'Franchising Is In My Blood'

We can debate all day whether entrepreneurs possess something like franchising DNA, but any time I hear someone say “Franchising is in my blood”, I sit up and take notice.

Tom Heath, who pens the Value Added column in the Washington Post, has wrote a very engaging story about two women’s journey in franchising.

"Franchising is not for everyone, but it is in my blood. We are passionate about our business and have a fabulous partnership. We help people realize their dream of business ownership. And we have fun. What's better than that?" says RoseMarie Hartnett.

Hartnett is the co-founder of Abrakadoodle, which provide “art classes, camps, parties and special events for children ages 20 months to 12 years old”. Hartnett and her partner in business, Mary Rogers, bring a love of art and an entrepreneurial spirit to their business venture and there are now 66 Abrakadoodle franchises and the franchise made more than $1million last year.

The two women provide a frank explanation of their experiences in franchising.

"I'm not rich, but I'm comfortable. I love what I do. When you look at the average small-business person, they make an average amount of income and they take a huge amount of risk,” Rogers said at the beginning of the story. It’s clear that their pure love of their business drives them forward.
