What is a FranNet Franchisee?
A FranNet franchisee, commonly called a FranNet consultant, is a local business expert who works with individuals interested in business ownership identify their skillset, personal and business goals, budget and ideals, and uniquely matches those traits with a franchise business seeking that specific type of franchisee candidate.

FranNet consultants utilize a proprietary Personal Franchise Assessment (PFA), a sort of personality test of one’s business acumen, to assess an individual from many facets, including focusing on their behavior profile, risk tolerance and financial background.  These attributes are combined with what the company has learned in the marketplace over the 25-plus years we’ve been in business to ideally match the person to a franchise concept.

FranNet’s services are free.  How does a FranNet consultant receive compensation?
FranNet has relationships with some of the best franchise companies in the world that are looking for highly qualified franchisee candidates.  If through our research and profiling process, we present a candidate to the franchise company and that person invests into the franchise, the franchisor pays FranNet a fee. As a result, the consultant is paid a percentage of that fee. 

Think of us like an executive recruiter helping to match individuals to franchisors looking for their specific skill sets.  It doesn’t cost our clients any more or any less than if they did all the research on their own, found all the resources on their own, and ultimately went straight to the franchisor.  However, we arm our clients with information and educate them on understanding themselves first, then understanding which concepts perfectly match their profile.
