Andrew Nieb has learned many lessons about business ownership from his more than a decade of experience as an entrepreneur. The most important lesson being the immense power one can create when they decide to make their dreams of owning their own business come true. Now, as a franchise consultant, he’s able to pass along that wisdom and help others achieve their personal goals and dreams.
Raised in an entrepreneurial family, Andrew learned the impact of reaching for a dream. Andrew’s family business won the contract to service the historic Denver Ski Train – a central tourism attraction for the Colorado ski industry. With the capacity to transport nearly 750 mountain-bound passengers a day, the contract required a tremendous commitment and flexibility from Andrew’s entire staff. The duties provided for the Ski Train included janitorial services, catering, staffing assistance for mechanical operations and staffing for the train car attendants. The decision to take on the Ski Train changed Andrew’s life. Andrew grew to become the company’s Operations Manager and eventually President of the company. During Andrew’s tenure, the business grew steadily and added more clients and staff around Denver and the Northern Colorado region.
As Andrew’s business grew, so did his interest in reaching out and helping others grow their own successful businesses. In 2009, Andrew joined a prestigious small business funding team, serving as the Director of Business Development. He also created his own niche as a Senior Manager for specialized accounts pertaining to franchise finance, while maintaining a sharp focus on strategic growth. Andrew oversaw the firm’s day-to-day operations, which included sales, client support and implementing new processes to accommodate the company’s accelerated growth.
In 2012, Andrew joined FranChoice. Andrew’s career gives him a unique perspective when helping new franchise owners step forward to achieve their dreams. Having experienced the small business owner’s role, Andrew understands how the power of a franchise can magnify the power of each franchisee.
Today, Andrew puts his years of experience as an entrepreneur, in small business funding and in the world of franchising into helping people step into their power and change their lives. Andrew lives in Denver, Colorado with his wife, two daughters and the family’s two dogs. Andrew can be reached at ANieb@FranChoice.com or by calling 877-725-5394.
