Franchisee Selection Has Never Been Easier
I’ll show you how you can lower your franchisee selection costs while getting more and better performing franchisees and minimizing turnover.
You’re looking for a way to improve franchisee selection and get better franchises. You’re hoping you can find some kind of franchisee assessment tool, a franchisee aptitude test or a personality profile that can help. Otherwise you wouldn’t be reading this, would you?
You’ve found it! The FranchiZe Predictor tells you how your candidate will perform – and it does it with 93+% accuracy. A strong claim, yes. But one I’m willing to prove it.
My job is to tell you how your candidate will perform in 3 critical areas, and tell you how your franchise candidate compares to successful franchisees in 6 major and 15 minor job-specific behaviors.
I’ll even go so far as to rank your franchise candidate in the top 15%, 25%, 35%, and so on. And do it in no uncertain language.
By the time I’me done, you’ll know if it’s worth spending your time on this candidate. Or if you should drop them and go on to another prospect.
Each report will let you know how successful your candidate will be. After that, it’s up to you.
After all, every franchise has their own unique set of “go-no go” points. Maybe you want franchisees that would perform in the top 15%. Or maybe you’ll accept franchisees that are in the top 50%. Either way, it’s your choice.
Does my method work?
You bet! Here’s what other franchisors have told us:
Here's How The FranchiZe Predictor Has Helped Your Fellow Franchisors Get Better Franchisees
We have had a 100% success rate
We have had a 100% success rate for franchisees brought aboard who had high marks on the report."
One store went from a negative growth rate to a sales increase of 26% the first year and an additional 13% the next year.
One thing we didn't anticipate was the FranchiZe Predictor's impact on guest experience. In a recent SMG restaurant satisfaction survey we went from scoring absolutely last to now being rated in the middle which is a very large improvement so quickly after starting with the FranchiZe Predictor. In another guest experience survey done by Restaurant News, Quizno's rating jumped more than any other company. Our rating jumped more than 26 spots from 29th up to 3rd.
I wish we could have used the FranchiZe Predictor earlier."
Kelly Hernandez, Senior Vice President Operations / Quiznos
The FranchiZe Predictor has been a great tool for Auntie Anne’s
We worked with Fred to customize the FranchiZe Profile to have an even better evaluation tool to use in the screening process, and later in helping to identify areas that may require enhanced focus during training."
Mike McCoy, Auntie Anne's Inc.
Helps us improve the overall standard of our franchisees
This program (the FranchiZe Predictor) enables us to now be very confident about the appointment and selection of people for our growing business. This helps us improve the overall standard of our franchisees and therefore our business as a whole."

Author of “Predicting Performance in Retail and Service Settings: Contributions of Managers’ Psychological Orientations to Franchise Success”.
“In a recent study we learned that nearly $20,000 of increased sales could be expected of franchisees for each one-point increase in their overall Predictor scores. Another recent study found that there was a $15,675 increase in annual sales for every single point increase on another scale.”

Over the years, we've looked at the performance of thousands of franchisees in a retail type business and compared them to the FranchiZe Predictor scores. What our independent researchers have found is that there is actually little difference in the behaviors of successful franchisees across franchise systems
A: No. The job-specific behaviors we measure are common to virtually every retail franchise. Over the years, we've compared franchisee performance with profile scores across many different industries and have seldom found any differences that were statistically significant.

How We Work
I’m not a salesperson. In fact, I hate sales more than anything else. I’m a problem solver… an analyst… which is why I took down most of my consulting lead forms.
I like focusing on what I am good at and only that, which is helping companies make the right decisions.
