The Franchise Story Podcast is an interview style podcast where we interview franchisees (guy that owns the McDonalds) and founders of the Franchise (Think Ray Kroc of McDonalds).
We talk about their lives before they got in to franchising, the lessons they learned along the way, how their mindsets have changed, what advice they would give their younger self, and what their plans for the future are.
The hosts are both successful Multi Unit and Multi Brand Franchisees w/ 20+ years of combined experience.
The show is casual, inviting, and fun. We want to inspire people to live their Franchise Dream. Whether it is to start their first franchise or expand from one concept to two (think Taco Bell and McDonalds).
Most episodes will be interviewing guests but some will be just the hosts talking about concepts/ideas/experiences.
Ideas of Impact/Tag Lines
Stop the Hustle, Stop the Grind (There is too much messaging out there about working hard and sacrificing. While that is part of the entrepreneurial journey it is not the point of the journey. Erik and I are very family focused. That is our #1 priority.)
We are in business for ourselves, not buy ourselves (One of the best parts of franchising is that you have other Franchisees and your Franchisor to learn from. It makes the entrepreneurial journey less lonely and more collaborative.)
Not all entrepreneurs are franchisees, but all franchisees are entrepreneurs (We are serving a sub segment of the business world)
Franchisees tend to be siloed in their own Franchise system. There is a much bigger world out there. Just because I own a restaurant that doesn't mean I can't learn from and connect with someone who owns Hotel, Gyms, Automotive Repair Shops, Etc. We want our podcast to connect people in that way.
