Welcome to the International Franchising Consultant network
International Franchising consultant network (or IFCN) is a network formed by franchise consultants that can help you expand in different countries worldwide.
Since 2003, the International Franchise Consultants Network has been promoting franchising as a way to grow businesses on a global scale. It’s members are the leading franchise consultancies around the world, and have the knowledge, skills and cultural expertise to help your business succeed in their country.
Represented in numerous countries, IFCN unites leaders in franchising. The IFCN franchise consultants are experts in their respective countries with the main objective of assisting franchisors and the franchise community with growth and international expansion.
IFCN’s main function is to provide international franchise advice. We give proactive and tailored international business consulting and development services to help avoid the pitfalls that can cost franchisors much time, effort and money. Contact with a local IFCN member provides an effective one-stop shop towards international development.
The benefits IFCN can provide to a franchisor that is interested in international development are numerous, including reputable local professional advice in foreign markets and access to their expertise and extensive contacts in the franchise industry, including investor relations, finance, legal, market research, recruitment strategies, etc., all of which complement the in-house capabilities of the franchisor.
It means that the franchisor will have a ‘group’ of expert advisors at hand throughout the process and reduce the learning curve significantly, minimizing risk and increasing the chance to build a viable business model in a specific overseas territory.
Our goal is to assist you with your international franchising initiatives. All our members offer:
International strategy and expansion advice, organization of franchise export models for a company, development plans, feasibility studies, market research including competition analysis, concept development and fine tuning for the market, etc.
Lead generation of Master Franchisee and Individual Franchisee (in specific cases) candidates, executive search for franchisors and introductions to other contacts and experts, such as solicitors, financial institutions, accountants, PR agencies, etc. necessary to develop a franchise.
