Area Representative Franchise



Top Ten Percent Franchise

John D. Rockefeller, business magnate and philanthropist, is considered to be the wealthiest American of all time.  According to Wikipedia, adjusted for inflation his net worth would have been $336 Billion!   Rockefeller was quoted as saying:

"I would rather earn 1% off a 100 people's efforts than 100% of my own efforts." -John D. Rockefeller

If you're ambitions stretch beyond owning a single-unit franchise, then our AR model may be the perfect fit for you.  Top Ten Percent is seeking select candidates to become Area Representative Franchisees. 

As an Area Representative Franchisee, you would secure exclusive rights to develop the Top Ten Percent brand, operating model and system in a three to six region territory.  You would oversee the development of our franchise within that regional territory and coach and mentor 12-24 franchisees that would be under you.  

Area Representative Franchisees would receive 50% of all single unit franchise fees which is currently $12,900 per franchise and 50% of all on-going monthly fees paid by the unit franchisees in your regional territory.*

Part-Time or Passive Basis is Acceptable

An Area Representative Franchise can be operated on a part-time basis, meaning you don't necessarily have to quit your current employment until you feel comfortable in doing so.

If your franchise goals include building an on-going monthly residual income for life, Top Ten Percent may be the franchise for you.
