This is where FranNet of Atlanta comes in. We work to understand you first to then pinpoint the specific franchises opportunities
that best fulfill your lifestyle and financial goals, career aspirations, and leverage your skills and talents.
STEP 1: Evaluate Your Needs
It starts with a conversation. One of our team members will contact you for a brief introductory conversation, we want to learn a little bit about your current situation and what information you are seeking at this time. From there, we will help guide you as to your logical next steps. We may suggest attending one of our educational events or to view our online Straight Talk About Franchising Video series.
If you are ready, we will likely ask you to complete a Personal Franchise Assessment and schedule a time to meet face-to-face with one of our local consultants.
STEP 2: Develop Your Search Strategy
Working through the decision to go into business for yourself is a big step and deserves attention in a private and professional
environment. We encourage you to meet with us face-to-face to review your Personal Franchise Assessment and take a
more in depth look at your goals.
The business model we formulate throughout this consultation will be uniquely yours and clearly articulates the goals and
preferences you determine to be critical in choosing a franchise opportunity. We take into consideration your preferred
geography, your family situation, your desired role in the business, your comfort level for financing and and your
timeline. Once you are satisfied that we have identified your model correctly, we'll be ready to pinpoint the businesses
that structurally and strategically match your model.
