"I have had a personal and professional relationship for many years with the Stanwood Group. I have enjoyed working with them and their emerging franchisor clients which has proven to be a successful formula giving access to new franchise companies to the marketplace in a manageable and cost-effective way that would otherwise be unobtainable to those new franchisors due to the otherwise overpriced cost to franchise their business through traditional means.

I explored many avenues to grow my business, and decided that franchising was the best option to achieve my goals. I had done extensive research regarding the franchising process to know that I needed the guidance of experienced professionals. I began looking for assistance, and found many companies that would help me through the process, however the fees that they charged made my dream nearly impossible. When I found the Stanwood Group, I discovered they had a fee structure that was extremely reasonable, particularly with very low up-front costs, allowing me to move forward. Whereas most companies charge excessive up front fees, the Stanwood Group makes their money on the back-end, in a very equitable way through our growth. I appreciate how they have a vested interest in making my franchise successful. They have been fantastic to work with. I have a great level of comfort knowing that they are dedicated to my success. Any time I have a question, they are always available to talk, and eager to explain the process in terms that I can understand. They provide the resources needed to make a complicated process as easy as possible. I highly recommend working with the Stanwood Group to anyone who dreams of franchising their business. I look forward to a long and profitable future with them."
