Yes, I have a business and I have operated this for some time now. It has given me financial returns and some people have approached me asking if I franchise my business or telling me they want to franchise my business. I am normally left confused and perplexed.

Yes, I see many franchised businesses around but how can I franchise my business? I have heard that some have done it on their own but they encountered problems when they franchised. Some have paid millions to get someone to assist them to franchise their business, and there are also people who offer their services to help because they came from big franchise companies.

Considering all of these, what can I do?

Butz and Lyndah Bartolome, husband and wife team of GMB, teach every entrepreneur on How to Franchise Their Business

Yes, there are several options for you to franchise your business. There is one exciting program to do this and we have called this GMB FRANCHISE GROWTH DAYS, MY FRANCHISE – MY WORK.



1. There are MANY business concepts that can be franchised.

2. Expanding the business will greatly boost the brand.

3. It has also been proven that franchising a business is the single most successful way to grow a business.

4. Expansion through franchising does not only bring benefits to the business owners but also gives opportunities for people to become entrepreneurs using a business system and with a “big brother” that will assist in operations.

5. Multiple franchised branches will likewise create employment.

6. Yet, there are only some businesses that get into franchising due to a number of reasons:

a. Business Owners know how to manage their own businesses but are at a loss when it comes to franchising their business.

b. Focused franchising development costs can be high and often, small businesses with potential cannot afford these costs.

c. Since franchising is a new territory for business owners, they are not confident to do this alone.

d. There are so many misconceptions about using franchising as a route to expansion.

Every entrepreneur needs to learn details in crafting their Franchise Business

This program has been developed from my over 26 years in franchising as I have witnessed the way companies have grown through franchising.

1. We group business owners together and do an intensive 6-day sessions with them on franchising their business.

2. We have developed a way for the business owners to work on their own franchise system.

3. At the sessions, we walk through with the Owners on exactly how franchising works to grow their business.

4. As the seminar title connotes, the franchise system of the companies is developed by the business owners themselves with our very close guidance.

5. Business Owners developing their own franchise system puts them in a position to better implement the system and the commitment to the success of the franchisees is in the heart of the Owners.

6. Putting the business owners together gives them the needed push to do this work together as a group. The sessions make them realize that the challenges they have are not isolated and is shared by all business owners.

7. Togetherness in the 6-day session shall foster the feeling of “camaraderie” and teamwork amongst them. Hopefully, this “camaraderie” is carried on even after the sessions and they continue to have their group chat and exchange opinions and share learnings as they pursue their franchise growth dream.
