Franchisee Recruitment


Overview

Franchisee recruitment support connects our clients with fully profiled, background checked, qualified and motivated franchise prospects. We understand how time consuming and daunting the process of finding the right people to buy your franchises and represent your brand can be. Our team has many years of experience in doing just that and are pleased to offer our services to ensure your franchise network has the best opportunity to grow with the right people looking after your customers.

Enquiry Management

All enquiries received, either through your website or the First Franchise website listing are followed up quickly by one of our friendly team to ensure the potential franchisee speaks to someone while they are engaged and excited about taking the next step. This is a crucial component in a successful franchise sales process. Any enquiries you receive directly can be forwarded to our team to begin the qualifying process. We will only discuss your franchise with these direct applicants.

  • Family life and support structure
  • Employment history
  • Skills and practical abilities
  • Hobbies and interests
  • The type of work they enjoy 
  • How much time a week they have to commit to the business 
  • The amount of capital they can access to purchase a business, as well as working capital
