Having run his own successful business for a number of years in a similar field Mark’s objectives were clear.

2. Be able to substantiate the revenue and earnings possible for a franchisee by providing them with a franchise territory map that not only showed the franchise territory boundary but showed them where their target customers were located.
Taking this open and honest approach with franchisees Mark is able to clearly show each prospective franchisee exactly where their franchise territory is, the boundary line and provide them with a concrete view of their revenue and earnings potential.
