Doug really did an astounding job in terms of personalizing the franchise selection experience and meeting me where I was at. I was having difficulty finding a business to buy based on my immediate and long-term financial goals in my current situation. Doug unexpectedly showed up and deep dove exactly what I needed and consequently ended up placing me with a wonderful brand family.

Timing is everything. Doug and I connected at a time, where I was evaluating my next career adventure. We got to know each other and found a mutual drive to support, coach, and counsel others for success. He took the time to understand my interests, hobbies, and personal and professional goals at this time in life. He also was patient knowing, that I was taking my time to make a decision.

Hi recently hired Doug Stout with The Franchise Consulting Company. It was a great decision and an excellent experience. I was interested in starting my own company and had an interest in a franchise, but had no idea how to navigate that space. Doug got to know me, my goals and interests and then presented me with several franchise opportunities in my area in which I had no idea existed.
