West is an impassioned believer that business ownership is the best way to achieve wealth and independence. The satisfaction of getting to know thoroughly the interests, skills, motivations, and goals of the people he works with and helping them realize their hopes and dreams through franchise ownership fuels West’s zeal for his role as a franchise consultant.
West has been an entrepreneur for most of his life. From computer sales to trading stocks, he had a wide range of career experiences, but then the budding entrepreneur in him arose and he became a partner in a web design and development firm. He was responsible for business development, project management, operations and financial management and strategic direction of the firm. His involvement in all facets of the company made him very familiar with the challenges of starting and running a company from scratch without the direction provided by a franchise blueprint.
In his role as the project manager for the Schlotzsky’s franchisee intranet, he coordinated all confidential communications between the franchisor and franchisees. It was during this time that West saw firsthand the value that a successful franchise model provides for franchisees.
In addition to his passion of helping people acquire a piece of the American dream through franchise ownership, West owns a very stable and successful Farmers Insurance Agency that he started in 2012. As the owner of an insurance agency himself West has specific expertise helping Insurance Agents and their clients locate and acquire franchises that fit them perfectly.
West lives with his family in Austin, Texas. He can be reached at 512-970-7478 or via email: WRomberger@FranChoice.com.
