Franchising Basics

Franchise consulting is a type of professional assistance that can give you a leg up on starting your business. This type of consulting helps potential entrepreneurs learn about the businesses that interest them and choose which ones are most suited to their needs, availability, budget and talents. Often, consulting can mean the difference between a risky investment and one that is thought out enough to be closer to a sure thing. Often, consultants offer their services free of charge for potential buyers.

Franchise consultants play important roles in bringing potential buyers/investors and franchisors together. They often provide matchmaking services, screening potential buyers and matching them up with business opportunities. They are typically able to offer their services for free because they charge the franchisors for the services they provide to them.
