Do you have questions about franchise sales in Fort Worth and Dallas? Consultant Anne Barr and the rest of the Venture Opportunities team are happy to answer any thoughts you may have about buying or selling a franchise. Below is a list of questions most commonly asked by our clients.
Why use a franchise consultant?
There are thousands of franchise opportunities available. A franchise consultant can help you narrow the field. They will look at your personality, skill set, and your personal goals and preferences to show you franchises that will be a good fit for you. Franchise consultants also help guide you through the research process of buying a franchise. And best of all…there is no charge for the franchise consultant services.
If I work with a franchise consultant, do I end up paying a higher franchise fee?
You will pay the same franchise fee regardless of the involvement of a franchise consultant.
If I go directly to the franchise, will they negotiate the franchise fee because I didn’t use a franchise consultant?
No. Franchise fees are not negotiable. They will not charge you a lower fee for going directly to the franchise.
How does a franchise consultant get paid?
Franchise consultants are paid by the franchisor to find qualified candidates for their opportunities. Consultants get paid much like a recruiter. When we find a good fit between a franchisor and a potential franchisee…it is a win-win situation for everyone!
Wouldn’t it be easier to look on the Internet and get a list of available franchises?
You can get lists of franchises off the Internet, but it can be overwhelming with all of the opportunities available. A franchise consultant can help narrow the field to only show you opportunities that will be a good fit for you and are available in your area of interest.
How much money do I need to buy a franchise?
Typically, you will need about $40,000 cash, and the rest can be financed.
