For a variety of reasons, over two years ago, I decided to sell a couple of our Minnesota stores. During the 2 plus years, we had these stores listed with Papa Murphy's Corporate, and other selling platforms. We virtually had NO interested parties contact us. Upon hearing that Steve Millard had a new business venture, I gave him a call. After learning how Steve would help us sell our stores, I listed our locations with him and Franchise Sales Connection. We worked with Steve and his team on the listing and within the first week of Franchise Sales Connection marketing our stores, we received seven (7) leads. To date, we have received twenty-six (26) qualified leads from Franchise Sales Connection. As of today, I am happy to report that we have a signed agreement for the sale of our two (2) locations and working towards a closing. If we decide to sell additional locations, my FIRST call will be to Steve Millard at Franchise Sales Connection. Do yourself a favor and learn from my experience, CALL STEVE!
