What the Heck is a Franchise Consultant?
As Certified Franchise Consultants we listen and observe first, then plan. We work with individuals all over this great planet to become entrepreneurs through franchise ownership. Every Individual with whom we consult has different environments, backgrounds, lifestyle preferences, and investment levels. Therefore, it’s critical to listen more, speak less and plan accordingly.
If you’ve never heard of a franchise consultant, you may be confused by the term. Franchise consultants are professionals who help people become franchise owners. When someone wants to explore franchise ownership, rather than become overwhelmed by so many choices, he/she can turn to the help of a franchise consultant. Franchise consultants build their businesses by helping others own a franchise. They reduce confusion by helping their candidates identify and research franchise and business opportunities. A franchise consultant can also help connect people to funding sources they will need to start their franchise business. Franchise consultants are paid by the franchisors so there isn’t a cost to the entrepreneur. They build their dream career by helping others achieve their dreams of franchise ownership.
According to Patrick Laforet, a well-known international franchise recruitment specialist, “The more you listen and observe, the clearer the situation. The clearer the situation, the better your planning. And the better your planning, the better your results.” As Certified Franchise Consultants, we do just that for our clients, listen, observe, plan and produce results that create franchise entrepreneurs all over the world – every single day.
With over 4,000 franchise opportunities in dozens of main categories and hundreds of sub categories from brick-n-mortar to home based, employees or no employees, hands on or hands off, main source of income or ancillary income investment, essential or non-essential, among many other choices that surround the franchise community, there’s no wonder why franchise consulting is in high demand.
Everyday someone around the world realizes they too can be an entrepreneur through franchising and it all started by working and trusting in their certified franchise consultant! If you’re a listener, problem solver, conversationalist, and enjoy helping others, perhaps franchise consulting is for you.
