Helpful Resources for Your Franchise Exploration Journey

When you’re investigating whether or not franchising is right for you, FranNet would like to be your primary resource. If you’ll allow it, we can act as the hub on your entrepreneurial wheel of knowledge, with spokes extending in many directions—all designed to provide you with free resources and avenues.
First and foremost, as a member organization of the nonprofit International Franchise Association (IFA), we’re keen to point out the list of resources available on their website. Divided into impactful subject matter, a cursory review of resource topics will both sharpen your knowledge and bring the art of franchising into clear focus. Here’s a sampling of their offerings:
Research Reports
Once a year, the IFA produces a Franchise Business Outlook (most recent is January 2018)
Specially prepared for the IFA (and IFA Foundation) by IHS Markit Economics, the findings provide the latest business and economic forecast for franchising at both a national and state level. Furthermore, the report contains what we’d refer to as industry-specific data.
Franchising World – the official magazine of the International Franchise Association, which publishes each month.
Roadmap to Success – Hey, not to toot our own horn, but—aw heck, we’re going to do it anyway. If you aren’t already aware, we have a booklet for you to read. It’s designed to kickstart your own entrepreneurial journey and it culminates in a meeting with a qualified FranNet representative who both lives and works in your area. Did we mention it was free? Download here.
More Than Just French Fries – FranNet’s free e-book is also an Amazon bestseller. What’s it about, you ask? Well, we found 15 different business thought leaders who were kind enough to share their own insights on what franchising success looks like. And in the end, it was more than just french fries.
The e-book is also loaded with expert insights from our very own FranNet business consultants, all of whom specialize in helping people to become their own boss. Download here.
