Franchise Gator, it can be an excellent resource for franchisors that are looking to get leads to their franchise system. However, if you’re a franchise buyer, the selection of franchises currently on Franchise Gator is pretty slim. They claim to be the largest directory of franchise and business opportunities on the internet. And that they work with the big guys.
You’ve heard of the new guys everyone’s gonna be talking about soon. And it can be a one-stop shop for business ownership information and research. And we don’t find that true at Vetted Biz.
They list a very small percentage of the franchises currently available in the United States. And a lot of the businesses on their franchise site are actually business opportunities. They’re not franchises and they’re top 100 franchise list of 2022.
The first four entries are not franchises. You have a System Centric basing Amazon ecommerce support, Lending Network. It’s different learning opportunities. HealthyYOU Vending, it’s a vending machine license opportunity. And then you also have an opportunity Time To Eat Delivery, which I spent 20 minutes trying to figure out what this business does.
And I don’t know if it competes directed with DoorDash, Uber Eats. They have some positive reviews. I don’t know who those are leaving the review if they’re actually owner operators and they’re running this delivery food service.
But, trust me, I would not wanna start a business and compete with Uber Eats and all that money they’re raising in Silicon Valley. So, as an aside, if you know what Time To Eat Delivery does, leave in the comments section. I’m curious. I could not understand, I just saw that it wasn’t a franchise, no royalty, and that you own 100% of the business.
What Franchise Gator has is a similar issue with bizbuysellfranchise.com. And these franchise portals where a lot of bad franchises need to advertise. And the best franchise opportunities, some of the most successful.
I’ve done prior videos on like Jersey Mike’s, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Crumbl Cookies, you don’t see those franchises on franchise portals. They don’t need to pay for franchise leads. They have so many people reach out to them directly through current franchisees.
The franchisors that are listing on these pay-to-play sites, you have to be a little on the edge about it because why are they pushing so hard for prospective franchisees. Why can’t they get it organically or through franchise consultants, or through some other means, why are they doing it through an online portal?
Where that SBA Franchise Directory has about 7,000 franchises available in the United States, Vetted Biz has a pretty good number of those franchises up on our website. Franchise Gator has just about 200 on their franchises for sale list.
And those 200, a lot of them aren’t even franchises. It’s like become a business consultant for X and Y industry, pay a 30K fee to start. And I saw a few of the business opportunities list in like for online casinos. Sadly, someone complained recently to the FTC January 31, 2022 out to Utah that he found this online casino franchise opportunity, onlinecasinobookie.com through Franchise Gator, paid the 20K. And was promised a website, and didn’t really get the support.
