QLD Breakfast 15/05/2012

Franchisee Recruitment

How does reaching critical mass affect your franchisee recruitment process?

What are the differences of recruiting franchisees prior to and post critical mass?

Join us for breakfast at Queensland Cricketers' Club and hear from a panel representing leading franchise systems who will share their strategies for successfully attracting, recruiting and retaining the right franchisees for their business.
Philip Ciniglio (Market Minds, Franchise Business Consultant) will facilitate a panel of leading franchise systems that cut across service and retail concepts and that are in both growth phases and post critical mass.

Philip will probe the panel and find the good, the bad and the ugly by asking questions such as:

  • How difficult is franchisee recruitment in the early years of growth?
  • Where did you get your leads from?
  • How heavy was your reliance upon receiving the initial franchise fee?
  • Did you find selling franchises was a dichotomy when trying to be selective for the right people?
  • How did you maximise your growth and minimise your risk?
  • How did you align potential franchisees' expectations in earnings, workload, support, compliance etc?
  • Do you use profiling software to help you determine the right franchisee?
  • What were the effects of recruitment as your brand became better known?
  • What are the key points to successful recruitment?
