TEAM Rennick leads the way for Canadian Franchise to expand in the U.S.
TEAM Rennick, franchise advocates, mentors and consultants, have announced that Frames N Panes, a franchise based in Victoria, Canada has retained the company’s services to help increase the number of U.S. franchises.
There are currently 12 franchises throughout Canada and one in the United
States. Cory Kohlman, president and founder of Frames N Panes, has been
diligently working to expand in the U.S., but has found the path to be a bit
treacherous for the uninitiated.
“Dick Rennick himself, the founder and CEO of TEAM Rennick, came up to see me for three days, and he had the answers for all of my issues,” Kohlman said. “He is a straight shooter, who tells it like it is, and gets the job done.”
“At TEAM Rennick, the first step we take with each client is to determine exactly what their needs are,” Rennick said. “Cory and I discussed his situation and we determined that it would be beneficial for me to come see him, and dig in.”
Although Mr. Kohlman has enjoyed franchise success in Canada, he was not sure how to proceed with his launch into the U.S. “I didn’t know U.S. law, and did not consult a franchise advisor before embarking on my expansion plans, which has turned out to be a costly mistake,” he said. “I would recommend first and foremost that any Canadian franchise expanding into the states get a franchise advisor. Dick is very knowledgeable in all aspects of franchising.”
Acting on a recommendation from a trusted source in Toronto, Mr. Kohlman called a few franchise advisors, and decided to work with TEAM Rennick because, “They were right there, eager to answer my questions and get on board right away. TEAM Rennick is helping me in all aspects of building my brand in the U.S., from reviewing my contract to putting together a sales team, to revising my website.” (kbp)
