Franchise projects: turn your business into a franchise

We help you to turn your business into a franchise, advising you on the general viability of the franchise project, its conditions and characteristics. We also advise you about many other essential aspects to bear in mind, as the relationship guidelines with your franchisees, the franchisor’s structure to support the franchise network, etc.

Franchise Projects

The essential phases prior to the expansion of a franchise network, are the following:

Franchise viability plan

The development of any franchise project should begin with an exhaustive initial analysis aimed to verify the success possibilities of the franchise as a consequence of an existing business model. This stage is of a great importance because is not just one of several steps in the franchise project launch process, but rather constitutes the base on which the entire subsequent documental development rests as well as the foundation of the franchise business over time.

Documentary base

After analysing the viability of the franchise project and establishing its conditions and characteristics, Barbadillo y Asociados develops the elements that comprise the necessary documentary base:

Franchise commercial brochure

It is the commercial information which contains the first reference received by potential franchisees regarding the franchisor itself and the business model. Its primary objective is attracting the candidate’s attention to the business proposal from the very beginning. Barbadillo y Asociados undertakes the responsibility to develop the texts, creativity and layout, providing original tailored solutions.

Franchise agreement

As the main document to regulate the relationship between franchisor and franchisee, it receives the most effective and comprehensive care from Barbadillo y Asociados’s legal advisors, under the general framework of the European Franchise Code of Ethics and the Spanish and EU current legislation.

Franchise Operational Manuals

The operational manuals allow the franchisor to transmit to its franchisees the whole compendium of rules applicable in the daily practice of the business. The manuals also explain the behaviour guidelines that the franchisee and his employees must follow, enabling all the units to operate in accordance with the same pattern.

Barbadillo y Asociados develop its content following the client’s operating procedures transmitted as simple and structured as possible.

Visual Identity Guide

This document contains and determines the branding characteristics, as well as its different applications in the elements with presence in the business.

Barbadillo y Asociados’s graphic design department works actively in the creativity of the branding and the development of the manual, when the client so requires.
