“I’d like to thank you in advance for allowing me to share in one of the most rewarding and exciting adventures you will ever embark upon… franchise ownership! My core belief in franchising is simple and straight forward as embodied by the first line of a mission statement I wrote as CEO of a franchise chain in 2008… “We operate under the firm belief that our success relies entirely upon the success of our franchise partners…”. In other words, my passion lies in helping you achieve the greatest level of satisfaction and success through finding your perfect franchise match… and becoming good friends in the process.”
Bob Bernotas possesses a unique expert perspective and insight having been on both sides of franchising (franchisee and franchisor) and in multiple capacities since 1986. Bob’s franchise experience ranges from multi-unit franchisee owner with two different franchise systems, master franchisee, VP of Franchise Sales/Development and CEO of a franchise chain. In 1989 Bob was elected president of the owner’s association and Advertising Council of a 700 unit chain. Bob has built companies from the ground up and guided others through restructure and expansion.
Navigating through the snares and pitfalls of investigating many franchise companies is a daunting task to say the least. Bob’s franchise skill-set and expertise qualifies him to help you find your piece of the American dream. Through Bob’s efforts, and the fail-safe system that the franchise experts at FranChoice have perfected over many years, Bob is able to help you conduct a thorough and efficient investigation.
Bob lives on ten acres 40 minutes west of Philadelphia, PA with his five children (four girls and a boy) ranging in age from 12 to 20, along with their two dogs. Bob was a D-1 scholarship track athlete and is so proud of his children as they are all student athletes following a similar path. Bob’s passion is attending as many of his kids track meets as possible.
