Why Owning an Emerging Franchise Works

Life-changing returns on franchise investments rarely come from mature, established brands.
The secret to franchising success is to get in early.

As an Owner of franchise brand, you’ll likely experience the benefits of owning a franchise:





As an Owner of an emerging franchise brand, compared to owning a
mature (well-known) brand, you’ll experience these additional benefits:


With emerging brands, you’ll have access to more territory availability, which means more profitable territories, and a real opportunity to grow your business into an empire.


For retail locations, you’ll get access to “A” grade sites, and not have to settle for “B” or “C’s.” As they say, “Location, location, location!”


As brands grow, typically so do their fees. You’ll likely find lower franchise fees and ongoing royalties with emerging brands. A big part of why you might also find much higher profitability in an emerging franchise brand.


With our vetted brands, you won’t just be “Franchisee #1239”. You will have direct access to the Founders, a real voice, and an ability to help influence the direction of the brand.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the vetting process for these brands?

Before representing a franchise, Raintree spends approximately 2 months analyzing the franchise business model, including:


  1. Forensic accounting of corporate and franchise location profit & loss statements 
  2. Interviews with Franchise Owners to fully understand their successes and challenges as Owners 
  3. SWOT analysis of brand competitors to ensure the brand has a unique selling proposition in the market

How much liquid capital do I need to have to qualify to own a franchise?

The minimum cash requirement you need to be able to show the franchisor for these brands starts at $50K. The higher the investment (and potential returns), the more liquid you will need to show.

Refer to each brand in the section above for the minimum amount of liquid capital you will need in order to qualify

Can you help with funding?

Yes! Raintree has established a track record of success with the nation’s franchise lenders.

As you work through the 4-6 franchise discovery process, we will simultaneously help you get approved for the funding you need to open your own franchise.
