Who is Elite Franchise Consulting?

Elite is a franchise consulting firm located in Reno, NV owned and operated by Matt Burns. My company has the knowledge and resources within the franchise industry  to offer clients an inside look at hundreds of different franchise opportunities.

Are Your Services Really Free?

My services are ABSOLUTELY FREE TO YOU, the franchise seeker. I'm compensated by the franchises I represent to assist them in the development and growth of their business.

Do I pay more for a franchise if I use you rather than going direct to the franchisor?

Absolutely not. In single unit franchising, fee negotiation is very rare. Almost everyone pays the same franchise fee regardless of how they are introduced to the franchisor. With my connections in the industry and knowledge of franchising, I aim to save you time and money by helping you to identify the best franchise for you. I will find you the best franchise match.

 

Why would you use a franchise Consultant?

There are many reasons, but let’s focus on the two main ones: experience and access to hundreds of today's best Franchise opportunities.

With over 2,800 franchise concepts available in the United States alone, searching for the right franchise is a daunting task.  

Elite Franchise Consulting currently works with over 500+ of today's top franchise opportunities from dozens of different industries. I know which ones are up and comers, which ones are established and which ones will be right for YOU.

What is the process?

The approach is very simple and straight forward. I will conduct an initial interview with you to gain insight to your previous experiences, goals, strengths, weaknesses, investment range, target market and more. Then I'll work to select ideal franchises for you and assist you in researching the opportunity. When you are ready to take a serious look at a franchise, I'll facilitate the introduction then remain by your side throughout the remainder of the process to help you ask the right questions, speak to the right people and discover the keys to what makes a franchise opportunity great. I'll continue to stay in touch with you when you own your franchise, as you may want to expand your operation in the future. Elite Franchise Consulting will always be there for you FREE of charge.
