The Franchise Development Journey

We'll Help You Bring Your Business to the World

Feasibility

Before committing to a full program, we’ll help you discover if franchising is right for your business, and if not, chart the right way forward. Either way, you’ll come out ahead.

Strategy

We’ll help define and refine your strategy, to help you decide where to go, when you should make the steps, and how to get there.

Documentation

We’ll formalize the documentation of your franchise program as required by regulation, and to protect your intellectual property.

Sales & Marketing

What’s a franchise without franchisees? We’ll help you get your new franchise off the ground by getting the word out there and recruiting your ideal franchisees.

BUILD YOUR FRANCHISE WITH OUR AWARD-WINNING TEAM

Franchising is a serious commitment and DCS guided us through our economic modelling, feasibility assessment, legal documentation and lead generation work. They truly become an extension of your business as you seek to put everything in place to build a sustainable model that will generate returns for your new partners and your brand. DCS helped bring on our first franchisee and ensured he was the right steward for our brand. I can’t recommend DC Strategy highly enough!

Amit Tewari - Founder & CEO, Soul Burger

Our journey with DC Strategy has been fantastic! From that initial strategic workshop to implementing our franchise program – there’s been lots of touch points. But if I think of one really great thing in our overall relationship and how DC Strategy continues to contribute to our success, it’s having them on our board.

Warren Jones - Chairman, Total Tools

When DC Strategy came in to meet the board at the time, the noise was taken away. Once they had been convinced by the expert this is what you need to do and this is how you need to approach it and from thereon we never looked back.

Marshall Hartwich - National Market Development Manager, Ben & Jerry's

The DC Strategy team draws upon its solid understanding of the franchise model to improve the performance of our organization. By tapping their knowledge, we have more quickly identified our opportunity areas and defined the action steps to capitalize on them.

Bill Swanson, - CEO, Cartridge World International

We were comfortable with the consultancy because it was responsible for the growth and development of significant franchise systems and brands. Having a full-service firm ensures the consistency of information, advice and message from exiting franchisor and franchisee.

Joe Cirillo - CEO, Cirillo

DC Recruitment helped take KX from 5 studios to 30 studios quickly. James and his team go above and beyond to provide great support and a vast range of franchise knowledge that is imperative for sustained growth. Their involvement allowed me to focus on growing and developing other key areas of the business knowing the recruitment was in good hands. I would recommend DC to any company trying to expand their network.

Aaron Smith, - Founder and CEO

Franck Provost wouldn’t be where it is in Australia today without all the consulting and legal advice from DC Strategy.

Jean-François Carré - Co-Founder Of The Franck Provost Franchise in Australia

The Lead Generation team promotes us through DC Strategy and supports us with Lead Generation activities and also advises us on marketing strategies that specifically benefit Thermawood Australia.
I own and operate the Thermawood Victoria Master Franchise and have had great support from the LG team throughout our working relationship.
The team have been working with Thermawood Australia to promote the sales of our Thermawood Franchises across Australia. We have fortnightly video meetings as well as regular recap reports. We are always included in the planning and implementation of all marketing strategies and then advised on the outcome, their communication is exceptional. It is a pleasure to work with the entire DCS Lead Generation team.

Jacki Cook - Master Franchisor in Victoria

The team at DC Strategy took great care to understand our brand while developing our franchise system. They have worked closely with us to ensure we create a franchise system that reflects our passion in the Rosa Mexicano brand and their deep understanding of the franchise system made a significant contribution. I highly recommend them to anyone looking to establish their franchise network.
