Buying a Franchise
There may be no free lunch in life, but the Free Franchise Consultation will never cost you anything, adds great value to your search, and will give you the information that you need to control your franchise search, and by extension, your future. We often hear the following questions about our Free Consultations:
Q. Is the Consultation really free?
Yes, it really is free. We work with hundreds of Franchisors, Licensing and Business Opportunities and even existing businesses for sale. These businesses use our services to help find qualified and educated buyers. Just as employers pay “Head Hunters” or employee placements agencies for finding them the right candidates, these companies pay us directly for helping them find the right franchisees. While our services can be invaluable, you’ll never pay anything to us, or anything additional for taking advantage of our Free Consultationi.
Q. Doesn’t using your services add something to my start up expenses?
No, never. The Franchisors, Licensing and Business Opportunities that we work with understand that when we introduce a client to them, they’ve been educated about their offering. In short, they use our services to find qualified candidates who understand their business model and who have a strong understanding of their own skills.
Q. What if I don’t want to buy a Franchise or a business? Am I obligated to keep working with Sunbelt Business Brokers of Lafayette?
Of course not. If at any time, and for any reason, you realize that you aren’t ready to pursue your dream, simply tell us and we’ll wish you luck. Not everyone should own their own business, so if you–or we–discover that you may be better suited doing something else, the process can stop or simply be put on hold.
Q. Why can’t I simply contact the Franchises that I already know I like myself?
You can, but you may eventually find out (often after many hours of research and waiting for information) that the Franchises that you like may not be able to meet your goals, that is why receiving help from a trained professional can streamline your search. We have direct access to hundreds of opportunities that understand and appreciate that we help our clients become better educated about business ownership. In short, we can save you a lot of time and energy while getting you in front of the right people.
Q. How long will the Free Franchise Consultation take?
Everyone is a little different, but in general the initial call can take under an hour or in some cases may take 2 hours. In any case, there is never a fee and when completed, you’ll have a much better understanding of what contributes to a successful business venture.
