How To Find Franchise Sales Jobs

Finding Franchise Sales Jobs can be a roller coaster.  Selling franchises can be exhilarating, but figuring out where you personally fit into the greater franchising market can be a challenge.

Here are some options to consider once you’ve decided that you want to sell franchises:


Option #1: Become A Franchise Broker / Coach / Consultant

The vast majority of people who sell franchises are franchise consultants.  There are many franchise broker networks that have hundreds and hundreds of consultants, and most of them are franchises that you can join for a franchise fee of $50,000 – $100,000.  Some of our favorite franchise broker networks are:

  • FranServe
  • IFPG
  • BAI
  • FranNet
  • TES
  • FCC


Option #2: Get Hired By A Franchisor

Every year, we meet a few guys who work for various franchise brands that sell 50-100 units per year and get paid $10,000 – $25,000 per deal.  It’s not talked about much, but these types of employees make hundreds of thousands if not $1M+ per year.  On the flip side, for every 1 of these franchise sales jobs that exist, there are dozens of franchise development reps that work for brands that only close 1-5 deals per year and are on salary for only $4,000 – $5,000 / mo.

So, if you’re going to work for a franchisor, it’s best to work for one that is really slinging a lot of deals.  The great thing about working as a franchise sales rep is that typically the franchisor pays for all of the ads and leads, and you just have to follow up with them quickly and sell the prospective franchisees on the opportunity.

The one major downside of working for a franchisor directly is that you can get fired at any time, wiping out your entire income source.  And, finding a good replacement opportunity can be challenging.


Option #3: Work For An FSO

The nice thing about working for an FSO is that you typically follow with higher quality leads that are pre-paid for by the franchisor, yet you are usually working leads from 3-4 brands so you’re diversifying your portfolio of brands that you are selling.  In these types of situations, you’re usually also making about $10,000 – $15,000 per deal depending on the brand.  So, if you can have a base of $5,000 – $7,500 / mo. plus make another $20,000 – $40,000 / mo. by closing 2-4 deals, it’s a great way to go for a franchise sales job.

Here at Lead PPC, we’re primarily known for our franchise development lead generation services as a franchise marketing agency that works with 100+ brands.  However, we do provide FSO services for a handful of our clients.
