About Us

What Is "Franchise Food Consultants":

It is a commonly held belief that franchise businesses are more sustainable and easier to get off the ground then a family-owned style of business.  Both have their pros and cons and ups and downs, and Franchise Food Consultants is here to help you understand the entire process – from making a decision to start a franchise or go it alone, all the way to getting the doors open and beyond. 

Franchise Food Consultants have a great deal of experience in all different types of food service operations, and we want to help prospective franchisees find the right fit to increase the likelihood of success.  There are many franchise choices, and our goal is to help you find the balance between passion and practical.  Given that we have done this successfully 9 times, we know we can increase the potential for success with your franchise choice.  Franchise Food Consultants are here to help make your job easier and more profitable.

Why We Started "Franchise Food Consultants":

There are more franchise companies to choose from than ever.  Regulations in municipalities are greater and more difficult to navigate than ever.  Dealing with contractors and subcontractors are more nuanced than ever.  Franchises give you a wealth of information, but when it comes to your local area, you may need assistance from someone who has practical, “boots on the ground” experience dealing with Building Departments, Contractors, Health Departments, and Landlords.  This is where we know Franchise Food Consultants can be a benefit to both new and experienced Franchisees. 

As the owners of Franchise Food Consultants we have a track history of coming in under budget and on-time with our locations.  We have the third quickest opening of any Edible Arrangements (from Franchise Agreement signing to Opening Day), and we came in significantly under the FDD budget for our first Simple Greek location.  These practical, real world successes are where Franchise Food Consultants can provide the most value. 

Our first one hour consultation is free, so we encourage you to contact us to see how we can help you get your new or existing franchise business to discover a higher level of achievement.
