Meg Schmitz - Franchise Consultant

Meg Schmitz brings enthusiasm and organization to the process of navigating the maze of franchise ownership. You wouldn’t want to climb the Himalayas without a guide, so why sort through 3500 franchises alone? As a franchise veteran with 20 years of experience as a multi-unit owner and consultant, three years on the inside of a national service franchise, and a history of active listening, Meg is your expert guide to finding the business of your dreams, and finding just the right “encore” to your career.

Meg’s deep knowledge of franchising started in the early 1990s, when she opened the first of five Great Clips salons in the Chicago area. As the president of the Chicago area owners’ co-op and liaison to the corporate executive staff, Meg saw first-hand how others struggled because they bought a franchise that wasn’t the best fit. Now, after 10 years as a franchise consultant, Meg has helped hundreds of people determine whether business ownership, and especially franchising, is the right vehicle for their personal and financial success.

With a degree in Counseling Psychology and work as a certified Mediator and hospice volunteer, Meg has become attuned to the importance of asking the right questions and listening, which allows her candidates to hone their questions and concerns about business ownership into a refined investigation. Working closely with you, Meg will assess YOUR skill sets, expectations, tolerances, and goals in order to lead you to the best business opportunity for you and for your family.
