About Meg

Meg’s deep knowledge of franchising started in the 1990s, when she opened the first of five Great Clips salons in the Chicago area. As the president of the Chicago area owners’ co-op and liaison to corporate executive staff, Meg saw how others struggled because they bought a franchise that wasn’t the best fit. Now, after 10 years as a franchise consultant, Meg has helped hundreds determine whether business ownership, especially franchising, is the right vehicle for their personal and financial success.

With a degree in Counseling Psychology and work as a certified Mediator and hospice volunteer, Meg is attuned to the importance of asking the right questions and listening, which allows her candidates to hone their questions/concerns about business ownership into a refined investigation to match them with the best business opportunity.

A free, consultative approach.

As a franchise consultant, adviser and matchmaker, I work with entrepreneurs to help them to transition to business ownership suited to their talents and interests. I provide free franchise consultation service to individuals considering franchise ownership. When a match is found, I collect a finder’s fee — from the franchise, not the franchisee.

What it means to be part of the FranChoice network.

FranChoice is a company of consultants, all of whom bring some type of franchise experience to the table, whether it be franchise ownership, operations, training, or another kind of support. My role as a FranChoice consultant is to be a matchmaker. I work with individuals or investors who are looking for a business opportunity that’ll allow them to build wealth in franchising, and I work to help pair them with the right concept fit.

Through the FranChoice network, we work with gold standard franchise brands that are all vetted. We know who the founders are, we know who their operating partners are, and what their infrastructure looks like. We make sure that they’re sound investments and perfect concept matches for the budding entrepreneurs we provide consultation to day in and day out.
