In October, Franchise Dictionary Magazine highlights the representation of women in the franchise industry. There is a lot to celebrate, as Franchise Business Review reports that women-owned franchise businesses have increased by 38% in the past 10 years.
FranServe, Inc., the largest franchise consulting and expansion organization in the world, has certainly seen its share of increased membership by female franchise consultants. “We are proud to have 35%-40% of our franchise consultant network comprised of women, with a number of women on the Executive Team,” said Alesia Visconti, CEO and President of FranServe.
The increase that FranServe is experiencing is similar to most other industries – it’s tied to the opportunities that FranServe provides women and supports them in being successful.
Here are some benefits that consultants enjoy:
FranServe Affiliate Franchise Consultants set their own hours, choose their areas of focus and determine their business strategies. This creates a work-life balance that fits well into raising children or taking care of aging family members.
“FranServe now has several hundred different franchise brands in our portfolio, which means our Franchise Consultants have ample choices if they decide they’d like to focus on just one or two categories. This can help consultants shape their business and manage exactly what they’re good at, fitting in with their schedule,” explained Visconti.
The Opportunity to Collaborate and Problem Solve
Women are adept at collaborating and problem-solving, and these skills are critical for being a successful franchise consultant. Oftentimes, people seek the help of a consultant as a result of a pain point they’re trying to solve in their lives: being unhappy with their current job or financial situation or thinking about the future for their families. A FranServe Affiliate Franchise Consultant is a skillful collaborator, working closely with their client and the franchisors to find the right match. Consultants leverage these skills daily to help others’ dreams of business ownership come true.
Unlimited Earning Potential
Yes, women care about money. As of 2019, 46.1% of U.S. households were headed by women, according to a survey by the Urban Institute. Women want and need a level of income that will sustain their families and provide them with a lifestyle they can be comfortable in and proud of. FranServe provides a limitless earning potential that is driven by the consultant and how much they choose to put into the business. No manager is setting the salary or bonus structure. There is no one to ask for a raise – just to be denied. As a FranServe Affiliate Franchise Consultant, you get out of it what you put into it.
If you’re a skilled problem solver, desire a flexible schedule and want to work side-by-side with women empowering others to gain success through business ownership, FranServe might just be the right place for you.
