South Carolina Supports Its Businesses

CNBC gives high ratings to South Carolina’s workforce, cost of doing business, and economy, while US News & World Report notes its thriving economy and fiscal stability. Of all the US states, South Carolina has the fifth highest in-migration. The growing population supports businesses in many different industries.

A major driver of South Carolina’s success in attracting new residents and businesses is its incentive system. A strong believer in the power of business incentives to bolster its economy, South Carolina has a wide variety of tax exemptions, reductions, and credits in place. Its 5% corporate income tax is one of the lowest in the region.

Tourism is a large part of the South Carolina economy, bringing in over $21 billion a year and supporting 10% of South Carolina jobs.

South Carolina is a beautiful state with plenty of support for starting and growing a business. FranNet’s experts know the Palmetto State well, and they’re ready to help you choose a business that will thrive in South Carolina.

How Do Franchise Consultants Reduce Risk?2018-12-28T13:35:12+00:00

FranNet Consultants helps save you time and money in several ways: by educating you about franchising; by helping you research your business; by identifying the right structure and strategic mix of the businesses you are interested in; and by introducing you to the franchisors that fit your model. Instead of going from place to place, you can get all of this information in one place. This saves you time and money.

We’ll encourage you to thoroughly research any franchise that you are investigating, and we’ll even help you find franchise attorneys and other advisors so you can gain more information before you buy. We believe that the more you know, the better the odds are that the choice you make will be a good one. As a result, we stress that you spend the necessary time to research before you buy. Once you’ve bought the business, it’s too late to change your mind.

  • Readiness Assessment

    Take our free proprietary Readiness Assessment to evaluate your business owner profile, including a personality analysis and an investment range determination. From here, our algorithm can help determine what franchise options in your local market may be best able to meet your goals.

  • Assessment Review

    Once you have your Franchise Readiness Assessment results, you may request a free no obligation review session with your local franchise consultant. During this meeting, you can gain more insight into what franchise opportunities may be best for your goals.

  • Franchise Options

    After the review of your Readiness Assessment, we work with you to determine what local options may be worth exploring. Your local consultant will present you with a number of options and depending on which ones you are interested in, your consultant will make an introduction.

  • Speak With Franchise Companies

    We will help facilitate those introductions and coach you on the due diligence process, providing guidance on questions to ask, how to understand Franchise Disclosure Documents, and tools on how to rank the franchise opportunities for yourself.

  • Speak With Local Franchise Owners

    Once you've learned more about each franchise opportunity that you are interested in, you will be able to speak with active franchisee's in their respective organizations in order to validate the business, support, and success of each.

  • Discovery Day

    Prior to making a formal commitment to a franchise opportunity, you will attend a Discovery Day, usually on-site at the corporate headquarters of the specific franchise you're interested in. This Discovery Day is a great opportunity for you to meet the top management team, see their operational facility and learn more about the day-to-day life of owning a business under their brand.

  • Decision Time

    Once you return from a discovery day, you'll be in a position to decide if that franchise is the right fit for you. If it is, we'll provide the necessary referrals to franchise attorneys, accountants, and funding partners to help complete your franchise due diligence. From there, it is your choice to sign the final franchise agreement and become a franchisee.

5. Franchise Validations

Once you've learned more about each franchise opportunity that you are interested in, you will be able to speak with active franchisee's in their respective organizations in order to validate the business, support, and success of each.
