Our expertise and perspectives on franchising are original and unmatched. We use objective data from every active franchise to help you make better decisions. Below are a just few of the ways we can help your franchise. Call us today to discuss your specific needs.

Directional guidance for navigating and predicting franchise growth

A strategic research project is tailored to answer the franchisor need for strategic direction– whether and where to franchise; pre-sell decisions for current franchisor owners; acquisition advisory for growth; general strategic issue research, and the like.

Whether its supporting franchisors through private equity meetings, global expansion, strategic planning or a period of market growth, we have the analytical solutions available to guide any franchise organization to achieve their highest level of performance.

Benchmarking/Competitive Assessments

Understanding and enforcing a strong competitive strategy is crucial in growing a strong brand. 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.

Performance Benchmarking provides franchisors with a better understanding of their performance by clarifying the underlying goals for an analysis, identifying appropriate performance outcomes and isolating peers to assess performance against. FRANdata collects the right information, conducts the analysis, and advises the franchisor on the implications.

  • System issues, such as unit economics, unit turnover, and franchisee engagement

International Development

FRANdata provides franchisors with extensive research and analysis on how to expand and improve their international reach by studying the viability of specific countries based on market research, growth modeling, and primary research gathering insights from other franchisors who have chosen the same path.

Franchise Financing/Capital Access

Securing financing for franchisees is frequently a significant stumbling block to growth.  Through close relationships with over 8,900 industry lenders via the Franchise Registry and a deep understanding of underwriting criteria, we help make the borrowing process more efficient and successful. Our franchise financing services ensure that franchise systems have access to capital in amounts and on terms appropriate for their credit risk profile. Verified Franchise Registry members attract more lenders and franchisees to allow for more and better loans.
