Use Terry’s Experience as a Coach and Franchisee

Terry Sullivan
Thank you for dropping by! I am a Franchise Coach and principle of LBC Franchising Corp. Our office is based in West Linn, Oregon; however, we serve clients globally through the efficient use of the internet, skype and teleconferencing.

As a Former Regional Development Franchise owner Terry executed the roles of both franchisor and franchisee.  As a business and franchise coach he understands the importance of both having and executing a well designed plan.  Terry brings this perspective to his practice where his heartfelt mission is to ensure that his clients find a concept that is a great fit for them AND the franchisor.

“My Mission is to Successfully Connect Ideas and People. For you, this means my commitment to focus on your lifestyle, financial and personal goals.”

As a franchise coach, I guide people like you who are motivated to work for yourself by helping you find a franchise business that meets your lifestyle, professional and financial needs.  My specialty is working with Executives who are either in transition from a successful corporate career or who remain employed, but are looking to diversify their investment strategy by integrating business ownership.

I work with reputable and successful franchise concepts.  This means they have a solid history or are solid up and comers who provide excellent training and the ongoing support which is so essential to creating success.  It also means their existing franchisees will express satisfaction with the training and support they receive and are running Financially Successful Franchises!

Working in conjunction with organizations that pride themselves on supporting the franchise industry, I can access the resources and contacts needed to determine what may be the best franchise opportunity for you.

Franchisors depend on me to bring to them qualified and motivated professionals who will contribute to the growth of their businesses. From a Franchisor’s perspective, I am a recruiter on their behalf and bring them only qualified candidates ready to join their franchise network.

Working directly with several hundred franchisors, I have a straight line to a diverse group of franchised concepts. For a quick overview of the types of franchises available to you, please go to Types of Franchises.

As your personal Franchise Coach, I will eliminate the mystery of how to identify, evaluate and acquire the best franchise business for you.

My 30+ years of business experience as an entrepreneur, marketer, and CEO will help me to help you assess your needs and align them with truly viable options.   You’ll find that I have “been there” and “done that” many times and many ways.

When you become a franchise owner, you will enjoy the fruits and lifestyle of owning your own business, yet you will not be alone.  A very high percentage of franchises SUCCEED because owners are in business for themselves, BUT not by themselves.  With excellent support and proven business models in place, franchising takes much of the risk out of starting up your own business.

Bottom line? I will coach you through the process until you find a concept that concept that meets your needs. While I will coach you on due diligence, you are responsible for conducting that diligence.  I encourage my clients to engage a Franchise Attorney and a CPA to ensure your decisions have had solid legal and financial guidance.
