We source both passive and confidentially active candidates that will be the right fit for your team based on skill sets, experience, methodologies, and overall fit.

Phone Screening

We take this time-consuming aspect of recruiting off your plate. We speak with many candidates to find the few that are the right fit for your brand at your current stage.


We know franchising and the questions to ask that flesh out knowledge, thought processes, Franchise EQ, and more in topics such as Marketing, Operations, Real Estate, Construction, and Sales.


We coordinate interviews, background checks, reference checks, follow-up with candidates, and guide the overall process. You simply hit yes to the calendar invite and review the candidate profile.


Together we will define the ideal handoff, and support the candidate’s transition out of their current role into your brand; hitting the ground running on the designated start date.

Who Know The Industry

Franchise Recruiting and Franchise Executive Search are at the core of what we do. But before the life of recruiting Tim Katsch lived as the Director, VP, and EVP role in Operations, Real Estate, Development, and Marketing for an emerging franchise brand. He did field visits, ran franchise advisory councils, sourced real estate, oversaw construction, worked on marketing projects, ran discovery days, and prepared items in the FDD.

Our goal as franchise recruiters is to acquire talent that delivers exponential value year after year. We do this by being masters of the franchise market, knowing what questions to ask, knowing the brands that operate in the franchise space, and the individual candidates that make up those companies. In turn, we find the perfect fit!

Our promise is not to be the jack of all trades. Rather we will focus our franchise executive search by shining light on the right places in the franchise industry to identify, attract, evaluate, and land top talent in Franchising.

We are heavily focused on data-driven decisions and digital means to communicate with the right candidates. In franchising, we have identified what we call “magnifiers” that franchise professionals present on paper, in person, and in the way they speak about the industry. We strongly believe that making a transition is not easy. Coaching we found was the best tool to support candidates in resignation, transitions and then onboarding onto a new brand. Technology, Magnifiers and Coaching set us apart from other Executive Search and Recruiting Firms.

Extend Your Search Beyond Job Boards

When working with a Franchise Executive Search and Recruiting agency your search goes beyond just job boards. You gain the ability to reach a larger pool of candidates. Some who might not have been looking.

Franchise career opportunities posted to job boards will receive interest from active candidates. These are people currently not employed or looking to make a transition. The advantage of working with a franchise executive search firm or franchise recruiter is you have the ability to reach out to passive candidates. These are candidates who have good jobs, get paid well and at the moment are not actively looking. These are top performers you may not traditionally have the ability to contact. A recruiter can source, reach out and present your brand as the next step in their career to align the candidate’s aspirations and the client’s perfect fit.

We go to franchise events, we review franchise media, we connect on social media, and we have conversations with franchise people every day.

Simply put our daily mission is to meet new franchise friends and build strong meaningful relationships with the franchise community so that we have to ability to connect great franchise people with great organizations.

Common Questions

We are here to support the franchise industry. We welcome any questions in regard to the industry. Some common questions in regard to Franchise Recruiters or Franchise Executive Search are:

We have four primary sources for where candidates come into our purview

1) Connection Calls & Meetings

2) Referrals From Network

3) Franchise Events

Having a plan for when new hires will occur is key. Traditionally this will begin with your three forecast and refined in your one year budget. From here you can determine what quarter this new hire would ideally start. While a traditional recruitment process will take between 30 – 60 days its best to start conversations in advance. This will allow a recruiter to keep an eye open and put confidential feelers out, so when the time comes you can hit the ground running.

With every recruiting engagement comes a Right Fit Guarantee. This means that if it’s not the right fit for either party we will replace a candidate for no additional fee. 

Working with a recruiter will vary from depending on the recruiting company and the industry. In the franchise industry we have seen fees ranging from 18% to 35% of first years compensation. Franchise Hire is on a mission to make recruiting obtainable to all franchisors. With that said for our traditional guarantee our fee for Management and Director level searches is 22%
