Making Dreams of Business Ownership a Reality

Rich Blanton and Phil Ketron started Franchise Consulting USA out of their desire to help others fulfill the dream of business ownership.  Both have an extensive sales, marketing and business ownership background which helps them guide prospective franchisees through the franchise buying experience. 

Rich serves as the President/CEO and brings a wealth of knowledge as it relates to the finer details of the franchise. Rich strives to know how each franchise works, good and bad, so that he can better lead our team in helping clients in the franchise buying process.  This approach has helped clients avoid costly mistakes and positioned them to make informed decisions.

Phil serves as the Vice President and provides coaching to prospective franchisees.  Having served as a SCORE and KOSBE mentor, he understands different types of business models and what it takes to be profitable.  Phil also serves as the primary contact should a franchisee need financial assistance.
