The FPG Difference
Let’s face it. Every “out of work” former VP of Franchise Sales is now a “Franchise Sales Consultant” looking to earn a few bucks while they are between jobs. That’s not us. We are students of franchising committed to mastering what it takes to build a franchise brand. We push the envelope. We challenge the stale, tired, conventional tactics and ways of thinking which is producing industry wide diminishing franchise sales returns. We wrote the book…three books actually…on successful franchising: Street Smart Franchising, The Franchise Sales Tipping Point, and Developing Peak Performing Franchisees.
Creating, documenting, and implementing what it takes to create an iconic American franchise brand is what keeps us up at night. It lights us up. It’s who were. It’s our God-given calling.
If you have an undifferentiated “me too” franchise brand and you want to pump it up and dump it later, we aren’t what you are looking for. But if you have a chance to create something unique and special…a beloved brand that outlives all of us…you will not find a company that will take it as seriously as we do and deliver the results we can. Reach out to us and let us know who you are.
We have a long track record of breakthrough results:
Listen to what our clients say:
Don Fertman, Chief Development Officer for Subway, “When we needed some outside assistance we chose Franchise Performance Group. They bring a level of understanding of franchisee recruitment that few in franchising possess.”
Shelly Sun, CEO and Co-Founder of BrightStar Healthcare said, “Franchise Performance Group helped us achieve our first breakthrough in franchise sales results.”
Art Coley, CEO of Alphagraphics, “I have worked with Joe Mathews of Franchise Performance Group for nearly ten years. Our franchise sales training and strategies resulted in a significant double-digit increase.”
We focus on franchise buyers
We know franchising! Unlike most franchise vendors, we come from within the industry. We have been franchisees and know what the buying process is like from first hand experience. We also have franchisor experience and know firsthand how every major role in a franchise system works. We have created lead generation programs for our own franchise brands, developed and managed franchise salespeople and have a long history scaling franchise systems of all sizes.
Creating a tipping point for franchise sales is a linear process: it begins with your brand story and how you get your message in front of prospects who are already looking for you and are a good fit. It continues through to your lead generation efforts, franchise sales process and the skills of your franchise salespeople.
All of the work we do is focused on understanding how prospects buy franchises in today’s complex market. We get franchise buyers and we know how to position your brand so it can attract the best.
