Ready To Talk About Franchising Your Existing Business?

Do you have an existing business and ever wondered if it would make a good franchise? Now ION Franchising can help you determine if franchising your business makes sense.

Franchise Assessment Study

While franchising is a dynamic way for expansion, not all great businesses make good franchise opportunities. So, it all starts with an Assessment Study; an in-depth consultation and study of your business will be conducted to determine if it is “franchise-able.”

If the findings indicate the business is not yet ready to be franchised, you’ll be provided a comprehensive report outlining the reasons why and be offered suggestions to help you get to your goal. If the Assessment Study determines the business has strong potential to become a thriving franchise, you’ll be invited to move to the next step. Services include a step-by-step process to take your existing business through the franchising procedure including everything you will need; the creation of franchise disclosure documents, development of operations manual, state of the art legal advice, support for state registrations, and critical sales & marketing services.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who is ION Franchising?

ION Franchising is a franchise consulting firm located in Las Vegas, Nevada. Our firm has extensive knowledge and resources about the franchise industry allowing us to offer our clients an inside look at hundreds of different franchise opportunities.

Why would someone use a franchise consultant?

A professional franchise consultant can offer candidates a wealth of general and inside information about the franchise industry as well as about specific franchise industries and opportunities. ION Franchising helps save our clients time by assisting with much of the initial legwork required in identifying rock solid opportunities that meet your criteria and are available in your desired market.

Why are your services free?

The truth is our services are not free - they are just free to you, the franchise seeker. ION Franchising is paid by the franchises we represent to assist them in the development and growth of their business.

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 both parties feel there is strong potential for success does anyone begin to consider investing in the franchise. "Selling" a franchise to a less than ideal candidate is generally a recipe for failure for both franchisee and franchisor. Aggressive sales techniques is not how winning franchisors are built.

Which franchises does ION Franchising represent?

ION Franchising currently works with over 500 of today's top franchise opportunities from dozens of different industries.

Do I pay more for a franchise if I use a ION Franchising franchise consultant?

Absolutely not. In single unit franchising fee negotiation is very rare. Most everyone pays the same franchise fee regardless of how they are introduced to the franchisor. In area development and master franchise deals we can often assist our clients with negotiations saving them thousands of dollars on initial fees.

What is it like working with a ION Franchising consultant?

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 select 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.
