Franchise Partnerships

Operational support for your franchisees to grow.

Give your franchisees the boost they need.

We are experts in small business development. We work with hundreds of owners each month to provide the tools, resources, and structure needed to grow and scale. Using those same concepts, we partner with you to help develop your franchisees to the next level.

Operational Partnership

As your operational partner, we help you drive a performance and growth-oriented culture. This is accomplished through…

Peer Development Meetings

Each month, your network joins our video platform for a microburst training and followed by a breakout session. After training, franchisees are broken into small groups for a peer-to-peer discussion to share better practices and work through business challenges. These peer-to-peer discussions force franchisees to think critically about the roadblocks in their business and help them to understand what levers need to be pulled to move the business forward.

Best Practice Reports

We record best practices from each PDM which can be leveraged for cross-training within the network. Internally we use this report to understand the needs of the network and build curriculums that address the key challenges holding owners back from explosive growth.

Roadmap Planning Meetings

As an outside voice, we help your franchisees build a 5-year growth plan. Members of your network can meet one-on-one with an advisor, at no cost, to break down a plan of attack and create a framework on how to achieve their initiatives.

Operational Strategy Sessions

We will set up touchpoints with your staff members to help strategize and connect on best practices for specific franchisees. Your Advisor will help bring findings and opportunities to the table for specific franchisees that our firm has worked with. This creates a true partnership designed to drive performance.

Additional Perks

As our operational partner, your network will have gain access to our arsenal of skill-training resources. We have over 90 whitepapers and toolkits on all of our core skills. Most of our resources include a tool or worksheet, to help you put the knowledge into action.

Every 45 days, our CEO puts on an interactive webinar. These dynamic skill sessions cover specific best practices in varied topics from recruitment to financials, all with one thing in common: engagement. The best part? You and your network will have access to all live webinars and past recordings.

As our partner, we’ll grant your network the ability to take the Predictive Index. This is a quick assessment that helps you outline key behavioral objectives that can dictate performance outputs. These tests are designed to help with internal communication and hiring top talent.

We assign the right advisor for your needs.

When you partner with us, we’ll match you with an advisor that fits the needs of your network. Our advisors are experts in scaling business. As previous owners, franchise support or VP of operations, all of our advisors have experienced and overcome the hurdles of scale. To ensure they continue adding value, our advisors go through continuous training and meet weekly with a team of peers to solve root problems for their clients.

Core Deep Dives

Our goal is to be a trusted extension of your team.

Additional Services

As an operational partner, you receive 30% off of these services…

1-on-1 Coaching for Support Staff

We bring in a Vice President who oversees our advisors into your organization to help skill up your operational team through 1-on-1 coaching.

Each staff member enrolled will experience an 8-month program focused on how to coach franchisees through a consistent meeting system. Our VP’s sit in on their live events once a month and have frequent checkpoints to support and hold tension on the individuals’ needed changes.

This provides the most value for staff:

  • Struggling to gain owners’ buy-in or engagement
  • Inexperienced in business advising but strong in technical skills
  • Lacking systems and structures to coach owners to next level
  • Looking to bring in outside perspective to help develop the team

Leveraged Solution for Best Practice Sharing

Similar to Peer Development Meetings, but designed to drive a set curriculum for a specific group of individuals working together consistently.

One of our advisors works with each group to ensure value. This service is custom for each group as we will use an assortment of virtual and in-person events. We have designed programs to be at the expense of the franchisor, franchisee as well as a co-op between both.

In Person 1-on-1 or Group Development Opportunities

If it’s a turnaround or providing more value to a legacy or lighthouse franchisee, we love the opportunity to get in the field and help bring a different perspective to your franchisees.

We not only work 1-on-1 with partners or owners, but we also encourage training events for the rest of the staff within the franchise network to help drive professional development. By skilling up the front line employees, you continue to drive growth with a strong quality output.

As your operational partner, we can also provide training events for your support staff to ensure they are becoming the best they can be as well.

Extension of your Team (as needed)

Sometimes you just need an extra hand. For the moments you wish you had an expert at your fingertips to help create or drive something within the franchisor or for a specific franchisee, we are here to help.

We will seek to understand the needs and desired objectives and present a plan of attack in a custom proposal. Unlike previous experiences when hiring from the outside, we are already a part of your network as a trusted partner. We have the needed insight to leverage our time and help you achieve your objectives quickly.
