Supplier Mentoring

As a Supplier there is no better way to leverage your business than getting into the Franchise Channel. You can immediately increase your clientele by 100s with only ONE contact! Learn how to become a preferred Vendor to Franchise Organizations.

Let us tell you how we entered the Franchise Channel as a Supplier 18 years ago. We know what works, what doesn’t, and can save you from all the pitfalls along the way. We also work very closely with Top Franchise Organizations Worldwide and know exactly what they are looking for in their Suppliers.

This year round program will teach you exactly what you need to do to appeal to them and then we will place you immediately in front of them! There is NOTHING else like this Mentoring Program! Dan Martin, CFE has over 30 years in Franchising and he can’t wait to teach you how IFX has hundreds of Franchise Brands in the Franchise Channel and how to get you there too! There are multiple levels of mentoring so you will have all the attention you need walking you through the next year of accelerated growth in your Supplier Business.

Each session is personalized exclusively to the client. Each session works towards analysis and development of the franchise channel for the client’s specific products and services. Clients are provided with recorded (audio and video) versions of each session, as well as notes and Action Items to be completed by both parties prior to conducting subsequent Strategic Consulting Sessions. Client surveys are conducted at the conclusion of each session for the client to complete. This keeps both parties on track with regard to expectations, meeting expectations and results.

At the end of the initial round of strategic advisory sessions, clients are free to select from a variety of options relative to further expanding their products and services. This can include the actual implementation of a marketing effort in conjunction with IFX if all data developed to date merits further dedication to the franchise channel, as agreed to by both parties. Clients can then consider any of the additional relationship structures identified above.
