Daily Life of a Franchisee

Predominately working with small businesses, you will be building new relationships through calls, direct marketing and networking events. With the need for managers and business owners to see the product first-hand, you will need to balance a significant amount of time out on the road with the essential management of the business, which you would be able to run from your own home office.
