Many people would like to own their own business, yet for a myriad of reasons or perceived obstacles, never pursue their dream. What they don’t know, is that some of those reasons or perceived obstacles can be overcome with franchise ownership.
Then there are people who know they would like to own a franchise business, but have no idea where to start, or what all of the available options and considerations are on the path to franchise ownership.
I started Olk Consulting because I believe that anyone who dreams of owning their own business owes it to themselves to explore all of their options. I have the training, knowledge and expertise to guide them along that exploration while helping make their dreams become a reality.
I have over 20 years of business ownership and management experience in diverse business areas including printing, manufacturing, warehousing and distribution, mergers and acquisitions, and construction services. I currently own a multi-unit franchise, so I have first-hand experience and knowledge of all of the processes involved in becoming a franchise owner.
On a more personal note, I am an escaped Mid-Westerner living in South Florida where I enjoy playing golf year round, dining on Lincoln Road with my wife, and taking long walks with my dog, Stella Blue.
When people hear the word “franchise” they generally think of fast food or retail. In reality, there are thousands of franchise businesses available in countless industries, and we help people start new businesses through the vehicle of franchising.
Using a proven process, we evaluate our candidates’ strengths, weaknesses, goals and financial considerations, and then match them with a franchise business that best fits their specific profile. We are under contract with hundreds of companies throughout North America to find qualified franchisees, and we only work with solid organizations. Every company we recommend to you has been extensively researched by us.
We are more than just matchmakers, however. Throughout the application period we continue to consult and advise prospective franchisees using our extensive network of attorneys, accountants and business specialists.
Our consulting service costs you nothing because our fee is paid by the Franchisor. Should you decide to purchase a franchise, you will pay a franchise fee to the franchisor, and that fee is the same whether or not you take advantage of our help.
If you are an experienced operator looking for a Master Franchise, or a first time buyer looking for a single unit, we can help you find a business that fits your goals. We will apprise you of options you may not be aware of, and help clarify your understanding of the franchise names you do recognize.
Again, our fees are always paid by the Franchisor, and using our services does not impact your cost in any way.
