Restaurant Franchise Development

If you own a successful food service operation and are ready to grow via franchising, we are your one-stop-shop for everything you'll need. A well structured franchise allows you to enjoy rapid unit and sales expansion, national brand recognition and maximization of your own financial opportunities. 


Before you can sell a franchise, there’s a lot of work that needs to be done in order to comply with Federal Trade Commission regulations and to properly support your franchisees. In fact, as a soon-to-be franchisor, your #1 priority will be to have happy, profitable and successful franchisees.


Is franchising appropriate for your business? We determine this with an on-site, one-week meeting with you at your business. During this week, we conduct a Franchise Operations Analysis™ of your business. This is to determine if your business is ready to franchise….and what needs to be done before you can. At the end of this week, you will have a solid working knowledge of what it will take to get your franchise ready, a 20-page report on the status of your business, and a game plan to move forward with if you decide to launch your franchise. This is a low-cost, no-commitment way to get professionally informed about where you’re at, what it will cost, and the step-by-step process. 


Then, if you're ready to move forward, we can assist you start to finish in the creation of your franchise. We charge a small weekly fee over an extended period of time for our services, so the large financial burden that commonly accompanies franchise development is substantially eliminated. 


Our system of restaurant franchise development is divided into four categories detailed below:


1. Corporate matters including: creation of your franchise company, setting up your accounting system, banking, logo/federal registration, trade name and many others. We walk you through the entire process from start to finish. 


2. FTC compliance including: Creation of your Franchise Agreement, the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) and insuring that these documents mirror how you want your franchise to operate. Yes, there are legal costs involved for the creation of these documents that you pay directly to the law firm. We work closely with your attorney representing your interests to make sure the agreements are properly constructed for your specific type of restaurant operation, including franchise territories, fees, royalties, and expectations of all parties. 


3. Supporting documents and creation of a functional franchise system including: Complete operating systems, franchise operations documents, web site development, employee manuals and documentation, recipes, resource materials for your franchisees, new store opening documents, discovery day agenda for prospective franchisees, complete franchisee training materials and more. You’ve probably heard that a franchise operations manual is 300+ pages in length. Our proprietary system of creating your franchise system substantially eliminates this overwhelming manual with a more efficient and user-friendly way of efficient document management.


4. Launch of your franchise opportunity: Once everything is done, it’s time to go live! This includes media releases to television, radio and printed publications and ongoing support of your franchise.


Check out our recent launch of the Toasted Owl Cafe' franchise in Flagstaff, Arizona. Owner Cecily Maniaci says, "Over the years, we have received hundreds of requests from guests and Arizona business owners to franchise and open locations just like the ones in Flagstaff, and I’m glad to say that we’re now ready.” She intends to open 34 franchise locations throughout Arizona and then expand into New Mexico, Utah, Nevada, and Colorado and nearby states. “It’s vitally important that we properly train, support and guide our new independent business owners to make sure that they are as successful as we have been here in Flagstaff. Our new franchise has been perfectly designed to handle that by Kevin Moll and his team at Restaurant Consulting Services, Inc. in Denver. They created all of our training materials and designed our entire franchise system to be bulletproof for our new franchisees. They’re wonderful to work with and have supported and coached me step by step in the development of this exciting, first-to-market concept that’s unique to the restaurant industry.”
