What Are The Benefits of Working with a Franchise Broker?

If you’ve ever dreamed of owning your own business and self-employment but don’t have the desire to create your own business from scratch, franchising might be for you. Franchise ownership is a rewarding experience, giving entrepreneurs the fulfillment of owning a business whose framework has already proven successful. From day one, you’ll have brand recognition and store policies so you can hit the ground running with the things that make owning your own business more enjoyable. Though this type of business can be incredibly rewarding, it does require dedication and passion for what you do.

Many entrepreneurs have varied interests, so it’s hard to decide what kind of business franchise to open. This is where Franchise Matchmakers comes in. Whether you are looking to buy a franchise in Colorado (our home base) or anywhere in the USA and Canada, our unique, experienced team or franchise professionals is here to set you up with a franchise that’s right for you. Here are just a few benefits of working with a franchise broker like us:

We Streamline the Process

Finding and committing to the right franchise can be a long and frustrating process without an experienced franchise broker. Though you may have an idea of the companies you’d like to work with, there is a chance that some won’t be available in your area. Hiring a broker allows you to pick and choose from options available in your area, so you know that your decision is available, reputable, and will work for you. So whether buying a franchise in Denver, Colorado, or elsewhere, we know what franchises are available where.

We’re Free

It’s no cost to you to use our franchise matchmaking services. Our funding comes entirely from the franchises we represent, so you don’t have to worry about expensive fees or hidden financial obligations. We’re simply here to help you buy the right franchise.

We’re Upfront About Financing

Because we’ve been working in this business for so long (more than 60 years combined experience, to be exact), we have the knowledge and capability of being upfront with you about potential franchise investments. We know how the franchise process goes, and we can work with you to find an option that fits your level of investment saving you a lot of time and uncertainty. Working directly with a franchise doesn’t give you the cost analysis and comparison capabilities that we offer.

We Can Help You Find Financing

In addition to helping you find a franchise that fits within your specific budget, we are able to help franchisees understand their financing options, and even refer our clients to lenders that can help them. These third-party lenders are experts in their field, because they work with franchisees every day. Some of the lending programs that are available to buying and financing a franchise include the following.

  • Unsecured lines of credit
  • Equipment leasing
  • Non-IRA investments
  • Funding from IRA/401k without taxes or early withdrawal penalties
  • Funding from private lending institutions
  • SBA guaranteed loans

At Franchise Matchmakers, we know that having the proper funding is one of the keys to your operations as you move forward. It is our goal to help you fully understand your financing options and do the networking for you so that you have the right lenders at your fingertips to get you started on the road to success.

We Ask Questions

Franchising is not an uncommon practice, but many new franchise owners don’t really know what a good franchise situation looks like. With our background, we can ask precisely the right questions to determine what kind of franchise business will be right for you. There are likely aspects of franchising that you haven’t considered. Working with us ensures that you’ve considered the situation thoroughly before you dive in.

There’s No Commitment

We have a wealth of knowledge regarding franchise markets, so you can freely ask us questions every step of the way. We’re here to walk you through all the confusing bits, but there’s no contract or obligation to continue if you decide to do something different. If you’ve ever considered franchising, contact Franchise Matchmakers. With us, you can have the utmost confidence in your franchising decisions and be well on your way to becoming a successful business owner. Don’t start the process alone. Call us today!
