Franchise Consultant Job Description

Franchise Consultant jobs and Franchise Broker jobs can be both lucrative and rewarding because they offer unlimited potential in a booming industry. They also offer a chance to truly make a difference. As part of the consultant job description, your goal is to guide candidates with virtue and integrity. You will educate your candidate and help him determine if franchise ownership is the right path. If it is, you will work with your candidate to find franchise opportunities that would best suit his interests, skills, lifestyle and budget.

Franchise Consultant Skills

The most important skills needed for successful Franchise Consultant careers are intangible. For Franchise Consultant jobs, it’s essential to be a good listener. Part of the franchise consultant job description requires you must listen to your candidate carefully to fully understand his goals and desires for his next step. The consultant job description also requires the initiative to do the research, networking and relationship building necessary to fulfill all of the franchise business consultant duties. For example, to gain the knowledge to best serve candidates, Franchise Consultants should take the initiative to meet with franchisors (by phone, Zoom, or in person) and take advantage of the learning opportunities offered by their franchise broker organization. A typical Franchise Consultant profile is a people-person who is friendly and outgoing, is a strong communicator and is organized. You could compare a franchise consultant’s job description to a matchmaker’s. But instead of finding a match for potential life partners or a husband and wife, you will find the perfect match between business partners, or the franchisor and the franchisee.

What Does a Consultant Do? 

What does a consultant do? Part of the Franchise Consultant description is to manage a candidate’s expectations and provide objective information. Your role as a consultant doesn’t stop once the franchise is selected.

You can also help the process along by introducing candidates to lawyers and lenders using IFPG’s Vendor Directory.
