At 23-years-old and right after walking out of his job in the banking industry, Brian bought his first franchise. He struggled to build a business the old school way for 10 years but grew his business to 19 locations and $3 million in revenue – breaking organization records.
He purchased another franchise with the development rights for four locations in the fitness industry. After he discovered the power of social media to grow his brand, he launched three locations cash flow positive from day one.
Peter knew at an early age that business ownership was the right path for him. He purchased his first franchise in 2011 and built that organization to five units with $1 Million in revenue in less than three years.
Then, he purchased a development agreement for three franchise locations 2,000+ miles from his home. How was he able to do this? Social media marketing, of course.
He was one of Franchise Ramp’s first customers. He discovered his passion for social media marketing and used it to create cash flow in his first location two weeks before opening the doors.
