FDD walkthrough

No More "Going Dark" During the Franchise Sales Process

One of the most frustrating pain points for franchisors is having their sales "go dark". This happens when your FDD doesn't get registered or renewed in the state you're selling franchises in.

Although there are factors that are sometimes out of our control, we do everything possible to minimize the risk of this happening. How? We start the next year's renewal cycle in Q3 so we're always ahead. Some goals during our FDD Planning Process include:

  • Strategy sessions
  • Modeling out Item 19 and review data collection
  • Ongoing registrations and renewals
  • Communications with accountant
  • Franchisee compliance
  • Management team discussions and goals
  • FDD enhancements and updates
  • So much more
