The Scout Franchise Process

Step 1 – Making Contact

To kick off our process, we’ll make contact with you either by phone or email to learn more about your unique franchise requirements. 

During this initial consultation, we’ll dive into your objectives and goals, exploring what you’re looking for in a franchise opportunity.

This critical first meeting allows us to ensure that we’re the right fit for one another and establish a foundation for our partnership moving forward. 

With our expertise and your vision, we can work together to identify the ideal franchise opportunity for you and set you on the path to success as an entrepreneur.

Step 2 – Consultation

Once we’ve made contact and received all the pertinent information regarding your franchise desires and aspirations, we’ll schedule a follow-up meeting to discuss your specific requirements.

During this second consultation, we’ll delve into the specifics of what you’re looking for in a franchise.  We will take into account your experience and current financial situation. 

This information is critical and sets up our partnership to identify the best franchise opportunity to meet your unique needs and set you up for success.

Step 3 – Personal Assessment

After the initial consultation, we’ll assess your situation using our comprehensive ranking and selection criteria. 

From there, we’ll create a customized report outlining all the franchises that best fit your needs. 

This report will provide crucial information about the franchisor, investment requirements, and expected return on investment, giving you all the data necessary to make an informed decision.

We understand that choosing a franchise can be a daunting task due to the sheer number of options available. 

With access to over 350 franchises spanning a broad range of industries, our franchise selection services can save you an immense amount of time and effort in your search for the perfect franchise. 

Our ultimate goal is to help you find a franchise opportunity that aligns perfectly with your unique goals and aspirations.

Step 4 – We Help You Understand The Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)

A Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) is the key to understanding any franchise opportunity you decide upon. 

The FDD is a legal requirement that must be given to potential franchisees, making it an essential component of the pre-sale diligence process. It provides a wealth of information on what you can expect from your investment and protects both parties involved in the decision-making process.

We strongly recommend that our franchisees carefully review the FDD to gain a comprehensive understanding of their rights and the terms of the agreement. By taking the time to review this document thoroughly, you’ll have a better understanding of how the franchise operates and how it applies to your unique situation.

With our guidance, you’ll be able to understand the FDD with confidence, knowing that you’re making an investment that is fair and favorable for your interests.

Step 5 – Evaluating The Franchisor

Once you have reviewed the Franchise Disclosure Document, our knowledgeable and experienced team is ready to help evaluate the franchisor, ensuring they are a good match for your goals and objectives.

Our goal is for you to have all the necessary information at hand so that you can make an informed decision as franchise owners. 

It is crucial to understand all aspects of a franchisor’s business model before making a decision.

That’s why we take the time to fully evaluate the franchisor and make sure it’s the best fit for your franchise journey.

Step 6 – Legal And Financial Consultation

Before you make your final decision, we recommend you tap into an expert counsel so that you are aware of the risks and rewards of buying a franchise. 

Obtaining all the necessary information about franchising by contacting a franchise attorney and financial consultant can ensure that you make the right choice. 

It is important to remember the importance of this step in the process, as it can determine the success or failure of your venture. 

Step 7 – Attend a Discovery Day

The Discovery Day is a critical step in the franchise selection process.  A Discovery Day offers you the chance to meet and engage with the franchisor in person. Meeting with an actual franchise owner is essential to gaining a comprehensive understanding of the franchise’s business model, operations, and company culture.

A Discovery Day offers a unique chance to gain an insight into the franchisor’s business and brand, appreciate their enthusiasm for it, as well as get acquainted with the company’s plans for future development.  

This experience can also provide a better sense of how well the franchisor’s leadership style aligns with your own values and aspirations, helping to ensure that you’re making the best possible decision for your investment.

During the Discovery Day, you’ll have the opportunity to tour the franchisor’s facilities, meet the team, and speak with current franchisees about their experiences with the brand. The time you spend with the franchise is an invaluable opportunity to gather firsthand knowledge of the franchise’s day-to-day operations and understand how the franchisor provides support and resources to its franchisees.

The Discovery Day is a crucial step in the franchise selection process.  Not only does it provide the opportunity to learn more about the franchise, it can make or break the decision about whether or not to invest in the franchise.

Step 8 – Make An Informed Decision

It’s important to us that you buy a franchise that fits your business model. We’ll go over all of the pros and cons with you so when it comes time to buy, there will be no surprises!

By working with us as your franchise consultant, we will guide you through each step of the process outlined above. This process is important as it helps ensure that you are making the best decision for your needs.

Don’t miss out on this incredible opportunity – franchising can be a life-changing decision for entrepreneurs everywhere.
