My unique consultation process is based on many years of proven success in helping entrepreneurs identify the right franchise opportunities to match their criteria and then to educate, support and guide them through the investigation process. Plenty of technical explanations, support and coaching are provided to assist you through your customized process as much as needed to support your decision.
I am not a sales agent for any brand or franchise. There are no fees or charges for my services and it does not increase your franchise cost to use a consultant. I am compensated similarly to an executive recruiter or real estate agent—I’m paid by the franchisor only if you decide a brand is your perfect franchise and sign a franchise agreement. My goal is to build a positive long term relationship with you and make sure you are matched to the perfect franchise brand for you.
