Discovery Process

Crestcom's discovery process is among the most transparent in the industry. It begins in earnest during Crestcom's Franchise Candidate Training. During this time, you will become familiarized with Crestcom's system and methodologies—so you understand how to market, sell, and facilitate their leadership development programs. You will also get the opportunity to meet Crestcom's corporate support staff. Crestcom is the only franchise that trains you before signing an agreement. This ensures you can make an informed business decision.

What to Expect as a Franchisee

As a Crestcom franchise owner, you’ll be in business for yourself but not by yourself.

Once you’ve signed your franchise agreement, Crestcom will train you on how to market, sell, and facilitate their leadership development programs. You will then launch your business while being supported through coaching calls and full operational support towards closing your first sale within 90 days.

Bootcamp: You will attend a four-day Bootcamp training workshop, held monthly at Crestcom’s corporate headquarters in Denver (or conducted virtually). During Bootcamp, you will be trained on the following:

  • Overall Business Model & Processes
  • CRM
  • Crestcom’s proprietary Learning Portal
  • Lead Generation
  • Social Media
  • Email Marketing
  • Booking Appointments
  • Sales Process

Sales: The operations and coaching staff will guide you in mastering Crestcom’s sales process within the first three months

Facilitation: As a franchisee, you will facilitate the Crestcom BPM leadership development program, which is a 12-month program covering two modules per month. Crestcom will give you the tools and resources you need to deliver this leadership development program effectively. Graduates of the BPM program are eligible to enroll in Crestcom Continuing Education, a product that can provide you with a recurring client base and sustained revenue year over year

Our Ideal Candidate

The ideal franchise candidate is passionate about helping others. They feel rewarded by assisting managers in becoming leaders. Franchise candidates should be comfortable and confident speaking and working directly with Presidents, CEOs, and Managing Directors. Candidates should have strong sales and presentation skills, be able to follow a prescribed sales system, and demonstrate value to the client organizations they serve.

Crestcom's successful franchisees vary in age and background. They include former executives, marketing managers, engineers, retired military, accountants, attorneys, teachers, sales managers, and entrepreneurs. Generally, they all possess the following qualities:

  • Excellent communication and presentation skills
  • Time management skills
  • The ability to develop relationships and trust
  • Executive level sales skills
  • Self-starter with a positive attitude

Crestcom Franchise Area Representative Program

Different from the single unit Executive Franchise program, the Area Representative program is simply the owning of the rights to develop the Crestcom franchise system within a defined territory. This territory can be a metropolitan area, an entire state, several states, or even a country.

The Area Representative first establishes their own management training franchise within the territory demonstrating proof of concept. Then the Area Representative looks at developing the territory by selling other local candidates on the opportunity to own their own Executive Franchise.

By owning an Area Representative territory, the Area Representative enjoys many benefits of being a franchisor without the burden of having to develop a concept.

Franchisee Success Stories

I consider my time with Crestcom to be the best chapter in my career. Every day I get a chance to make a major impact on future leaders and get a chance to work with great people. As a self-employed business owner, I get to set my own hours and I have the freedom to make my own decisions and set my own direction.” —Harold Goldberg, Crestcom Franchisee

In my twenty years as a very successful Crestcom licensee, I have enjoyed the financial rewards of owning my own business for the first time in my life. But the greatest reward is every month when I hear the kind and complimentary words of those completing their 12-month training. This has been the best twenty years of my life.” — Dave Strathmann, Crestcom Franchisee

We have now owned our Crestcom franchise for 4 years and couldn't be happier. We only wish we did this 20 years ago! Crestcom has allowed us to make a positive impact in people's lives while making a great living. Coming from a corporate background, we are now blessed with the work-life balance we only dreamed of. We work hard, but don't have the stress of a corporate job. Crestcom's support has been outstanding and the head office has created a high-performance environment combined with integrity, kindness, and high-quality training. We highly recommend Crestcom!” — Jennifer Thorne & Mike Houle, Crestcom Franchisees
