FRANCHISE DISCOVERY DAY
Develop an event where prospects are given the opportunity to get to know, like and trust your brand and its leaders. This may be a formal Discovery Day or an online event. NDCS can assist you in all aspects of the franchise discovery development process.
After you recruit franchisees, they must be successfully trained. This is the most important aspect of your franchise recruiting process. Without proper training and understanding of your franchise brand and culture, your new franchisees will not be successful. NDCS assists in all aspects of the franchisee training process and can help your franchise system develop an onboarding process that is face to face, online (or both) that works best for your franchise system and your franchise budget.
After the initial onboarding, that first year is critical for the development of the new franchisee. Continuing education can take many forms. It can include online, expert mentoring, and site visits by the franchisor. In the near future, virtual and augmented reality will be included in franchise training. But no matter the format, the key is that the training system is in place prior to your first franchisee coming the system. The franchisee training system should be implemented during the first year of the franchisee’s association with the franchise system. Training should be required for the duration of the franchisee’s association with the system. However, the first year is the most critical and lays the foundation for the success of the franchise system and the franchisee.
Yearly or bi-Yearly meetings and conferences are critical for the morale and development of franchisees. It’s an opportunity for franchisees to network and also showcase lessons learned and their talent. A yearly conference or meeting (no matter how initially small) should be incorporated into the development of a start-up franchise system. NDCS can work with any franchise system to develop yearly franchise meetings, speakers and curriculum.
