What is it like working with a Franchise Select Group
Our approach to this business is very simple and straight forward.
Our consultants will conduct an initial interview to gain
insight to your previous experiences, goals, strengths, weaknesses,
investment range, target market and more. We will then work to
ideal franchises for you and assist you in researching the opportunity.
When our clients are ready to take a serious look at a franchise
we will facilitate the introduction then remain by your side throughout
the remainder of the process.
Are there aggressive sales tactics used in this business?
NO! Franchising is not a sales business - it's a mutual discovery
process. Good franchises are not sold - they are awarded. Only when

for failure for both franchisee and franchisor. Aggressive sales
techniques is not how winning franchisors are built.
