What is Our History and Mission?
Accurate Franchising, Inc. is the leading franchise development firm and the only firm that actually owns and operates their own franchise brands. We’re experts in the marketplace and work in all franchise industries. Our first-hand experience with developing and growing franchises gives us an understanding of the process and what a franchisor needs to succeed.
Our franchise experience began nearly 40 years ago with a single Signarama store. Ray Titus worked for his father’s franchise, Minuteman Press, before expanding with Signarama. Mr. Titus went on to develop a group of successful brands and franchise development services. His group became known as United Franchise Group (UFG).
Today, UFG is recognized as the global leader for entrepreneurs. The Group consists of 8 award-winning brands, with more than 1,400 locations in over 60 countries. We combine our decades of franchising experience with the ability to look forward to the future, so we can offer our clients tried and true techniques combined with relevant ideas and growth tactics to be effective both now and in the future.
At Accurate Franchising, Inc., we have one customer: our franchisee. When they’re successful, we’re successful, so we place emphasis on putting the franchisee first. It’s our mission to develop franchise brands that create opportunities for the entrepreneurs we serve to grow and scale their passion.
How Can Our Model Help Your Business Grow?
When you decide to launch your business as a franchise, you’ll need to think about your expansion strategy. Accurate Franchising, Inc. puts years of practical knowledge to work for entrepreneurs who are taking their first steps into franchising. We’ve walked in your shoes, so we’re able to offer insights that other franchise development firms can’t match.
After spending years putting in the hard work to build your business, you may be conflicted with determining effective ways to expand. Investing in additional locations takes a good deal of capital and even more time and energy. By choosing to go the franchising route, you’ll have a more efficient way to expand your business without the time and expense of opening additional locations on your own.
For starters, we’ll help you determine if franchising is even right for you. We offer a free franchise feasibility study that takes just a few minutes to complete, and with it, we can provide valuable insight into your brand’s readiness to franchise. If it turns out that your brand isn’t quite ready, we’ll provide advice and insight to help you prepare.
From there, Accurate Franchising, Inc. offers a comprehensive range of services to grow your business. It’s our objective to help you achieve your growth goals and beyond, so we work closely with our clients to ensure that our services are relevant, cost-effective, and cover all of your bases.
Our team of expert franchise consultants is at your service to guide you through the process of growing your franchise. We provide a portfolio of franchise development services to help your business reach its potential that include: franchise development, lead generation, sales support, real estate assistance, international expansion, CRM and support, and development of your Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD).
How Does AFI Assist the Community?
Accurate Franchising, Inc. knows how important the businesses we serve are to the communities where they operate. We work closely with the UFG staff to get involved in the community through philanthropic initiatives and help create a well-rounded culture.
We give back both financially and through active participation in our local communities. Accurate Franchising, Inc. is proud to participate in UFG Cares, which provides community assistance and emergency relief support. We participate in events held by Place of Hope, which provides housing and support services to children, youth, and families in need. We also work closely with members of the UFG staff to contribute to annual community service events, especially during the holiday season. Giving back to the community is an important way for us to encourage, educate, and empower our brands to improve our world.
What is Our Experience in the Franchise Development Service Industry?
As a franchisor, your business is dependent on the infrastructure of your franchise development services. Accurate Franchising, Inc. assists with the creation of key components for a successful infrastructure, including state registration, franchise agreement, brand policies and procedures, franchise royalties, training, and more.
The franchise development service industry continually grows in both providing support and in maintaining relationships with franchisees. At Accurate Franchising, Inc., we offer additional franchise development services that reflect this growth within our sales and marketing programs.
The franchising industry as a whole is experiencing a boom. Franchises were able to rely on their franchisors for support during the pandemic and, as a result of some careful rewiring to their systems, came out stronger and ready to hit the ground running.
In 2021, it was projected that more than 26,000 franchising locations would open, adding nearly 800,000 new jobs and contributing $477B to the U.S. economy. As more entrepreneurs consider franchising a source of revenue, the industry is becoming a more viable option for growth, and a more secure one at that, in these uncertain times.
Accurate Franchising, Inc. is the only franchise development consulting firm that owns and operates its own franchise brands. We have over 35 years of first-hand experience with franchising different business models, giving us an insider understanding of what franchisors need to be successful. This allows us to convert 8 to 10 concepts into franchises a month.
Additionally, Accurate Franchising, Inc. has a close connection with our UFG affiliate brands. This connection can provide services through these brands to keep both our clients and our UFG franchises strong.
Franchising is considered a safer option than going it alone. With more entrepreneurs looking for franchises to invest in, there’s never been a better time to consider expanding your empire with Accurate Franchising, Inc.
What Services Can AFI Provide to Our Clients?
Accurate Franchising, Inc. offers complete programs for growing businesses to expand into franchises. We’re able to provide a la carte services for clients that are tailored to their individual needs. After we determine if your business has franchise feasibility, we’ll work with you to build up your infrastructure.
From there, we can provide further resources depending on your business needs. Franchisees will need training, resources, and support, and you need a strong brand for them to invest in. Our comprehensive range of services is designed to grow your brand, whether you need lead generation, sales support, or real estate assistance.
No matter where you are in the process of growing your franchise, we have programs and techniques to strengthen your brand and help your business meet its potential. Even if you’re a mature franchisor, Accurate Franchising, Inc. can work with you to improve your strategic planning, branding, and franchise development to take you to the next level of prosperity.
