Franchise Innovations For You, LLC was formed in response to an underserved market in the industry for high-level, advanced education and training on purchasing a franchise. This service is absolutely free to you, the Franchise Purchaser. The world of franchising has become so complex and intricate that many potential buyers of franchises do not know how to decipher the vast information they received about each franchise.
The options for purchasing a franchise are increasing exponentially, coupled with the amount of information available on each concept, there’s a great deal of data for franchise buyers to sift through. Franchise Innovations recognized that there was a real need to assist the franchise buyers, therefore, we provide advanced research tools, consultative services and due diligence assistance, but also help prospective franchisees qualify for the franchises they desired to invest in.
We have partnered with experts in the industry and created a company that is built on helping you achieve your dreams of business ownership. We make this process easy for you throughout the research and award process, but also know it is important to have ongoing training and continued education after the franchise has been awarded. Because of our relationships, we are able to provide you with a full package of consulting services and ongoing support and training.

Before you get started on your search for a franchise, it is important to examine your knowledge of franchising and what is most important to you when investing in a franchise. Have you thought about what it takes to go into business for yourself? Many people think that they can just buy a franchise and let someone else run it, although this can happen, more often than not passive ownership is not an immediate option.Franchising is much easier than starting something from scratch, but there is a learning curve. Running a business is a serious commitment; it takes determination, discipline and emotional strength. It takes patience and realistic expectations.
Franchising is not a get-rich-quick scheme. It’s a get rich faster, with a lot less risk, long-term plan. What are you buying with a franchise? Most people think they are buying a brand name. Of course, that is part of the package, but it is NOT the primary reason for purchasing a franchise. You are buying a system. You are buying someone else’s experience.
In your “perfect business”:
Ø What kind of business would you run?
Ø What kind of hours would you work?
Ø How much money do you want to make?
Ø What type of clientele would you have?
Ø How many employees do you want?
Ø What could you do that would make you feel amazing at the end of the day?
A good tip is to think about what you enjoy with your current company and also what you dislike. These are things that you’ll want to address, include or exclude from your business.
The award process can be quite stringent, but don’t worry, we have been through this process many times and know exactly how to help you every step of the way.
