About the Franchise Advisory Service

The Franchise Advisory Service was formed in response to an underserved market in the industry for high-level, advanced education and training on purchasing a franchise. The options for purchasing a franchise are increasing exponentially, coupled with the amount of information available on each concept, which creates a great deal of data for franchise buyers to sift through. The Franchise Advisory Service recognized that there was a real need to assist the franchise buyers, therefore, we provide advanced research tools, consultative services and due diligence assistance, but also help prospective franchisees qualify for the franchises they desired to invest in.

We have partnered with experts in the industry and created a company that is built on helping you achieve your dreams of business ownership. We make this easy for you throughout the research and award process, but also know it is important to have ongoing training and continued education after the franchise has been awarded. Because of our relationships, we are able to provide you with a full package of consulting services and ongoing support and training.

At the Franchise Advisory Service (FAS) it is our mission to help you achieve your dream of a rewarding career in franchising. Our Executive Director and successful entrepreneur, Sherry Sapalio has been surrounded most of her life by family and associates that were also successful entrepreneurs.

“I have been exposed to and worked with so many people that have created their own successful business realities that helping others to do so has become second nature to me. Successful business development through franchising is a mind set that we wish to share with all of our clients at FAS.”

The team members of the Franchise Advisory Service have also been part of their own successful business ventures, and the team will help you achieve your dream of successful business ownership, as well.

The FAS team has the expertise in business and franchise consulting to work with our clients every step of the way towards franchise ownership. Team members include franchise attorneys, a certified public accountant, a partner in a franchise development company, a funding expert, franchise owners, national franchise trainers, expert marketers, social media experts and an IT expert. We take our clients’ dreams of franchise success and through our expert franchise consulting, guide them to the right franchise that meets their every goal and need.
