Jerry Bird | Alabama & East Tennessee
My name is Jerry Bird and I am a Franchise Consultant with FranNet of Alabama & East Tennesee. I am here to help you find the right franchise business opportunity for you. If you are considering opening a business in Chattanooga, Knoxville, Tri-Cities or anywhere inbetween, I can help you to research and explore your options to find the best fit for you.
Most people when they hear the word “franchise” think of fast food and retail opportunities. And while it is true that there are many opportunities in those industries, there’s a whole lot more to franchising than just French fries! Franchising encompasses more than 80 different industries as a matter of fact!
There are many franchises opportunities for sale in Tennessee and I can help match you with the ones that match your personality, your management style, your financial goals and more.
You can come up with many pros and cons for purchasing a franchise brand for your business. I have spent many years in the franchise industry and I have personally experienced the advantages and disadvantages of franchising. I am always available to talk about your businesses franchise opportunity in Tennessee and begin your first steps in achieving financial success.
I attended the University of Georgia and upon graduating I began working for one of the largest retail companies in the United States. I worked my way up to Vice President of Store Operations and then pursued a job managing one of the largest International beverage supplier franchises.
With a background in corporate America, independent business ownership and franchise experience creates a perfect combination for being the perfect person to work with you on your journey to discover if franchise business ownership is the right fit for you.
