How can we help you?
Expert Consultation & Support
All successful businesses today are defined by how strategy informs and drives the commercial, operational, legal, technology, brand, marketing and recruitment requirements. Developing a sustainable franchise network requires a multi-disciplinary, systems approach to deliver those requirements.
Implementing new technology can be daunting, that’s why we help you through the entire implementation process and provide training for you, your staff and help you design training strategies for all new franchisees and for the new staff on-boarding. Since technology will be an important part of your future franchise, it’s important to get it right.
The successful franchise is a mutually interdependent relationship founded on a value proposition that recognises the basic interconnectedness of the franchisor and the franchisee in building enterprise value for both. Financial analysis determines the perfect commercial balance in that relationship.
The implementation of every component of your franchise program as it is developed provides the step-by-step business transformation from your current operation to a franchise network. This is about ‘doing’ – practical, hands-on work, support and training with you and your team. Our team is there as you roll out your first franchises.
Your induction, training, operational systems and ongoing support are major reasons franchisees will consider joining your franchise network. The perceived value of these in mitigating their risk of going into business is determined by how you develop, present and deliver them.
Investment & Exit Strategy
The best time to consider an exit strategy is when you are developing your business. Our multi-disciplinary team develop your investment and exit strategy, prepare the necessary commercial and legal documentation and support you throughout the investor engagement process.
Australian franchisors are often approached by international entrepreneurs looking for the next hot concept to launch in their region. The inverse is also often true. In either case, you need a well-devised strategy, a well-resourced capability and a clear understanding of how to achieve a profitable outcome before proceeding.
A team of Franchise experts are here for you
Every business is different. Our consulting experts will tailor each franchise program to suit your needs. We work closely to determine your expansion objectives, value proposition, and market opportunity. We know exactly what it takes to grow a business.

True Business Transformation
As most CEO’s know, Business Transformation must permeate the entire organisation to apply the changes needed to reach your goals. We drive change for your organisation across all tiers, with consultants applying innovative solutions, rapid scaling, and the skill-building required to bring effective upgrades. DC Strategy is uniquely positioned with the exact expertise required to make this happen and it has been at the core of what we do for almost 40 years.
"Franchising is a serious commitment and DCS guided us through our economic modeling, 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!"
"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."
"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. "
"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. "
"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. "
"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."
"Franck Provost wouldn’t be where it is in Australia today without all the consulting and legal advice from DC Strategy. "
" 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. "
"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 a franchise network. "
