Connecting Shopping Centers, Franchise Opportunities, and Entrepreneurs
Welcome to FranchiseConnect.com, the first location-based solution that
connects shopping centers, franchise opportunities and entrepreneurs.
DDR Corp. developed FranchiseConnect to provide entrepreneurs with tools
to research local and site specific franchise opportunities across the
company’s national portfolio of market-dominant shopping centers.
DDR is an owner and manager of over 500 shopping centers with over 1,000
open and operating retail franchise establishments within its
portfolio. DDR leverages its collective knowledge of retail real estate
and successful franchise systems and collaborates with national
franchisors to identify a selection of optimal shopping centers for
potential new franchise locations. When analyzing the company's shopping
center portfolio, FranchiseConnect considers the franchisor's ideal
requirements such as distance from nearest location, trade area
demographics, shopping center venue, tenant mix, competition, space
size, and location within the shopping center. When a location matches
the criteria, the franchisor then provides their approval and necessary
content to publish their franchise opportunity on the site.
An entrepreneur searching FranchiseConnect for local franchise opportunities follows a simple three-step process.
Step 1: Search My Area
Searching for a franchise opportunity is fast and simple on FranchiseConnect.
To search a geographic location, click on Search Locations to launch a
map interface where entrepreneurs can search nearby markets for shopping
centers and related franchise opportunities at each location. Valuable
information is provided about each shopping center and related franchise
to assist with identifying locations and brands that are of interest.
Step 2: Select My Opportunities
Add franchise opportunities of interest to Your Franchise List while navigating through the site.
As entrepreneurs explore their local markets and identify franchises
they have interest in, they can use the My Franchise Opportunities
feature to select and add franchise opportunities to their list. The
list can be viewed and managed any time during the browser session by
clicking on My Franchise List.
Step 3: Request More Information
Request more information from multiple franchisors with a single click.
When a user is ready to request more information about the franchises
they are interested in, they can open the My Franchise List, complete
the short contact form and submit their request to multiple franchisors
with a single click. Shortly thereafter, a representative from each of
the brands selected will be in contact and will provide additional
information about their franchise system.
If you are interested in owning a franchise, search FranchiseConnect for
the best franchise opportunities in your area. Contact us if you are a
franchisor and would like to learn how to promote your franchise
