Starting a brand new business is like working in the dark ― you never know what you’re going to run into. That’s why a large percentage of new businesses fail in the first three years. To avoid becoming a statistic, many see the light in franchising. It provides a well-lit path to your entrepreneurial dream.
You know what you’re getting with a reputable franchise ― an established product or service, refined operating systems and proven track record.
The advantages of franchising are many:
- Recognized brand and proven business model
- Sound business strategy that aligns with today’s marketplace
- Comprehensive sales and marketing programs and resources
- Initial and ongoing training and hands-on support
- Team of seasoned corporate leaders and support staff
- Collaborative network of franchise business owners
- Access to the latest technology including hardware and software
Franchising can minimize your risk while freeing you to pursue your dream of owning a business. It’s easy to see why owning a franchise has become so prevalent in today’s market.
Being a Franchise Owner
One of the first things an individual considers when launching his or her own business is what kind of business owner they would be. Are they an inventor, innovator, visionary or, are they entrepreneurial with a desire to create a business around a proven system? If you fall in this last category, then franchising may be for you.
Franchise owners come from all walks of life. However, they share one thing in common: the desire to create their own destiny. We’ve had the privilege of getting to know franchise owners for more than 50 years, and although each is unique, here are the basic characteristics.
- Like working with a proven business model
- Want established operating systems to implement and follow
- Enjoy engaging and interacting with people
- Create environments based on integrity, dignity and respect
- Provide products and services that create value for their customers

Let us know you’re interested!
Fill out a website form and let us know which brand you are interested in learning more about. We will call you to introduce ourselves and most importantly, get to know you! We’ll have a conversation regarding your interest in one of our brands and answer your initial questions about the business model, the investment requirements and the franchise selection criteria.
After our initial phone call, we will send you a Request for Consideration (RFC), which is a preliminary financial qualification and eligibility requirement for ongoing consideration. By completing this document, you are expressing your interest in owning a franchise and becoming part of our network, but you are under no obligation.
From there, we will host a web conference to provide an in-depth look at our franchise business model, discuss our corporate training and how we generate the demand for our services. We will then ask if this aligns with your goals and answer any additional questions you may have.
Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD)
Once we have received your RFC and have agreed to move forward, we will provide you with a copy of our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), which provides details about the franchise opportunity and outlines the partnership between corporate and our franchisees. It is a large document with a lot of legal language that is required by federal and state regulators. If you’ve never seen one before, it may seem complicated. We can answer any questions you may have about the contents of the FDD.
This is where you have the opportunity to speak with other franchisees and pick their brains about the business model, financial performance, tips and strategies for success and ask any additional questions you may have.
By this point, you are knowledgeable about FSI’s franchise model and have made your decision to franchise with us. Your visit to our corporate offices in Orange County, California for a one-to-one Decision Day with the corporate team is the day that we welcome you into the family. After signing the franchise agreement on Decision Day, we schedule training and start you on the path to launching your business!
You are now a proud franchise owner and member of the family. Now, you can begin the journey toward achieving your goals – the best part is, we’ll do it together.
