Livonia-based EOS Worldwide, which offers concepts and tools designed to help entrepreneurs get their businesses off the ground, has announced it is transitioning its global business to a custom-tailored franchise model. EOS Worldwide Franchising is now selling U.S. franchises in all states, territories, and key international markets, with plans to launch by the end of 2021.
The company offers its Entrepreneurial Operating System, which helps entrepreneurs focus their vision, build a healthy leadership team, and build traction toward progress. The company says the franchise model emerged as the best option to serve the company’s more than 400 global EOS implementers and more than 10,000 customers.
Under the new system, the company will consolidate more than 700 brands into one, and all EOS implementers will operate under the EOS Worldwide name while maintaining their own pricing, credentials, and teaching, coaching, and facilitation styles. EOS will not sell territories or require franchisees to pay revenue-based royalties.
“We made this move for one simple reason: to better serve a global entrepreneurial community whose success is more important today than ever before,” says Kelly Knight president and integrator of EOS Worldwide.
“The EOS community can now speak with one voice. We can better standardize and deliver the power of EOS, which has transformed millions of lives since we launched in 2008 with only eight EOS implementers. And we now have a better path to a more scalable and rewarding independent business for entrepreneurs around the world.”
The new model will offer EOS users greater support, training, content, revenue-sharing opportunities, business development capabilities, facilitation coaching, marketplace clarity, and differentiation. It will offer instant credibility and brand recognition, helping users scale their businesses and save on custom-built brands and websites.
“We’re determined to redefine what a franchise can be as it relates to support, independence, and revenue creation,” Knight says. “As countries emerge from this devastating pandemic and begin the work of rebuilding economies, their local businesses need EOS and ‘the entrepreneurs behind the entrepreneurs’ on their side.”
