The You Network


The YOU Network is a resource unlike any other found in franchising. Its consultant members are ONLY the most senior, qualified consultants in the industry – ALL of whom have owned their own business and can speak from both experience and the heart. They have all “been there, done that” and have now pledged to share their experience and knowledge with you – because they love their industry and want to see both it and any new owners that enter franchising continue to thrive – and not be misled by unprofessional resources.

Karl started his corporate life with Marriott Corporation in hotel management in the early 1980’s, and moved from there to a small Swiss real estate consortium managing commercial property in NYC. After several years in “the City” he was offered a chance to get back into the hospitality business as the Senior Manager of Training and Development with Howard Johnson Franchise System (HJFS). In 1987, he became the Director of Operation for New England, responsible for 68 HJFS lodges.

In 1988 he got the “itch” to buy his own business and in January of 1989 purchased a part ownership in New England Franchise Corporation (NEFC). (At the time, NEFC was a small master distributor of a handful of American Speedy Printing Centers.)

Today, Karl is the principle owner of NEFC, now representing Alliance Franchise Brands (Allegra Marketing*Print*Mail, Signs Now, Signs by Tomorrow, Image360, Insty Prints & American Speedy Printing Centers). His success can be directly attributed to the mission, “To enhance the value of the business we serve.” The New England region has racked up its share of awards within the Allegra Network, including the Operational Excellence Award for 2007, 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011 & 2012.

Karl and his wife Cynthia live in Hopkinton, Massachusetts, with their 13 children. Karl is active in his community having founded both the towns youth football and lacrosse programs, coached at every level from high school to youth sports and served as an elected Commissioner of Parks and Recreation.
