What Our Customers Say

If you are looking to change your career path, Kyle is an excellent resource. I engaged with Kyle in January 2013. He took the time to understand what my wife and I wanted out a business and how it related to us and our lifestyle. This is a very new concept coming out of the corporate world. Kyle then made several recommendations of potential companies. What I learned is that it is easier to find out what you want when you determine what you don't want.   Kyle took a lot of the mystery and anxiety out of the search and discovery process. Kyle also helped me overcome that "fear of failure" explaining that the franchise model reduces that risk dramatically IF you follow the process.   I consider Kyle a close friend and business associate now. I believe his strength is that he gets to know the person(s) before recommending opportunities.   I would recommend Kyle and his services to anyone even contemplating starting your own business and taking control of your life.

Craig Nelson, Lakeline, Lakeway,

Kyle's enthusiasm for small business ownership makes him a tremendous asset in exploring options for franchise ownership. I never knew what opportunities were available until I met Kyle. Once we set a plan, he was methodical, open-minded, and flexed when necessary. He's a great guy to work with!
