Phyllis Pieri, CFE CCP Not sure if a franchise is the right opportunity for you? Let’s talk!
I have owned and operated franchise businesses, and have been advising and coaching people in the world of franchising for 25 years. I have been where you now are. I have felt the fears and resolved them. I have had the doubts and concerns and found the way forward. And I want to share my success and passion for franchising with you. I sincerely believe that, based upon my personal experience, owning a franchise is the best way to go for a business owner.
What is my experience?
Let’s start at the beginning. I started my career in the franchise industry working for the corporate office of Sir Speedy in Newport Beach, California. This was valuable, but not fully satisfying for me. I wanted to get my feet wet. I wanted to make it on my own! So, I left the corporate side and bought a Sir Speedy Printing Center in San Francisco. After 4 very successful years, personal reasons took me back to Southern California. But the franchise bug had bitten. I wanted more! I spent the following 10 years putting people into lubrication and tune-up franchises. This was followed by my work on a new facet of the business: creating sales and marketing materials for start-up franchise companies helping them sell their first franchises. This honed my strategic marketing franchising skills! Funny how one gets known. The word gets around. Out of the blue, in 1989, I received a call from the Vice President of Sir Speedy, looking for a director for the western region of the United States. It was like going home again. I spent the following 7 years helping dozens and dozens of new business owners build personal wealth with their profitable franchises. Before I knew it, it was 2001, and I was ready to be a franchise consultant. I am still living my dream helping people be successful in business.
Franchise Coach – With my background of being a franchise owner and selling franchises among other things gives me a unique perspective when it comes to educating people about franchising. I became a Certified Franchise Executive many years ago. It is another key to my skill set because I am always current with what is happening in our franchise industry. I got certified as a coach practitioner to further my knowledge and give me additional insight as a coach.
Baby Boomer Coaching. I love helping people and since I am a baby boomer myself it only makes sense that being a boomer coach has become a natural extension of my business.
Are you retired and going stir crazy?
Have you considered owning your own business and now is the right time?
Are you looking for some extra income?
I have been training people most of my life. As a young entrepreneur and franchise owner, I used to train our employees. I spent 10 years putting people in the automotive industry and it was my responsibility to train our new owners.
My natural training skills also aided me in helping launch new franchise companies. Helping new franchise owners with all aspects of their companies.
Later after I became a franchise coach, I was recruited to help a company train their franchise owners from the United Kingdom.
Looking for an experienced facilitator or trainer, give me a call. I am happy to help you discover if I would be a good fit for your company.
Do you have a proven business model? Trying to figure out what would be the best way to grow your company? If the answer is yes, give me a call. I have spent the last 35 years in the franchise industry. I have been a franchise owner, worked for franchise companies and have sold a myriad of different franchises.
I helped several companies get launched with their franchise working with Erwin Keup who wrote the Franchise Bible. He would always look to see what the glue was that made the company unique. I would be happy to consult with you to see if your brand would be a good fit for franchising.
