Welcome! You've come to the right spot.
Don Taylor, Experienced Franchise Industry Consultant.
As a long-standing industry veteran, there are many ways I bring value to
my clients. Given my background as a franchise owner, experience as a business-building executive, and extensive work as a broker, I'm contracted
for a wide variety of services.
Buyers: I'm passionate about helping people get into business for themselves. And having been a franchisee several times over, I know exactly how overwhelming and complicated the entire process can be. So, I created the Search Like a CEO program, where I educate, coach, and empower prospective business owners and investors to make well-informed decisions.
Business Clients: Franchisors, licensors, and private companies engage me for management consulting services to evaluate, implement, and oversee their business processes. I help them grow, develop, and position themselves to realize their vision, whatever that may be. And depending on the project, I may also serve as an investor, executive, or board member myself.
In every case, I bring a servant leadership approach and tailor my services
to meet clients right where they are at.
Sound interesting? Let's talk. I'd love to hear your story and see if I can help.
