Theresa’s diverse experience in business and franchising has given her the expertise to carefully guide entrepreneurs in their sometimes-difficult path of choosing the best franchise for them.
For 8 years Ms. Los managed a multi-million dollar worldwide tour company, which gave her extensive experience in management, finance, sales, and marketing. Her love of travel brought her into the franchising arena in 1996 when she joined Uniglobe Travel as a Franchise Advisor, becoming a top performer early on. Theresa moved into the role of Manager of Business Development when she moved from New England to Georgia. Here she worked directly with franchisees in the Northeast and Southeast regions to help them achieve their business goals. She advised them in areas of staffing, marketing, and budgeting for growth. Theresa conducted regular regional meetings with franchisees, trained owners and employees in technology, customer relations, and franchise “best practices”. Her main focus prior to moving back into sales as an Area Developer with Uniglobe was “hand holding” the new franchisees for a smooth transition into ownership.
Ms. Los was recruited in 2000 to spearhead the franchise sales department of a brand new technology franchise. With her strong sales and management skills, and the love of the internet motivating her, she soon became the national leader in franchise sales, and helped build a very successful franchise organization. She assisted in developing internal processes, and trained new franchisees in technology, sales, and marketing.
Today, Theresa utilizes the skills that she has acquired over the years to help individuals find a perfect match in the franchising arena that compliments their own skills and allow them to achieve their goals. She has been affiliated with FranChoice, the premier franchise consulting firm in America since 2003 and loves every minute!
Theresa has owned a multi-unit auto repair business and a multi-unit tax preparation franchise. Along with her consulting business, she currently helps her partner, Brad, operate a Boat Dock business on Lake Lanier, and also owns rental properties in GA and FL. She enjoys boating and lake life, gardening, cooking, fishing in the Gulf of Mexico, and babysitting her grandchildren and grand-dogs!
