Are you dreaming about owning your own business, but don’t know which ones to consider or where to even start? I can help you find the right opportunity that fits your likes, skills and your budget. My methods can even help determine if owning a business is the right choice for you.

You already know that starting any business isn’t easy.  And, you also know that having someone to walk you through the evaluation process, and find what’s right for you, will relieve much of your burden. In order for you to make an informed decision about your future, you will need some basic information.  I am prepared to invest the time necessary to provide you with that information. 

The first step will be for the two of us to have a brief conversation, either by telephone or at one of my upcoming Southern California educational seminars. I can be your guide in the South Bay and Westside of Los Angeles as well as Orange County. 

Here are the initial tasks:

1.)   Attend an educational seminar to learn how the FranNet process works

2.)   Complete FranNet’s Personal Franchise Assessment (about a 20-minute survey)

3.)   Attend a free one-on-one personal coaching session to discuss your next moves.

Did I mention the best part of all this, it’s 100% FREE of charge?

Keep in mind there are over 4,000 franchise concepts in 90 different business categories.  FranNet represents over 200 of the best brands available. Having a friend like me to help you navigate the confusing maze of options simply makes good business sense.

I’ve coached hundreds of individuals to find their dream business and helped them build successful lives.  My proven process assesses your strengths & weaknesses, and your interests as well as your financial ability.  This helps me match you with the best franchise opportunity that is right for you.

Simply, fill in the form on this page or give me a call. Let’s start today.



I’m Craig Wells, Franchise Specialist for Southwest Los Angeles and Orange County, California. Before purchasing my first franchised business in 1991 (MAACO Auto Painting), I had spent 14 years in shopping center management. From the landlord’s perspective, I watched thousands of businesses thrive, while hundreds of others failed. Interestingly enough, those that were most successful belonged to chains and franchise systems.

In 1996, my wife and I were in your shoes—nervous about finding our next business adventure. We had recently sold our MAACO shop, and chain of 1-hour photo stores. We knew we wanted to start another franchise; that was when we scheduled a free consultation in the Orange County, CA FranNet office. The helpful expert took inventory of our skills and introduced us to an opportunity he felt best suited our strengths and goals.

For over 21 years, I was the President and CEO of Cash Plus, Inc., a national franchise company in the retail financial services industry.  During those years as a franchisor, I continued working with the national network of FranNet consultants who helped expand my system by coaching and referring qualified franchisee candidates.

One advantage I had as an owner was the ability to work with hundreds of other franchise presidents through the International Franchise Association and other industry groups.  That unique perspective can be utilized to help you combine the right puzzle pieces to make your future dreams a reality.

Outside of franchising, I enjoy golf, writing, traveling and spending family time with my wife and two sons. Helping others has always been a priority in the Wells household. Before getting married, my wife and I volunteered as youth ministers at our church. We have also been long-time sponsors of Save the Children. Plus, we initiated BravoKids, a children’s charity program that all of our franchisees could support, nationwide. 

Make that call now, and let’s start working on your future, together.
