A match made in heaven

Over the past 30 years, Franchise Development Services has guided franchisors through the process of attracting, recruiting and establishing new franchise owners. Here, Chris Davies reveals why employing the services of experienced franchise recruitment consultants is key to expansion success.

Paramount to the success of any franchise recruitment is that those undertaking the groundwork are experienced franchise executives. Chris has worked with several major brands during his illustrious career and has an impressive track record.

He has a keen eye for a turnkey franchise offering and its potential to capture an interested franchise owner’s imagination. Chris provides franchise recruitment services with an equally turnkey approach, whether the brand is branching out globally or territorially within the UK.

Chris said: “Provided that your company has realistic franchise recruitment goals, a sufficient budget in place and the desire to work with us as part of your team, we have the necessary elements for success.”

FranMatch clients currently on board include hair design business Rush Hair, the revolutionary Irish fitness franchise sásta and pizza business, Figaro’s Pizza.

The FranMatch service gives franchisors peace of mind that its recruitment is in safe and experienced hands.

Chris runs a structured lead management service that provides qualified and suitable candidates to expanding franchises. Each potential franchise owner is professionally assessed against the brand’s profile and, on finding a match, Chris carries out the initial interviews to ensure the candidate’s ultimate appropriateness to the franchise.

He takes care of every phase of the recruitment process, from managing a potential franchise owner’s first pique of interest in your brand up to when agreements are signed and a new business created. Chris Davies has 21 years’ experience in the franchise industry and is FranMatch Executive at FDS.
