Franchising today is a trillion-dollar industry with thousands of franchise / business opportunities available. Franchise and business opportunities ("biz-ops") cover just about everything from A-Z- advertising to laundry / dry cleaning, maid services to printing / copy services, real estate to weight control. And, since the franchisor knows the business, they aren't looking for prospective franchisees with industry or technical experience. They want franchisees who possess "transferable skills" ... work ethic and discipline; customer service; business and management abilities; and not technical expertise. Thus, buying a franchise has proven to be a great vehicle for thousands of people to effectively transition to a new industry and self-employment with an improved quality of life, while becoming the master of their destiny.
Franchise Quest has access to a cross-section of hundreds of different franchises and business opportunities-full and part-time, small to large investment, and start-ups (emerging concepts) to established national brands. The “one-stop” shopping concept provides clients the convenience of reviewing several pre-screened franchise / business opportunities, prior to spending any of their time researching franchise offerings. Thus, clients are saved considerable time and effort by being introduced to franchises / business opportunities that meet their stated goals, lifestyle needs and desired investment.
