Trusted Advisor. Raving Chocoholic. Former Franchisee. Girl Mom. Critical Thinker. Puzzle Lover. Vikings Fan (yes, the football kind). Eternal Optimist…just some of what I’m bringing to the table.

Today, I want to highlight the incredible value that comes with working alongside a Certified Franchise Consultant (CFC). We consultants bring a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the table, and we (but mostly me 😉) want to be your personal guide in the franchising universe. Truly.

CFC training equips us with a deep understanding of the franchise industry, market trends, and the intricacies of different business models. Plus, my experience as a successful former multi-unit franchisee can provide you with valuable insights and information crucial for making informed decisions about franchise ownership. Really.

Enlisting the services of a CFC isn’t just a smart business move, it’s the absolute best kind of strategic investment – No cost to you! Our expertise, industry insight and personalized approach can make all the difference in your search for the perfect-fit franchise. Seriously.

I invite you to connect with me if you’re curious about the world of franchised businesses. There’s so much more to explore than burgers and beverages.
