Meet Your New Franchise Team

When you partner with RainTree, you instantly sign a team of highly skilled and experienced franchise development pros.
Here’s what your team’s going to look like:

LEAD QUALIFIER

To ensure your Sales Experts focus only on qualified candidates, you’ll be assigned a Lead Qualifier to help sift through the many inquiries we will receive. The Qualifier’s role is to respond immediately to new inquiries and provide them with enough information to get them excited about the concept, while also ensuring the candidates meet the initial qualification requirements.

SALES EXPERT

A seasoned franchise sales pro knows the ins and outs. They know how to successfully walk a candidate through the franchise education process, how to identify the right types of candidates and most importantly, how to get them incredibly excited about your brand! Once we hit our stride and the pipeline begins to fill up, you’ll be assigned a second franchise sales pro to ensure that each candidate gets adequate attention and time.

BRAND MANAGER

Your point person! For all questions, ideas, updates etc, you have a dedicated brand manager who does the digging around so you don’t have to. The Brand Manager helps keep the entire team organized and growing in the same direction!

GRAPHIC DESIGNER

Once your franchise is correctly packaged through effective marketing tools, you’ll have your own graphic designer to make updates as required. From website updates, to presentations and franchise reports, your Graphic Designer has you covered.

MARKETING DIRECTOR

To ensure our marketing and advertising campaigns are successful, we constantly create, test, recreate and re-test our campaigns. The Marketing Director will be responsible for this, ensuring that PR is managed well, portal advertisements are fruitful and that social media is attracting the right types of candidates. All of this is reported upon thoroughly, each and every week.

BROKER LIAISON

For a successful franchise broker program, you need someone who can cultivate relationships with the right brokers. Your Broker Liaison will be responsible for this, and through tactics like monthly newsletters, regular webinars, personal phone calls, incentive programs and face-to-face meetings, we’ll make sure the brokers know about your brand!

“We are a 30 year old franchise brand but we got to a point where we could only recruit a few new franchisees a year. So we partnered with RainTree to re energize our franchise growth. They created a plan for us to achieve a 350% increase in franchise sales with them in 2016. We hit the goal by September. This has been a fun year! Simply, they are genuine people who do what they say they’ll do.”

 

Scott Walker
President – Screenmobile

Our Suppliers

Over the past 5 years, we have been relentless in making sure we’ve identified the best suppliers, tools and lead generation channels available in the franchise industry. We then spent years using our volume buying power to ensure that our partner brands enjoy heavily discounted rates across the board. We take pride in passing on 100% off the volume savings directly to our brands.
