Business Owner: Our Experience Working With a Franchisee

REALIZE the Possibilities. DESIGN Your Reality. INFLUENCE Your Life & Community.


JP Architects, Ltd. provides architectural design services for a franchisee of a nationwide franchise. Here's a look into this relationship.


The franchisee reached out to JP Architects, Ltd. when they were searching for a local architectural partner to take their project across the finish line. So what were we responsible for?


We were responsible for adapting the proposed program to the local location in Evergreen Park, IL and drafting permit and bid ready construction documents for the client. This required communication with the Evergreen Park Building Department to ensure designs accounted for all local, state and federal building and zoning requirements. Additionally, we provided construction administration services to ensure the project ran smoothly and on the proposed timeline. Most importantly, this franchisee had a local design professional to conduct impromptu in-person site visits or call to address specific design questions.


An added value that we provided this client:


  1. At JP Architects, Ltd. we systematize all info and branding so that future build-outs are more cost-effective and design is streamlined.



This added value was especially useful to this franchisee because he had aspirations of opening more than one location. When it came time to open his second location, the process moved much faster, and we were able to easily produce accurate permit and bid ready construction documents for the new location. Furthermore, our client introduced us to another franchisee, and we were able to utilize this systemized information for that situation.


So to bring this to a close...We share this experience to portray the value of employing the services of a local architectural firm for your franchise build-out or new construction. Simply put, we provide solutions that bring your vision and dream into reality.


The most important piece of information from this first-hand account...At JP Architects, Ltd. we understand the specific design challenges that accompany a franchise build-out. We implement solutions that move you closer to the finish line, faster. We're by your side throughout construction and are local which means we're available to answer questions and quickly arrive on site, if necessary.
