Great Operations Manuals are Great Sales Tools

On the other hand, incomplete (or non-existent) Operations Manuals kill franchise sales.  Your detailed Franchise Operations Manual will also become your initial and ongoing franchise training manual. You won’t need to create a separate training manual.

The Table of Contents and the number of pages must be disclosed in the Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), and most potential franchisees want to view the Operations Manual before buying your franchise, usually at Discovery Day where you should be closing most of your sales.

Not Just a Template

My Franchise Operations Manual Templates include customization specific to your franchise offering that will significantly reduce the time it takes you to complete the manual, and give you the tools you need to produce a professional, world-class Franchise Operations Manual.

  • Logo and Corporate Colors.  Your custom template will include your corporate logo, company name and address on the cover page, copyright information added to the footers, and your corporate colors throughout the entire manual.
  • PDF Conversion.  When you are finished editing, we will convert and combine the finished Microsoft Word chapters into a secure Adobe Acrobat PDF.  You can print as many copies as you need, send the protected version to a printer, post to your website, and distribute it electronically to your franchisees.
  • Technical Support. Unlimited technical support while you are working with your Franchise Operations Manual Template.
  • One Hour of Franchise Consulting from an Industry Veteran.  Franchise Consulting is in addition to the full technical support you will receive while you are working with your Franchise Operations Manual Template.
