The IFPG 4 Step Matching Process
Step 1. Information Gathering
Most ventures–business or personal–are more successful when the right questions are asked before they are launched. During your Information Gathering stage you’ll discuss your goals, your funding options, your previous experience, and your personal and business preferences. Everyone is different and you owe it to yourself to talk to someone who has been professionally trained to ask questions and then actually listen to your answers. The goal of Step 1 is to gather enough information to allow us to move on to……
Step 2. Researching Your Options
After we’ve discussed what you’d like to accomplish and what you have to work with, we’ll begin researching and speaking with Franchisors on your behalf. As a trained Franchise Professional, we have resources, tools, and experience that will help streamline the process. Once we have 2 to 4 Franchises that we feel meet your criteria, we’ll move on to Step 3.
Step 3. Discussing Your Potential Future Business
Most of our Clients really enjoy Step 3. During this step you’ll hear about the Franchises that may be a good fit for you. You’ll spend time with us discussing the attributes of these franchise models and why we think that you should research them further. We’ll revisit your goals and discuss how these Franchises have the potential to meet them.
Step 4. Speaking with Your Future Franchise Partner–The Franchisor
Once we have identified the Franchises that, well, you’re excited about and feel that are potentially “good fits” for you, we’ll set up a time for you to speak with them directly. This too is an exciting step in the process as you’ll be hearing about these Franchisor business models, the daily activities of their Franchisees, what it takes to get started, and what it takes to grow your new business.
