FBC places capital with successful entrepreneurs operating within the framework of proven franchise systems
Franchising is an industry ripe for both active and passive investments, representing over $2 trillion in annual sales across dozens of sectors.
Franchising continues to grow due to demographics, innovative new models, and the proposition for candidates to build businesses with an established brand, support system, and track record.
Investing in franchises provides FBC with clarity into the performance of other owners within a given company via the Item 19 section of the system’s Franchise Disclosure Documents. This allows FBC with good insights in predicting future returns.
Additionally, candidates typically invest their own capital alongside FBC, providing added incentive for future success.
Without FBC, individual franchisees are primarily reliant on SBA loans and other debt instruments for funding.
Franchisors are supportive of FBC’s partnership due to their desire to grow their system with strong, guided candidates that have capital to expand rapidly.
By sharing talents across the FBC portfolio of investments, FBC creates efficiencies that often do not exist in standalone businesses.
Shared incentives for franchisees, franchisors, and FBC inherently position the investments for success.
While FBC portfolio companies utilize technology, their core models are largely immune to advances from Amazon and other tech companies.
FBC invests in franchise brands that have Item 19s in their FDDs. This provides insights into the average performance of a franchise location thus reducing investment risk.
