Meg Schmitz, Franchise Guru or self-proclaimed cross between an executive recruiter, wealth manager and therapist is a champion for leaping out of the comfort nest.  Thirty years ago, Meg owned a Great Clips franchise in the Greater Chicago area. She then grew that to two, three, and ultimately five locations in eleven years.  Her reputation of success grew as her Great Clips achieved steady growth with low turnover. She received a fantastic offer for her five-unit business, which she accepted. She then walked away with generous compensation, armed with almost two decades of lessons learned in her journey of franchise ownership.   As her professional network grew with board memberships at noteworthy organizations, her next steps were clear.

We are meeting with Meg Schmitz.  Meg is a franchising consultant through FranChoice — her deep knowledge of franchising started in the 1990s, when she opened the first of five Great Clips salons in the Chicago area. As the president of the Chicago area owners’ co-op and liaison to corporate executive staff, Meg saw how others struggled because they bought a franchise that wasn’t the best fit. Now, after 10 years as a franchise consultant, Meg has helped hundreds determine whether business ownership, especially franchising, is the right vehicle for their personal and financial success.
Meg’s unique perspective in the industry comes from not only her own experience as a franchisee, but also because her degree in Counseling Psychology and work as a certified Mediator and hospice volunteer.  Meg is attuned to the importance of asking the right questions and listening, which allows her candidates to hone their questions/concerns about business ownership into a refined investigation to match them with the best business opportunity.
