More iFranchise Group Reviews


“I have been considering franchising for my business for several years and when the pandemic hit in March we were presented with an opportunity (it didn’t feel like it at the time) to have the time to actually do this. I had been given a copy of Marks book and decided to reach out to iFranchise and another firm. I could tell pretty quickly that iFranchise was in another league when I did my due diligence. In terms of the backgrounds of the consultants, it was like comparing a high school football player to Tom Brady. When we got the quotes back, iFranchise was significantly higher and I almost went with the other company purely on price. I’m so glad I didn’t. EVERY consultant at iFranchise has been amazing to work with and each one brings a massive amount of real world franchise operations experience to the table. If you are on the fence of who to use, I HIGHLY recommend iFranchise. I can honestly say that knowing what I know now, what they charge is a bargain for the value you get. We are just a few short weeks away from launching and I have great confidence in the support system that we have at iFranchise.”

– Jerry T., Google

“We started working with the iFranchise Group a little over a year ago. As a health care franchise, it was important for us to do everything right, so we hired them to help with all aspects of franchising. Their team did a tremendous job. We have sold 46 locations in our first two months and their team made a significant contribution to our success.”

– Justin C., Google

“The iFranchise Group had an integral part in our success of launching our Big Blue Swim School brand. If you’re are serious about franchising your concept they can help get you setup A-Z. I highly recommend them especially Barry Falcon.”

– Scott T., Google

“Our company has utilized the services of the iFranchise Group on multiple projects over the past ten years. They created our first franchise sales brochure and operations manual, and then updated both documents as we grew the chain and evolved our franchise model. The iFranchise Group also provided marketing guidance related to franchise lead generation as well as public relations support. They have a great team that provides keen insight in a professional and timely manner. We now have 36 stores and we’re looking for additional growth in the future.”

– Tom Ryan, Vice President of CD One Price Cleaners

“Mark Siebert and Dave Hood have assembled a franchise consulting team at the iFranchise Group that is second to none. When Auntie Anne’s Pretzels was just starting off on its franchising journey, iFranchise consultants provided critical strategic planning and franchise program development. Our company’s growth and success over the decades is due in no small part to the path on which they set us.”
