ZorForum Awards First Franchise to Industry Expert John Francis

Leading National Peer Sharing and Networking Franchise Gears Up for Accelerated Growth After Awarding First Franchise to “Johnny Franchise”

August 04, 2021 // Franchising.com // CLEVELAND, Ohio - ZorForum, a “first-of-its-kind” peer sharing and networking franchise connecting emerging franchisors with the tools, resources, and knowledge they need to thrive, recently announced that John Francis, a leading franchise expert, consultant, and advisor with more than 30 years of experience, has been awarded their very first franchise.

Affectionately known as “Johnny Franchise” by his peers, Francis has been helping franchisors and franchisees reduce risks and improve results for decades via his Next Level Franchise, Inc. consulting business. He believes he can take his lifelong passion for coaching and mentorship to the next level as a ZorForum franchisee.

“You have little margin for error when you’re trying to build a franchise system from the ground up and ZorForum is the gamechanger those emerging franchisors desperately need,” said Francis. “For far too long, it’s taken those entrepreneurs many years to ‘earn’ the access they need to surround themselves with smart people who can help them thrive. ZorForum accelerates all that. Every member is directly connected to an ecosystem of experts they need to know to figure out this complex world of franchising. I am excited to help all ZorForum members get on their fast tracks to success.”

According to Stan Friedman, ZorForum Co-Founder and Managing Member, John Francis is the perfect fit as “franchise #1.”

“‘Johnny Franchise” is a nickname that John has earned,” said Friedman. “Few people have positively impacted the lives of more emerging franchise leaders than John Francis over the past thirty years and we’re excited to welcome him to the ZorForum family. He has built and led countless franchise advisory boards over the years, so he knows exactly how to assemble groups of talented entrepreneurs eager to help each other. That experience/skill set, and a passion for franchising, is what we are looking for in ZorForum franchisees. John Francis is the embodiment of all that and more.”

“There has been a steady stream of inquiries for weeks as more and more people are hearing about ZorForum,” said Friedman. “I’m already speaking with dozens of emerging franchise leaders who want to become members, and many of my peers have expressed interest in becoming franchisees. Collectively, we’re building a vibrant and inclusive community that fills a void for emerging franchisors, and we couldn’t be more excited.”
