Summary Style


In this episode of Black Businesses Matter, I speak with Chris Wilson, the President of Legacy Franchise Ventures. Legacy Franchise Ventures (LFV) is a full-service franchise consulting and development firm that helps others identify and research franchise opportunities that present a true opportunity for success for their clients and their target markets. Chris details how he got his start in franchising. After being laid off, he realized the importance of multiple strands of income and began to foster a passion for franchising that began at the ripe age of 14. He did the research, found one that worked, and got that franchise up and running. 

Chirs emphasizes the benefits of franchising. When you invest in a franchise you invent a proven model allowing you to take some of the guesswork out of owning a business. He also speaks to the community that is built through investing in a franchise because others franchisees that have taken those steps can aid you in your journey. Chirs also highlights the diversity in the types of businesses you can invest in and open as a franchisee. There is more than just fast food. 

If you are interested in learning more about the process of franchising and its benefits this is the episode for you.

Chris offers complimentary franchise consultations to folks looking to invest in a franchise but are not quite sure where/how to start. Chris also offers the same for business owners who are thinking about franchising an existing business.
