Franchise consulting firm closed record deals and saw success in extended support program

WEST PALM BEACH, FL, January 09, 2024 /24-7PressRelease/ — Accurate Franchising, Inc.™ (AFI), the leading franchise development consulting firm that helps entrepreneurs grow their business through franchising, announced today that they closed 85 deals in 2023, a record number for the brand showing 30% year over year growth. While the brand works with businesses across various sectors, the leading industries this year included food, medical, health & wellness, mobile businesses, and service-based companies.

Of the 85 deals closed this year, AFI enrolled more than 30 of those clients to its Extended Support Program. Launched in 2022, the AFI Extended Support Program is a two-year mentoring system that provides franchisors with extra resources during the critical early phases of business development.

“It is evident with the success our brand has seen this year that there is still a strong demand for those wanting to own their own business,” said Tipton Shonkwiler, President of Accurate Franchising Inc. “It continues to be an exciting time for franchising, and we look forward to helping our clients take their business to the next level in 2024.”

This year was also a time for internal growth of the AFI team. Jason Jacobson was promoted to Vice President of Operations. In his role he will oversee the operations in both the US and Australia working closely with David Ayad as they expand in the Australian market. In addition to Australia, AFI has identified Canada and the United Kingdom as two top major key markets to grow in 2024 and are putting more of an emphasis on doing so. In fact, Accurate Franchising will be attending the Toronto show mid-January.

“Accurate Franchising Inc. has guided us through the franchise development process from start to finish and is actively assisting us sell franchise units,” said Harry Mosca, Founder of Mindy’s Munchies. “Their team of franchising experts were indispensable and welcomed us into the AFI family with open arms. We could not have done this without them, and we highly recommend utilizing their franchise services.”

As part of the United Franchise Group family of affiliated brands and consultants, led by founder and CEO Ray Titus, AFI clients also benefit from the expertise of a global network and nearly four decades of experience in the franchise industry.
