Franchise Realty Partners INFO
What is Franchise Realty Partners?
Franchise Realty Partners is a full-service commercial real estate company that operates as an internal real estate department for emerging franchisors. Franchise Realty Partners was founded by Drew McWilliams, a commercial real estate broker in the Carolinas with over 20 years of real estate experience. McWilliams and his wife also own preschool and child care franchise Ivy Brook Academy, which currently has 51 locations open or under development.
With over 20 consecutive years of experience working specifically in the tenant and buyer real estate representation field, as well as over a decade of experience as a franchisor, the Franchise Realty Partners team offers a turnkey real estate solution to help franchisors find optimal sites for their franchisees, connect with brokers, negotiate leases and more.
Why Franchise Realty Partners?
Unlike other real estate companies, the team at Franchise Realty Partners personally relates to franchisors because they understand the complex process of outsourcing an essential component of the onboarding process. They also understand the commercial real estate side and can offer both the expertise of a massive conglomerate with the communication and relationship-driven approach of a small boutique firm.
As a franchisor, McWilliams saw the need for stronger communication, reporting and customer service among third-party real estate companies. While other commercial real estate agents rarely answer their phone for a franchisor under 100 units, for example, the team at Franchise Realty Partners aims to be available at all times for every client. Additionally, McWilliams was displeased with the shady fees and inconvenient pricing structures he dealt with when working with third-party real estate companies, which is why Franchise Realty Partners [INSERT PRICING INFORMATION].
Franchise Realty Partners also takes pride in offering a turnkey service, working with the client to take an approach that works best for their needs. When a franchisor signs a new franchisee, Franchise Realty Partners will take on 100% for the real estate work to help them find sites faster, open stores faster, ramp up franchisees faster and bring in royalties faster. For example, Franchise Realty Partners can act as a franchisor's internal real estate department if a specific brand would benefit from this service.
This turnkey real estate solution also helps simplify the process for franchisors by ensuring they no longer need to hire one company to handle data-driven site selection and another brokerage to show the properties to franchisees and negotiate the lease. Franchise Realty Partners will handle it all.
In terms of real estate industry connections, Franchise Realty Partners provides an invaluable, nationwide network of brokers for emerging franchisors. When franchisors are starting out, they usually grow in their home state, where they already have real estate connections. But when they enter a new state, those local real estate connections can’t help anymore. Especially right now, where demand outpaces supply, it is incredibly important to connect with the best local real estate experts. The team at Franchise Realty Partners has been networking for 30 years collectively and knows multiple brokers in every city across the U.S.
Today, interest in franchising is growing rapidly as more and more entrepreneurs aim to take control of their destiny following the uncertainty of the COVID-19 pandemic. Additionally, competition within the commercial real estate market is surging all over the country due to pent-up demand and a lack of inventory. That is why it has never been more important for franchisors and franchisees to partner with a qualified team like Franchise Realty Partners to navigate the complex real estate process and ensure franchisees secure prime locations and attractive lease terms. Franchise Realty Partners can act as a trusted real estate partner for those franchisors gearing up for expansion in 2022 and beyond.
If an emerging franchisor is looking to eliminate the unnecessary pain point of real estate once and for all, Franchise Realty Partners is the answer. Instead of the headache of finding real estate, franchisors can focus on what matters most: optimizing their operations, supporting franchisees and selling more units to take their brand to the next level.
Since being founded last year, Franchise Realty Partners has already signed on to work with franchisees of multiple brands, including salon franchises Supercuts and Cost Cutters. Now, McWilliams says the firm is looking for new and emerging (between 0 to 100 units) franchisor clients, with the goal of adding 10 franchise brands or 50 units to its roster each year.
