Over the years, FranChoice has helped thousands of people realize their dreams and become successful franchise owners. Following is a sampling of the feedback we have received from past candidates who have utilized FranChoice's services while on their path to business ownership:
I worked closely with my consultant over the course of several months as he guided me through the franchise process and finding the right fit for me. He was a fantastic resource as he knows franchising thoroughly, worked in franchising extensively before becoming a consultant, and is very skilled at picking out what's important to the individual he is working with. Most of all, his approach provided great credibility to the franchise concept for me in that I always felt that he was advising me versus selling a franchise to me. I highly recommend FranChoice to anyone considering entering the world of franchising.

I just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks again for all your help in locating the perfect franchise opportunity. With the parameters that I gave you I thought it would next to impossible for you to find a franchise for me, but instead you showed me three. With the help of your excellent discovery process, it became clear what franchise I should buy. It has been almost three years now and I’m pleased to say that I am still enjoying every minute of building my business. I remember during due-diligence you said that you look to match Top Ten owners. I am proud to say that I am currently #1 in the company!

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the many courtesies you have extended to me over that last months in assisting me with my future plans. This was a very frustrating time for me, with all the uncertainties I had to consider. Your expertise, advice and recommendations were so valuable; taking my lead from you is the best thing I ever did. I am very impressed with my chosen franchise and I feel that this is the key to the door for a bright, prosperous future. Your assistance in this matter proved invaluable and I want you to know that it has been a privilege to work with such a fine individual.

I had the pleasure of working with a consultant at FranChoice in early 2007, two weeks after I had been laid off from an executive position and was in a period of transition in my life. I was referred by someone he worked with a year before - who had great things to say about the franchise she bought, and extraordinary things to say about her experience with this consultant.
Everything I had heard about my FranChoice consultant was true. He was incredibly sensitive to the emotional issues caused by leaving the only life I knew - working for someone else - and helped me and my wife define our vision of what our life could be like if we took the path of owning our own business. He spent about 2 hours with us, covering my entire professional career, what I liked and disliked about my various jobs, what skills I have, what my management abilities are, the kinds of customers I would prefer to have and much more. He also asked detailed questions about what I wanted to get out of owning my own business (financial return, ability to expand, etc.) and what I was willing to give up - or not give up - in return (time with family, financial risk, etc.)
Within two days, our consultant researched several franchises that met our criteria. Over the course of three weeks, he guided us patiently through the process of investigating each franchise - and, week by week, we eliminated franchises that weren't quite right. We ended up with a franchise that we ultimately bought - it reflects everything we talked about with our consultant, and immediately felt like we "fit like a glove" with the franchisor and the community of existing franchisees. My wife and I are looking forward to many years of success with our franchise, and to the new life we will be creating as a result of being in business for ourselves.
During the entire process, our consultant was available whenever we needed him - both for information and moral support. He is patient, sensitive, warm and professional. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the franchising industry, and has a very effective approach to finding the right franchise for people. He has a system in place to make sure the process always moves ahead - without making people feel rushed or pressured to make a decision. He treated us like individuals, and I always felt that he put our well-being first.

I was so afraid to take the plunge but your encouragement got me over the hump. You helped me believe in my abilities and potential. You took the time to get to know me, most astutely read my personality traits and assisted me in ultimately choosing to open the franchise of my dreams. Each day brings a new experience. Naturally, there are days when I say to myself, "What on earth have you done?" As you know, I left a secure job I had for some 23 years, opting to start anew. I don't regret my decision - I celebrate it each day. Owning a business is challenging, exciting and scary all at the same time. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I have never been more content.

I have just finished signing my first ever franchise agreement. Although I have been in corporate business for over 25 years, I am a complete rookie when it comes to the franchise concept. Luckily, I came across FranChoice and a great consultant who in a very methodical / structured fashion helped me work through the process. There are many issues surrounding a franchise choice / decision and I knew I needed help finding just the “right” franchise for me and my situation. My consultant was a great help to me and I’d recommend FranChoice to anyone looking for this guidance.

I was already working with another franchise broker from another firm when I came into contact with a consultant from FranChoice, and the difference between the two was dramatic. The other consultant was a nice enough person but was "selling me" more than consulting with me. I felt an immediate connection when talking to the FranChoice consultant and could tell instantly she was much more knowledgeable about the franchising business. She really listened to what I was looking for and took the time to understand who I am and what I wanted out of life - not just a business. I ended up liking all of the options she presented me with and could have chosen any of them - I truly felt like I had quality choices rather than having to settle for just the "best available option." My FranChoice consultant stayed in touch with me throughout and was a pleasure to work with. I'd work with her again in a heartbeat and would recommend her to anyone looking to find the best possible match for them.

I had recently decided to leave my 30-year career as a librarian to finally do something that I really loved. When I contacted Franchoice, I was lucky enough to have an excellent consultant respond to my inquiry. He walked me through the process of discovering my true calling in life. He helped me recognize my entrepreneurial side, and together we found a great business which I have owned now for about a year and a half. Buying this franchise has been the best decision I ever made. Every morning I wake up excited to see what the day will bring. No longer do I have migraine headaches from working! I am now one of those people who say, "I can't believe I get paid to do something I love so much."
My consultant shared his own experiences with me and encouraged me as a mentor, coach and friend. I will always be grateful for his support and unflagging enthusiasm that took me from being a stressed employee to becoming a happy and fulfilled business owner.

Thank you again for all of your assistance. When I first started to look into franchising, I was overwhelmed at all the choices and soon started to doubt that I would do anything. You helped clear the clouds and educated me on the world of franchising. Thanks to you I couldn't be happier with the support and training the franchisor has provided. I am absolutely positive that this will be a successful business for Paula and me.
Thanks again and please feel free to send anyone to me that would like a referral for your services.
