Multi-Unit Franchisee Insight – Key Influences & Accomplishments

We talk to successful multi-unit operators regularly here at Franchise Update Media. These busy on-the-go people share great insight and wisdom with us through our profile stories in Multi-Unit Franchisee magazine. Here, from our archives, are some insightful responses from some of these franchisees.


Formative influences/events:
My involvement in EO (Entrepreneurs’ Organization), the IFA, and attending Multi-Unit Franchising Conferences.

Key accomplishments:
Featured two consecutive years in the Inc. 5000 annual list of America’s fastest-growing private companies; 2015 IFA Franchisee of the Year, recognizing outstanding contributions to franchising; University of Houston Cougar 100 list of fastest-growing businesses owned or led by alumni, 2014–2018; Massage Heights Regional Developer of the Year, 2009–2012; multiple awards from Amazing Lash Studio including the 2017 Regional Developer Top Sales Award, 2017 and 2018 Multiple Leadership Award, 2017 Highest Performing Studio Award, and 2017 The Trailblazer Award.
 JD Busch, multi-unit franchisee of Amazing Lash Studio and Massage Heights


Key accomplishments:
1) The continued growth of KBP Foods, which has been fueled through the successful integration of more than 30 acquisitions across 24 states, onboarding more than 14,000 employees. 2) The formation of KBP Cares, a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization/employee assistance program affiliated with and supported by KBP Foods and its employees. At KBP, we believe that no employee should have to face a critical hardship on their own. Several years ago, we created KBP Cares as an innovative way to scale the company’s ability to provide assistance for employees facing critical hardships. For those who have nowhere else to turn, KBP Cares is a lifeline. With support from employees from across the company, we provide hope, support, and relief for KBP employees and their families during challenging times. KBP Cares is truly a passion project for my wife, Stephanie Kulp, who serves as president and played an instrumental role in getting the program up and running. 3) The opportunity to help nearly 40 key members of management to meaningful equity positions within KBP, allowing them to reap the financial rewards of their hard-earned efforts.
 Michael Kulp, multi-unit franchisee of KFC and Taco Bell (KBP Foods)
