San Diego, CA (PressExposure) September 10, 2007 -- One local business has a unique opportunity to turn their company into a national franchise through a competitive contest. The most passionate, local business owner who can demonstrate readiness for franchise wealth will receive services worth thousands of dollars, including the creation of documents needed to offer the sale of franchises.
In an effort to give back to the San Diego business community, PIR & Associates, Inc., The Franchise Maker, will analyze the winning companyâs current business model and develop an infrastructure for expansion and increased profits. The owner will be assisted step-by-step, through each stage of the disclosure process and referred to experts who will provide other needed services at affordable rates. Winning this contest will save one company more than 70 percent off the typical overall cost to franchise.
David Waldman, CEO and Founder of PIR and Associates, Inc., The Franchise Maker is excited to work with companies who are ready for growth, like Assist U2 Build and On the Go Spa.
âOther companies did not offer the complete package of services PIR provided. Dave made franchising nationally simple, and connected me to resources for everything I needed. I wouldnât be here to day if it wasnât for his enthusiasm and willingness to go that extra mile for me,â says Bruce Kaylor, CEO, Assist U2 Build.
Veronica Simonides, CEO, On the Go Spa says, âI started the franchise process with a law firm that botched things up and after nine months of trying, I gave up on them. I was blessed to find Dave, and within weeks he was able to do what they couldnât, or wouldnât. His confidence in our mission and me made franchising easy. He is a gem and I intend on doing a lot of business with him.â
