Why A Franchise?

Higher Success Rate

When you buy a franchise, you are buying an established concept that has proven to be successful. Statistics show that franchise businesses stand a much better chance of success than starting as an independent business.

Help with Start Up and Beyond

We are there at the start and continue to support you in operating your business. Our franchises are, in fact, turnkey operations. When you buy a franchise, you will have all the equipment, supplies, and instruction or training needed to start the business. You also receive ongoing training and help with management and marketing. And your franchise will reap the benefit of group marketing campaigns.

Buying Power

You will benefit from the group buying power the franchisor negotiates for the benefit of the individual franchises. Inventory and supplies will cost less than if you were running as an independent company.

Star Power

Our franchises have powerful national brand-name recognition. Buying a franchise business can be like buying a business with built-in customers.


A franchise business can be more profitable than going alone.
