About Me

Fred Roberts is currently a part-time real estate investor with projects completed in Philadelphia including Manayunk, Graduate Hospital and Pennsport. He is also a member of the Diversified Investors Group (“DIG”) and the South Jersey Real Investors Group (“SJREIA”). Prior to real estate investing, Fred was a Jackson Hewitt Tax Service franchisee who opened his first office in Jacksonville, Florida during the troubled tax season of 1995. Never being one to turn down a challenge, he opened the #1 new office in the country in 1996 and built his Florida operation into the #5 franchise in the U.S. In 1999, Fred was also one of the co-founders of the 200+ unit company store operations and in 2005 eventually partnered in a 65-unit operation in NJ, PA, DE and FL. He sold all of his Jackson Hewitt interests in May, 2011 and has done some part-time franchise consulting as a FranServe Affiliate. Fred has served on Franchise Advisory Boards and Advisory Councils in many capacities: 4 terms, once as 2-term President, once as Vice President and an at-large member. Twice he participated on critical franchise agreement negotiation committees. He is a loyal supporter of franchise systems and has helped franchisees through personal contacts, focus groups and regional/national meetings.
