Franchise Consultant Job Description

As an IFPG Franchise Consultant, your goal is to guide candidates with virtue and integrity. You will educate your candidate and help him determine which franchise opportunities would best suit his interests, skills, lifestyle and budget.

Manage Candidate's Expectations

During the entire process, it is important to manage a candidate’s expectations and provide objective information. Your role as a Consultant doesn’t stop once the franchise is selected. At that point, you work as a guide to answer any questions that the candidate may have during the franchise discovery and research processes and give advice when appropriate. You can also help the process along by introducing candidates to lawyers and lenders using IFPG’s Vendor Directory.

Working with Franchisors

Franchisors love working with Franchise Brokers who stay involved throughout the process. So it is important to be engaged from introduction to close. It is also extremely rewarding to see a candidate’s dream of business ownership come to fruition.

Every Franchisor wants the best possible people as franchisees. After all, they represent the brand. That’s why the Franchise Consultant’s role is so important. Successful Franchise Consultants build strong relationships with Franchisors and understand the type of candidates they seek. Bringing a suitable, high-quality candidate to a Franchisor saves him time and aggravation and helps his business grow.
