Why Winmark Franchise Partners®?
Experts in Franchise Management & Development
We are franchisors ourselves with over a 30 year history in the industry, managing, and growing 5 existing brands, 800+ franchisees, and over 1,250 locations in North America. Winmark® knows first-hand the current challenges and opportunities in franchising.
We work with new and emerging franchisors in a variety of creative ways, knowing by experience that not every business is right for franchising, and franchising is not right for every business. In most other franchise consulting arrangements, you pay the franchise advisor and they start the work. With Winmark Franchise Partners, since we are selective in who we work with, we want to spend some time getting to know each other first to see if there is a fit. Only once we have both determined that there is a mutual interest does any relationship begin. Should we both desire a larger partnership, Winmark Franchise Partners has the ability to invest in your brand and its growth with you as an equity investor. We are not afraid to put our money where our mouth is if we believe in your concept as strongly as you do. Because we are a publicly held, $650M+ market cap company, access to capital is not an issue.
Winmark has an incredibly deep and talented franchise management team and employee base of 100+ franchise experts to tap into when necessary to help you achieve your objectives. At Winmark Franchise Partners, between our internal team with decades of franchise experience and our unlimited resources and relationships in our network of legal experts, marketing and public relations personnel, and other strategic partners, we can provide a true one-stop shop for all of your needs.
