CANDIDATE AND INDUSTRY LEADER TESTIMONIALS

Jerry,  

My name is Jose Reyes, Houston, TX. I attended your workshop last week at the Worklife Institue. I t was a pleasure meeting you and I appreciate your time and expertise. I was wondering if yo had the presentation available via link and if so can you share it.

Had quick 15 minute conversation with Jerry today. I had hit a wall in what I knew and the continued steps forward for our business were clear as mud. Jerry helped give a quick synopsis of what a franchise model consists of and some of the darker issues that can come up. Would recommend to anyone unsure or not about the way forward. As a solopreneur its imperative that I keep focused and Jerry assisted with that. Jeffrey Wharton-Omaha, Neb.

Had a fantastic, enlightening conversation with Jerry today. My due diligence process and understanding for how the acquisition of a franchise works has been improved 10 fold.  Alexander Schultz-Source: Clarity

Everyone who is looking into going into business for themselves needs to take a look at the franchise approach. Jerry and his firm are the best I have seen at helping someone evaluate if a franchise is right for them or not. A well informed decision on choice of business structure is critical to the success of the business. Why would someone not take the time and evaluate one of the primary and often the best choices for their new venture. Use these folks and their quality advice to get it right.–Richard Schissler, Business consultant/mentor with Silver Fox Advisors

Hello Jerry, I cannot thank you enough for your assistance, professionalism and franchise expertise regarding my interest in owning a franchise. I searched the internet and was at the point of giving up because I did not know who I could or should trust. You gave me straightforward, unbiased professional advice which helped me find franchise choices I never even thought of. I also appreciate your help guiding me with franchise lenders! I am a successful franchise owner thanks to all your hard work and commitment to my specific needs.–Stu Schmidt, Pennsylvania

Jerry. I heard you on the Small Business Radio station several times. I felt comfortable contacting you because you spoke in an easy to understand language. As a former business owner, I knew I wanted a franchise just did not know which one? You took the time to provide me with several options you guided me throughout the entire process explained franchise terms I never heard of. I own a franchise in the home health care category and I know I own the right business for my future, thank you!–QuanTra, Houston

I am a highly skilled Veteran with twenty years of service. I was actively preparing myself for business ownership as I planned for separation from the military. Franchising seemed to offer more security with all the training, support and systems in place. I was introduced to Jerry by a colleague. Jerry took me from not knowing what was available to me as a Veteran to identifying a perfect franchise fit for me and my family with all the Veteran incentives. I had IRA funds which Jerry was able to help me utilize those funds without any penalties.Today, I am the proud owner of a growing franchise in the healthy snack category. –Hector Reyes, San Antonio

I was skeptical at first because I owned my own business and thought why would I need help with finding a franchise? I went online requested information and was overwhelmed with the amount of I received. One day I received a call from Jerry, we talked briefly, and Jerry laid out a plan and process then told me I have nothing to lose. I remember one thing he said that really hit home with me, this is a serious decision and I do not get paid until I do my job with complete transparency. I decided to give it a shot. There were bumps but Jerry worked through them with me and in the end I am a proud owner of a great little franchise business that keeps me busy and that I really enjoy owning. –Bobby Tibbs, Plano TX

I work for a large Utility company in New England and also owned my own Plumbing business for 10 years. I wanted a secure business for my son who was graduating from college. I got a call from Jerry and he made sense. He told me there was no magic bullet and that together we would find the right franchise. My wife, son and I followed Jerry’s lead until we arrived at a franchise we felt was the best for us. Together we analyzed the business model, spoke with the owners, and discussed the process to ownership. It took us about 6-8 weeks to decide we are now the top grossing franchise nationally. You want someone to make sense of franchising, introduce you to the top resources so you get answers and not the hype then I recommend speaking with Jerry. –Larry Sousa, New England

My view of you if anything only strengthened in the way you handled this process. I appreciate your continued support and look forward to talking again soon.–David Grossman, President – Renue Systems, Inc. (Formerly National Appeal), 1102 N. Main St. – Lombard, IL 60148

This is Tom Yuhas, I'm the Vice President of Franchise Development for SparkleWash International the Commercial Pressure Washing Experts. I've been with Sparkle Wash since the spring of 2000. I recently had the good fortune to work closely with BAI broker Mr. Gerald Pollio. From March 4th thru April 6th Jerry and I collaborated on a candidate that lived in York County, Pennsylvania. During this time Jerry displayed exceptional professional diligence and courtesy both towards the candidate and me. The three of us were in constant communication and worked in harmony to guide the candidate to a business solution that best served his needs and ambitions. Now, in this particular case the candidate felt another business opportunity was more appropriate, and selected to go with them. Nonetheless, I was still pleased with the overall encounter. Jerry and I are both primarily interested in finding an opportunity that is in the client's best interest. I look forward to working with Jerry in the future. He has become a friend and a trusted business partner. If you are looking for an impartial business broker to help guide you, I strongly recommend Mr. Pollio. He will have your beast interest at heart - and I respect that.–Thomas E. Yuhas, MA Vice President, Franchise Development SparkleWash International
