Franchise Industry Veteran Introduces Coaching Program To Help First Time Franchise Buyers

Nick Yates has sold over 700 Franchises in just 9-years resulting in contract sales in excess of $200,000,000.

Let me help you source the ultimate franchise concept and buy it on the best possible terms. I am NOT a Franchise Broker. Instead of taking you to the franchise brand that pays me the highest commission, I’ll take you through the discovery process with ANY franchise concept you choose, or we hopefully choose together. My #1 goal is to help you find the most profitable franchise system and help get you invested on the best possible contract terms.

HOW CAN NICK HELP?

HOW CAN NICK YATES HELP YOU AS A COACH?

The first thing we will do together is identify the concept. If you already have a concept, we will make sure it’s the perfect fit for your skills and personality. 

I will be by your side to help you through the entire discovery, research and negotiation phase. This means from the first call with franchise development, through to the day you sign the franchise contract. 

I will be on the calls with the franchise concept salesperson you are dealing with, listening to find the holes in his/her presentation. I will help you ask all the right questions at the right time. I know all the sales traps; we won’t fall into them. In fact, we will set our own traps for the seller and completely control the narrative.

I will guide you towards the best franchisee references so you can gauge how successful they really are. I will make sure we talk to the right people based on research not recommendation.

I will work the numbers with you, so you avoid future surprises. If we don’t see the right ROI, we will walk away. I will remove emotion from the buying process.

I will take you through the seller franchise contract and disclosures so you don’t neglect anything that might hurt you later. I will help you mark it up based on what you want, and what is fair. I have seen thousands of these contracts, I can read between every line.

Finally, I am a relentless negotiator with 25-years of the best kind of experience. Why is my experience deemed so good? Because I have made every mistake possible along the way. My journey to date has been filled with incredible successes coupled with many challenges, and of course some failures. All of these mistakes have become lessons learned, they are invaluable. I want to share these lessons with you so that you buy the business of your dreams for the best price, on the best terms, without making any mistakes along the way.

CONSULTING PROGRAM

Meet Nick Yates and discover why he is the ideal franchise coach to help you source, discover/educate, and negotiate your new franchise opportunity on the best terms, to give yourself the best possible chance to succeed.  

What type of franchise are you interested in? Why? Does it suit your skills? Do you have the budget? Do you want employees? Are you paying cash, or do you need finance? Will you be approved for finance? Will you operate the business yourself? Will your family be involved?  Do you (and your skills) bring value to the franchise concept?

Understanding your role, and the franchisors’ role. What type of onboarding is provided? Is the training enough? What support platforms will you have access? Is the franchisor using new forms of technology, or living in the dark ages? When you call, do they answer? Can you speak to fellow franchisees? Are these franchisees motivated to tell you everything is ok, when in fact it isn’t? Is the franchisor focused on growth? Are the fees fair and forgiving in the event you aren’t as successful as other franchisees? Is the marketing campaign effective? Is the franchisors balance sheet enough to see them survive the life of the contract?

Nick will provide you exclusively with his own, carefully crafted version of an ROI calculator you can use to create your own financial forecast and model. Understand before you negotiate the best and worst-case scenarios for return on your investment. 

Franchise agreements always favor the franchisor. It is very easy to be swept away in the heat of the moment and enter a binding contract that is not in your best long-term interests. It is also very difficult to get out of a franchise agreement without taking a big financial loss. You need to understand how to read the franchise agreement and disclosure documents. What fees are due? When they are due? What you can negotiate versus what is set in stone?  How to read items 6 (fees) and 19 (earnings claims). What is your role? What is the franchisors role? How to read between the tricky lines without the need of expensive franchise lawyers.

 Existing business owners are almost always open to negotiation however franchises “claim” to be a little different. Typically, negotiated changes to a franchise agreement are made through what is referred to as a franchise agreement “rider” or “addendum.” Because the franchise agreement is a form document included in the franchisor’s FDD, the majority of franchisors and their lawyers prefer to not make changes to the form. Nick Yates will show you how to spot the opportunity to determine what they are willing to negotiate on, and make sure you know how to prepare. You’d be surprised on how far some franchisors are willing to bend to earn your business!

Angela Carpenter
5/5

Nick is a brilliant negotiator; he is quick to see opportunity but also as quick to smell a rat. I would 100% have him on my side when buying a new business, especially if it’s a franchise

TJ Rogers
5/5

Nick is a salesman at heart with an impressive acumen for finance. He loves the numbers! Nick can read a proforma, can create financing and forecast models to better achieve client success. New business or franchise owners need to make sure the numbers add up, and Nick can do this for anyone looking for any business

Dave Spala
5/5

I actually sent a text to Nick not too long ago suggesting he find a way to put his skills to the best possible use and perhaps try to find a path that allowed him the position to help and give back. This new coaching role is a perfect vehicle for just that and I can assure anyone who is reading this that you are in the best possible hands if buying a new franchise is something you are passionate about.
