Veteran NFL Pro Bowler Lee Woodall Becomes First Roni Deutch Tax Center Franchise Consultant;
Plans to Educate Former Pro Athletes about Transitioning to Life after Sports
June 02, 2008 // Franchising.com // Sacramento, CA – Just one year after the nation's "Tax Lady" launched a franchise opportunity carrying her popular name brand, Roni Deutch, America's most recognized tax attorney, announced that she awarded former NFL Pro Bowler Lee Woodall the distinction of being the first Franchise Consultant of the Roni Deutch Tax Center™ Franchise Consultant Program.
Lee Woodall, a well-known veteran NFL® pro bowler that collectively played nine seasons with the San Francisco 49ers®, Carolina Panthers®, and Denver Broncos®, said he was attracted to the Roni Deutch Tax Center franchise based on its name credibility and ability to help professional athletes assimilate to life after sports by providing a recession-proof business opportunity that fits the lifestyle of the athlete.
"As a former NFL player, I know first-hand that there are no organizations to help the player transition to life after football," says Woodall. "By teaming with the Roni Deutch Tax Center, I plan to educate former professional athletes about this tax franchise opportunity because its business model closely matches their way of life. The high motivation, understanding of life's ups-and-downs, and passion for competition, combined with elements of team work, dedication, training, and a familiar six month work schedule, make former athletes exceptional candidates for tax franchise owners."
The Roni Deutch Tax Center Franchise Consultant Program works to incorporate Franchise Consultants throughout the country to seek out and work with individuals looking to start their own business. These individuals are responsible for sharing the benefits of owning a Roni Deutch Tax Center franchise, and need to ensure that the franchise prospect has the necessary potential and right qualifications, outlook, and long-term goals to be successful within the system. When a serious match is found, the Franchise Consultant refers the candidate to the Franchise Development team, who works with them and the new prospect on the closing process.
"As a former collegiate athlete, I was ecstatic when we were contacted by Lee Woodall and his wife Rachel," said Roni Deutch, President and Founder of Roni Deutch Tax Center. "By understanding his vision to help former athletes transition to life after sports, I realized that as the first Franchise Consultant in the tax center system, his efforts would focus on an un-tapped market that will be fruitful not only for the Woodalls, but vital to the growth and notoriety of the tax center franchise."
Franchise Consultants are taught the advantages of the Roni Deutch Tax Center franchise system, and learn the rules that govern franchise sales so they are well-suited to present the franchise program. Consultants are trained at the National Training Academy, taught the proven sales techniques, and are armed with persuasive presentation tools. Also, they will have the ability to work directly with Roni Deutch and the prospect through the process of finalizing a franchisee deal. Franchise Consultants can operate their consulting business from a home office or small professional office space, and can work full- or part-time with no inventory or employees to manage. Franchise Consultants earn a generous referral fee for their efforts.
"The growth potential for a Franchise Consultant is unlimited because the industry is recession-proof, and growing at an incredible rate," said Ms. Deutch. She also added, "I'm seeking ambitious, driven individuals with an entrepreneurial spirit who are as passionate about helping people find the right business opportunity as I am. It's my name and credibility on the door."
While many start-up franchises are launched every year, few fare as well as Roni Deutch Tax Center, launched by the famed "Tax Lady" Roni Deutch in the spring of 2007. Off and running, the franchise opened 17 tax preparation centers across the nation and awarded the rights to an additional 170 in just its first year of operation.
Roni Deutch has built her reputation as one of the most successful tax lawyers through hard work and dedication to the needs of taxpayers. Her competitive spirit and insatiable work ethic has made her a household name with one out of three American adults knowing the name Roni Deutch. Through her years of practice, she saw that many of her clients' tax problems were caused by sloppy and unprofessional tax return preparation. Roni decided it was time to put her experience to work for taxpayers across the country. The Roni Deutch Tax Center is now filling the need for competent tax return preparation. An affordable franchise opportunity, a Roni Deutch Tax Center franchisee can expect to pay somewhere between $59,000 and $93,000 to open a tax center with the average investment being about $65,000 for one location. Additionally, Roni Deutch Tax Center has recently launched its Area Developer program, in which entrepreneurs can own, operate and develop 50 Roni Deutch Tax Center locations in their local market.
