A mind blowing introduction to the franchise industry. This course will review and refute best and worst practices, frame your franchise cornerstones, and shine much needed light on all the things no one ever tells you.  


There are various ways to structure your franchise business and that is business for an attorney to advise. What we do here instead is present the underlying reasons unique to franchising that require so much thought in restructuring your business to allow for franchising it. 


If you've come this far, you've probably already heard of a Franchise Disclosure Document. The FDD is the quintessential document for all franchise companies because its not just a legal document but in many ways a #1 sales tool as well.  Fun w/ FDDs reviews a host of real life FDD's and parses out the best and not so best in each while feeding you strategies on how you might want to build your own FDD. 


Franchising isn't just expensive. It's damn near deadly. 30% of Franchises that publish and FDD never get off the ground and most often its because they exhaust their capital. This course will not only focus on average investments in franchising anticipated expenses for all lines of a franchise P&L. Be prepared to plan out your capital strategy BECAUSE YOU WILL NEED ONE.


The #1 cited completed item by aspiring franchisors before they jump into franchising is that they have standards and ops documents in place. Unfortunately only about 25% of them have these documents in a manner necessary for franchising. Ops n Docs will dive into some of the best and worst Ops manuals and training programs while building a template for you.


Who do you have and who will you bring with you? This course will thoroughly examine what roles you need, who will fill them, where to find them, and how to craft a growth plan for your organization as there's only universal truth in franchising. YOU CAN'T DO IT ALONE!

The tool that made us who we are and could make you the franchisor you're destined to be. It could also point you toward hitting pause for now and that's ok... that means saving potentially hundreds of thousands of dollars! 

As with most any consulting engagement, the rate for this service is based on myriad factors, including length, frequency, and frankly, degree of difficulty.  We offer both monthly and retainage based proposals. We will include a proposal in our RYG summary upon request.

DID YOU KNOW? Franchise industry development services (marketing, legal, sales, accounting, etc.) are often 3x-10x the cost of same services outside the industry because service providers target large franchise systems with large franchise budgets.


I'm so glad I took the RYG assessment. It showed me everything I wasn't willing to look at with my business and that would have completely impeded my ability to franchise. I've decided not to franchise (at least at this time) and I thank Chris @ Franchise Ready for saving me time, money, and heartache I wasn't ready to invest.  Stan - PC Devo

There's no one I trust more to review and advise small businesses on the cusp of franchising than Franchise Ready. And I love that they don't necessarily advise long term. It eliminates the conflict of taking on a client for the revenue. Their business is assessments and they stay true to that. But help in so many other ways too! - Hilary Dolby - Fractional CFO / FR Top Collaborator. 

As someone who is very immersed into franchising, I get a lot of people asking about whether they should franchise their business. I automatically send them to Franchise Ready as a source I trust to help them ensure they have clarity about what they need to do and then how to do it! - Angela Cote @ ACinc. 

Well worth the money for what I learned about myself and my business. Yes I have a successful business. No, I am not ready to franchise. Yes, I can put the pieces in place to change that. Franchise Ready and their RYG assessment was enlightening. I'm pretty sure I saved hundreds of thousands of dollars and have a clear path forward. Dan C. @ Mosquito Tick Away

When we started franchising our original business, we did not have a tool to help us determine our readiness, and therefore we had to slow down our focus on growth and few times to address these gaps. It's a lot easier to build out systems for things before you have franchisees, so you can keep happy franchisees and a steady growth trajectory. Working with Franchise Ready will help you identify your roadmap to success - Jen Cutillo @ Zorward Consulting
