Our program is supported by a framework developed by research and feedback.
There are four key elements missing from peer groups: structure, commitment, clear expectations and accountability.
We collaborate with you from day one to customize this program with your unique goals. Pilots are utilized to show an ROI and generate excitement.
We provide training to your facilitators to ensure groups uphold structure, timeliness, productivity and boundaries in order to drive results.
Facilitators also receive ongoing coaching to advance learning, enhance leadership and overcome challenges.
We annually collect and share results about your program to measure outcomes. By showing its effectiveness, the program gains traction and your network thrives.
Already have a franchise peer group program? We will provide a third-party review to capture feedback and data on what's working, what's not and how it can be improved.
Once we have completed a program review, we partner with you to implement solutions. Common elements of a reboot include strengthening structure, facilitator training and measuring success.
Ready to launch a brand new peer performance group program? We collaborate with you to customize your brand's goals into the program's framework.
Research shows that 33% of franchisors in a survey have tried peer groups, however, of that one third, only 50% believed they were effective. Peer performance groups require a strong program foundation, maintained structure and ongoing facilitator training/coaching for success. We can help reboot your program or launch a new one that includes these components to drive results.
We recommend utilizing franchise business coaches/field consultants. We provide facilitator training and ongoing coaching to prepare them for the role. This also strengthens their effectiveness and impact with franchisees to strengthen the brand.
There are different factors that contribute to the appropriate time to begin offering groups. Launching them before you are ready can negatively impact the outcome.

Different from Roundtables, FPPGs allow for longer term, trusting relationships to dive deeper into business goals and leadership growth. We train facilitators to incorporate topics that guide constructive conversations so franchisees develop critical thinking, business acumen and leadership skills.
This program isn't just for high performers. FPPGs help mature franchisees feel challenged, newer franchisees tap into best practices and invigorate the overall network. Peer performance groups are also a selling point for prospects.
Groups are intentionally formed with 6-8 people to balance complementary characteristics with constructive participation.
We recommend piloting two or more groups to allow franchisees to be paired and divided optimally. Starting with a smaller number of groups allows your organization to build a strong program and grow momentum for additional groups over time.
