Mason Copeland knows franchising well, as his diverse, 30+ year background includes a wealth of experience as a franchisor, and as a multi-unit franchisee. Since 2004 he has enjoyed helping thousands of franchise candidates who are looking for thoughtful, objective advice as they evaluate the many opportunities available in franchising today. Mason prides himself on helping individuals find a perfect match in the areas of franchising that best compliment their personalities, passions and skills, while still allowing them to attain the goals and dreams.
After completing his Bachelor of Commerce studies at Carleton University, Mr. Copeland co-founded a video game retail concept called Microplay in 1985. In 1993, with the experience of having opened six successful locations, Mason and his partner began aggressively franchising the concept and by February of 1996 they had grown to over 160 franchises across North America.
Mason has been involved in every aspect of franchise management from strategic planning to franchisee training, developing franchise agreements, establishing proper disclosure and compliance systems, construction and build-out, supplier relations, systems and manuals development, franchise marketing, ongoing support, and franchisee relations.
