Are you a good listener? Are you passionate about helping others fulfill their goals and dreams? Do you hate commuting to an office and want to spend more time with your family? If you answered “yes” to these questions, you might make a great FranServe Affiliate Franchise Consultant.
FranServe franchise consultants build a lucrative business by mentoring and coaching their clients through the franchise selection, evaluation and buying process as well as by helping them access the capital to own and operate that franchise.
“Becoming a FranServe consultant was the best investment we’ve ever made. Franchising is a booming industry that’s only going to continue to grow. With FranServe’s training and support, you’ll be able to provide valuable advice and guidance to people who are looking to become their own boss with a great franchise,” said Jack Johnson, co-founder and CEO of The Franchise Insiders, a FranServe affiliate.
A franchise consultant’s role is not to sell to a client. Rather, they are experts in franchise ownership and assist their candidates – who are often novices in the world of franchising – through the education and discovery process of investing in a franchise or business opportunity. Franchise consultants use a series of tools, skills, resources and experience to help clients assess their financial situation, personality, short and long-term goals and skill sets. A consultant also has the resources to help existing business owners determine if franchising can be used to help them grow their businesses.
For Julie Goldberg, president of Evergreen Franchise Advisors, being a FranServe Affiliate Franchise Consultant has impacted her career and life as well. “How do I love franchise consulting? Let me count the ways. Being a FranServe Consultant has been life-changing, not only for me and my family but for my candidates too. I am truly blessed to have found my calling. I love the freedom and autonomy that being a consultant offers. As cliché as it sounds, I’m in business for myself but not by myself. I control my own destiny, I set my own hours, I am responsible for my successes and failures and I am accountable to only myself and my candidates. I’m thrilled and lucky to be living the dream,” she said.
FranServe, Inc. is the world’s largest franchise consulting and expansion organization, with hundreds and hundreds of franchise brands and business opportunities in its portfolio. Having a large number of franchise brands is beneficial because it provides consultants with the ability to recommend a variety of options that a client may have never considered. With referral payments averaging at $26,000 for a single unit, a franchise consultant can make a great living and never leave the house.
FranServe provides extensive training through online, live and pre-recorded courses, and it has a special program for becoming a Certified Franchise Consultant (CFC). It also offers other programs to help consultants become successful and maintain that success, including ongoing mentorships, multiple lead sources, one-on-one coaching, franchisor webinars, in-person consultant Discovery Days, an online coaching series and an annual convention at the Walt Disney World Resort in Orlando, Florida.
