WEST PALM BEACH, FL, November 16, 2022 /24-7PressRelease/ -- Following an impressive first half of the year, Accurate Franchising, Inc.™ (AFI), the leading franchise development consulting firm that helps entrepreneurs grow their businesses through franchising, has experienced continued success with the closing of 17 new development deals in the third quarter.
To date this year, AFI has closed 63 deals that will help launch franchise programs for concepts across a variety of industries, including restaurant, beauty, and construction, and expects to close an additional 25 new development contracts by the end of 2022.
"The success we've achieved shows once again how strong the pull of owning your own business is," said Tipton Shonkwiler, President of AFI and Managing Director of the Consulting Division at United Franchise Group™ (UFG). "We're honored that so many entrepreneurs trust that we have the tools and the expertise they need to navigate the complexities of setting up a franchise so they can take their business to the next level."
With five of its third-quarter deals coming out of Australia and New Zealand, AFI has also grown its international footprint and will continue efforts to fuel international business throughout the remainder of this year and beyond.
In addition to new development deals and market growth, the firm continued to enhance support for its clients, fueling optimism for even more success in 2023. AFI consultants devote approximately four months to the process and provide a customized sales and marketing program. New franchisors can also now choose to enter the AFI Extended Support Program, a two-year mentoring system launched earlier in 2022 that provides franchisors with extra resources during the critical early phases of business development.
