Cory Hughes - Franchise Consultant

Cory Hughes is an accomplished veteran in the franchise industry whose experience in every facet of franchising provides him with the unique ability to effectively guide people down the path to business ownership to achieve their dreams.

Prior to starting his franchise career, Cory worked in corporate America having held various management positions within the financial services industry.  While working his way up the corporate ladder, he grew tired of the constraints and uncertainty of corporate life.  

Cory decided to start his franchise career in the early 2000’s as one of the first Liberty Tax Service franchisees in Kansas City, MO.  He finished his first year in franchising as the #1 new franchisee in the Liberty Tax system having set a record for the most customers served by a new franchisee, a record that still stands today.  From there Cory seized the opportunity to expand his franchise holdings further by becoming an Area Developer with Liberty Tax, which eventually he grew to over 75 locations.    

By 2006, Liberty Tax corporate took notice and invited Cory to join the senior executive team. Serving as the Asst. VP of Franchise Operation in the U.S. & Canada, he led the franchise operations, training, company store, site selection and franchise systems business units.  During his time in this leadership role the franchise system flourished by adding over 2,000 new franchisees to become one of the fastest growing franchise systems in the country.  

After a successful run as a senior franchise executive, Cory turned his focus back to overseeing his Liberty Tax franchise holdings while also deciding to add to his franchise portfolio by joining a second national leading franchise system as a franchisee.  

Today, Cory is excited to have the opportunity to leverage his franchise experience as a franchise consultant with FranChoice to help people realize the rewarding freedom of business ownership.  Knowing how important it is to partner with the right franchise company, he is driven to help people identify the ideal opportunity that matches everything they want in a business.  

Cory currently lives with his wife Jill and their 4 children in the Kansas City area.  He enjoys staying active in sports and having the ability to spend time with his family and friends.
