Fairway Divorce Solutions Opens Franchise in Northern Saskatchewan
August 11, 2009 // Franchising.com // Saskatoon, SK, - Fairway Divorce Solutions, Ltd. (Fairway), a leading alternative divorce solutions firm, today announced the expansion to Northern Saskatchewan of the Fairway Divorce Solutions® franchise.
"We are excited to be offering Northern Saskatchewan a new alternative to divorce. In the traditional system, divorce can be costly, and Fairway offers a strategic step-by-step process with win-win resolutions that saves time, money, stress and protects the children," said Karen Stewart, President and CEO of Fairway Divorce Solutions.
Carolyn Genest and Don Rosten are the new franchise owners who see significant value in offering Fairway's new divorce paradigm to families. Genest, the Northern Saskatchewan franchise's spokesperson, is currently the Chief Financial Officer for a tourism and hospitality company in Saskatoon, and also acts as the company's marketing director.
"After learning about Fairway's divorce paradigm through Dean Bergsma, the Edmonton Fairway franchise owner, we thought it was a fantastic opportunity. We felt that a company like Fairway would help keep people's integrity while going through a divorce," said Genest. "We have seen many people go through divorce, and there is a lot of animosity that follows years after. I fully appreciate the importance of a well-managed divorce, and the Fairway Process™ is a proven business model that I am proud to be a part of. This would be our way of giving back to the people of Saskatchewan."
Devin Baker and Tracy Kendel currently work in the Fairway office in Saskatoon as a Senior Negotiator and Client Manager, respectively. They work as a team to ensure that clients are guided through every step of The Fairway Process™ which was designed to help couples become more educated and informed throughout the divorce process so that couples are able to make rational, long-term life decision regarding finances, children and their own personal growth moving forward.
Although the Fairway Divorce office is located in Saskatoon, they have worked with couples throughout Saskatchewan. If one or both parties are unable to meet in person, they are engaged by telephone from beginning to end. No step is missed and no one person goes uninformed.
Fairway Divorce Solutions is the brainchild of Karen Stewart, whose turbulent divorce using the traditional system not only prompted her to open Fairway Divorce Solutions and design The Fairway Process™, but to pen her first self-help book, Clean Break: How to Divorce with Dignity and Move on with Your Life.
Established in 2006, Fairway Divorce Solutions offers a first-of-its-kind alternative to the traditional system of divorce by offering a new divorce paradigm that saves money, time, stress and protects the children. Charging a flat fee, Fairway Divorce Solutions uses a common sense step-by-step proven approach called The Fairway Process™. The Company is growing rapidly with franchises in Victoria, BC; Kelowna, BC; Edmonton, AB; Calgary, AB; and one in Saskatoon, SK.
