The qualities of a Quest Franchisee

Investing in a Quest Franchise is not like buying a job – it’s buying into a business and a way of life.

We need our franchisees to be energetic, people-orientated and committed to working within our franchise system framework. It helps if you have previous experience as a successful business owner or have worked within a medium-large corporate enterprise, because running a Quest Franchise is a capital-intensive business.

The journey to becoming a Quest Franchisee

Journey to becoming a franchisee

Our selection process gives both parties the opportunity to fully understand whether the partnership is right for both franchisor and franchisee. This means both parties have the right to terminate the application without reason at any time.

The process involves eight stages and can take up to six months. It includes a series of self-assessment profiles as well as interviews and spending time working within a Quest business.

We make the process so vigorous to ensure the right fit for both parties.

Once they’ve joined the Quest family, new franchisees receive ongoing support during the first year and beyond to ensure they are assisted in all aspects of running the business.

Franchisee support

For over 25 years, Quest has developed and honed a proven structure and formula to support franchisees in successfully running their businesses. This includes sales and operational support, business advice and the more practical operations manual containing every aspect of operating a Quest Franchise Business.

The widespread recognition – and power – of the Quest brand also underpins the support provided to franchisees through national marketing campaigns.

Owning and operating a Quest business is a hands-on commitment

We’ve created a business model underpinned by a system upon which every franchisee depends for their success. But it’s not a business model that is able to support absentee investors.

But the critical key to success lies in the partnership between the Quest business and our franchisees, which must ensure each location is operated by the ‘right’ franchisee – someone prepared to undertake a rigorous assessment process to ensure the partnership will be long-lasting and rewarding for both parties.

'What has been particularly terrific with the business model that Quest has in place is that you don’t need to be an expert in everything. If you need assistance or mentoring, you can tap into the Quest knowledge base – you don’t risk being out on your own.'
