About me

Stevens-Matt-2-e1492106290777

My mission is to help YOU find freedom and flexibility in your life through business ownership and diversification.

 

Give me a call and let’s discuss the strategies that will work for you and YOUR goals!

Having placed franchisees since 1992, including as a FranChoice consultant since 2001, I use my extensive education, experience as an entrepreneur and motivator, and nearly three decades in franchising to help people realize their value as business operators through a candid, informed franchise evaluation.

 

Living in central Ohio with his family and their many adopted pets, I was named among the 2007 class of Columbus’ Forty Under 40 by Business First Magazine, and he’s enjoyed promoting entrepreneurial options as a guest speaker on local television and radio and in multiple and various print venues.

I entered the franchise industry in 1988 and have experienced diverse and formidable achievements as the franchisee, company executive and general manager, brand developer, trainer and teacher, consultant, and matchmaker.

 

Coast to coast, I have helped hundreds of people identify, evaluate, and succeed in the right businesses for them, and will show you how you can leverage your existing interests, skills, and abilities to achieve your goals and live your priorities.

 

My lengthy experience includes assisting the national brand development of several familiar and expanding international franchise systems.

Yes, me as a young executive!

Prior to growing franchise systems, I trained and coached individual franchisees in performance management and multiple operations efficiency skills.

 

As a young executive, I was known for his unrelenting commitment to franchisee and customer satisfaction, driving record results in turnaround environments for an international service franchise in northern New England and in Boston, for which he was twice named Quality GM of the Year. I completed turnarounds in the mid-Atlantic and the Midwest before focusing full-time on franchise consulting.  As a young franchisee, I achieved Rookie Franchisee of the Year before my 21st Birthday, then quickly tripled unit revenue.

 

I was born and raised in historic Alstead, New Hampshire, and attended The Loomis Chaffee School in Connecticut before exploring both Florida Southern College and Wake Forest University, achieving three business degrees.
