Nearly 20 Years of Real Results – Real Solutions

We are experienced franchise professionals. We have managed franchise companies, awarded franchises, provided litigation support in disputes and have assisted hundreds of people in finding the right franchise.

We realized, back in the 1980’s, there was no way to be predictive in the recruitment and selection of franchise operators.  In real live Franchise Architects’ consulting assignments, we attempted to use many different types of personality profiling tools. What we found was that they were good tools but were used to recruit employees who are very different than franchise operators. The tools had no applicability as to whether someone could execute a business model.

Finally, in 1998, after many years of research, we launched Franchise Navigator.

We are now on the 8th release of the Navigator System and have made many considerable enhancements and have had huge successes with our clients. We don’t call ourselves “Proven,” our clients do.

Since 1997 the Navigator has been the most respected, accurate and market-validated assessment designed specifically for franchising.


Recruit more candidates that resemble your High Performer Profile. Why clog your pipeline with people that could never execute your business model?


We use your Navigator Profile to create a “profile-based” marketing strategy that recruits the right candidates.


The Navigator profile enables your operations team  to train the individual correctly and in a manner in which they will learn.


Our team of Navigator Certified Life Coaches work with your franchise operators and employees to achieve higher levels of productivity and profitability.


“By bench-marking High, Mid and Poor performing operators and employees – using the Navigator, you will identify 90% to 95% percent of future high performers with a high degree of predictability.”
