About Phillip

I was in corporate America for 25+ years in the electronic payments industry and after one too many corporate re-organizations and downsizing, I elected to pursue my dream of working for myself in 2015. I am an independent franchise consultant and am affiliated with a company that has helped individuals find and match up with franchise and business opportunities that align with their goals and investment criteria for the past 15 years. I work with over 400 different brands from 23 industries and all investment levels and can also provide insight into funding options. Franchising is a great way to get into business for yourself, but not by yourself. Across the board, some of the most successful owners are veterans. I would be happy to answer any questions you may have on franchising.
