34: From Fired Intern to Founder, with Kristen Gale- The Franchise Story Podcast


In this episode we’re with Kristen Gale, founder of The Ten Spot, to talk about how she started out in franchising and some of the best practices she implemented to grow the company to 55 franchise locations throughout Canada and the US.


Kristen started out in the corporate world, where she got fired twice! But this opened up an opportunity for her to step into her entrepreneurial side. Along the way, she had times where things seemed to fall into place and times where she really worked hard to get it to where her company’s people, purpose and culture is right now.
