As a FranNet franchise consultant in Nebraska and Western Iowa, my role is to provide education about the franchise world, assist you with determining if franchise ownership is right for you, and identify franchise businesses that will offer you the best opportunity for success. My personal experience as a franchise owner and operator gives me the perspective to help my clients assess their real opportunities, risks and timing to make sound decisions.

I work with aspiring small business entrepreneurs, and those looking for additional businesses, in Bellevue, Council Bluffs, Des Moines, Fremont, Grand Island, Lincoln, Omaha, Scottsbluff, Sioux City, and the surrounding Nebraska and Western Iowa areas. We address your career options first, and work together face-to-face to determine if franchise ownership is a consideration.

Our structured FranNet Process has helped thousands of out-placed executives, semi-retired professionals, and people looking to create additional income find opportunities they may not have found on their own. More importantly our research process adds safety and clarity to buying a franchise for sale and starting a business for the first time. If you are tired of building someone else's dream and want to create your own, I am here to help you.

“With more than 3,000 franchise concepts to choose from, we understand that finding the right franchise opportunity can be overwhelming.” We work with successful franchise brands in many industries including retail, automotive, health and wellness, business-to-business, technology, service and education. As the oldest franchise consulting group in the country, we have nearly 30 years of experience in thoroughly screening these franchises to select the best from the rest.


Blake has two decades of franchising and small business ownership experience. This experience includes: Educating entrepreneurs about new franchise business opportunities; operation of new franchise businesses; franchise coaching, franchise consultation, and franchise guidance; new franchise business start ups; and coaching hundreds of franchise owners around the world. He is a Certified Franchise Executive and a graduate of the University of Michigan’s Psychology Program.

Blake is the franchise owner of FranNet of the Heartland, assisting entrepreneurs who are interested in new, or additional, small business ownership opportunities within Nebraska and Western Iowa. He is a Certified Franchise Executive and volunteer with the Omaha SCORE Chapter. Blake is a life-long Midwesterner, a long-time resident of Nebraska, and lives in Omaha with his wife and two sons.
