Franchise projects: turn your business into a franchise

We help you to turn your business into a franchise, determining the general viability and the conditions and characteristics of the project, as well as transmitting relational and management guidelines to you for your future franchisees, the necessary functional structure, etc.

Franchise Projects

The necessary elements in this initial phase, prior to the expansion of your franchise, are:


Viability plan of the franchise

The development of the franchise project begins with an exhaustive initial analysis aimed at verifying the chances of success of your business model as a franchise network. The viability plan is extremely important; it is not just another step in the process of setting the project in motion, but rather constitutes the base on which the entire subsequent documental development rests as well as the survival of the business over time.

Documental base

After analysing the viability of the franchise project and establishing its characteristics and conditions, Barbadillo y Asociados consultants develop the elements that comprise the documental base of your project in detail. The elements that make up this documental base are:

The franchisee recruitment dossier

This is the commercial document of the brand which comprises the first reference the potential franchisee receives regarding the company and the business model. For this reason, it must attract the candidate’s attention from the very beginning. Barbadillo y Asociados takes responsibility for designing it and its development and contents (texts, creativity and layout), providing original, tailored solutions at all times.

The franchise contract

This is the essential document for regulating the relationship between franchisor and franchisee. The legal department of Barbadillo y Asociados is responsible for the full drafting of your franchise contract and preliminary contract. It ensures the content respects the ethical framework of the European Franchise Code of Ethics, Spanish legislation and current community legislation.

The franchise operations manuals

These manuals allow us to transfer your business model to the franchise holder. The success of the transfer of knowledge from your business and the norms the franchisee must follow, both operationally speaking and in the internal franchisor-franchisee relationship, depend on the drafting of these manuals. The manuals also explain the guidelines for behaviour that must be followed on an everyday basis towards customers, and therefore, to sum up, it is this franchise manual that will enable all the units to function according to the same pattern.

The franchise visual identity manual

This document contains and determines the characteristics of the logo and other hallmarks of the system, as well as their application to the business. This tool is  indispensable if we are to prevent incorrect usage of the visual identity of the franchise.
