Franchise Operations Manuals
CUSTOM OPERATIONS MANUALS
My Custom Franchise Operations Manuals can be ready to start protecting your brand and enforcing strict compliance with your franchise system in as little as 60 days.
The Table of Contents samples below are examples of the starting point that we use to create a unique Operations Manual custom-tailored to your franchise offering and franchise system. With an existing manual rewrite, we can start with your current Table of Contents.
With custom manuals, we do all the work, including research, writing, editing, and formatting with at least one onsite visit to your location and unlimited phone and email consultation.
In addition to in-house editing, we also use a professional editing service to help eliminate grammatical and punctuation errors.
CUSTOM OPERATIONS MANUAL DEVELOPMENT
Step One - Documents Review
We begin with a detailed review of your Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD), Franchise Agreement, and other documents to make sure the Operations Manual accurately reflects what is in the FDD, Franchise Agreement and your franchise system standards.
- If you don't have a completed FDD or Franchise Agreement yet, I can help you. Be sure to contact me for a free consultation. Or Book Time on My Calendar.
Step Two - Location Visit
The location visit is a meeting to collect the information we need to begin preparing an Operations Manual specific to your business model and franchise system. During the visit, I work personally with you to learn everything I can about your business, industry, systems, and company culture.
I will also review and collect documents and other necessary collateral to use when preparing the manual. Other than out-of-pocket expenses, there is no additional charge for the initial on-site visit.
Step Three – Rough Draft
In about 30-45 days, you'll receive a rough draft for review and comments on changes or additional content. We will make the changes and additions you request, assemble the manual as a second rough draft, and continue to work with you until you are delighted with the content, layout, and finished product.
Step Four – Final Version
You will receive a full color printed version of the manual in a 3-ring binder, in editable Microsoft Word and also as a secure Adobe PDF document. 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.
You own the manual and can make as many changes or revisions as you like. We can also provide operations manual changes and updates as your franchise system grows and matures.
