The Affordable Business Partner is a Division of First Step Business & Franchise Consulting Inc.

Thanks for visiting,

I have been involved in the buying and the selling of businesses and franchises, in one capacity or another since 1978. 

During these years I have discovered that though many people have aspirations of starting a business, most people are not sure how to start. The two most commons issues that I hear from people who are interested in becoming franchise owners are, they don't know who to trust, and what questions should they be asking when starting the due diligence process in finding the best franchise fit for them and their family.         

How To Find A Good Franchise? 

Before I discuss our services and how I can help you, I want to make it clear that starting a franchise does not guarantee you success. You do! You will need to ask the right questions not only of the franchise but of yourself as well. If you are not willing to put in the time, the effort and the marketing into growing a business, then perhaps you are not business owner material.

Our job is to work with you in making sure that you understand the in's and out's of becoming a franchise owner before you invest your money. We will discuss things like. market saturation, marketing, commoditization, income expectations, and how to increase your odds in being successful. 

Once we work through, the questions of the whats, hows, and the why's of becoming a franchise owner, we move onto the when. When are you ready to start? Once we establish that, our joint goal is to search franchise models that may be a great fit for you and your family.

I look forward to meeting with you soon.
