What do we do?

Our range of services is broad and covers virtually all aspects of franchising. If your company is looking to launch a franchise system - get in touch with us. We will check whether it will be sensible and profitable. We will indicate the most effective form of developing a franchise system, prepare financial analyses, an operations manual and a franchise agreement. We will conduct a recruitment campaign to attract franchisees and promote your franchise offer. What's more - you can outsource the comprehensive management of your franchise network to us - so you don't need to create a new department within your structures.

If you already have a franchise system in place, you can have us audit it. If there is room for improvement, we will do it.

Or maybe you are an entrepreneur who is wondering whether to buy a franchise licence, whether a franchise agreement is beneficial and whether it will pay off for you? Come in for a consultation - we will advise you. Sincerely, honestly and professionally.
