He did a great job of working within what I considered pretty restrictive parameters. The fact that he could find a business that was the right fit reduced all my fears. He takes the fear and mystique out of starting your own business!” Tom Henry - Mr. Handyman “Greg is awesome! He’s professional and honest and knows what he’s talking about. The fact that he’s owned several successful franchises boosted my confidence in him. He addressed all of my concerns directly and reassured me to take my time, not rushing into anything.” Denise Williamson - DNS Leasing “He has been extremely helpful. Greg put me in touch with the right people to make this happen for me. I didn’t want to cash in on my retirement in order to finance my business, and I didn’t have to. He helped me find the right financing and he’s even helped me find leads. He’s genuine and sincere. I highly recommend him!” Tessie Fox - Wildwood Financial “The Franchise Network questionnaire confirmed what I already knew, that my skills were in taking care of the business side and delegating the operation of a shop to others. Greg saw that was what I wanted. He gave me a couple of suggestions and I decided on Great Clips. It just seemed to fit. He was extremely helpful.” Denis Cleary – Great Clips “I attended Greg’s seminar and felt he was very professional. I think Franchise Network is an effective way of finding a perspective business.” Ray Davis - Rainsoft of Reno “He impressed me as being a reasonable person and easy to work with. I enjoyed and appreciated the fact that Greg was more of a consultant than a salesperson as he helped me narrow down my options.” Kim Ledford - Taco Del Mar Restaurant “My biggest concern about purchasing a franchise was picking the right one — the one that was going to suit my skill set and meet my personal needs. Greg was very helpful in giving me the tools to make that decision, and I didn’t feel like I was compromising my interest levels. He was very resourceful and is very knowledgeable about the franchise industry.” Anthony Galvez – Island Ink Jet “Greg advised us to do our homework and be diligent about checking out each franchise. Great Clips was a good match for us. We were very happy with the assistance he gave us.” Steve and Cheryl Houston - Great Clips “Greg is a very good communicator and someone who will listen, which is hard to find. The fact that he takes the time to learn who his client is and what they want is very valuable. He’s also someone who will be honest and truthful with you, identifying both the positives and negatives of being a business owner. His professionalism is excellent!” Ron Suchan - Rainsoft of Sacramento “When Greg profiled me he was so right on the money. He knew what I wanted to do. He was so helpful in every way that I knew within a week, this was what I wanted to do. And the most valuable thing is now; I’m able to create a financial future that’s going to provide for my family.” Pati Austin - Post Net Greg took the time to really understand what my wife and I wanted in a business. He gave us a variety of options that fit our parameters and then he helped us really understand the questions we needed to ask to fully evaluate which business would be best for us. His help through the process made us very confident about our final choice. After we made our choice, he helped us find many of the resources necessary to get started. We might have been able to go through this process ourselves, but Greg made it easy and enjoyable. Ultimately we believe that his help will make us more successful. Randy Abernathy – Vanguard Commercial Master Franchisee – Sacramento After attending Greg's seminar in Stockton, I felt that Greg is very experienced and honest about his advice. He told me to take things slow and evaluate each possibility from every angle. I'm very happy to select Batteries Plus with Greg's help." Singh Bhinder – Batteries Plus Greg helped me determine what business opportunities best suited my personality, needs, and situation. Based upon his careful analysis, he presented me with several matches. With his help, I was able to find the perfect opportunity for me that I would not have otherwise been exposed to. I am now doing what I want to do and on the path that I want to be on for the first time in my adult life. Thanks for all of the help Greg! Damon Bird – 24Seven Vending All my life I've dreamt of owning my own business, going as far as attending night school to obtain my MBA a few years ago. But I still did not muster the courage to open a business. Last fall, I read an article, an interview with Greg Roquet of FranNet, in the Business Journal. Greg described how he helps people explore the possibilities of franchising and about how he talks 3 out of every 4 people he consults with out of purchasing a franchise because it is not for everyone. Shortly after I read the article, a long-time friend of mine who is an entrepreneur recommended I talk to Greg because I wanted to own my own business. First the article and then my friend's recommendation convinced me that Greg was an honest man who would be ethical, not someone trying to "sell" me. I contacted Greg, who was very responsive. After we met, he provided me with a very informative on-line seminar that really opened my eyes to the possibility that I could do this---I could own my own business! Greg helped me explore several different models of franchises, helping me understand the business models. As I worked my way through speaking with different franchisors, (and they all spoke very highly of Greg and the quality of the potential franchisees he connected them with) Greg helped me understand more clearly what would be required, the pros and cons, but without any bias or influence. He let me make up my mind and here I am---I will be opening my very own business in a few short weeks! How do you thank someone adequately for helping you achieve your lifelong dream? Thank you, Greg. Pamela McArthur, Express Personnel Services "Greg delivers far more than was expected by me. He recognizes that it is a big decision and a lifestyle change for most people to start their own business. He is very sensitive to the needs of his clients, and is genuine in his methodical approach of helping match clients with the right business opportunities...from there he encourages you to do the due diligence that is necessary before making such an important decision. I highly recommend him!" Steve Frysle Regional Developer for Sport Clips “I was looking at alternative options outside of the “Corporate America” environment that would deliver the lifestyle I was looking for and compliment my skill set. Greg provided great options that met my needs. More importantly his level of integrity, knowledge and consultive style made it easy to take the leap of faith from employee to business owner. Now, I am on the road to building a profitable business that will provide a long and prosperous financial future." Debbie Awil - Sanford Rose Associates, Sacramento “When my wife and I decided we wanted to own our own business we started the investigation process which led us to Greg. Greg provided invaluable guidance and support as we sifted through the overwhelming amounts of information required to make a good decision in buying a business that was right for us. Through the entire experience Greg acted as an advisor and person who is truly concerned with our success in making a good decision. I have since recommended others to Greg knowing that he will treat my trusted friends with the same genuine care and respect”. Don and Carolyn Black – The Cleaning Authority
