The Franchise Expert

John Francis is an enthusiastic, engaging, and entertaining public speaker because he speaks from experience and he speaks from the heart. Franchising is in his blood, and his parents were true pioneers in the industry, turning their family haircutting business into a 1,000-salon franchise empire. He has been a franchisee and a franchisor, and has a deep understanding of the issues both face. Book John to speak at your event, and you and your franchisees will learn how to look at your business in new, positive, and profitable ways.

"I have a real passion for franchising done well."


“As I started planning our annual conference I had a clear vision of what I wanted. I needed someone relatable! The minute I saw John Francis speaking, I knew it was a perfect fit! John took the time to get to know our company, culture, brand and it really showed! His presentation was RELATABLE…ENGAGING & INSPIRING! We had lots of great feedback and we loved that he took the time to join our pre-conference event the night before so he could meet and chat with our franchisees. That’s someone who really cares!”
