Gateway Franchising
Business Broker
Saint Louis County, MO

About Me

Gateway Franchising is a St. Louis, MO based franchise brokerage office. The firm employs two brokers, one of whom is an attorney by training with a background in franchising and M&A. The other is a M.B.A. with over 30 years of financial planning and management experience. Our mission statement calls for us to be radically different than most franchise brokers. We strive to add value to our clients’ franchising experience by doing a great deal of research and investigation into each business we represent before we present them to our clients. Our initial phase of due diligence includes a litigation check, an analysis of the franchisor’s system health, and an analysis of any available audited financial reports. We refuse to offer any companies that fail this initial phase of due diligence to ensure that only reputable businesses are presented. Our firm services clients on a national level. We represent dozens of brands in a number of industries, but we focus on dry cleaning, property restoration services, automotive services, and home health / senior care. As with all brokers, are services are paid for by the seller, never the purchaser, and federal law prevents the franchise from charging our clients more for their license because they worked with a broker.
