About The Growth Coach

The Growth Coach is a unique coaching business that leverages the power of affordable group coaching mixed with high-power, one-on-one business coaching to help businesses create breakthroughs. We've helped thousands of business owners thrive for more than two decades. Our franchisees build their own businesses through mentoring local businesses.

Our systems generate strong results for our clients and open the door to a wide range of additional project work, sales coaching, and management consulting. If you've had a successful career and are ready to share your experience with others, owning a Growth Coach franchise could be the most rewarding chapter of your career.

Values & History

Before starting The Growth Coach and growing it into one of the top-ranked business coaching franchise opportunities, founder Dan Murphy was an accountant at Deloitte, where he helped dozens of small- and medium-sized businesses in Cincinnati navigate the often troubled and always complex waters of managing growth, cash flow, and daily challenges. Through his work, he came to see the value of coaching to big businesses and the need for affordable coaching for small businesses. This idea allowed him to become the first Growth Coach in 1992, offering business coaching services to small businesses in the Cincinnati area. In time he came to see the limitations of traditional one-on-one coaching, and when a husband and wife team approached him with the desire to be coached together, the idea for group coaching was born. Since then The Growth Coach has grown to become the largest franchise provider of group coaching services, and our business coaches have helped thousands of small business owners, managers, and sales teams to reach new successes while providing entrepreneurs with a spirit to serve an affordable business opportunity.

Our coaching programs are about more than work — our Growth Coaches change lives.
