Feb. 14, 2007 – DATELINE: LOUISVILLE, KENTUCKY.
Dr. Keith Winfree, founder of Winfree Business Growth Advisors, recently unveiled its Master Franchise opportunity for budding entrepreneurs. As a Master Franchise owner, entrepreneurs have the rights to sell, administer and accrue royalties for up to ten Winfree Business Growth Advisors franchises any where in the world with approval of the franchisor. Dr. Winfree also has a degree in industrial engineering, and a masters in divinity from The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and a Ph.D. in education with focus on corporate training. He was a Director with Arthur Young & Company in management services out of Detroit which is the parent company of Ernst & Young
Currently located across the United States, Winfree Business Growth Advisors franchises help sales professionals and small business owners maximize growth potential and take their respective businesses to a higher level through cutting-edge owner coaching, mentoring, and training. Territories are available in all markets. Current offices in the following cities: Chicago, Atlanta, Boston, Seattle, Albuquerque, Louisville, Princeton.
For a $150,000 franchise fee—the price for an individual franchise is $50,000—a Master Franchise can structure the ownership for a second franchise for example: 50 percent ownership of the second and following franchisees. Master Franchise owners can also receive 40 percent royalties on coaching fees from other franchise owners and of course the 10 that they open. The fee of $150,000 includes one franchise with the right to buy or sell the other nine for $30,000.
“The Master Franchise owner has the unique opportunity to not only teach Winfree’s philosophies and systems, but to be a major part of spreading the practice of these winning techniques and approaches to sales professionals and entrepreneurs in other parts of the country and world,” said Dr. Winfree. “This gives the Master Franchise owner the opportunities to not only make a profit for themselves, but to help others do the same. This is a proven system that is a goldmine for the right person. The ideal person is someone who has had sales management experience such as National Accounts Manager, Results oriented sales executive, Vice President of Sales and has an entrepreneurial experience. Most great prospects are unhappy with building net worth for someone else and being unappreciated!”
In addition to the $150,000 startup fee, Master Franchise owner candidates should:
