What is a Franchise Consultant?

Sometimes it’s nice to pick up the phone or send an email to someone who understands what you’re going through. When venturing into starting a franchise, a Franchise Consultant is your new best friend. A Franchise Consultant aids you in identifying and selecting franchises that suit both your budget and business needs. Then, once you’ve found the business you want to franchise, they help you seek funding to make your vision a reality. Once funding is secured, the real fun begins — growing the business! Serving as a mentor, a Franchise Consultant will stay with you through every step of the process to ensure your business takes off.

How Can a Franchise Consultant Help Me?

Think about all the steps that go into starting a franchise. All the administrative, marketing, finance, operations, business, legal, and other strategic planning that goes into just starting the business. Then you must grow it. Although the initial idea sounds fantastic, once you dive into the nitty gritty, it can be overwhelming to handle by yourself. That’s why a Franchise Consultant is there to hold your hand and make sure you make every decision, understanding every step that comes after. Franchise Consultants can help steer you to craft the most efficient business plan, provide financial assistance, and recommend best practices that set you up for long-term success.

What Qualifications Should a Franchise Consultant Have?

Although practically anyone can provide advice, it’s recommended to find a professional franchise consultant with proper credentialing and licensing so you know they are qualified to assist you and your business in the best way possible. Some important credentials to look for are:

  • Certified Franchise Executive (CFE).
  • Certified Franchise Consultant (CFC).
  • Franchisee Advisory Council (FAC) member or leadership role.

Aside from these, memberships at highly reputable franchising organizations or groups, such as the International Franchise Professionals Group (IFPG), are significant prerequisites.
