1/3/2017 - Posted by
Learning about a franchisor's training programs beforehand helps every potential franchisee to answer one of the most important questions they will ask themselves: "Can I really do this?"
With the proper training and support, they absolutely can. We recently spoke to Rebecca Monet, President and Chief Scientist of Zoracle Profiles, a psychometric assessment company that helps franchisors select the right franchisees by determining their compatibility and predicting their performance. Through their SpotOn! analysis, Zoracle Profiles assesses a franchisor's current franchisees, separating them into top performers, mid performers, and low performers, using markers provided by the franchisor based on market share, profitability, revenue, and many other attributes. Zoracle Profiles' psychographic assessment draws corollaries between those markers to find out why certain franchisees are so successful, and it provides a gap analysis which highlights areas where additional training or support is necessary for lesser performers.
