Why Should I Use A Franchise Consultant Instead Of Dealing With Franchise Companies Directly?
Quite simply, to save time, money and potential aggravation. Our service is free to you. Your franchise fees will not be greater if you choose to use our service. We provide the information a potential franchisee needs to find the opportunity that fits their goals, plus we already know many of the safest and most attractive opportunities in franchising, a task that can take months for someone outside the industry.

How Can FranChoice Offer Their Services For Free?
The consumer pays nothing for the services we offer at FranChoice. This is because we are paid fees by franchisors who respect the processes we follow and who recognize the quality and fit of candidates we refer to them after our consultations are complete. You pay exactly the same fees with any franchise company whether you work with FranChoice or not. FranChoice is able to provide a win-win scenario for both parties we work with.

Why do I need to complete a Confidential Questionnaire?
Our model has been designed to effectively qualify prospective franchise buyers in an organized and professional manner. The first step of that process is the completion of the Confidential Questionnaire. Once you have completed the form,your FranChoice consultant will schedule a consultation. Using your profile as a base point, you and your consultant will soon be focusing on finding the right franchise for you.
How Will FranChoice Help Find The Right Franchise For Me?
Our goal is to find a franchise opportunity that will meet the specific needs of each individual we work with. To do this effectively, we first have to learn what those needs are. We will ask you a series of detailed questions. Some sample questions you will be asked are:
- What are your reasons for wanting a business of your own?
- Have you ever owned a business of your own?
- What hours do you like to work?
- Where do you want your business to be located?
- How do you feel about managing people?
- How much capital do you have to start a business with?
- Will you have partners?
- Do you want to build multiple units?
- How soon do you want your business to open?
- Will you be involved on a full-time or part-time basis?
These are just a few of the many issues we will discuss with you over the course of our consultation process. With this information we can create a personalized profile and model for you to use in evaluating franchise opportunities. We can also usually match the people we work with to a few franchise opportunities that have characteristics consistent with the ones they're looking for in order to save time and effort in the process.
Sorting through many hundreds of franchise opportunities can be a long, confusing process. Many people spend months sorting through companies without ever finding an opportunity that has what they really want in a business. We can help!
We've done much of the homework for you. We have carefully pre-screened hundreds of companies from all areas of franchising. They include companies of all types including mall retail, shopping center retail, home based, fast food, other food, automotive, personal service, gift and business to business sales. We can't do your research for you. Only you can conduct a thorough and complete investigation of franchise opportunities to determine if one is right for you.
These companies must meet the exacting standards we have set to be included in our inventory. We examine the record of the franchisor relating to litigation, failures and, most importantly, the satisfaction of the existing franchisees with the people and opportunity they are involved in. We only want to work with the best. To learn more about the FRANCHOICE program, click here.
Am I under any obligation?
Neither you or FranChoice are under any obligation to continue the franchise research process if either party decides to discontinue for any reason.
Will My Personal or Financial Information Be Sold to Anyone?
The answer is no. The information you provide FranChoice is confidential and will only be seen by our consultants and any franchisor that you decide to pursue an investigation process with.
When Will You Send My Information To A Franchisor?
Only after you have requested and approved such a submission.
How long will the process take?
The FranChoice process is tailored to your needs and timeframe, since every individual has unique goals for business ownership.
