For investors looking to create generational, life-changing wealth, franchising may be the key. Educating potential business owners on that possibility is the basis of the new podcast series “Smart Franchising with Fransmart,” being launched today by Fransmart, the leading franchise development firm in the country.

The podcast’s first guest, industry legend Greg Flynn, Founder, Chairman and CEO of Flynn Group LP, the world’s largest operator of quick-service food franchises, exemplifies the potential of franchising, said podcast host Dan Rowe, Fransmart CEO and Founder.

“We are thrilled to debut this new podcast, that we hope will educate and inspire anyone who wants to learn if franchising is right for them,” Rowe said. “Fransmart matches budding entrepreneurs with emerging franchise concepts and gives them the tools, including educational video and our regular blogs, to build life-changing wealth. We’re excited to bring even more in-depth information to potential business owners and the community at large via this new podcast. Greg is the perfect first guest to do that.”

Flynn Group LP operates thousands of restaurants in the U.S., Canada and Australia, including Applebee’s, Arby’s, Taco Bell, Panera, Pizza Hut and Wendy’s. In late 2023, the company expanded into its first new category since its 1999 founding, acquiring Planet Fitness Gym locations.

The first season of “Smart Franchising with Fransmart” will consist of 10 episodes that will be released every Tuesday through June 4. Season 1 guests will include:

  • Don Fox, Former CEO of Firehouse Subs, discussing his 50 years in the restaurant industry.
  • Scott Redler, Co-Founder of the Kansas-based fast-casual restaurant concept Freddy’s Frozen Custard & Steakburgers and a 45-year industry veteran.
  • Bill Gellert, Managing Director of the Gellert Global Group, partner of Gellfam Management Corporation, and a member of the Franchise Advisory Councils for both Cinnabon and Five Guys.

Listeners can find links to the episodes at Fransmart’s home page, fransmart.com/podcast.

“We’re thrilled to have such an illustrious group of professionals in our inaugural season,” Rowe said. “Each has a unique story to tell that will be invaluable as our audience learns best practices to achieve their own success.”

Rowe himself is no stranger to franchise success. Fransmart identifies and grows emerging concepts into major franchise brands, with exceptional success in taking businesses from small unit companies to powerhouse chains. Current and past franchise brands advised by Fransmart include Five Guys Burgers & Fries, QDOBA Mexican Grill and The Halal Guys. These and other brands have opened more than 5,000 restaurants and retail locations worldwide and facilitated franchise investments that have cumulatively generated over $1 billion in revenues today.

The podcast is available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify, Google Podcasts or iHeart Radio, with a visual version also available on Fransmart’s YouTube channel.
