The franchise investment advisor behind FranchiseProject, Rick Eggleton, is a classic example of American entrepreneurship, and typifies those who have achieved the American dream of success through business ownership. He launched his first business at the age of 24 and has remained self-employed as an entrepreneur and turnaround specialist since that time. Now, Rick utilizes his entrepreneurial experience every day in relating to individuals who are exploring business opportunities as an alternative career path or means of diversification.
After several successful business launches and turnarounds, in 1988 Rick became fascinated with the opportunities available in franchising. He bought the Southern California rights to a franchise with a mission and product he supported, but had difficulty finding qualified candidates to purchase the franchises until he met a franchise investment advisor from San Diego who sent him enough prospective franchise owners that he had established 10 franchise locations within six months. Always a quick study, Rick learned the franchise brokerage business from his successful mentor, and has since found hundreds of franchise opportunities for eager business owners.
