Sound good to be true? That’s what I initially thought, as well.

A “managed model” means that the corporate franchisor will manage the entire business for the franchisee, only requiring 2 hours per month of the franchisee’s time once the business is up and running. Each franchisor has a corporate management team that will do everything from A to Z to get the business up and running to manage daily functions.

Some highlights of the “Managed Model” structure include:

In addition to the traditional royalty, management fees range from an additional 4 to 5% of gross revenue Hosting two 1-hour calls per month with the franchisee on details of the business, KPIs, goal setting, and Q&A Recruiting, training, and management of the franchisees’ staff Handles bookkeeping, payroll processing, billing, and collection of fees payable to the franchisee. Oversight of advertising, promotions, and marketing. Real estate location and build-out for brick & mortar concepts, and more.
