“I would like to personally thank you and your staff for all your work in setting our franchise group.  Now that we are up and running I am very excited about the opportunity and possibilities for growth that this affords us.

When we first met and discussed franchising imageOne Uniforms, I was skeptical that this would be a good fit for us.  I was concerned that the amount of work involved would be too great, and that the benefits would not outweigh the costs.  But, I moved ahead anyway after I spoke to a few people about the integrity of Franchising Unlimited and did some further investigation about the industry.  Today, I feel completely differently about franchising.

First, you and your staff made the process extremely easy and fast.  We had little or no interruption to our business, and as a matter of fact we continue to see record growth through the whole process.

Second, as for the cost, our very first franchise owner found us $30,000 in savings on his very first day with the franchise!  Talk about benefits outweighing costs, it doesn’t get much better than that!

Lastly, I want to thank you for the education you gave me on franchising and your honesty and openness throughout the process.  You have become a good friend through the process and I look forward to working with to in the future as we build and train our team at imageOne Uniforms and IFG.”

The first franchisee truly made a roll of the dice and quit his full-time job (with benefits, retirement, etc.) to acquire this franchise. In his first year of business he was able to pay off his $55,000 franchise fee, his vehicle and his home.  imageOne Uniforms currently has franchises in major markets like Columbus, Cleveland and Pittsburgh.

“I am writing this letter to extend my sincere gratitude and appreciation to Dave Hillman and Franchising Unlimited.  My introduction into franchising our family business not only met expectations, but also completely exceeded them.  I met with Mr. Hillman to discuss the procedure for franchising.  At first I was very reluctant to release our family’s secret recipes, and worried about the ability to control any franchisee, however Franchising Unlimited was able to put me at ease.  Ultimately, the caliber of the Franchise agreement that was drafted for Belleria by Franchising Unlimited proved to be unmatched by any other type of agreement.  It is with great confidence that I say this: Franchising Unlimited is a true expert in the field of franchise development.

The good new does not stop there, however.  When it comes to franchise sales, they are top-notch.  Having only been offering franchises for approximately 6 months, we, along with Franchising Unlimited were able to sell 11 franchises!!  The prospecting, screening and qualification process the franchisees underwent was more than thorough.

Franchising is a complex matter, and was completely foreign to me, but after dealing with Dave Hillman and the staff, I was and still am impressed with their continuous knowledge. Truly this firm has taken all the guesswork out of making the decision of whether or not to franchise.  To this day, the decision to franchise was difficult, but choosing the most knowledgeable, professional and reputable firm was the most important decision to determine success.”

Belleria Pizzeria was established in 1953 and began franchising in 1999 by the second generation in the family business.  There are currently 15 Belleria franchises in the region.

“I decided to expand my operation with a franchise division in June of 1998.  I researched a number of firms, all very generous with their time, all providing references.  The investment would be significant, and I called every reference.

These calls were the reason for my choosing Franchising Unlimited.  David Hillman gave me an extensive list of his clients.  Some extremely successful, and a few that failed.  Without exception, every client that I talked to praised David’s knowledge, advice and commitment.

I worked closely with Dave in preparing the Franchise Agreement, FTC Circular and Operations Manual.  David’s ability to communicate the nuances of franchising, coupled with his decades of experience in the franchise industry made this a learning experience that I enjoyed greatly.  We sold five franchises the first year with significant profits.

I am proud to say that I am now in my eighth year with Franchising Unlimited, and David Hillman.  I have tremendous respect for Dave.  I highly and unquestionably, recommend David Hillman and Franchising Unlimited.”
