Franchise Testimonial: Furniture Medic

Furniture Medic Franchise CompanyExcerpted from the article: Finding the Right Business for Today’s Economy.

Randy Buchter began doing his research by using several search engines to look for franchises available in his local area. That is when he discovered the Franchise Solutions website. “As a longtime and heavy user of the internet, Franchise Solutions was very easy to navigate. Everything went through very quickly,” he recalls.

Buchter highly recommends to others that are interested in finding a business to own. He commented, “Franchise Solutions was very good in showing me a wide variety of franchise possibilities. Just like everyone else, I hate spam, and do not care for companies that sell my email address. I have had no indication that Franchise Solutions has shared or sold my contact info. That’s great, and I would have no problem recommending Franchise Solutions.”

After doing his research, Randy decided upon Furniture Medic, a furniture repair and restoration franchise.

Buchter feels positively about his new business. He recently attended training and was ecstatic that, “While driving to Memphis for training, I had two requests for service calls! Since then, I have had several more requests, and all have been leads from the Furniture Medic website. As I get my yellow pages ads and more internet search hits, I am hopeful things will take off at a good pace.”

Buchter concluded by explaining that he would happily recommend Furniture Medic to other prospective franchise owners. “Furniture Medic has been very accommodating to me, knowing I was unemployed, and worked with me to get me up and running in a timely fashion without skipping any of the steps they believe are necessary for a good franchise.”
