Family Financial Centers is the "Quantum Leap" Forward in the Evolution of the Alternative Financial Service Center.
Located in attractive suburban centers, Family Financial Centers have the systems, ambience and professionalism of a traditional bank. FFC offers a full array of financial services including check cashing, money orders, wire transfer, tax preparation services and short-term consumer loans.
Family Financial Centers is committed to raising the standard for alternative financial service providers both for product offerings and the way they are delivered to the market. Our centers are conveniently located to our customer’s home or work. We are fully automated with systems that keep the average transaction time to just a few minutes. This allows our customer to have all of their financial needs taken care of conveniently and efficiently, in an environment that is upbeat, professional and friendly.
Family Financial Centers (FFC) Franchise was developed to address the market opportunity created by the loss of neighborhood branch banks and the sub-standard response by current alternative financial service providers. FAMILY FINANCIAL CENTERS, unlike the traditional check cashing and payday loan companies, are not located in the "war zones" and poorer parts of town. FFC is positioned in the first and second tier suburbs where the middle-income customer has firmly established himself and is looking for a provider that can give him the ambience and professional service of a local bank, but in a manner that meets his specific needs. FFC stores are located in attractive suburban strip centers that are convenient to the customer’s home or work. The store presentation is a bank-like setting with the latest computer systems and transactional software that allow for quick and efficient service, and security systems that are state of the art but don’t sacrifice customer contact and owner comfort. The franchise marketing programs promote a full menu of financial products to the communities they are serving.
Because most of the industry is not aware of or committed to the fundamentals of branding, marketing, and automated systems, FFC franchisees can exploit these areas as its competitive advantage to attract and build market share with a consumer base that is eager for a quality service provider. Additionally, FFC will be very active in developing new products and services that its franchisees can then market to their existing customer base, further cementing that relationship and differentiating the FFC brand from the rest of the pack. Finally, and perhaps most importantly, franchisees have an experienced corporate management team with a support staff that can properly set up their stores and provide the training they need to launch their businesses, and work with them on an ongoing basis to successfully build those businesses.
