Tom Raymond has been involved in business and franchising for over 30 years, with 25+ of those years in franchising. Tom has been in leadership roles in franchise development, operations, and training with franchisors in four different industries including: quick service restaurant, technology, home inspection and the home repair services industries. In addition, he owned an area development territory and his own franchise operation in the quick service restaurant industry.
With his vast experience across multiple industries, as well as his business ownership, Tom’s experience allows him to guide first time business owners as well as those with prior business ownership, through the intricate franchise due diligence process; the ultimate goal of a mutual agreement whereby the candidate finds the business fits their personal and financial objectives and the franchise feels the candidate is the right fit for the business.
Throughout Tom’s 25+ years in franchising, he has worked with hundreds of clients. He understands the fear and anxiety that is common with a major decision like business ownership; “he’s been there, done that, and got the t-shirt” which is why his experience is such a value to those he works with, helping guide them to make the decision that is right for them.
