“It is easy to forget that Raintree is a separate business. They are so involved in the success of our business that we think of them as a core part of our Corporate team. Our biggest fear when bringing on an outside development team was maintaining our culture, and I can honestly say that the Raintree team is just as obsessed with our culture as we are! We have never once regretted our decision to bring them into our Pack.
We’ve had a dream about what this brand could be for almost 40 years. And thanks to the last few years of being partnered with Raintree, we are realizing that even our wildest dreams weren’t quite big enough. This experience is truly life-changing.”

“Raintree brings us a truly insane amount of new Owners each year.
But not just any ‘buyer’…they bring perfect fits.
Raintree has been the key to most, if not all, of Footprints’ national growth…Our model is sound and our staff is fantastic, but it’s Raintree that gives us the opportunity to get in front of people to share the model and staff. Without them, we wouldn’t be where we are today. We’re so excited to continue this journey with Raintree for years to come.”

“Meeting the team was like a breath of fresh air. They are not only professional and good at what they do, but they’re also smart and innovative and ahead of the curve.
Raintree knows how to allocate budgets to maximize results, and there is always someone on their team who has a recommendation for improving the many aspects of our business, from legal to marketing and operations. It’s refreshing to have professional, honest, and down-to-earth feedback and guidance even if this guidance comes at the cost of a lead, or of a short-term sales goal.
Raintree fully follows through on the position that they are not just to sell franchises; it’s to grow a healthy brand. They see the bigger picture and are invested in it. And sometimes that means bypassing or turning down an opportunity for the greater, longer-term good.
They are partners. Advisors. Franchisees of ours. And most importantly, they are friends.”

“Raintree fully invested themselves into the Voodoo Brewing brand from the onset. The team flew out here before we were even fully engaged. The level of excitement and enthusiasm they have for the brand is invigorating and has only driven our team to work “harder, better, faster, smarter”.
The team at Raintree has harnessed the true essence of what Voodoo Brewing is all about and continues to develop new opportunities that are well suited to grow the brand intelligently and within our vision.
Raintree has built a “rocket ship” out of our brand with lead generation and closings that has surpassed our wildest expectations.
The best part is the coaching we’ve received on the operational side. Even before investing as Franchisors, Raintree proactively coached us and how to build a sustainable franchise owner support infrastructure. Life is good and we couldn’t be more excited.”

“Raintree is best in class. They are very selective in who they take on as clients but once they do, you can feel their passion and commitment align with ours. The Raintree team completely immersed themselves into our brand to get a full understanding of our concept, mission and vision and where we want to grow.
They have an innovative team with an expert from each department to design, market and promote our brand to the right people. We didn’t have any franchises open before partnering with Raintree. Our initial goal was six deals signed the first year and we ended up signing 38.
They overperform while maintaining the quality of our brand and finding the right partners to grow our brand.”

“We were frustrated with our Franchise Development progress, despite having wildly successful operations. So when we decided to “outsource” our Franchise Development, we still wanted to be heavily involved in the overall process, and make all of the final decisions on potential franchisees.
We interviewed several FSOs prior to Raintree, but felt over-promised, underwhelmed culturally, and even bullied about the franchisee approval process.
Raintree was a breath of fresh air, and fully aligned culturally with our team on our vision of being selective with candidates and only bringing strong franchisees into our system. They’re honest, insightful, exhortative, and at the base of it all, just good people.”
