A Brief History
Professional B2B Consulting Franchise helping businesses make decisions about telecom services and products. We also minimize our clients Electronic Payment Processing bills if they supply merchant services. We only charge the client a fee if we save them money, which makes client acquisition an easy process. Our Franchisees are independent of all suppliers of telecom – no commissions, residuals, or kickbacks from suppliers – we always look out for our client’s best interest. Quick ROI – low cash investment – revenue driven business – can be operated from home or office – Franchisees can do business anywhere in North America – ideal Franchise for executives.
Our basic service, referred to as Existing Systems Review, is really quite simple. We review all the services and equipment that a business client uses to communicate. That includes cell phones, local service, long distance, calling cards, conferencing, data, internet, and more. Our clients are often not familiar with the products and services they are currently using because of the confusing environment in telecom. We prepare a professional report summarizing the services received and costs incurred. We then advise the client about how to recover overpayments and how to receive equal or improved service, for less expense. If we find ways to save them money and the client likes what we’ve recommended, the fee is an equal portion of the savings for a specified period of time! During the term of the contract with the client, we continue to evaluate their needs and will bring forward additional recommendations that create additional savings for the client and additional fees for our Franchisee. Ultimately we’re creating a recurring revenue stream with our existing clientele.
Franchisees generally begin by operating their Schooley Mitchell Franchise as a home-based business. Consequently, overhead and operations costs are minimal. Due to the fact that the Franchise system extends across North America, there is an opportunity for all Franchisees to network from coast to coast. This is a significant benefit for larger clients that may have multiple locations. Of course smaller clients are served locally and comprise a significant, lucrative portion of our Franchisees' client base. And, your client base is protected through our sophisticated client registry system.
Our success is based entirely on the success of our Franchisees. Consequently, we are very careful in our selection process. In selecting Franchisees, preference is given to applicants with the following characteristics:
Although the investment to acquire a Franchise license is small compared to most Franchises, you must be able to meet that commitment, as well as provide for personal expenses. Results vary from Franchisee to Franchisee, which makes it difficult to predict how many weeks from the point of start-up will be required before realizing the initial collection of fees. Consequently, you must have enough capital, so you don't require cash from the business for the start-up period.
Schooley Mitchell requires an investment of $56,500. You also require a computer with the ability to run Windows 2007 or higher, and a laser printer. If you already have an appropriate computer with the proper characteristics, there may not be further computer investment required.

Those actual requirements will be discussed in detail at the interview stage of the application process.
