America's #1 Franchise Directory, Trusted for Over 15 Years

From The Office To The Golden Arches

Anyone can succeed with franchising. We love reading about financial advisors who, after spending day in and day out seeing clients succeed with franchising, decide to give up the day job to enjoy the success on their own.

The new issue of Franchise Times magazine features on its cover the story of Jack Earle, a successful banker, consultant, franchise trainer who gave it all up to own a McDonald’s franchise.

Earle continued in banking, but once he heard the McDonald’s franchisees’ stories, “It was always in the back of my mind as I moved into the next role at the bank,” he says.

Earle is a Boston guy who worked with Chrysler for years before entering banking. He needed a new challenge and turned to franchising. Despite his success in business, Earle had to start at the ground floor when he entered McDonald’s.

“It’s long hours, all on your own time. And, yes. There is a bit of culture shock for banking vice presidents. “The first day I had to clean the grease trap,” Earle told the magazine.

He wasn’t deterred though and now owns seven McDonald’s franchises. For any readers who yearn for a new business challenge, Jack new start is evidence that there is a future for you in franchising.
