How the research process works

Step 1: Identify Franchising Companies in the Industry
Our research process for each industry starts by identifying companies that offer franchises in the recognized industry listings and associations such as Franchimp and the IFA (International Franchise Association). We carefully examine these platforms to compile a list of potential franchisors in the specific industry. This step ensures we have a comprehensive overview of the franchise landscape, allowing us to provide our clients with a diverse range of opportunities.

Step 2: Validate the franchise offers using the most updated Franchise Disclosure Document and The Small Business Administration Franchise Directory.
Our next step involves validating the franchise offers using the most updated Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD) version. We also utilize resources like the Small Business Administration (SBA) to track the performance of franchises, including loan default rates and success rates.

Step 3: Confirm the franchising details and reputation
For each franchise we intend to feature on our industry pages, we confirm the franchising details by cross-checking with the official websites or sources of the respective brands. We evaluate the franchises’ online reputation, looking at customer reviews and news articles, and assess how the brand is perceived by the public and its overall reputation in the market. This step is crucial for maintaining the accuracy and relevance of the information we provide. We conduct this verification process every six months to offer our clients up-to-date franchise information.

Step 4: Low Investment Categorization: Review and sort companies by the lowest initial investment 
In this step, we review and categorize companies based on their minimum investment fee, focusing on identifying low-investment franchising opportunities. By carefully analyzing the financial requirements of each franchise, we create a sorted list highlighting the most affordable options for potential franchisees. This categorization allows our clients to easily find franchises that align with their budget constraints, facilitating a more targeted and efficient search process.

Step 5: High Market Demand Categorization: Consult with franchise experts with more than 10 years of experience
Our franchise agents consult with professionals with more than 10 years of experience to guide us and help highlight the companies with the highest market demand.

Step 6: Strong Brand Recognition Categorization: Fact check the franchising history of the companies from official sources.
By conducting manual research, we identify the companies that have succeeded in franchising and have the most franchising units.
