Franchise Registry Memberships

Securing financing for franchisees is frequently a significant stumbling block to growth.  Through close relationships with over 8,800 industry lenders in the Franchise Registry and a deep understanding of underwriting criteria, we help make the borrowing process more efficient.

Benchmarking/Competitive Assessments

One of the most valuable services we can provide is the ability for a franchise to benchmark its performance against its peers – that is, if it even know who its peers are. With information about every active franchise operating in the U.S., we can help you discover the systems that are your closest rivals, and give you a complete picture of how you stack up against them.

By understanding their competitors and benchmarking against both their progress and offerings, franchisors can identify areas where they can get ahead.
