    DeleteJohn Ferracuti We present the FDD strategically, depending on the individual candidate and where they are at in the process. People who are familiar with the FDD tend to get it earlier and people who are less familiar with the whole due diligence process tend to...more1 month ago
  • Erik Premont
    DeleteErik Premont Strategically is the right word. In sales it's not only what you say but how and when. Disclosing prospects too early is as counterproductive as too late. We are in the relationship business, and by nurturing an early, mutually respectful, enjoyable...more1 month ago

  • Craig Slavin
    DeleteCraig Slavin Joe Caruso You put so much emphasis on delivering the FDD to the buyer as soon as possible in order to start the sales process. I don't agree with that at all. People do not buy franchises because of the information that's inside the FDD. They buy...more15 days ago

  • Michael Mutsaerts
    DeleteMichael Mutsaerts In my humble opinion, whenever you release your FDD, it should come with some dialog on the purpose of a good contract (agreement) and additionally, some idea on what to expect from the disclsoure. I have found getting ahead of the curve builds the...more13 days ago

  • Pete Lindsey, CFE
    DeletePete Lindsey, CFE We have two meeting prior to offering our FDD. First meeting is just to get to know who we are talking to and to lean about them and their needs. The second is to really go over the Sport Clips opportunity to see if it's even a fit. The third is the FDD. We feel that building trust is so critical to what we do. If they ask for it early, then we will most likely provide it but if they can't follow a process of evaluating our franchise then they most likely will not be able (or have the patience) to follow our system. We do follow a very deliberate system in our offering process and have plenty of info online for them. Being a semi-absentee opportunity, most of the time our prospects are working and they typically really appreciate syncing up in a way they can 'digest" the true opportunity. 12 days ago
  • Colleen Pyle
    DeleteColleen Pyle I would give it after speaking with a prospect a few times. Maybe prequalify them first , then disclose them. We have on our website where they can request information and then my sales team will contact them. I would think most companies would make it easy for prospects to obtain an FDD.
