Chalk up another first for virtual reality.
On Thursday, The Franchise Consulting Company, Inc. — a global leader in franchise buying and education — announced that it will launch the world’s first Virtual Reality platform dedicated to helping consumers purchase a franchise.
The platform is hailed as a breakthrough for entrepreneurs shopping for franchise investments, as well as for franchisors offering business opportunities, as it allows prospective buyers to experience a realistic inside tour of locations – without having to get in a car or on a plane.
“To be officially revealed at the “Discover A New World Conference” in Cancun, the platform, named TheFCCVR was designed from the ground up to deliver gorgeous, immersive virtual reality experiences to those interested in purchasing a franchise,” a provided statement explains.
We’re told that the company plans to give away 10,000 Free VR Headsets to anyone who is seriously interested in owning a franchise.
Nick Neonakis, CEO of The Franchise Consulting Company, Inc. and TheFCCVR, said the challenge many buyers have is they are only viewing a potential business online, or they have to travel to go see what a location looks like.
The VR Headsets allow anyone interested in business ownership to take an immersive tour of dozens of quality franchise businesses – from the comfort of their own home.
“Now you can actually go behind the counter and see what it’s like from an owner’s perspective,” said Neonakis, author of #1 Amazon bestseller The Franchise MBA.
