About Chuck


Franchise Specialist of Western Canada

Buying a franchise is very attractive for many because it carries a level of autonomy and involves tested, proven operational systems that reduce entrepreneurial risk. Together we’ll explore if business ownership in franchising is right for you – both financially and as a career choice.

We help professionals and executives explore franchise ownership as a career alternative, a supplemental income source, or as an additional layer of retirement security. With the uncertainty in corporate Canada, many people have decided to go into business for themselves. Some have gone full-time in their new business while others have taken new day jobs, while investing in a franchise as a semi-absentee owner or as an opportunity for a family member to run.

Knowing where to start is often the biggest hurdle and with the overwhelming number of choices out there, many people avoid getting started. Our proven process and face-to-face consultations, allow us to establish a Business Model based on your individual preferences, personality, transferable skills, business and personal goals, and of course your budget. We recommend specific franchise concepts for you to investigate that align with your Business Model. Throughout this decision-making process, we coach and guide you in all aspects of your research.

Our commitment is to find the best-suited opportunity for our clients in a safe and affordable manner that best serves their long-term business goals and lifestyle choices. We offer consulting services on a no fee, no obligation basis to individuals considering business ownership.

Born in Edmonton, growing up in Winnipeg and having lived in Calgary and Toronto, Chuck now resides in the Vancouver area. He has experienced and gained a vast knowledge of the Western Canadian marketplace while understanding the uniqueness of each province and major city within the country.

Having sold his Toronto-based business in early 2008, Chuck and his wife Esta moved West, settling just north of Vancouver in the beautiful town of Squamish, BC where they work as ski instructors at the world-famous Whistler Blackcomb mountain.

Directly experiencing the benefits of the FranNet team at the Toronto office and seeing the potential of the business model, naturally motivated the decision for Chuck to join the Vancouver office and help the many like-minded entrepreneurs realize their dream of independence and business ownership across Western Canada.
