Seth Schonberg

My 30+ years of experience as a nationally recognized franchise consultant and developer of a national franchise system have proven highly beneficial for clients seeking to invest in business ownership. My expertise, combined with my passion for mentoring future entrepreneurs to “be their own boss” through franchise ownership, has effectively placed hundreds of clients throughout my consulting career.

After a successful career in the corporate world, I had the opportunity to venture into franchising with a start-up company. Under my leadership, we achieved national recognition and growth from six company stores in the Philadelphia market to 178 franchise/company locations in 22 states. My focus was to develop all aspects of the company’s operational systems, supporting the development and growth of each franchisee.

For the past 18 years, I have been a franchise consultant affiliated with one of the leading franchise consulting networks in the nation, FranChoice. As a franchise consultant, I work one-on-one with my clients to help them identify and invest in businesses that align with their personal and financial goals.

Recommendations for Seth Schonberg

“I met Seth through a mutual acquaintance while looking for business investment opportunities. Seth listened to my search criteria and my overall investment objectives and came back to me with a few opportunities that didn’t work out. Over a year passed, and Seth and I kept in touch. Every time we spoke, Seth listened and offered advice, all while being conscious of my time. Seth then came to me with a semi-passive investment opportunity that hit the mark. He stayed in touch with me during the entire process through closing the deal, and we’ve kept in touch since. I’d highly recommend Seth to anyone looking for active or passive investment opportunities.”

“I met Seth early in 2022 as I was starting to explore options for personal and professional growth. While I was not particularly focused on a franchise opportunity at the time, Seth’s contact intrigued me. I was very skeptical as my experience with franchise ownership was skewed by a previous business dealing. That said, he listened to my concerns and my interests. He developed a plan to explore five opportunities (one of which caught him off guard based on my experience). He encouraged me to stay the course and follow the plan. We eliminated two right off and focused on 3. He guided me every step, making sure I got the answers I needed. As with any plan, things don’t always go the way you hope or envision, but I stayed the course. His insight, guidance, and calm demeanor kept me focused on the end game. Despite all the ups and downs and having to walk away from one opportunity, I followed the plan and found a franchise that fit my long-term goals professionally and personally. The funny part is that it is the one he found to be the most intriguing choice for me. I am proud to say because of Seth; I am now the proud owner of Bio One Pasco County. Seth started off being a mentor, but that only lasted for a short period of time. He became much more than a mentor; I am proud to call him a friend. If you are remotely interested in becoming a franchise owner, I highly recommend Seth. I am certain you will find a fit and gain a friend along the way.

Thanks, Seth, for making ownership a reality! Looking forward to the future!”

“Seth was amazing to work with. He was patient and a problem solver. He is down-to-earth, understands and explains all aspects of owning a franchise business, and does so in a non-condescending way. I would absolutely recommend Seth to anyone looking for a franchise.”
Francesca P., Canton MI

“Seth was recommended by a friend and was a perfect fit. It was a seamless but thorough process to evaluate all the brands out there and ultimately pick the right one. He was super helpful throughout and always available to chat through any questions or concerns. I highly recommend Seth for anyone looking to get into the franchise space.”

“My wife and I were exploring opportunities to own a franchise and were introduced to Seth from a close connection we had with family. Seth reached out to connect immediately, and from the onset, we were both very impressed with his friendliness, professionalism, knowledge /experience with franchising, and just an all-around great person. He prepared and guided us through the education and discovery process, matching us properly with fitting franchise options. He got to know us personally and professionally. He used and valued our relationship to best match us with the business characteristics that were most important to us to become successful as franchisees. He introduced us to businesses that fit our priorities with the ultimate goal of living the way that we want to. We highly recommend Seth to anyone considering exploring franchise opportunities, expanding their current franchise portfolio, or having as a great friend. We are very grateful that our paths crossed and look forward to a long and lasting relationship.”
