Statement of Franchisee Annual Projected Revenues
- The following are statements of annual projected revenues for TES Franchised Businesses. These projections have been calculated based on the experience of TES in the business and placement coaching industry, including the experience of its franchisees and staff, as well as industry standards.
- There are three projections based on a set number of clients engaged by one coach in each month for business coaching and the number of placement fees received by one coach for franchise placement coaching. In the franchisor’s experience in the franchise placement and business coaching industry, it believes that the calculations reasonably reflect attainable levels of revenue.
- The franchisor has created projections that reflect varying degrees of client development activity and increasing experience in the industry. The charts that follow reflect five years of projected revenue.
- The franchisor has calculated these numbers based on the low end of its suggested monthly coaching billing rate and the industry average length of coaching engagements for business clients. It has factored longer terms for coaching engagements as the coach develops greater confidence and experience.
- For placement coaching clients, it has applied TES’s Average Gross Placement Fee to Year 5 and decreased the Average Gross Placement Fee each previous year 4 through 1. All calculations for placement coaching are at or below the average placement fee rate.
