    Pete Nash

    Pete NashAbout 20 years ago, I found myself with the same dream as you: owning a franchise. Not only did I succeed with my first, but I moved on to own a total of five franchises over the course of my career. I have worked to share what I’ve learned through the years by coaching more than 1,000 clients.

    I spent my first 25 years following college in the medical device industry where I worked my way up to Senior Management. The search for my first franchise landed me and my family in Charlotte, North Carolina. Here, I established my Accountant’s Inc. franchise. Some of the awards and recognition I’ve received include:

    • Two Franchise of the Year awards
    • Leadership awards
    • Ernst and Young’s Entrepreneur of the Year, Charlotte, North Carolina Nominee

    The range of franchises I’ve owned has allowed me to gain a diverse pool of knowledge, so you can be assured that I have the experience necessary to provide valuable coaching in a vast array of franchise business models . Aside from direct franchise ownership, I have also:

    • Performed developmental work for well-known franchisors
    • Coached over a thousand clients just like you
    • Owned single unit business models
    • Owned passive business models
    • Owned multiple-unit franchisees
    • Successfully bought and sold franchises

    Pete is a member of The Franchise Consulting Company. The Franchise Consulting Company is worldwide and the premier company in the United States for helping people explore franchise ownership.

     

    Doug Stout

    Doug StoutMy franchising career began 12 years ago. During this time, I stayed busy owning three franchises and performing coaching and development work for various franchisors. Like Mr. Nash, I have also coached more than 1,000 clients in franchise ownership.

    A resident of Greenville, South Carolina, I have received nominations for a variety of industry-related awards, many of which I won. I served as an Ambassador for seven years and receive frequent requests to share my knowledge in best practices in franchising conferences. My franchise ownership history includes:

    • Single unit, home based model, TES- 10 years
    • Always Best Care partnership, Master Developer- 5 years
    • Pro Martial- a semi-absentee ownership franchise
    • ARCpoint Labs, development work

    I completely understand the excitement the dream of business ownership creates, and this encouraged the development of a passion to share what I’ve learned with others so they can take their entrepreneurial spirit to the next level. The skills I’d love to share with you include:

    • Franchise ownership
    • Coaching and mentoring
    • Process development
