The Stanwood Group is unique in that we believe franchising should be accessible and affordable to anyone. We are the only Franchise Development Company of its kind in the United States whose fees are contingent on your success. Through our FranReady™ Franchise Start Up Program, for those eligible, our fees are structured so as the lionshare of the Development Fee is deferred and paid to us once initial franchise sales commence. This allows you to preserve precious capital for when you need it the most and not wasted on overpriced providers for things you simply might not need.
Four of our Board of Advisor Member/Suppliers have been recognized and awarded the prestigious Legal Eagles designation by The Franchise Times for their excellence in practicing franchise law. You have access to all of our Supplier Members at preferred pricing simply because you are a Stanwood Group Client.
