When acquiring an established franchisor or even a company that might be franchised in the future, there are several types of due diligence that extend beyond the bounds of traditional legal due diligence or financial due diligence.
Of course, the key to any acquisition lies in the soundness of the business model at the individual operating unit level. But in franchising, this analysis should not be limited to the business model itself. Because the acquisition candidate must compete both in the consumer market and in the franchise market, the buyer must also look at issues including:
Having assisted with the due diligence of numerous franchisor acquisitions, the iFranchise Group is uniquely qualified to help buyers through this process. We understand both the buyer’s and the seller’s needs to conduct this due diligence expeditiously and, of course, confidentially.
Depending on the situation, we have used proprietary mystery shopping techniques both to assess franchisee satisfaction and franchise salesperson performance without ever raising the slightest internal concern or raising any unwanted questions. And our knowledge of the franchise marketplace, franchise organizational structure, and franchise KPIs is second to none.

“It’s been a pleasure to work with you… I’m pretty arrogant about my business knowledge and had thought just engaging an attorney for this journey would be fine.
However, at each step in the process iFranchise Group consultants have opened my eyes to ideas and expertise that I believe to be critical and NEVER would have uncovered on my own.”
