"If you have ever dreamed of franchising your business, look no further! My exprience working with the Stanwood Group has been nothing short of spectacular at a price point I never dreamed was possible.  I am so proud to be franchising my online hot yoga franchise and owe all of it to the Stanwood Group for believing in me by providing the knowledge, direction and tearing down those financial barriers that otherwise wouldn't have made my dream a reality."

"Everyone at the Stanwood Group have been nothing short of amazing in assisting and facilitating my business towards franchising. Their guidance and support has been phenomenal from start to finish. They are always a phone call away in order to help and assist with any questions I have as a business owner. We are very excited to be franchising and growing our business with the Stanwood Group!"

"The Stanwood Group assisted us in developing our new Urban Boxing Franchise System. We interviewed a good number of franchise development companies and decided to proceed with the Stanwood Group. Our experience working with them was first class. Robert Katz himself was professional, knowledgeable, always displayed the highest level of integrity and was always very giving of his time. The abundance of work products and services that we have received along with our Franchise Disclosure Document prepared by the Franchise Attorney they introduced us to for what we spent in total is simply unheard of today from other franchise professionals. We look forward to growing our new franchise program now that we possess the tools to expand and can honestly say that without the Stanwood Group’s expertise, guidance, industry connections and of course competitive discount pricing, we simply would not be in the position we are today to franchise our business."

"The Stanwood Group is one of the most exciting and innovative franchise development companies disrupting the traditional often overpriced franchise industry by helping small businesses grow where that was simply not possible before, by providing affordable turn-key solutions that otherwise have been costly and confusing to the client.  The team at Stanwood not only offers their cutting edge services affordably but they also hold your hand throughout the entire process, beginning to end. Having known the principals for 10 years, they are by far one of the hardest workers I know and will bend over backwards to assist their clients in being successful."

"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.

Gwendolyn Carry, Owner

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."
