The You Network - Franchising For Serious Investors

Franchise Consultation

We're here to help YOU succeed in franchise ownership.

In all of our years of experience, we haven't found a single prospective franchise buyer that didn't want to succeed. Yet every time they use one of our "franchise consulting" competitors that are known to "short-cut" the process of finding or evaluating a franchise, they are risking their potential success. Call us “old school” if you like, but this bothers us.

You see, The YOU Network is a resource unlike any other found in franchising. Its consultant members are ONLY the most senior, qualified consultants in the industry – ALL of whom have owned their own business and can speak from both experience and the heart. They have all “been there, done that” and have now pledged to share their experience and knowledge with you – because they love their industry and want to see both it and any new owners that enter franchising continue to thrive – and not be misled by unprofessional resources.

Only The YOU Network "covers all of the bases" with you when you are investigating the field of franchising for you and your family’s future. Our field of expert consultants (each with 20+ or more years of industry experience) offer you, FREE of CHARGE:

  • Insight into your personal values and strengths as they relate to franchising, (using first-hand experience).
  • An Introduction to multiple franchise companies that match your needs and skills (and ONLY companies that have been pre-screened and passed our rigid performance criteria).
  • Expert Guidance and Education from beginning to end of your franchise evaluation.
  • Post-Franchise Purchase Assistance and leadership counsel.

In short, we are to franchising what 'buyer's agents' are to the world of real estate. But we’re not here to "sell you" – only to help you. We provide professional and ethical service every step of the way - and your franchise will cost you exactly the same as if you went directly to a franchise seller. Our fees are paid not by you but by the better franchisors who value the time we spend pre-qualifying potential buyers for their opportunity – saving you time, money and mistakes. And when you succeed, we succeed.

This book will help you conduct your due diligence and evaluate a franchise opportunity. You need to know what questions to ask during the franchise buying process. This book does not describe the steps of the buying process. Rather, it gives you the questions you should ask at each stage of the process.
