The West Business Group, LLC.

My goal is to provide complimentary franchise consulting to educate potential entrepreneurs on the benefits of owning a franchised business as an option to other forms of business ownership.


The West Business Group, LLC.


We are America’s premier source for self-employment options and franchising information and education.  We provide our clients with the most comprehensive and meaningful guidance available anywhere.  We have shown countless people the opportunity to explore a wide range of business models, helping them to discover rewarding careers, take control of their lives, create financial freedom, and experience fulfilling lifestyles.  Our mission is to represent our client’s interests above all others.  


Our Purpose


We help you formulate and define goals to provide a clear picture of what you are trying to accomplish.  We also introduce specific franchise and business models that may be best suited to those goals and provide you with guidance and coaching in the evaluation of those options.  We work with a large variety of franchisors and various re-sales opportunities, covering a broad and diverse spectrum of business models, and accommodating a wide range of investment levels, even for those with limited financial resources.


Our Discovery Process


Educational Compartment – Our view is that a business is a vehicle to help you accomplish your goals. In this phase, we focus on assisting you to define your goals, needs, and expectations – what type of lifestyle you desire.  We provide you with coaching and education to help you gain more knowledge about becoming self-sufficient and determine whether it is something that you should pursue further.


Validation Compartment – Based on information developed during the Educational Compartment, we will present franchise and business models that will allow you to discover if they meet your goals, needs, and expectations.   We will then introduce you to representatives of those organizations and provide you with guidance and coaching as you conduct a thorough, logical, and methodical evaluation of the models.  Our process is designed to help you evaluate facts and information, rather than emotions or perceptions.  


Our Coaching


We provide guidance and direction in the evaluation of the business models.  We serve as a sounding board to help you evaluate the information you gather during the discovery phase.  We will help you overcome emotional detours you may encounter that may hinder or even stop your progress.  We will deter you from making decisions on the basis of emotions and perceptions encouraging you to focus instead on factual information.


Our Franchise and Business Models


We work with hundreds of franchised organizations and business opportunities, covering a diverse set of business models and a wide range of investment levels with territories available across the United States and some international opportunities.  In addition to single-unit opportunities, many of our franchisors offer multiple-unit, master franchise, and regional development opportunities.


The West Business Group has firmly established a relationship with our franchisors.  These relationships allow us access to their key personnel, which facilitates our ability to serve as an effective interface between you and the franchisor.  In short, we can get you in the door, raise the attention of the franchisors, and serve as an advocate on your behalf to the franchisors.
