Be in Business for Yourself—Not By Yourself

FranNet has been introducing entrepreneurs and business professionals to the top franchises for over 30 years. It’s because we have a strong reputation of integrity and leadership in the franchise consulting industry that we have continued to grow serving the needs of our clients.

As a recognized leader in franchise consulting, FranNet has partnered with national and local agencies including SCORE and America’s SBDC, the national association of Small Business Development Centers (SBDC), to provide education and training. We’ve also led the industry by developing a Client Bill of Rights that documents the standards we set for our clients. Our Broker Disclosure Document makes our working relationship transparent. So, you’ll know what to expect from the very beginning.

And since our services are free to you, you can be assured that we’ll only introduce you to the franchisors that make the most sense for you. We do most of the work so you don’t have to:

  • Carefully Selected Franchisors - Our franchisor development team carefully selects the franchisors we align with. We will only introduce our clients to those franchisors that provide the greatest opportunity for success, given an understanding of a clients goals and background, as well as knowledge of the local market.


  • Proprietary Process - Your FranNet consultant will begin the discovery process getting to know you, our client. First and foremost our approach is to ensure your success as a business owner and introduce you to the right opportunities. Our proprietary Personal Franchise Assessment was developed to get a deep understanding of your values, competencies, leadership style and sales orientation, and other personal characteristics that are unique to you.


  • We Put Your Needs first -  We are trained, active listeners so we can understand your lifestyle, professional and financial goals to help you make a well-informed decision that best fits your needs. We are on the journey with you every step of the way in selecting a franchise opportunity that is right for you.


  • Semi-Absentee Ownership – As an entrepreneur you may be building a portfolio of wealth streams. We have franchising options that allow you to focus on your primary business with business opportuntities for semi-absentee owership.

FranNet Consultants are local and live in your community so we are able to fully understand your market and opportuntiies. And we’ve written the book on business ownership. Download this free ebook that provides a roadmap to business ownership.
