Becoming a franchisee is a big decision and should not be taken lightly. It’s always recommended that you get into your investment with help from an expert. At Vantage Franchises and More, we understand you don’t want just anybody to help you with your franchise investment. You want to work with the best franchise consulting company for you. If you’re not sure what to look for in a consulting company, we have a few things that you may want to consider.


Don’t trust your franchise opportunity to somebody who has their experience tied up in investing theories. You need a consultant who has legitimate experience getting their hands dirty with investment opportunities and understands that a certain amount of risk comes with every investment. Someone who has specific experience working with franchising is ideal as they can help walk you through the process of getting qualified for a franchise and going through their processes.

Has your best interests in mind

It’s not uncommon to work with a consultant who sees you as a job rather than a person looking to make a major financial commitment. Working with someone like this is risky because they’re not likely to account for your unique circumstances when giving their advice. Make sure you’re working with a consultant who you can tell truly wants to see you succeed and won’t drop you by the wayside as soon as you’ve finished their steps or graduated from their class.

Knows the franchise landscape

Getting into franchising requires a specific set of knowledge and skills unique to the field. For instance, you might find a consultant who’s well-versed in a specific part of the franchise field, which can be helpful because they’re likely to have connections within that industry. However, their knowledge and network might be limited in the area you prefer to invest in. If you happen to be unsure about the specific type of franchise you’d like to buy, they might not be able to provide you with enough information to make an informed decision.

Good listener

Being able to communicate well with your consultant is essential for you and your consultant to be successful and get you to a franchise that will be a good fit for you. While you might have a consultant who likes to talk at you rather than with you, it’s equally important that the consultant is a good listener. Communication is a two-way street, and they should be prepared to listen to your thoughts, ideas, and concerns about getting into a franchise.

Understands your risks

It’s always easy to spend someone else’s money. Sometimes you’ll find a consultant who’s eager to spend your money because they’re going to get paid whether you’re successful or not. Moreover, you might find that they’re willing to put you in situations with considerably more risk than what you’re conformable with. Don’t let your consultant talk you into a bad situation, as your risk is often much larger than theirs.
