Louisville, KY (PRWEB) June 11, 2014
FranNet, long regarded as North America’s most respected leader in matching individuals with franchise opportunities, is primed to become the world’s most respected franchise consulting company.
The company introduced David Kelly as Master Franchisee and Vice President of Franchise Development for the United Kingdom. He’s tasked with introducing the company’s proven strategies and tactics throughout the U.K. and establishing relationships with franchisors seeking expansion in the region. This is the company’s first office in the U.K.
With more than 25 years of experience in representing the strongest U.S. brands, FranNet is using its international growth to help create more business ownership opportunities and, in turn, more jobs across the globe. FranNet also recently purchased the assets of FranNet-Germany in fall 2013 and is seeking additional expansion in Western Europe, the Middle East and Australia.
“Our vision for the company includes a tremendous amount of international growth. We see FranNet playing an active role in helping improve the global economy and addressing employment issues around the world,” said Jania Bailey, FranNet’s president and COO. “With Germany, and now the U.K., FranNet is poised to achieve that vision in a thoughtful and meaningful way.”
Through a free, educational and consultative process that includes a personal franchise assessment, FranNet consultants determine which potential franchisors fit that individual’s needs, motivations, business goals and budget.
FranNet also focuses on the segments of the industry seeing the greatest growth, ensuring the appropriate fit for each candidate, balancing that with a specific opportunity that has the greatest potential for future success. By employing highly qualified business professionals that have a strong understanding of business opportunities in their region and country, FranNet’s consultants are able to help franchisees start a business and help grow their community’s small business presence.
Based in Enfield Middlesex, a suburb of London, Kelly will focus on growing FranNet’s presence quickly across Scotland, Wales, Great Britain, and Northern Ireland.
“As an ambassador for franchising as an economic growth system, I have been involved in many national and international franchise development programs around the world promoting business ownership through franchising,” Kelly said. “With more than 25 years of experience and extensive knowledge of the franchising sector, I am looking forward to establishing relationships with franchisors seeking to expand in the U.K., as well as in Europe as a whole.”
Kelly will work with U.S.-based franchisor partners looking to expand internationally to promote growth in the U.K. In addition, Kelly will be working with franchisors based in the U.K. to expand throughout the region.
“I am confident that we will have global success as we establish our brand across the world,” Bailey said. “From Germany to the United Kingdom, these exciting additions to our company are just the beginning of bringing our proven methods worldwide.”
