Opening Doors To A World Of Opportunities

• Franchise strategic planning
Successful expansion starts with a clearly defined plan. We begin with the basics, researching all aspects of a franchise strategic plan: franchisee profile, required support services, competitive marketplace analysis, cost projections, cash-flow sensitivity analysis with profit projections, and royalty structure.

• Legal analysis
The complexity of the legal environment in European nations and in Russia requires expert analysis and on-site, country-specific expertise. IFG utilizes local, in-country legal counsel to assure the success of your franchising operation.

• Custom operational model
Our team of experts support design and creation of specialized sales and marketing materials, training manuals and collateral material - including translation - to ensure your franchise launches successfully.
