The Franchise Protection Company

The Franchise Protection company sets out to preserve and protect the value of your business. We recognise the unique relationship between Franchisors and Franchisees and bring a solution that gives peace of mind to both parties.

The Franchise business model often results in a successful and valuable business. Typically, success will have come as a result of hard work and sacrifice along the way. The least any business owner should do is protect the underlying value of their business.

The Solution – The Franchise Protection Plan

The franchise protection plan will have three component parts

  1. Provide money to reply all loans and debts
  2. Provide working capital to ensure ongoing operation of the business
  3. Provide money to buy the shares of the business at a pre agreed value

The proceeds from the Insurance plan will allow the franchisor to ensure the ongoing concern of its respective franchisee, settle all loans and debts and give an agreed value to the franchisee for the shares of its business.

The benefit for the Franchisee

  • Preserves and Protects any money the Franchisee has invested in his business
