The Flynn Franchise Group is the natural outcome of Roger Flynn’s decades of experience in selling franchises and Kathy Flynn’s experience in developing and maintaining corporate training programs as well as customer service and team-centered engagement skills.  Together, they are able to not only successfully sell franchise locations, but they are also there in the day-to-day development process, working with the franchising company to create simple but complete support systems.

The Flynn Franchise Groups believes in keeping things uncomplicated.   The goal is to provide all the information a franchisor or franchisee might need for success and to keep it easy to find, easy to understand and easy to put to use right away.  Our franchise support systems kick in from Day 1 for the franchisee.

In addition, we build a franchise based on the systems and brand you have.  We work to make the strong parts easy to translate into your franchise program, and we work with you to shore up anything you may need a little help with.

We work as a partner with you in building your franchise program, and then, we continue to support you by selling your model and helping you grow your franchise family.
