Franchise Best Practices Audits

Auditing Your Existing Franchise System

For those franchisors who are unable to achieve their growth plans, the iFranchise Group often recommends that the process begin with a strategic audit. The iFranchise Group can audit specific elements of the franchise program or conduct a complete assessment of the franchise organization. The end result of any audit is a written report with specific recommended action steps that the franchisor should undertake in each audited area.

Individual audits include:

  • Strategic audit
  • Legal audit
  • Operations audit
  • Organizational audit
  • Marketing audit
  • Internet audit
  • Franchisee surveys
  • Franchise training audit
  • Franchise sales audit

The iFranchise Group offers comprehensive audit services covering all aspects of the franchise organization or customized audits based on perceived need. Who should get an audit?

  • Franchisors with a defined need or shortcoming
  • New franchise company owners looking to develop their strategic direction
  • Franchisors who want to do an “annual check-up”
  • Franchisors who are redefining their missions
  • Acquiring companies doing “due diligence”
  • Franchisors wishing faster franchise sales
  • Franchisors with quality control or franchisee relationship problems

Annual audits on sales practices can help you reduce your legal exposure and improve your sales performance.
