  • "As an individual who transitioned from being a long-term employee to an entrepreneur, Liz played a very critical role in guiding me through a large number of options based on my interests, past experiences and available resources. Her blend of professional experiences coupled with her success of owning several businesses also gives her a unique perspective that I found invaluable during the process. I have truly enjoyed having her as partner who was alway candid and most importantly an advocate on my behalf at all times."

  • "After looking for a franchise opportunity for a number of years; knowing I no longer had any desire to work in Corporate America any longer, I finally stumbled into a franchise that appealed to me – one which appeared to offer excellent opportunities to do something of meaning and value. Upon discovering that “ideal” opportunity I couldn’t help asking those initial questions: What do I do next? Can I afford it? How will I raise the money? How can I be sure this is for me? How can I get a hold of people actually doing it that will be willing talk openly about their experiences? Just as I swirled in the mist of these questions (and others) Liz reached out to me. Liz was beyond helpful in getting ALL my questions answered, but she got me in contact with the CEO of the franchise that I was (still am) able to call directly on his cell whenever questions would come to mind. She got me in contact with funding professionals that aided me in obtaining the necessary funds to purchase the franchise… and she even helped me get in touch with new franchisees fresh in business so they could share their thoughts and experiences. I would venture that it is safe to say that I wouldn’t be a franchise owner this very moment if it wasn’t for all of Liz’s assistance and direction. I think the first step in becoming a successful franchisee (for many) is getting that great Franchise Consultant – Liz is just that!!!"

  • "We looked at over 100 franchise business opportunities and when we found KTU and Liz, we quickly knew we found the right match. Liz took us through the whole process and my extensive due diligence, which at times I am sure was frustrating for Liz as we turned over every stone to make sure this was the right business for us. Liz was patient, knowledgeable and helped in every way possible as we when through this very important decision. Liz was able to share her personal experiences with starting many business after a long career outside of the world of business ownership and helped alleviate many of the personal fears and concerns that we had in making this leap into business ownership. It also certainly helped that her husband Paul recently launched his very own KTU business. Late night and weekend calls were the norm with Liz as it is very clear that helping people like us reach our personal goals and dreams is not just a job for Liz, it is clearly a passion for her in really helping families find a brighter future outside of the corporate track. I am certain if it was not for Liz and her tireless efforts, I would have likely not make this move.


    Thank you for everything Liz!"

  • "Working with Liz was an absolute pleasure; she truly took on the role of a coach and mentor instead of using typical sales tactics. Not only was this refreshing, but I feel she helped me make the best possible choice for my franchise investment. "

  • «It all started when I did a Google search on "Top Franchises" and soon learned that the universe was far too broad and extensive for a novice to navigate. I tried to narrow my search down to some manageable number, indicating potential interest in multiple franchises, but the task was daunting. With literally hundreds of franchise business opportunities I felt like I was looking for the proverbial needle in a haystack. Then, I got the call from Liz Leonard that changed everything. Liz introduced herself by referencing my requests for information and explained that her role was to act as a consultant who would help guide me through the maze. She explained that her services would be at no cost or obligation to me as she would be paid by the franchisor if and when I decided to move forward with a purchase.


    That initial conversation was the beginning of a great experience. Liz explained her process, asked lots of good questions about my prior business experience, my goals and objectives, what type of business model I was interested in (home based, number of employees), how much I was able and willing to invest in the right opportunity, etc. From there Liz said she would put together a short list of available franchises, consistent with my objectives, for my consideration. That's when I began to really appreciate the value of the services that Liz provides.Over the course of the next few weeks Liz and I vetted a number of potential opportunities. Liz then arranged for me to speak directly with the key people at multiple franchisors so I could get a better understanding of their businesses, and they could have the opportunity to assess me as a potential franchisee. But Liz didn't just hand me off and wish me well....she stayed fully engaged throughout the process by following up with me and the franchisors every step along the way. I couldn't be happier with the support and mentoring that Liz provided in moving my search to a successful conclusion. Liz is a true professional, in every sense of the word, and her people skills are as good as it gets. Despite the fact that Liz and I have only interacted on the phone, through email, and text messages, I feel like we became fast friends. I am sure that we will continue to collaborate with each other for years to come."

  • "One Awesome Franchise Broker! A Class Act!


    Liz is amazing! When I first started the journey to select a franchise, the franchise landscape seemed to be a murky quagmire. The majority of the franchise brokers that I spoke with presented themselves as just coming off of a bender, being extremely immature and unprofessional, and in it to make a quick buck, but not Liz. She immediately exuded maturity, knowledge, preparedness, and honest professionalism -- time proved this initial impression to be dead-on accurate! In the beginning of my now one year experience with Liz, she truly listened to what I was attempting to accomplish, provided several viable options, helped to weigh the pros and cons, and illuminated the route forward. While investigating a company whose business model I loved, due diligence enabled me to understand that the company’s business execution was sloppy, to say the least. Undeterred, Liz was more than willing to help me regroup and analyze/find a new set of investment options, which proved to fit my needs much better. Now, am a happy investor/franchisee in a franchisor that is a lean and well-oiled machine! Despite nearly three decades in the professional world, could never have completed this journey into entrepreneurism as well on my own. Liz was my secret weapon…she’s truly a class act!"

  • I contacted Liz Leonard in September 2016. I wasn’t going to do or buy anything, I was ‘just looking,’ and doing research. In fact, I even stopped communicating with Liz for about 2 months. Liz has never pressured me to make any decision. When I was ready to do serious looking, I contacted Liz and we picked up right where we left off. She put me in contact with some financial folks that have helped other prospecting entrepreneurs. Again, no pressure from the financial folks either, and they answered my many questions. Liz has been, and continues to be, a wealth of knowledge, which she generously shares with me. Liz is a professional, personable, patient, and straight up. She offered many options to choose from, as well as pointing me to other sources. The assessments Liz used to learn more about me and my business personality, were spot on, sometimes eerily so. I have already shared Liz’s contact information with a friend, as she expressed an interest. I feel blessed to have Liz in my corner. I highly recommend Liz to anyone even slightly, barely considering purchasing a franchise or license (as I did). She’s the best!
