Expansion through master licensing can propel your brand into the brand hall of fame. Unless this is handled correctly, however, it can damage your bank balance and your reputation. We have the knowledge and the international connections to enhance your chances of success by a significant margin.
Franchising is ideally suited for the implementation of BEE initiatives that are cost-effective and sustainable. Eric Parker developed the “Tandem Franchising” concept to enable BEE ownership in capital intensive franchises.
We have developed an Advanced Franchise Training course for Franchisor staff as well as Basic Business Training for Franchisor staff and new Franchisees. To view all our training courses and the next training dates, click here.
We have extensive experience in site selection and developing realistic expansion plans for franchises. In suitable circumstances, we also offer clients access to a GIS (geographic information system) package that pinpoints ideal locations for various types of businesses with laser-like precision. The GIS assessments are in association with Fernridge Consulting.
Franchisee Satisfaction Surveys
Surveys are one of the best methods to determine the current status of a franchise network. Franchising Plus customise each survey to meet the needs of the client in order to determine the current franchisee relationship climate within the group.
The Franchise System Audit
The franchise Systems Audit was developed by Franchising Plus as a management tool for established Franchisors. It is a review of an existing franchise to assess the adequacy of its internal processes, strategy and operation. This includes comprehensive feedback on how the franchise compares with others in the same industry and the best practice benchmark. It also includes an assessment of what franchisees deem to be important in the franchise support system as well as the level of satisfaction with the Franchisor delivery of support services.
Scientific Franchisee selection: The E-test
The e-test was developed as a scientific tool for improved franchisee selection. It is a psychometric test that focuses on the core competencies required to be a successful franchisee. The Franchisor receives a detailed report of each applicant, which identifies their compatibility with the franchisee profile as well as areas for development through training. Franchisees also receive feedback on their results from a psychologist.
HerdingCats: Franchise Network and Operations Management and Communication Platform
We developed HerdingCats as a solution to more effectively manage a franchise network. The objective is to give franchisors the tools to help franchisees work within the systems, understand the brand and collaborate to build better businesses. Effectively managing a large franchise is hard work. When a franchise network is small, things start out simple and easy to manage. But as the network expands, management quickly becomes more complicated. HerdingCats is an operations management and communication network platform that allows franchises to compete, grow and prosper in an accelerating world.
