Franchise Development

We’re Not Just Intermediaries! We Are Also Qualified Franchise Consultants For Your New Concept!

The principals of CBI+Team have consulted with numerous startup franchise concepts over the years and have brought many to market at a Total Cost to Launch (TCL) that is usually half of the investment required by the Franchise Mega-Mills and expensive Franchise Legal Firms. In lieu of boilerplate Franchise Disclosure Documents and License Agreements (see Franchise Repair section below) your documents will be customized for the unique requirements of your business model. With proven capabilities and personal knowledge of the requirements of the various Franchise Registration and Exemption states and a firm grasp of technology required in today’s competitive franchise marketplace, our principals will be with you every step of the way to legally design, launch and aggressively expand your franchise concept!

Franchise Repair- Is Your Concept Sick Or A Victim Of Unscrupulous Franchise Developers?

Approximately half of CBI+Team’s Franchise Consulting clients contact us because they are experiencing slower unit sales than anticipated, experiencing attrition of franchisees, or have difficult relations with their existing franchisees, or all three. Most of the time these are symptoms of a rush to market before all of the franchisor/ franchisee touchpoints have been fully examined and addressed, a poorly designed Franchise Disclosure Document and License Agreement, or both. Although hard-to-stomach, there is a path to repair what has been done and re-launch under a new franchise expansion paradigm using a competent consultant and QUALIFIED legal counsel.
