We'd been operating our business for 15 months and were exploring ideas to expand our business. We felt franchising could be the answer and when we spoke to Brian he was genuinely excited about helping us to bring our business to a franchise ready stage. We wanted to develop a franchised business model that was simple and that we could get to market in three months. I researched many firms who do similar things to Franchise Simply and found the prices offered very competitively priced and with pretty much constant access to Brian thrown in, we felt that Franchise SImply was great value. Brian is pragmatic, does not tell you things you want to hear necesarily, but speaks with authority and experience and if your franchising idea is indeed a goer he will give you the confidence to commit, similarly he will tell you if you are not going down a sustainable path - he has great integrity in that way. In short, if I had to start over, I would go with Franchise Simply again. I have always felt that I could contact Brian and ask his opinion or advice, if he says that he will do something he will, and the consultant contact he uses as part of the Franchise Simply System are of the highest quality and provide great value if you chose to use them. Whilst our franchise is now up and operational and expanding, we still utilise Franchise Simply and Brian Keen regularly as a mentor and friend. 5 stars from us.
