Craig Thompson

Franchise Consultant

Franchise Business Consultant for Southern Ontario and Eastern Canada

As a FranNet Consultant in Ontario and Atlantic Canada, 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. I am here to help you successfully transition from the corporate life to business ownership. My 20+ years with Tim Horton’s corporate, plus my personal experience as a multi-unit franchise owner gives me the perspective to help my clients assess their real opportunities, risks and timing to make sound decisions. We start by working together to determine if franchise ownership is a consideration for you, then build your business model and introduce you to viable franchise options that match your model. We then coach you through all aspects of franchise research.

If you are interested in discovering your options for franchise ownership in Ontario or Atlantic Canada, I can help you find the right opportunity that matches your skill set, goals, ideals and budget. Call me today to schedule an appointment and let’s start to reshape your future.


Craig has over 25 years of hospitality knowledge building exceptional guest experiences, operational excellence and identifying improvement opportunities. His career began with an International hotel chain based out of Boston in a Management Trainee program and continues today as a multi-unit franchisee in the GTA.

The bulk of Craig’s experience was with Tim Hortons Corporate Head Office, the leading Canadian Franchise company, where he led the Operations Excellence Team, driving operations standards, performance metrics, learning and Franchise Training at “Tims U”. After 20 years with Tim Hortons, he decided to consult for an organization to help multiple franchise concepts with improving their own operational standards through tracking mechanisms and data analytics.

Craig himself is a previous FranNet client. He utilized FranNet Services to find and purchase his own multi-unit Franchise in 2016. Breaking ground in Canada with one of the fastest growing fitness concepts from the US, Craig has first-hand experience in all facets of business and franchise ownership. He found the FranNet process so invaluable in helping him navigate and ultimately make his decision on the right franchise ownership that, after launching two of his locations, he decided to join FranNet as a Consultant.

Craig understands the workings of successful Franchise operations and the importance of the corporate head office partnership. He knows what to look for, what questions to ask and the opportunities that present themselves to potential Franchisees who are ready to own their destiny and play their hand at entrepreneurship.
