About Rick


I am able to help you find the right franchise. Using FranNet's proven model and my unique experience, my consultation will match you to the franchised business opportunities here in Naples, Fort Myers, and Sarasota that best meet your personal and professional goals. 

My lifelong passion has been to help others to achieve their goals, and this is what led me to the franchise consulting industry. Here I have the perfect opportunity to do what I do best: Assist people in maximizing their career potential. In my more-than-30 years in the industry, I’ve helped more than 1000 people – people just like you – to start a franchise and achieve their dream of business ownership.

I look forward to doing the same for you!  


Prior to becoming a franchise owner and consultant, Rick worked in the healthcare field and practiced law. After realizing that, as an attorney, he could not achieve his goal of helping others achieve theirs, Rick entered the franchise consulting industry to pursue that goal – and hasn’t looked back. 

As a Vice President of FranNet, Rick was responsible for reviewing more than 1000 franchised businesses to determine which might present the best opportunities for our clients. This responsibility provided Rick with an unmatched familiarity with the franchising industry – and great insight to share. Rick has shared this insight dozens of times as a guest speaker. 


In addition to attaining his law degree with highest honors, Rick earned a B.A. in Economics from Swarthmore College. Rick served as a Big Brother in the Big Brothers/Big Sisters organization for more than 20 years, and is currently the President of a local charity in his hometown. In addition, he proudly served as a medic in the US Army Reserves. 

Rick resides in Safety Harbor, FL with his wife, Karen, and has a daughter and two granddaughters.
