Successfully Franchising Your Business

If your business is a good fit to grow under the franchising model, our team of experts can help you navigate the complexities. Franchises are regulated by the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and several state regulations. FSBR is here for new and mature franchises to ensure they get the help they need to succeed.

Initial Franchising Consultation

The first step to start or expand your franchise is to set up a consultation. At this meeting, we’ll discuss your goals for starting or expanding your franchise. If you’re not sure if your business is right for a franchise arrangement, or you’re not sure exactly what this entails, you can get this and other important information at this meeting. We’ll also discuss your responsibilities as a franchisor, documents you’ll need, important statutes, and how the franchise system aligns with your goals and objectives.

What Does it Take to Franchise?

Franchising can be a very lucrative process, and it can help you expand your business substantially. However, there are several important factors to consider first. The franchise system should align with your business goals and objectives. You also must be prepared for the responsibilities of a franchisor.

To start a franchise, you’ll need to file franchise agreements and documents, as well as other documents protecting your brand, trademarks, and processes. With the right growth strategy, a franchise can help you expand quickly. We’ll work with you throughout this process to ensure that your business can expand efficiently, your documents are filed properly, and you’re protected from legal confusion or mishaps.
