Fulfilling a Need in the Industry

Why did Winmark Franchise Partners make the decision to launch a franchise consulting and investment arm? Simply put: there was an existing need in the market for a franchise advisor that would make a difference. In fact, according to the IFA and FranData, the leading market research firm in franchising, approximately 68% of the almost ,3,400 active franchisors in the United States have 50 units or less. Moreover, 41% of those same franchisors have less than 10 units, meaning that the majority of franchisors are still emerging and need help to grow, gain experience and efficiencies, and get access to capital. We have the expertise that franchisors, entrepreneurs, and business owners need to help them start and grow their franchise systems more successfully and more profitably.

We can help various types of entities, such as:

  • Select entrepreneurs looking to develop a franchise concept or franchise an existing business
  • Emerging franchisors in need of franchise management services to help fix or grow their franchise system
  • Mature franchisors looking for franchise advisory services to turn around a stagnant business or in need of an exit strategy
  • Larger corporations looking at franchising as a growth vehicle for a new product, service or division
  • Private equity groups looking to divest franchise brands
  • Private equity groups looking for an operational due diligence partner
