GFC is very selective in the franchise brands it chooses to work with. Using a series of strict criteria, we have spent 1,000s of hours pre-screening franchise brands. By only working with the top 5-10% of the 4,000 franchise brands offered in the United States, we will keep you clear of the industry’s underbelly. In other words, the hardest and most time-consuming part of your franchise search has already been done for you. Without the headache of weeding out the “bad apples”, you can devote all your attention to finding the right “fit” for you and your home market. There are four quadrants of franchise businesses, all of which are well represented in GFC’s portfolio. By understanding the unique characteristics of each quadrant, you will be better equipped to focus on the categories that best fit your personal criteria.
