The Opportunity

Franchising is the better path for many would-be business owners, as well as for those looking to add additional revenue streams. While franchising does not entirely de-risk the opportunity, the proven model, marketing and operations systems, and franchisor support vastly increase the odds of success in not only producing revenue streams but in building an asset with valuable exit potential.

At FranBridge, we specialize in non-food/non-lodging categories and partner with over 300 brands that we have vetted thoroughly and believe have an innovative proposition within their respective markets. Opportunities include a wide range of businesses in areas such as health and wellness, B2B services, waste managements, senior care, fitness, and home and property services to name a few.

Franchising is an $800B industry and is growing quickly. Are you an entrepreneur at heart that is ready to evaluate opportunities?

I have had the privilege to work with a number of franchise executives in recent years and I can say that Jon is as strong as they come. However, what I appreciate the most is the way he runs his practice with transparency and faith-driven values

Nathan Bocock 

Multi-brand and Multi-market franchise owner
(Repeat FranBridge Client)

Jon introduced me to an innovative business in an industry I never knew even existed. We had competition for the desired territories and he went to bat with the franchisor to make deal happen. Having been a franchisor and franchisee himself, he knows the inner workings of the industry like no other!
