What About Ongoing Support?

No sweat! We’ve always got your back with our AC Membership.

Maybe you have a pretty obvious roadblock right now (starting to franchise, establishing your franchisee coaching, etc.) and you’re keen to start working with AC Inc to accomplish this project…. What happens when that project is finished?

The AC Membership is like a flexible monthly subscription. If you need more support for a few months you’ll be on a larger package, and if things change we will adjust your package accordingly – maximizing your budget AND time.

We’ll explain more about the membership in your initial call!

The level of engagement in our work with AC Inc was terrific! Their team focuses on practical, incremental changes that move businesses forward – all done with a positive mindset. The AC team was able to get some of our owners to think about what they wanted to achieve in their business and to identify actionable items that could be implemented. 

The AC team is passionate, caring, experienced, and dedicated to helping the growth of franchise systems. Working with them has allowed us to focus on areas of our business we had been neglecting and get better support systems in place for our owners.

The AC team authentically uses their deep level of expertise and insights to look out for me and help me be as strategic as possible about where I spend my time, energy, and capital for growth.  They have taught me so much about how to organically find franchisee prospects and how to work with them to uncover whether they are going to thrive as a Happy Cat Hotel franchisee.

Our Unique Approach to Franchise Growth

Our team has experience in all areas of franchising – from franchisee to field coach to franchisor and we’ve seen what works (and what doesn’t). We’ve developed a clear, actionable approach to franchise growth, our AC Method.

The AC Method has helped franchise systems from 0-750+ units focus in on their mission, create ethical franchise systems, achieve sustainable growth, and increase brand profitability.
