“We first met Joel Libava after leaving the corporate world almost 12 years ago. We knew from the start that Joel was genuinely interested in helping us find an endeavor that would support the lifestyle we were looking for. We liked his process, and he was supportive and very professional. We are very happy with the success of our growing business, and often think back to those early, important discussions with Joel.”
– Margie and Ray Toombs, Maid Brigade franchisees
No matter where you’re at in the franchise buying (or investigating) process, Joel Libava will help you figure things out.
Important: Don’t confuse what Joel does with what franchise “consultants,” and franchise “brokers” do. The difference is like night and day. Or like cats and dogs. Or like salespeople and non-salespeople.
A Franchise Ownership Advisor Is Not A Franchise Broker
Franchise consultants and franchise brokers are paid (large) commissions by franchise companies that they have sales contracts with. Most consultants and brokers (which are really the same thing) work with 150-200 different franchisors.
Currently, there are 3,000+ different franchises being offered. That means that consultants and brokers are only working with a small percentage of opportunities.
These franchisors expect the consultants and brokers to send candidates (like you) to them so they can sell their franchise opportunity. If that happens, the consultant/broker receives a commission-a percentage (usually 40%-50%) of the up-front franchise fee* that the candidate pays.
*Franchise fees these days range from $25,000-$80,000 or more. Do the math. Not a bad payday, huh?
That’s why franchise consultants and brokers offer “Free Franchise Consulting.” Their commissions are lucrative enough for them to offer their services for free.
“Deciding to purchase a franchise is a huge decision and the key to making the right decision is doing the proper research. I tried to do that research on my own and I while I learned a lot, I knew I didn’t have enough information. What’s worse, I didn’t know the right questions to ask. Then I met Joel Libava. He’s truly an expert in this field. If you are thinking of franchising, don’t do anything until you have talked to Joel.” – Susan K., Chicago, Illinois
The Franchise King®, Joel Libava, does not work for franchisors; they’re not his clients.
You are Joel’s client. He works to protect your interests. He isn’t a franchise broker; therefore he’s not paid a commission to “match” you to franchises that are part of his portfolio of franchisors. (He doesn’t have a portfolio of franchisors)
That’s why he can offer franchise ownership advice that’s unbiased.
His income isn’t dependent on you writing a $25,000-$80,000 check to a franchisor.
Joel’s paid for his expertise; not his sales skills. But wait; it gets even better.
