What we do
We are management consultants concentrating principally on helping individuals and companies explore and implement franchising and licensing, and, furthering the development and upgrading of existing franchise and licence programmes.
We are proud of the work we have undertaken with many leading local, international and emerging companies.
We do not sell franchises. However, our marketing department formulates the strategies and creates marketing and promotional material for use in the sale of franchises. Our only source of income is the specialised franchise information and know-how that we provide.
We do not receive any sales commissions or income from other organisations’ products or services. This enables us to be totally client focused, with the capacity to be objective and to honestly evaluate and recommend in the true interests of the client.
Franchize Consultants (NZ) Limited’s success comes from the disciplined approach we take to solving franchise problems, based on our wide and deep experience in this specialist field, and from our highly qualified and knowledgeable team of staff.
Our systematic ‘Project Control’ allows complete accountability, from the precommissioning evaluation through to defining the scope and objectives of the work, project tracking, reporting timetables and work completion.
Franchize Consultants (NZ) Limited’s senior consultants work alongside corporate leaders and executives, independent entrepreneurs and small business people in a diverse spectrum of industries and businesses – assisting them to harness the power of franchising for their organisation’s maximum gain.
We at Franchize Consultants (NZ) Limited recognise that our value to clients lies in our people. As a consequence we only select the best.
By looking through our staff profiles you will see that we have both enormous academic and practical business and franchising experience.
