Emily advises aspiring franchise owners to keep it simple—keep an open mind. She asks to focus on how a franchise can help achieve goals rather than the particular product or service.
“When I’m speaking with someone, and I see the recognition in their eyes when they realize the possibilities that are available to them and the lifestyle they can have through business ownership—that’s success to me,” said Anderson. “Anytime I can get someone to think beyond the five dollars footlong and the golden arches, and they realize what is available to them, that feels like a win.
On top of her normal consultant services, Anderson also facilitates panel discussions several times a year featuring past FranNet clients, now local business owners. These discussions are open to the community and give aspiring franchisees a chance to ask questions and learn from others’ experiences.
