Franchise Development Program™

Powered by American Development Partners®

At American Development Partners®, we truly believe that your success is our success. This is one of the company’s core principles and what guides our business practices. American Development Partners has a long history of simplifying and navigating the complicated road map of successful franchise concepts to single-tenant built-to-suit partners. Over the last 25 years we realized:


Our Built to Suit financial partners are looking for a long-term return on their investment over and above the excellent return they are getting on their rent.


We also have many clients who would like to make an investment and own part of a national or regional franchise allowing them to participate in the profits but do not want to be responsible for the day-to-day operations.


Creating opportunities to be a part of the “Franchise Development Program™” where the executive management and operations team not only invest their own money into the concept the executive management and operations team executes the building lease and secures the franchise rights.

How Does the Model Work?

A. “Franchise Development Program™” will only pursue franchise opportunities where they can do ten (10) units or more. This allows for a significant Return on Investment and attracts the very best executive management team.


D. “Franchise Development Program™” is approved

E. American Development Partners® secures financing through a financial Built to Suit partner for the construction and development of a free-standing single-tenant building. 


F. “Franchise Development Program™” establishes an operating entity that the equity will be contributed to. 

Equity Partners Financial Responsibility


I. If there is a need for additional capital over the equity contribution that American Development Partners® has made the equity partners will cover this. (Example: if an operator uses the $100,000.00 equity infusion American 

Development Partners invest and the operation needs an additional $15,000.00 the equity partner(s) would be responsible for this.

J. Ownership to be determined based on equity contribution. 

B. National Concept is identified – American Development Partners has long-standing relationships with emerging, regional, and national brands. We identify the business opportunity and create a business opportunity overview presentation. 

C. Executive Management Team fills out franchise paperwork to secure the franchise rights and will participate in any discovery days etc. to get to understand the franchise, the culture, and the opportunity.


G. Equity Partners make their equity contribution to the operating entity. This money will cover the deposit that is paid to the franchisor to secure the franchise opportunity and the remaining capital will be left in the operating account to fund initial training of staff, relocation of staff, and operational needs.

H. American Development Partners® commits to investing 100% of their development fee into the operating entity (For example purposes: If American Development Partners is paid a development fee of $100,000.00 per unit and we develop 5 units ADP will invest $500,000.00 into the project). American Development Partners will make their equity contribution of $100,000.00 per unit upon the Certificate of Occupancy being issued at each location. This is the total exposure American Development Partners® has on the project. 

American Development Partners® understands that individuals are investing their hard-earned money, but unlike in typical consulting models or business broker opportunities, American Development Partners is investing our money right next to yours.


This is an absolutely unique model championed by American Development Partners®. When you have a development partner who will invest their capital into projects, you can have confidence that we are all equally working to ensure business success.
