There are several types of individuals/organizations that can be referred to as "broker". Even those that only work in franchising provide different levels of service. Some provide leads, some provide pre-screened candidates, and others become your in-house franchsie sales solutions. Business brokers that "do the occassional franchise deal" are generally speaking, a bad way to go. Franchising is such a specialty that many do not understand. Additionally a business broker wants to sell your offering and is not all that concerned about best fit with your long brand integrity in mind. Franchising is an area of expertise for me. If you need more help feel free to contact me at dean_afs@yahoo.com. FYI; I like your concepts look. Good luck!

Kim,

I would recommend that you might want to start by speaking to a business consultant first. There are many nuances to franchises. There are also other options to opening more stores without creating a franchise. You want to figure out which might work best for your particular business. If a franchise is the way to go, then you first want to make sure you have a complete system in place before creating the franchise. Once that's done, I would shop around. See what different brokers and/or franchise experts can offer you. Remember, the more exposure you can get, the better it is. If you have a good solid business model that's working, advertising locally might help as well. People who have seen the business model at work and believe in it will always invest before those who haven't.

Hope this helps. If you need any other advice, please feel free to contact me at : fayersolutions@gmail.com

Typically franchise brokers are not a good choice.

They don't understand the business.
They don't know franchise law
They generally don't read or understand the FDD.
They only do limited applicant pre-qualification.
They are only a referral service but demand a substantial fee. You must work the deals.
