Professional Franchise Brokers was founded by Michael and Laura Pierce, to provide the expertise and resources for those who are interested in owning their own business. We have real-world experience to help people who are interested in owning their own business through franchising. Owning a business is not for everyone. We know that and we have the tools and resources to determine if business ownership is for you. Professional Franchise Brokers have the resources to help you locate a top-quality franchise – one that is a good match and enables you to meet your personal and financial goals and dreams.
Our company is a Member of the International Franchise Professionals Group (IFPG) and will bring a host of resources to assist you in your search. When you work with a professionally trained franchise consultant you are tapping into a franchise professional who has a process in place to help you succeed in your search for the right business.
Our mission is to help you reach your personal and financial dreams through the power of franchising.
- We’ll spend the time needed with you to understand what your goals are. Imagine buying a home or even a car without first stepping back to decide what you need and what your investment range should be? You owe it to yourself and your family to start your search with some guidelines in place–that is where we can help.
- After we understand what your personal and professional goals are, we’ll begin contacting franchisors on your behalf. You’ll never have to visit websites, request information and then wait around to see if a franchise is potentially the right fit–we’ll do all of that for you.
- We’ll show you franchises that you’d probably never even consider on your own. Yes, that is something that an experienced franchise professional, with a deeper understanding of the opportunities in today’s marketplace, will regularly do for their clients. If you love coffee, you’ll probably gravitate to a looking at coffee franchises, even though owning a coffee franchise has very little to do with loving coffee. You owe it to yourself to understand what franchise models best align with your existing skills and we’ll help get that picture into focus.
- If you need financing, we can refer you to 3rd party lenders who specialize in financing franchises. All too often someone’s life’s dream of franchise ownership is squashed by their local bank’s loan officer who many have little or no experience in lending to potential franchisees.
About Michael and Laura Pierce
Michael and Laura Pierce have over 25 years of business experience that includes over 20 years of franchise experience. Michael is a graduate of George Mason University and spent many years in the tech industry working for the National Rifle Association, GE, and several internet startup companies. Laura attended Texas Tech University and has an extensive sales background working in the sign industry and office products.
When the economy was struggling and tech bubble burst, they realized the franchise industry was a great path to business ownership. They purchased their first franchise in 2001. Michael and Laura soon expanded their territory by purchasing three additional Comfort Keepers franchises. During their time with Comfort Keepers, they served on the Comfort Keepers’ National Advisory Board working directly with the franchisor. They are able to build the business from the ground up to over 100 employees.
Their entrepreneurial nature and commitment to wellness encouraged them to open a Wellness Center that focused on massage and acupuncture. The wellness center was not part of a franchise and it allowed them to learn a very valuable lesson. Having a franchise system to support you can be vital to your success. In a franchise system, the hard work of setting up systems and procedures is already done, which provides for a more successful business owner.
Michael and Laura are dedicated to helping people interested in owning a franchise by getting to know them on a personal level to find the right franchise system for them.
