When I was considering becoming a franchisee, I approached FranNet to learn more about the process. Not only did my FranNet consultant take the time to meet with me regularly to make sure that franchising was the right choice for me, he also presented several appealing models from which I could choose. My FranNet consultant made the entire selection process very comfortable for me and my family.
