The Discovery Process

This comprehensive process is designed to facilitate your exploration of our franchise opportunity and our evaluation of your candidacy.

Phase One
Complete the IMS Request for Consideration questionnaire
We just need to understand a little about you and your plans for owning an IMS franchise.

Phase Two
Franchise Team Interview
After the form is submitted, the IMS Franchise team will contact you and begin the Q & A process
Phase Three
IMS Franchise Application Agreement
There is plenty of time to contact other franchisees and IMS Regional Managers to inquire into their operational experiences. Once you are ready and committed to own your own IMS Franchise, the next step is to complete the franchise application agreement. After completion, the application is handed over to our Franchise Sales Director for review with the Franchise Review Committee
Phase Four
Franchise Disclosure and Due Diligence
You will meet with our Franchise Sales Director and CEO face-to-face at the Corporate Office in New Berlin, WI. Included is a tour of the Corporate Office including:
  • The operation floor for in-house trade brokers
  • IMS Travel, Media, and Corporate Trade Divisions
  • Information Technology and Website Development Departments
  • Legal team and Collections Department
  • General accounting
When you are ready to move forward, we will provide you with our Franchise Disclosure Document (FDD). This explains the IMS franchise in detail including the franchise agreement that you sign in order to become an IMS franchise partner. As required by the Federal Trade Commission, you’ll have a minimum of 14 days to review the document and conduct your due diligence
Phase Five
Signing the Franchise agreement and Franchise Disclosure Document and paying the Franchise fee
Once your application agreement is approved, you will be sent the franchise agreements for signature. At that time, a check will be sent along with the signed agreement to IMS.
Phase Six

Prepare for your next steps to success as an IMS Franchise owner!
