YFS prefers to work with engaging, forward thinking, creative, visionary brand leadership. We seek to partner with brands who are ready to take counsel, respect their franchisees, treat vendors as strategic partners and employees with dignity and respect.

A Team of Professionals At Your Service

While YFS first began by offering franchise candidate recruitment services, it quickly became apparent that many new and established brands needed help with operations, marketing and setting up an internal structure designed to effectively recruit, train and provide ongoing support to new franchisees. As a result, we brought together a team of professionals with vast experience in franchise operations, marketing, public relations, and real estate to work collaboratively with our candidate development team.
