Nearing retirement age, I wasn't sure that I even wanted to retire. FranChoice and a really great consultant came to my rescue. She presented several interesting options. My consultant was with me through every toss and turn. I don't think I could have made the decision to become a franchise owner without her handholding & the exceptional customer service she provided and still provides. I'm now a successful owner in probably the most compatible environment that allows me to do what I do best, while achieving financial independence!
I would really like to thank you for all your help and all of your hard work. This would not have been possible but for your efforts. You have helped me to make one of my lifelong (I know I am only 32...smile) dreams come true. Thank you again for everything.
Thank you for your utmost care and help in putting in front of us many possible business opportunities to look at.
I learned a lot from the process of looking at different businesses and the evaluation methods. I was impressed by your genuine respect for and understanding of our goals and desires. You showed us a sincere, focused approach to find the right business. You are truly a professional.
Thank you for all you've done and for all of the wonderful guidance you've provided. It's been a pleasure working with you on this. You're a true "pro" and a real inspiration. Thank you for everything.
I had the pleasure of working with a consultant at FranChoice in early 2007, two weeks after I had been laid off from an executive position and was in a period of transition in my life. I was referred by someone he worked with a year before - who had great things to say about the franchise she bought, and extraordinary things to say about her experience with this consultant.
Everything I had heard about my FranChoice consultant was true. He was incredibly sensitive to the emotional issues caused by leaving the only life I knew - working for someone else - and helped me and my wife define our vision of what our life could be like if we took the path of owning our own business. He spent about 2 hours with us, covering my entire professional career, what I liked and disliked about my various jobs, what skills I have, what my management abilities are, the kinds of customers I would prefer to have and much more. He also asked detailed questions about what I wanted to get out of owning my own business (financial return, ability to expand, etc) and what I was willing to give up - or not give up - in return (time with family, financial risk. etc.).
Within two days, our consultant researched several franchises that met our criteria. Over the course of three weeks, he guided us patiently through the process of investigating each franchise - and, week by week, we eliminated franchises that weren't quite right. We ended up with a franchise that we ultimately bought - it reflects everything we talked about with our consultant, and immediately felt like we "fit like a glove" with the franchisor and the community of existing franchisees. My wife and I are looking forward to many years of success with our franchise, and to the new life we will be creating as a result of being in business for ourselves.
During the entire process, our consultant was available whenever we needed him - both for information and moral support. He is patient, sensitive, warm and professional. He is incredibly knowledgeable about the franchising industry, and has a very effective approach to finding the right franchise for people. He has a system in place to make sure the process always moves ahead - without making people feel rushed or pressured to make a decision. He treated us like individuals, and I always felt that he put our well-being first.
I wanted to take this opportunity to thank you for the work you have done to help me select a franchise that is inline with my business goals. Your services have been very valuable to me. It was really after reading and listening to E-Myth that I was convinced that a franchise was the right opportunity for me because of the systems, training and the success of others that have been invested into great franchises. I left the corporate world as a sales executive and wanted to get into a business opportunity that will help me grow a business while helping others all at the same time. Going through the franchise selection process with you was a great experience for me for several reasons. It allowed me to see other business opportunities to see what is possible down the road and it helped to better refine my business goals and objectives. I am now convinced with your help I was able to find the right opportunity by purchasing this business.
Three months ago came to a point in my life where I was ready to take a risk that could give me and my family the financial security we were looking for. We looked at all of our options and franchising seemed to be the best-calculated risk. So we started looking at different franchises and we quickly realized that there were a lot of mistakes you can make in choosing the “right” franchise. Since we were going to be making a sizable investment we thought we should have some help with the process. We came across FranChoice’s web site and saw that they assisted in franchise selection and their consultation services were free, so we decided to register. The next day a consultant gave us a call and I have to say I was a little skeptical about someone offering a “free service” because I live in a world where nothing is free. However, he was very professional and explained how they offer the services free of charge to people that are looking to become franchisees. Throughout the process he was very thorough and helped us develop a business model that he used to help us select franchises that best fit our model. He gave us all the support we needed to make an intelligent decision and stayed with us all the way, explaining everything that warranted explanation. He has been a great help and I would not be were I am today if he had not helped me get there.
I just wanted to thank you for all the help you've given me. I stumbled upon FranChoice by accident while researching a franchise. Although I was skeptical that a free service was really legitimate, I was so frustrated in my current situation that I figured I had nothing to lose. It was one of the best decisions I ever made. You opened my eyes to many things I was not aware of (good and bad). There was another free consultant that contacted me as well, but I decided to work with you because of the way you match one's business with his/her personality. I didn't even know the franchise choices you offered me even existed. There were all great choices. If I had not been counseled by you I may have made a big mistake with the businesses that I was looking into. I may have rushed into it without researching the proper information. I just want to say thank you for everything.
I would like to relay my strong recommendation of FranChoice’s services. I had the pleasure of working with a consultant at FranChoice and found the entire process a joy, and very valuable. I feel that my consultant’s advice was given with my best interests in mind. His knowledge of franchising is a great asset in one’s search for the right business for them.
I was quite skeptical at first, especially at the price (FREE!). After speaking with my consultant, my comfort level rose, and I felt I had made a good choice.
Now that I have found the franchise that I am going to work with in my endeavor, I feel quite confident that FranChoice was the right decision. Not only that, but my plan to build my portfolio in the future will include using this consultant and FranChoice’s services again to find the next business to venture into!
After coming to the USA from London, I spent many months and many thousands of dollars looking for businesses and sifting through the endless lists of franchises. Then I decided I needed assistance and contacted FranChoice for help.
It was the right decision. The clouds parted and I have accelerated towards an extremely promising future of business ownership. Had it not been for the FranChoice system and my consultant’s franchise experience, I am sure I would be no closer to my goal now and with a new home in a new country, I would have been in dire straits.
My final choice of franchise is far from what I had been restricting myself to before I contacted my consultant, but after creating my FranChoice profile it became an option for me and I have since realized that it fits my lengthy criteria perfectly.
For people who are committed and ready for franchise ownership I cannot recommend the FranChoice system highly enough. The reason it is a valid free service is that the franchisors know as sure as I do now, that were it not for the FranChoice system you most certainly would have overlooked them as possible candidates. There are too many franchises out there for an individual to sift through and make the correct, calculated decision. So give FranChoice your lifestyle and financial requirements and they will do the legwork for you. Save yourself a bunch of time, money and stress, enroll with this free service and you will not regret it.
When I was introduced to my consultant at FranChoice, I was very adamant about what I wanted for a franchise. After speaking with him, he cautiously advised me to continue in the direction I was going and provided me with a few points of concern that I should be aware of when making my decision. I followed his advice and was very grateful I did. It turned out not to be the right franchise for me. Through his own investigating and all of the time and effort that he took for me, I have now purchased my first franchise, which could have never been possible if it had not been for this consultant. He has a wealth of knowledge and I felt very sure of my decision to purchase the franchise. I think that anyone who decides to even inquire about owning a franchise should hope to have someone like this consultant on their side. Without him and all of his help, none of this would have been possible.
I have just finished signing my first ever franchise agreement. Although I have been in corporate business for over 25 years, I am a complete rookie when it comes to the franchise concept. Luckily, I came across FranChoice and a great consultant who in a very methodical / structured fashion helped me work through the process. There are many issues surrounding a franchise choice / decision and I knew I needed help finding just the “right” franchise for me and my situation. My consultant was a great help to me and I’d recommend FranChoice to anyone looking for this guidance.
I truly appreciate your advice to hold off for now until I am in a stronger financial position. I have always wanted to have my own business and am not giving up on that dream. But after working with you, I feel that I have a better understanding of what I need to have financially to cover my expenses during that first year until my business would start to provide an adequate income for me. Thank you again for giving the benefit of your many years of business expertise. It has been invaluable to me and I sincerely appreciated it.
I am extremely busy right now, and things are going good. I'm very happy with our increase over last year, and the franchise has been great!! You do great things for people and steer them in the right direction, so I'm more than satisfied with how things went and would recommend you to anyone interested in franchising. Thanks again for everything you’ve done for me and my family and have a great day!!!
I would like to thank you for your guidance in choosing the franchise opportunity that is the best match for me and my location. I am very pleased with my choice. You were always very accessible and knowledgeable during the entire process. I would recommend you highly to anyone I know that is interested in a franchising business opportunity.
I wanted to thank you for the wonderful service you provided in my recent franchise search. I could not imagine going through this process alone. Your knowledge and expertise in the franchise arena was second to none. My focus was so narrow in scope and you helped bring a much broader selection of opportunities to my attention. You helped me each step of the way, fact-finding, offering insight, and a valuable perspective. We ultimately decided on a franchise that was the perfect fit for me and I would have never discovered this opportunity on my own.
Thanks again for your help and keep up the great service you are providing.
I was already working with another franchise broker from another firm when I came into contact with a consultant from FranChoice, and the difference between the two was dramatic. The other consultant was a nice enough person but was "selling me" more than consulting with me. I felt an immediate connection when talking to the FranChoice consultant and could tell instantly she was much more knowledgeable about the franchising business. She really listened to what I was looking for and took the time to understand who I am and what I wanted out of life - not just a business. I ended up liking all of the options she presented me with and could have chosen any of them - I truly felt like I had quality choices rather than having to settle for just the "best available option." My FranChoice consultant stayed in touch with me throughout and was a pleasure to work with. I'd work with her again in a heartbeat and would recommend her to anyone looking to find the best possible match for them.
I had my doubts when I first filled out the form to have someone from FranChoice give me a call to discuss my options. I was very impressed when my consultant called me within 24 hours. From the very beginning, she was very patient with my millions of questions. I hardly even understood what a franchise was when I began. My consultant was very patient and followed through on every promise. Through recommended readings, long and patient phone calls, and helping me to get in touch with others going through the same decision process, I became more and more comfortable but never felt pressure to proceed. In the end, I chose a franchise that was a fit to my needs and skills.
It was a wonderful experience working with you and your organization. First of all, you identified my needs before determining what types of franchises to research. The most compelling element to me was the amount of time you spent talking to us after researching each franchise. In addition, you remained neutral to each franchise we researched and did not say anything negative about any company we researched. We are 7 months into this new venture and we are already profitable (we made our first profit after our 4th month). Our profits continue to grow each month. Thank you so much for your time and effort.
I had recently decided to leave my 30-year career as a librarian to finally do something that I really loved. When I contacted FranChoice, I was lucky enough to have an excellent consultant respond to my inquiry. He walked me through the process of discovering my true calling in life. He helped me recognize my entrepreneurial side, and together we found a great business which I have owned now for about a year and a half. Buying this franchise has been the best decision I ever made. Every morning I wake up excited to see what the day will bring. No longer do I have migraine headaches from working! I am now one of those people who say, "I can't believe I get paid to do something I love so much."
My consultant shared his own experiences with me and encouraged me as a mentor, coach and friend. I will always be grateful for his support and unflagging enthusiasm that took me from being a stressed employee to becoming a happy and fulfilled business owner.
I just wanted to send you a Huge THANK YOU for everything and all the time you spent with us two years ago through our discovery process. I just wanted to let you know how truly grateful I am to you for having been instrumental in really changing our family’s direction for the much better, not to mention my personal happiness! I am really enjoying this business and though it’s not getting any easier, it is certainly accomplishing all the things I had outlined that I wanted in a business! Thank you so much for doing an amazing job for us (a gift that keeps on giving!).
I worked with a FranChoice consultant to help me find the franchise that I purchased recently. When I decided to look into franchising as a business option, I looked up some sites on the internet and there were so many to look into that I did not know where to begin. My consultant worked with me to set up the franchise model that would be best suited to my personality and needs which in turn led him to suggest my new business. I would highly recommend this consultant and FranChoice to anyone who is considering purchasing a franchise.
This franchise we chose has made a tremendous difference in our lives. People tell me that I’m happier and look better than ever. I enjoy working with this business and have just learned that we are already one of the top three new offices in the U.S. The folks at Home Office are very nice and it is a franchise that wants to see their operators succeed. Kudos to you for pointing us in the right direction!
I can't say enough good things about my consultant and FranChoice. Her experience, understanding of human emotions, and ability to help me objectively look at each option were absolutely invaluable.
This is a scary and overwhelming process but she made it very manageable by identifying specific tasks that needed to be completed each week. I feel confident that I am a good fit for the franchise I've chosen and I know, because of my consultant, that I've asked the right questions to know exactly what I'm getting into. The added bonus is that I've also gained a friend through this experience. My consultant is an amazing individual who really cared about me as a person and my future success was her paramount concern. She didn't just try to sell me a franchise.
Just a brief note to tell you how fun and enjoyable this franchise is. I would never have thought that selling this product could be so challenging and profitable. I am off to a good start and have transitioned well. It has given me the time and control of my life that I wanted and will definitely provide the income as well. Don't hesitate to give my name to any prospect you have. Once again thank you for your support and direction.
By utilizing the franchise consulting services of FranChoice we avoided the virtually impossible task of sifting through the thousands of franchise companies to determine which one would be right for us. Our consultant helped us better clarify our personal criteria and goals, presented us with opportunities tailored to our particular profiles, and ensured that we remained focused on our top priorities. He then served in an advisory and coaching capacity until we chose the franchise opportunity that was best for us. We found him to be extremely professional, as well as very personable.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the many courtesies you have extended to me over that last months in assisting me with my future plans. This was a very frustrating time for me, with all the uncertainties I had to consider. Your expertise, advice and recommendations were so valuable; taking my lead from you is the best thing I ever did. I am very impressed with my chosen franchise and I feel that this is the key to the door for a bright, prosperous future. Your assistance in this matter proved invaluable and I want you to know that it has been a privilege to work with such a fine individual.
I was so afraid to take the plunge but your encouragement got me over the hump. You helped me believe in my abilities and potential. You took the time to get to know me, most astutely read my personality traits and assisted me in ultimately choosing to open the franchise of my dreams. Each day brings a new experience. Naturally, there are days when I say to myself, "What on earth have you done?" As you know, I left a secure job I had for some 23 years, opting to start anew. I don't regret my decision - I celebrate it each day. Owning a business is challenging, exciting and scary all at the same time. Thank you, thank you, thank you!! I have never been more content.
I just wanted to say how grateful I am for your assistance in finding a franchise that is such a perfect fit for me. Quite frankly, I don't think I would have even looked twice at the one I moved forward with if you hadn't introduced me to them. I had already looked at dozens of franchises and I had found a few that were pretty appealing. At that point I had contacted FranChoice just for the sake of being thorough. What I found as a result was a franchise that was ten-times better for me than anything I had previously looked at. It turned a slightly scary process into something that was, well, still a little scary, but also very, very exciting.
Also, I was able to find adequate and affordable financing through the contacts you provided. It saved me from having to dive into the nail-biting process of finding financing. I appreciate how well you've kept in touch; checking-up on how things have been going and helping me get past obstacles. Working with you has been very rewarding.
Tomorrow is my official opening date and I have been racing to get everything ready, phew! Actually I got quite a few customers automatically from the current franchisees who are nearby. It is nice to start with business immediately. I would be happy to recommend you and FranChoice; quite frankly you are the primary reason why today I am the happy owner of my own franchise.
I don't know if you remember me but I'm the woman you helped find the right franchise a little over 2 years ago. I have never worked so hard in my life! But I feel like we're past the hump. Last year our business more than doubled and we were profitable! That was exciting. We have just added our first management position - we hired a full-time salesperson and our goal this year is to hit $1M in revenue. And I always feel like I owe you so much for working with me and guiding me. I am so grateful that I worked with you and had the advantage of your expertise!
I just wanted to drop you a note to say thanks again for all your help in locating the perfect franchise opportunity. With the parameters that I gave you I thought it would be next to impossible for you to find a franchise, but instead you showed me three. With the help of your excellent discovery process, it became clear what franchise I should buy. It has been almost three years now and I’m pleased to say that I am still enjoying every minute of building my business. I remember during due-diligence you said that you look to match Top Ten owners. I am proud to say that I am currently #1 in the company!
I have always been both excited and nervous about the idea of getting my own business. I wasn’t sure what kind would be right for me or how I would go about finding it. As a recent widow, I finally decided the time was right. The thing I appreciate about my experience with FranChoice was the attention I got. My consultant listened to me about what I needed to have in terms of hours and the income I needed to have and then found a business that had everything I wanted. I have to admit that the last place I ever thought I’d be involved with would be the automotive industry, but it is perfect for me and I love it. Thanks, thanks and more thanks for all your help!
Through the years I have moved my family so many times and all I ever wanted was to have a rewarding job that would keep my family in one place, a business I could call my own. I searched high and low on the Internet for so many employment avenues, but once I came across FranChoice, I knew I didn’t have to search any further. Before I knew it, a consultant for FranChoice was coaching me every step of the way on how to get started running my own franchise. With their outstanding counseling and mentoring during the five month process, I was able to sort through hundreds of franchises and decide which franchise was a good fit for my personal ambitions, talents and interests. When it got down to making my final decision, I was confident with my choice. Now, I can finally put our moving boxes away because with FranChoice I was able to start my own business, have my own hours and schedule and most importantly, establish my family in one area once and for all.
I was just retiring from the Military after 27 years but I was too young (and didn’t have enough money) to really retire. I’m used to operating within a structured system and I thought a franchise would provide an environment I would be comfortable with. I used the FranChoice service because I didn’t know which franchise would be best for me. My consultant was not a salesman type character, he mostly listened and then made recommendations. We had to look at a few different companies before we found just the right one for me. My consultant probably got sick of me since we talked every week for almost five months before everything got done right but it was sure worth it for me. I highly recommend this service to anyone looking for help in finding a good business.
I’ve bought and sold a few other businesses and franchises in the past but I wanted to find one that I would be excited about so I could build it up and pass it on to my kids. I always thought that I knew exactly what kinds of businesses would appeal to me but I had been disappointed with past choices. I decided to use the FranChoice service to see what it could come up with. After listening to my input about the characteristics I wanted in a business, she recommended franchises in industries I never would even have considered. At first I thought this was nuts, but she was right. I selected a franchise that capitalizes on my executive skills, where the role of the franchisee is to manage managers and build multiple units. This is perfect for me and I never would have gotten here without FranChoice.
I already knew that I wanted a fast food franchise before I ever contacted FranChoice. Everybody’s got to eat. I just wanted to hear which ones they thought were best. After completing their process and listing the characteristics I wanted in a business, it became obvious that I would have been miserable in a fast food business. I really wasn’t considering the hours or the type of work I’d be doing (let alone the employee hassles). My consultant found me a light manufacturing franchise that is perfect for me. This is a great service for anyone who wants a franchise.
Over the years I had answered lots of ads for franchises but they never seemed to be the right fit when I looked into them. I didn’t want to just buy a job with long hours and a lot of risk. When I started working with my FranChoice consultant, I was skeptical because it sounded too good to be true but he did just want he said he would. After only a few hours of conversations, he was able to direct me to two different franchises that both seemed perfect for me. The most difficult part of the process for us was choosing between the two! This has been a great experience that I heartily recommend to anyone else who wants to find a good franchise for them.
After 17 years in the fast paced corporate environment, I needed a change, but wasn’t sure where to go or even how to get started. I needed a road map to find my way. When I met my FranChoice consultant, he gave me the right directions to get my life back on the right track. Together we analyzed my capital, we discussed my likes and dislikes and visualized what franchise would work for me. He suggested a number of venues for me to explore and consider. The FranChoice program gave me the faith and reassurance that I could do this - that I could really own my own business - and to them, I am forever grateful.
