Our Mission: To grow franchise brands and companies that excel to greatness with a profitable and sustainable business model.
Helgerson Franchise Group was founded in 2005 to provide experienced development, management and consulting to new, emerging and mature franchise brands, supplier companies and other stakeholders.
The “Field Manual” for successful franchising. Five Pennies: Ten Rules to Successfully Build a Franchise Mega-Brand and Maximize System Profits, the leading book on growing and managing a franchise brand, was written by our founder Lonnie Helgerson, CFE.
Creating Franchise Mega-Brands (Great) is our Specialty!
Every year tens of thousands of new franchisees open their doors for business and look to fulfill the American dream of success, and every year hundreds of new franchise companies announce their plans to be the next McDonald’s®, SUBWAY® Restaurants, Marriott®, RE/MAX®, or Great Clips® and fail to reach that goal. Why?
Beyond the initial legal work, basic operations manual, some training and a fancy logo to get started, what does it really take to be a successful franchise brand?
We can guide and assist you in with your dream of becoming the next “BIG” franchise brand. We have over 30 years of brand building experience and can assist you with everything from initial concept planning to developing operations manuals, training, operations, and more.
Beyond the startup phase we can help you grow with systems and resources including franchise sales, marketing, technology requirements, training, brand management tools, and management advice.
