“Ray is one of the elite players in the industry. To achieve this it takes a unique command of consulting capability blended with knowing the franchise industry from the inside-out.

At the end of the day he enables people who have the confidence that it takes to;

1. Make a timely important decision.
2. Be successful owning a franchise.

He has introduced me to top-talent for years and our franchise system has benefited from his work.”

Steve Marcus

Director , Regis Corporation

“I have had the opportunity to work with Ray for over 8 years. We worked together to assist clients in realizing their dreams of business ownership (Franchising). Ray has the dedication, integrity, and professionalism that is imperative in this line of work.”

Bob Johnston

Director, Fibrenew

“I first met Ray at a Franchise Expo in Washington, DC. Over the ensuing weeks, we discussed a variety of different franchise options. Even though I didn’t buy a franchise at that time, a few years later when I was ready to look again I checked in with Ray. I did so because he’s a good guy who knows the world of franchising very well and doesn’t pressure you or engage in overly aggressive sales tactics. I eventually did settle on a business opportunity and Ray helped guide me through the process. I would recommend him to someone interested in exploring the world of franchising.”

Douglas Dickstein

President, Right at Home Glendale

“Ray is an outstanding business consultant. Ray helped me evaluate franchise opportunities. His work was well organized, timely and thoughtful. Ray is an excellent communicator with a wealth of experience. I would not hesitate to recommend Ray to others that are considering franchise opportunities. Thank you, Ray.”

Earl Evens

Executive Director, AgeWell Institute at Baptist Health System

“I have had the privilege to know Ray for most of the 20 + years I have spent in franchising and also had the opportunity to work with him directly as a franchise consultant for about 7 to 8 of those years. Without a doubt, if I were to build a dream team in the franchising industry, Ray would be on that list. Not only does he know his subject matter inside and and out, but his work ethic and business integrity is flawless and he is very results driven. I would not hesitate one second to recommend Ray.”

Randy Loeb

VP Franchise Development, ARCpoint

“Thanks to Ray, Derrick and I found a direct mail franchise to invest in: UMS for Central Chicago. Ray was dedicated to helping us choose a business that fit our lifestyle, budget, and skill sets.
