Scott Arbuckle’s business experience – and his specific franchise experience -spans over 20 years. This hands on experience combined with strong industry knowledge brings a wealth of expertise as a franchise consultant. Scott enjoys working with prospective candidates who are seeking expert advice and guidance as they evaluate the vast array of franchise opportunities available today.
Scott began his professional career at 22 when he and his father started a successful independent insurance agency without the guidance and systems offered by a franchised business. 6 years later Scott’s first franchised business began in unison with his insurance operation when he added a Liberty Tax franchise. Over the course of the next 6 years, Scott would add 4 additional Liberty locations as well as becoming an Area Developer for Liberty Tax. In this role, Scott was responsible for the addition of 20 Liberty locations.
In 2004, Scott was invited by Liberty Tax to assume the role of Director of Franchise Development at the corporate headquarters. In this role and under Scott’s leadership Liberty added over 1000 franchise locations. As Liberty continued to grow, Scott transitioned to the operations department and assumed the role of Assistant Vice President of Operations responsible for 14 states, 300 franchisees operating over 500 locations.
In 2007, Scott left the comforts of the corporate environment to pursue work with other franchise companies through a consulting role offering franchise sales and operational expertise. Today, Scott is thankful that this work led him to FranChoice as a franchise consultant and the chance to help others achieve their goals of business ownership. He enjoys helping people determine what is important to them, and the task of finding a good match in the franchise industry. Scott and his family reside in Naples Florida. In Scott’s free time, he is an avid golfer and enjoys spending time with friends and family in and around the water. He can be reached at SArbuckle@FranChoice.com or 239.285.0814.
