Sean Falk

President

Sean Falk grew up in Monroe, Mich., and graduated from the University of Michigan with an engineering degree. After college, he served in the U.S. Marine Corps. He spent 8 months in the first Gulf War as an Infantry Officer. After returning from Operation Desert Storm, he was assigned to the Recon Battalion and spent time off the coast of Bosnia. During his time in the military he traveled extensively, training with military personnel from many different countries. His first experience with corporate America was with Stryker Instruments in his home state. It was there he got the bug to become a franchise owner. He began his franchising career by investing in cookie, pretzel, and children's retail stores. His most recent foray is Mexican restaurant franchise Salsarita's Fresh Cantina. Within 10 years of opening his first location, he had 12 different franchises up and running. He has an agreement to open at least two more stores in the near future, with a desire to open many more. He enjoys doing triathlons and has completed three Ironman competitions. Most importantly, he enjoys spending time with his family, playing games and doing other family activities. Today he lives back in Monroe with his wife Kecia and his three children, Keely, Colin, and Ian.

Brands:
Great American Cookies, Mrs. Fields Cookies, Pretzelmaker, Salsarita's Fresh Cantina

In-House or Out?: Focus On Your Best and Outsource The Rest

Franchising is all about outsourcing. Someone comes up with a great concept and essentially outsources its growth to franchisees so corporate can focus on its core task of system development.
