Nat Truitt is a passionate franchise consultant who strives to enable others to embrace the American dream of owning their own business. After spending more than 10 years building up four businesses, his personal experience as an entrepreneur and franchisee has validated what he now teaches others – that the fastest path to success for many is through franchise ownership. Nat’s desire to put others on the fast track – by matching their business goals and skills with successful franchises – combined with his knowledge and experience in the franchise industry makes him a valuable asset for anyone who is looking for a franchise business.
With a degree in Theology, it has always been important to Nat to be involved in something that “helps people.” In 2001 he bought his first franchise business – a senior care franchise. He quickly became a regional leader in the organization who initiated the formation and coordination of an owner’s cooperative in the Chicago area. After realizing the real-life advantages of franchising, Nat bought into a medical alarm business in 2003 that was eventually bought by Philips Lifeline.
In 2006, after researching the growing demographics in the pet care industry, Nat started a dog waste removal business that experienced immediate success by harnessing the power of the internet to attract new customers. The business continued to grow and after selling it in 2010, Nat started an internet marketing company that continues to help local businesses and non-profits update their web presence.
Nat now focuses on helping potential franchisees as a franchise consultant. He enjoys assisting others in finding the freedom that he has already found in the franchising model. Nat calls on his broad background in franchising – in addition to his personal experience as an entrepreneur – to help others realize their dream of independent business ownership.
Nat currently lives in the suburbs of Chicago with his wife, Christy, and sons – George and Henry. He enjoys reading, biking, breakfast with friends and traveling.
