What is an Emerging Franchise? An emerging franchise is typically a newer concept with five or less years of experience and has few or no existing franchisees. The most successful franchises today began as an "emerging franchise." Like anything new, it is possible all the "kinks" have not been worked out and there may be some trial and error involved in these early stages of development. But...Why use "trial and error" to grow your franchise system when you can have someone who has already grown their franchise to hundreds of units help you in every step of the process? We at the IFPG have identified that newer franchise companies can be more successful growing their franchise system with expert guidance from other industry professionals that have already successfully built franchise systems. In addition, your franchise can be included in the IFPG portfolio for all 400+ IFPG Franchise Consultants to present to their clients.
