Our level of industry relationships, experience, expertise, and success is unmatched.
Everything we do is provided at no cost to you. At FBC, we are compensated by our brand partners and no cost will ever be passed to our clients in any form.
Using the framework we develop together as well as the top opportunities we see resonating with those of similar backgrounds, we then work with the franchisors on market availability. Once the assortment of opportunities has made it through these filters, we then present them to you to narrow down further.
The franchisors will then walk you through items such as their brand overview, marketing and support systems, unit economics, franchise disclosure document, and territory definition.
We call this step “validation” because it’s your chance to speak with existing owners of the franchise brands you selected. You can hear about their experiences with no filter.
You will be invited to spend 1-2 days with the franchisor and their full support team on-site to ensure that this opportunity – and this partnership – is right for you.
Within a week or two of Discovery Day, assuming all goes well, you will be extended the opportunity to join the franchise system.
