Prior to attending Discovery Day, the prospective franchise has normally completed all the due diligence required to know that this is a proven franchise system that fits their objectives.

It also signals that the franchisor is serious about offering the prospective franchise the opportunity to join the community of franchisees. Usually a person is not invited unless franchise development reps have screened the applicant’s credit history and background and have pre-approved the candidate for the franchise.
