A Franchise Sales Case Study: FranNet Conference


FranNet, an industry leader in franchise consulting services, held its annual conference in Louisville, Kentucky at the end of October. John Cohen and Doug Schadle, co-owners of Rhino7 Franchise Development Corporation, attended the conference.

The franchise sales consultants from FranNet are always hungry for fresh business concepts to pitch to budding entrepreneurs. Two of Rhino7’s premier franchise opportunities were well-represented at the FranNet conference. PRO Martial Arts®, a martial arts studio franchise, is enjoying continued steady growth. And Storm Guard™, a franchise specializing in insurance restoration for storm-damaged homes, caught the consultants’ attention, in part due to the fact that Cohen and Schadle themselves have become Storm Guard franchisees.

John Cohen said, “Ed Samane [PRO Martial Arts owner/founder] and Jim Linehan [Storm Guard owner/founder] both attended the Louisville conference. They were able to meet and mingle with the FranNet franchise sales consultants, which always benefits franchisors like Ed and Jim, as well as the FranNet people.”

The FranNet conference provides an excellent case study on what it takes to put a strong franchise opportunity together and present it to a group of discerning professionals. The two Rhino7 franchise brands each offer unique strengths that will appeal to most any new business owner. PRO Martial Arts stands out from other martial arts schools in its anti-bullying and healthy eating programs for young students. And Storm Guard has built its business model on an ever-increasing source of revenue: damaging winds and storms.
