’s needs are extraordinarily unique in what they desire out of business ownership that we uncover all the franchise opportunities that set you up for the best possible chance of business success.
Here, we’re going to explain what happens on your first visit with a qualified franchise consultant with FranNet. With over 25 years of franchise experience and over 100 nationwide consultants, there’s more than likely a FranNet office right in your backyard. Keep in mind that our consultation services are always free of charge throughout the entire process.
Potential franchisees find out about FranNet and our services in many ways. Some have been on our website and accessed our free Road Map to Success Guide. Others may have attended a business ownership seminar or logged into one of our numerous webinars. Some place calls and some email us directly. One of the most common ways is for interested parties to fill out the Find Your Perfect Franchise request form from our website, which quickly locates your local FranNet consultant and helps set up an initial meeting. Regardless of the means, we want you to know what happens next.
Typically, before we begin, we ask our potential clients to fill out the FranNet Personal Franchise Assessment. The assessment takes roughly 20-30 minutes to complete and should be completed online before your first visit. Utilizing your answers and preferences, your local FranNet consultant will then process the information and generate a multi-page report detailing the following information about you. Specifically (and together), we’ll find out about:
– Your values and motivations for business ownership
– Your core competencies
– Your leadership style
– The culture and stage of growth of franchise that best fits you
– Your work style
– Summary of the type of business that fits your needs
– Assistance in helping you organize your personal financial statement
After this assessment, you’ll be invited in for an-person meeting and consultation. Once you arrive, we’ll embark on a discussion to review the assessment and really get to know who you are, what your business aspirations include and where you see yourself as a business owner and an entrepreneur. Together, we’ll build a profile of you that will begin to define what you seek in business ownership in laying out the ideal fit for your future. This is only the first step in what’s going to become critical self-discovery and due diligence to ensure your potential investment in a business is based on sound, fact-based knowledge of yourself and your business.
When you enter a FranNet office, you’re going to meet some of the most friendly and qualified people in the industry. And you will literally have taken your first “steps” to a future under your own direction and destiny. How can we help?
