Franchise Compliance and Royalty Assurance

Ensure That Franchisees Are Compliant

As a franchisor, your primary goals are maintaining brand integrity, assuring that franchisees are compliant with contractual purchasing, accurate financial reporting, and overall brand value and integrity. Unfortunately, in any franchise concept some bad actors get in and attempt to get around these requirements.

High-performing franchisees who truly help grow your brand, sales, and profits don't want to be part of a system where under-reporting, outright cheating, or other such malfeasance goes unchallenged; they expect you to protect their investment.

A strategic, custom-designed audit program by IntelliShop will assure that franchisees are compliant and reporting accurately and completely. Such programs almost always pay for themselves in the incremental revenue we help find and recoup.

What to Expect from Franchise Compliance and Royalty Assurance

We assure compliance with the agreements your franchisees sign and that their sales reports and other financial statements are accurate. Our independent audits of franchisees are done on a consistent basis to ensure objectivity, consistency, and fairness. Everyone has heard the stories of franchisees who setup ghost P.O.S. systems, use unauthorized raw materials, and sell company-branded products in unapproved and unreported ways, costing companies into the millions of dollars in lost royalties. Some of the service we use to address these issues include:

  • Royalty Auditing
  • Proactive Royalty Assurance Programs
  • Brand Standards Compliance Auditing
  • Fraud investigations
  • Post Termination non-compete covenant and de-identification investigations.
  • Integrity Mystery Shopping

IntelliShop’s services will identify if such issues exist in your organization, stop them quickly, and help you claw-back the under-reported payments due.

Protect Your Franchise

Protecting your future takes trust in your franchisees to do what's expected. But sadly, you can't always rely on them to live up to your standards. We work for you to make sure they do.

Our experts have decades of experience in securing and shoring up the outliers. Their experience and expertise will protect you from lost revenue caused by fraud and human errors.
