How do we know so much about Franchises?

We have worked with hundreds of franchisees and franchisors in the 10 years that we have been selling businesses, so we have real world, first hand experience of what really happens in franchises.  In addition, Sunbelt is a franchised system, so we know, first hand, the ups and downs of being part of a franchise.  The speaker, Ken Higbee, is the owner of the Southeast Michigan Sunbelt office and is also an owner in three other franchise systems.

Sunbelt works with over 30 franchise systems to help their franchisees sell their businesses.
