Megan Allen has spent her entire career in the franchise industry. She owned her own business with her father during college in the finance industry, helping franchisees create growth through leasing equipment for property improvement plans.
She then took a position with American Express Business Finance working with Enterprise Franchisors as an account manager for the Intercontinental Hotels Group (Holiday Inn), McDonalds and Dairy Queen.
After her time working as a supplier for the industry, she moved into a role with Camp Bow Wow, North America’s largest Doggy Day Care and Boarding brand as a founding employee. She spent years growing the brand and assisting in real estate, development, and openings. In May of 2011 she was promoted to be the brand’s COO and worked tirelessly to expand services and financial wealth for the franchisees in the system.
Camp Bow Wow was sold to a strategic partner, VCA (WOOF) a $2 Billion public company in 2014 for a record setting valuation, since then VCA was purchased, along with Camp Bow Wow Inc. to the Mars Corporation. Currently the Camp Bow Wow brand enjoys a remarkably high multiple unit ownership make-up and strong financial return.
Megan has also assisted other service franchises in various roles over the years. She believes that niche and unique brands can work in most communities and is passionate about finding the right owners for each model. Her various consulting roles have focused on coaching, change management, real estate, legal matters, as well as franchise development.
As a Colorado native who is truly proud of her state, she is excited to round out her career, becoming a Franchisee herself with the FranNet team and helping support and grow her clients by helping them fulfill their own business ownership dreams.
On a personal note, Megan is a Stepmother to two great young ladies, Marley -18, and Maya – 13 and lives in Centennial, Colorado with her husband, Mike. She volunteers regularly for numerous charities and is extremely passionate about giving back to her community.
