Our Services


Franchising may be the key to unlocking your growth potential. We are a full service franchise consulting group and can help you determine if you are a good candidate for franchising.

What does it mean to be ready to franchise? No one is ready until they have gone through the entire four phase process, but there are many indicators that can help you decide if you are a good candidate. We discuss these with you before you make any decision to move forward.

The GoFranchise Team brings all the necessary franchise legal experience, business and operations experience, franchise experience, and franchise sales and marketing experience to take you through each phase of the franchise process. Our experience includes, but is not limited to

The principals of GoFranchise have consulted with numerous startup franchise concepts over the years and can bring a concept to market at a total cost to launch (TCL) that is usually half of the investment required by the Franchise Mega-Mills and expensive Franchise Legal Firms. Instead of genetic Franchise Disclosure Documents and License Agreements your documents will be customized for the unique requirements of your business model. With proven capabilities and personal knowledge of the requirements of the various Franchise Registration and Exemption states and a firm grasp of technology required in today's competitive franchise marketplace, our principals will be with you every step of the way to legally design, launch and aggressively expand your franchise concept.

Franchise Repair

Is Your Concept Sick Or A Victim Of Unscrupulous Franchise Developers?

Approximately half of GoFranchise's Franchise Consulting clients contact us because they are experiencing slower unit sales than anticipated, experiencing attrition of franchisees, or have difficult relations with their existing franchisees, or all three. Most of the time these are symptoms of a rush to market before all of the franchisor/ franchisee key points have been fully examined and addressed, a poorly designed Franchise Disclosure Document and License Agreement, or both.

Although hard-to-stomach, there is a path to repair what has been done and re-launch under a new franchise expansion paradigm using a competent consultant and QUALIFIED legal counsel.
