1. Franchise Your Business Seminars and Webinar
Francorp offers a one day training class educating franchisors about the appropriate steps and marketing tools needed for a franchise to grow to the next level. Franchisors will learn about identifying the ideal type of buyer your franchise is looking for, building brand strength with internet marketing and understanding Google Analytics, creating a budget for advertising, developing a marketing plan, creating a web presence, understanding the tools of social media and how to shape them as a franchisor, and where and how to market your franchise in print, internet, and trade show advertising.
Want to know how franchising works? Want to know how it stacks up to other forms of expansion and what controls are in place to protect you? Attend a Franchise Your Business Seminar or Webinar, held in cities across the country. Conducted by a Francorp Senior Consultant, this seminar is designed to answer your questions and provide you with a better understanding of costs, time frames and working capital typically needed to grow through franchising.
2. The Francorp Tour
As business owners and executives examining franchising as an expansion strategy, you are encouraged to visit Francorp’s headquarters in Olympia Fields, Illinois, a Chicago suburb. Here, you are invited to tour through all of our departments, meet our staff and senior officers, and review the documents needed in effective franchise growth.
Your time spent with us will allow you to gain a detailed understanding of Francorp’s unique process and how this process fits your needs for expansion.
Is franchising right for your business? How long will it take to turn your business into a franchise? What kind of costs should you expect? These are just a few of the questions that are answered when you meet with a Senior Consultant.
The Francorp consultation is typically a face-to-face meeting that allows you the opportunity to obtain an impartial evaluation of your business and its readiness for franchising from a professional with strong business experience and exceptional expertise in franchising.

Franchise Development is our area of expertise. Whether you are developing a brand new franchise, reworking an existing one, or converting company-owned operations, Francorp has extensive experience across a wide variety of industries.
