"We initially didn’t understand the process and rewards of working with a franchise broker. But as the old adage goes, 'you don’t know what you don’t know.' Sue Bennett quickly became acquainted with our needs and gave us a different point of view. With her help, we were able to more quickly recognize opportunities that fit our needs. With her help, we are now off and running to what we look forward to being the best career decision of our lives and we will forever be grateful for Sue’s help."
