At Aquia Realty we combine knowledge and experience to give you the easiest transition into your new franchise company. Whether it's your first time or an expansion of your current company, we strive to do the best possible job for you to ensure your businesses success.
This process starts with an extensive look into what is best for you as our client, taking the pressure off both Franchisor and Franchisee. We handle all of the following for you:
- Selection and Management of a Local Broker within Franchisee’s Designated Search Area
- A Formal Start to the Project Meeting, including Introductions, Discussion of Common Goals, and Answering Franchisee’s Questions.
- A Full Market Survey and Personal Review of Sites.
- Full Demographic Analyses.
- Progress Conference Calls just to check in and see how things are going.
- Vetting of Sites with a Corporate Real Estate Liaison
- Full Letter of Intent and Lease Review/Negotiations
We will represent our client to negotiate the transfer or renewal of an existing lease. This service includes negotiating directly with the landlord, keeping communication open between all parties, and a thorough review of final documents.
We will compare the accepted Letter of Intent with the draft lease, confirming all calculations and providing project-appropriate additions and deletions. All business terms will be personally reviewed with the Franchisee, and final lease recommendations, such as additional legal, insurance, and construction review, will be made.
We believe every business needs customers to be successful. The more you know about your potential customers and your consumer market, the better equipped you'll be to market your products and services effectively. Below is a general list of resources that are essential to business and are a few of the demographics that we will research to ensure your businesses success.
- Population and households’ data allow you to quantify the current market size and extrapolate future growth.
- Household income data as a good indicator of residents’ spending power. Household income positively correlates with retail expenditures in many product categories.
- Age is an important factor to consider because personal expenditures change as individuals grow older.
Education levels also figure into the socio-economic status of an area. Because income increases with advancing educational attainment, many retailers focus on income level rather than education.
Occupational concentrations of white and blue-collar workers are used as another gauge of a market’s taste preferences. Housing ownership and rate of housing turnover is an important factor for numerous retailers to consider.
