There many aspects to consider when choosing a franchise. Let my expert consultation help you navigate through the process and guide you to the best possible match – at no cost to you. 

Becoming an entrepreneur is a great way to control the course of your career. Choose carefully, and owning a franchise can provide all the benefits of being an entrepreneur – without the start-up risks and potential pitfalls.

Phil has been involved with franchising for thirty years, and offers the unique perspective of having been both a franchisee and franchisor. Based on his experiences, Phil founded a brokerage and consulting company called FranMax in 1987; there Phil developed franchises such as Mail Boxes Etc., Moto Photo, and Sylvan Learning Centers – just to name a few.

Before founding FranMax, Phil held various sales and marketing positions with the 3M Company. He first became exposed to franchising while working at 3M, building a distribution network of Energy Control Centers. He recognized early in his career that franchising is the right option for most people seeking to own their own business. 

Even then, Phil realized that that franchises provided the best kind of career opportunity you could ever have: Being in business for yourself, not by yourself. That’s still true today.
