"We retained Davier Consultants's services as Franchise Consultants to assist us in structuring our North American franchise strategy. At that point, Yves Rocher was operating over 70 corporate stores in 3 provinces.

The objective was to determine our model in order to expand all over Canada and double the number of locations over the next few years. The second part of the consulting mandate was to help us in determining how to franchise the major portion of our existing stores.

Davier accomplished his initial mandate with great success and guided our management through the entire process: financial, marketing, legal and human resources considerations. Our plan was very well received and accepted by our corporate head office in France.

Thereafter, Davier Consultants was given the mandate to recruit franchisees for both our corporate and future Canadian franchised stores and to continue providing guidance and support to our management team.

In 2010, Michel Gagnon successfully recruited 15 candidates including new franchisees for new stores in Alberta and Nova Scotia and new candidates for some of our corporate units in Quebec. We even recruited five of our best store managers to become successful franchisees. In 2011, our objectives are to franchise 20 stores and we are confident that Davier Consultants lead by Mr. Gagnon will accomplish that goal. In future years, Davier will be an integral part of our growth strategy.

In December 2010, we met with all our new franchisees to conduct a review of our process at this point. All of our new franchisees, without exception, had very positive comments about Mr. Gagnon’s work, his professionalism, caring and support through the initial process.

At this time, franchised sales have increased by an average of 6% over the same stores which were corporately owned before.

We highly recommend Davier Consultants to any company interested in converting their business to a Franchise system."

"Davier Consultants has been involved in securing external associate candidates for our firm for the last few years. The scope of his work is National and involves becoming familiar with specific business plans for each market selected… These business opportunities typically require a candidate initial investment of 1-2m$ to 3-0m$…. Mr Gagnon remains involved with the preferred candidates throughout this process and has offered many of the prospects his expertise in the area of business plan development.

Mr Gagnon has handled his responsibilities in a very professional manner, he understands the complexities of the various business cases and is able to explain to persons outside the business in a manner that generates interest, understanding and commitment. He has added value to the entire process by recommending ongoing enhancements.

I see Michel as a mature professional fully committed to excellence and a pleasure to work with."

"La présente est pour confirmer le support et le développement que nous apporte Michel Gagnon. Nous travaillons avec M. Gagnon depuis près de deux ans. Il a su depuis, nous aider à travailler grâce à une gestion de budget, de dépenses et de revenus, où tous les niveaux de direction ont pu s'inscrire dans la démarche du budget. M. Michel Gagnon a réussi à nous faire travailler avec un conseil d'administration, et me seconder dans la démarche de devenir une présidente directrice générale. Je suis à l'emploi de Médicus depuis 25 ans, cette compagnie familiale fut fondée en 1958 par mon père et la gestion a été partagée à travers le temps par ma cousine, et mon frère, mon père étant toujours actif dans l'entreprise.

Mon père est un grand entrepreneur, mais la structure autour de lui a augmenté et se doit d'avoir un contrôle et un partage des responsabilités. M.Gagnon est venu nous aider au tout début pour la restructuration de l'entreprise dans le but de créer un système de franchise. Pour ce faire, il a initié un travail de gestion par entité de coûts et de revenus. Il a mis en place un outil, le budget, pour arriver à conscientiser l'entreprise des coûts et revenus spécifiques à chacune de nos activités. Il nous aide à refaire l'organigramme, et à nous conseiller à travers différentes entrevues, du choix de notre personnel de direction. Il a une vision de notre avenir et nous aide à le mettre sur le droit chemin.

Grâce à son intervention, il permet un virage optimal en travaillant avec mon père, moi et l'entreprise. Il supporte le développement de chacune des entités et voit à la formation du personnel de comptabilité et fonction de ses analyses. Il s'assure que tout le personnel qui compose le budget soit au connaissant de leur responsabilité et les défend auprès du C.A.

C'est d'avoir plusieurs as dans notre main que de faire équipe avec Michel Gagnon. Merci sincèrement pour toute cette belle implication."
