NEW ON FRANDATA WEBSITE - On-line Purchase Option

Press Release
: : 1 June, 2003


FRANdata, the leading supplier of information on and about the U.S. franchise industry, has gone live with a more robust Web site featuring the convenience of on-line purchases.

"FRANdata is excited to offer our customers this enhanced Website, giving them faster, more convenient access to our product line, " said Darrell Johnson, President of FRANdata. "In particular, the online purchase option lets our customers request and receive the information they need, when and where they want it. It is the equivalent of being open 24/7."

Among the customer-friendly enhancements to the site is the ability to purchase and download a complete inventory of Uniform Franchise Offering Circulars (UFOCs). Similar to a securities prospectus, a UFOC provides critical information on the history, operations, and financials of a franchisor.

"I was pleased by how quickly I could download my UFOC purchase," said Patti Frapasella, a paralegal with Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, LLP in Toledo, Ohio. "It made me look good to deliver a 265-page document to my attorney almost immediately following his request for it."

Required by the Federal Trade Commission, UFOCs are used by a wide audience including prospective franchisees, the legal and financial community, and suppliers to the franchise industry. FRANdata customers analyze the UFOCs and the many reports FRANdata develops to discover emerging trends, investigate new market sectors, analyze potential investment opportunities, review risk and loss statistics, or synthesize key information to customize a marketing plan.

FRANdata's expanded product line also includes:

  • Franchise Financials - A detailed analytical summary of franchise companies.
  • Industry Reports - Tailored comparative analyses, where the customer selects the franchisors and research categories, at one reasonable price.
  • New Concept Subscription - Timely access to company and management contact data on the latest franchisors to register with state agencies.
  • Franchise Registry - Cut review time for SBA financing from months to weeks, when a franchise concept is listed on registry.
  • The latest franchisor, franchisee and multi-unit franchisee mailing lists for franchisees and franchisors to use in outbound marketing initiatives.
