Franchisees for all Global Franchise Group brands; Great American Cookies®, Pretzelmaker®, Marble Slab Creamery®, and Hot Dog on a Stick™ will receive real estate consulting and expertise from Andrew Margolick of ARM Consulting, LLC

February 18, 2016 // // ATLANTA – Finding and negotiating the ideal location for your franchise can be intimidating, but Global Franchise Group™ (GFG), the strategic brand management company and franchisor of Great American Cookies®, Pretzelmaker®, Marble Slab Creamery® and Hot Dog on a Stick™, is helping franchisees by offering consulting from Andrew Margolick, a leading expert in lease/renewals for both mall and off-mall release estate. 

“Global Franchise Group champions brands and the people who build them and we pride ourselves on offering our franchisees exceptional support and an unparalleled level of service for potential success,” said Tim Linderman, Chief Development Officer for GFG. “Andrew is a great asset to franchisees as they build their businesses. Based on his results and established contacts in commercial real estate, GFG offers Andrew’s consulting services to our franchisees.”

Unlike other franchisors, GFG will cover the cost for its existing and new franchisees to use Margolick to consult on business goals, review and tour potential markets and properties, prepare growth plans, set up broker networks, attend meetings with landlords, and negotiate lease renewals and extensions. Margolick is the president of ARM Consulting, LLC. He is a proven professional in the industry and has wide range of expertise from acquisition and ownership to tenant representation. He has worked on the real estate portfolios of many leading companies in the retail, grocery and restaurant sectors.

“Andrew helped me look at the fine print on my lease and negotiate the extra fees that can really add up,” said Andy Forman, a Marble Slab Creamery franchisee in Lubbock, Texas. “Thanks to Andrew, I knew I was communicating with the right people and I felt more powerful having him in my corner. He saved me time and made me feel confident during the process. Andrew will be an excellent asset to all GFG franchisees.” 

"In engaging Andrew Margolick, GFG has gained not only a highly experienced and effective retail real estate professional, but also an individual capable of adding value for store operators, said David Hull, Senior Vice President of Leasing for Jones Lang LaSalle. “Having Andrew, who we have known for more than 15 years, tells me that GFG is serious about their franchisees’ needs. As landlords, we recognize and appreciate that."
