You've worked hard at growing your business and you're passionate about what your business model has to offer. Now you're thinking about taking it to the next level; franchising your business. Unlike franchise lawyers or franchise attorney firms we do not simply give you a 50 plus page package to fill out. We work directly with you giving you the individual attention you require.
As franchise developers, we have the experience, resources and infrastructure to guide you through the franchise process, every step of the way adding value to your business.
"Be careful who you talk to about franchising your business. There seems to be a lot of new companies that have recently popped up without any track record or worse yet, run by slick salesmen who brag about themselves in an effort to camouflage their nasty background. Keep in mind that every picture on this website is of real clients and all companies we list are businesses we have taken to franchise from start-to-finish. If the other people you talk to do not list clients, that is a warning sign, and if they do list clients ask them if the companies they list are businesses they have taken to franchise from start-to-finish. Or are they just consulting with existing franchises and selling them? Do your homework! The Franchise Maker® does not sell franchises, has NO hidden agendas and specializes only in franchise development launching businesses like yours into franchising. The Franchise Maker® has real clients and real results."

How Do I Franchise My Business?
Often times we hear, "I want to franchise my business, but I don't know how to franchise; how do I start the process to franchise my business; what does it cost to franchise my business." Or, "I want to franchise my business, but it seems too problematic." Franchising your business doesn't have to be complicated or cost hundreds of thousands of dollars (not even close). We believe that a better use of your resources is to invest in initiatives that will further enhance, brand and market your franchise system. We are based in California, where regulations to offer franchise opportunities are much tighter than other states. We have had tremendous success not just in California, but across the United States because we excel at making franchising a simple, painless, QUICK and EASY process for everyone.
Whether you want to franchise in California, Oregon, Texas, New York, Florida or anywhere in the United States, you will be surprised at how quickly we will make it happen. In addition, with our unique Pay As You Go Program, you pay gradually as work is completed, so the pressure is on us to perform for YOU.
However before you get carried away about the idea of franchising your business lets first explore what it really means to franchise a business. Franchising is a means of establishing a network of independently owned businesses (all of whom operate either their own limited liability company or corporation) and are given permission by you to sell products and/or offer services under your name and the same way you do it. These independently owned businesses (known as “franchisees”) are responsible for: finding a site for their business (if applicable), the entire cost of opening their business, hiring and managing their employees, advertising their business and of course adhering to standards established by you (the “franchisor”) when operating their business… just to name a few (to learn more Contact Us). When you become a franchisor you are responsible for teaching franchisees all your methods, processes, procedures, techniques and best practices so they can be just as successful at operating your business in their market. This entire concept is known as “business format franchising” and fosters uniformity. Besides the money you generate as a franchisor, there are many other benefits to franchising so call us and we will be happy to share them with you!
Franchising has played a major role in the American economy (and internationally) because it delivers to consumers the brand and service uniformity they desire while enabling entrepreneurs to align themselves with a system that intrinsically affords them benefits and leverage they would not otherwise have on their own. If this is something you aspire to do with the business you have created, then franchising may be an option for you. You have questions…we have answers. See a list of frequently asked questions.
