Franchise and Franchisees Background Screening

As a franchisor, it is critical to have a thorough franchisee evaluation and review process, so that you, the franchise owner, can select the right franchisee applicants for your company's franchise network. By thoughtful and careful analysis, you improve your odds of choosing successful franchisee owners to represent and promote your franchise company's image and value, and who will continue to pay ongoing royalties for years to come.

You have worked hard to build your franchise brand – Protect your franchise company by implementing thorough background checks on your franchisee applicants.

  • Evaluate the credit-worthiness of your franchisee applicants. We can help by providing credit reports on these individuals.  "Soft-pull" credit for franchisee screening is also an option.
  • Bankruptcy-Lien-Judgment Search -- This is essential, since tax liens and civil judgments have disappeared from all credit reports, ever since July 1, 2017.
  • Protect your franchise brand image, by ensuring that undesirable and dangerous criminals are not associated with your franchise company network. We will furnish the franchisee background screening solutions you need with our full range of criminal and civil records search options. 
  • Additional background screening services, such as Motor Vehicle Reports, Verification of Educational Degrees, Professional Licenses, and employment history further complement our suite of franchisee background screening solutions.
  • Canadian credit reports and international criminal searches are also available.

Avoid the consequences of bad publicity from having franchisee owners with undesirable criminal histories tarnish your franchise brand. Whether through traditional print, radio, and television media, or in today's world of viral social media, bad press can significantly damage your franchise company network.
