The partners of Premier Franchise Advisors have collectively worked with over three hundred franchise brands as CEO, President, Founder of a Franchisor or Supplier working with Franchise brands. We leverage this leadership experience in helping our clients grow faster, optimize their operations and business valuation, and build strong franchise brands.
Our work with our customers is focused on the following segments:
Mature Brands with more than 200 units and over five years of franchising experience - we assist mature franchise brands with leadership advisory to the CEO, management team, Board of Directors or Private Equity owner. We help create expansion and growth strategies, help raise capital, help with assessing and executing acquisitions, and provide successful exit strategies when appropriate.
Emerging Brands up to 200 units - we support emerging brands as Board Members; as Strategic Advisors to the management team or the CEO; help raise growth capital and build strong franchisee relationships.
New Franchisors We work with new franchisors that are looking for advisory services and want to avoid expensive mistakes in franchising and growing their brand.
PFA works with private equity firms that are looking to invest, or have invested, over $10 M per transaction in franchise brands. Our work includes:
Strategic Advice on the long term success, pre and post transaction, based on our experience with hundreds of franchise brands.
Franchisee Due Diligence involving the strength of franchisee relationships and the functional inner workings of the brand for the long term impact on the success of a transaction.
Restructuring of franchise systems that are facing growth "headwinds", or need senior leadership help, including “interim” leadership assignments.
Our partners are successful entrepreneurs and senior leaders who have all built, led and sold their own companies. We are now looking to partner with fast growing franchise brands that are looking to raise less than $10M in capital and have shown proven success with their existing locations.
PFA provides "intelligent capital" that includes franchise experience and expertise along with the financial capital invested.
Our partners sit on the Boards of Directors and Advisory Boards of several franchise brands providing strategic advice and guidance. By providing the deep experience, expertise and connections of PFA partners our goal is to help prevent expensive mistakes related to growth planning, master franchise agreements, IT strategy, operations, training, systems and franchisee relationships.
