Great Service Makes For A Great Business PartnershipSo we build our reputation one satisfied client at a time
President | Founder
I help executives execute on their dream of owning a business through the less risky path of franchise ownership.
For more than 30 years, I’ve been able to predict emerging consumer trends that put me at the forefront of innovative (at the time) business concepts that saw rapid growth in home entertainment (Blockbuster Entertainment), do-it-yourself legal services (We the People), breakfast on the go (Einstein Bagels) and full service restaurant development ( General Mills Food Group). I also helped develop a spin-off retail company with Ebay and was part of the management group that launched the first successful nationwide Mexican restaurant chain, (Chi-Chi’s Mexican Restaurants).
Now I use my insight to help corporate executives transform into entrepreneurs by helping them navigate the good opportunities from the duds. I teach you how to spot the risks in any new venture–without becoming paralyzed.
My approach includes:
Psychological Assessment – What is your risk tolerance? What gets your juices flowing? What’s your emotional IQ?
Process Assessment – Are you a good manager? Or like going solo better? Do you like structure and proven “rules?” Or making up the rules to fit your vision?
Matchmaking to Your Strengths – There are more than 3000 franchise opportunities. What’s the fastest, most profitable path to bring your vision to the marketplace?
Hundreds of candidates and the hundreds of company’s that Pete works with have trusted his experience and knowledge of the franchise industry.
