Our Process

How We Work

  • Our simple approach to developing your unique franchise system, is to ensure we completely identify every task that your franchisees will undertake in the operation of their franchise. We are able to pinpoint any gaps in your operational procedures and work with you to develop strategies that strengthen your system and brand.
  • TMF is unique in that, following a series of discovery meetings and strategy sessions, our team begins work on your comprehensive franchise documentation in-house, rather than outsource to a third-party or provide you with generic templates to complete. This ensures all aspects of your business operations are tailored and represented accurately. In other words, we do all the work!

Who We Are
