Mahana Fresh

"Franchise Opportunities Network has continued to be our top-performing lead generation site. The quality of leads and conversion rates have exceeded every other lead portal that we have tried. We have found single-unit, multi-unit and area representatives through Franchise Opportunities Network. This week we closed a 3 license development agreement in Atlanta GA with one of their leads and have four Franchise Opportunities leads coming to our next discovery day! We look forward to growing our brand across the country with their help and support."

- Patrick Sommer | Director of Franchise Development | Mahana Fresh

Prime Wave Medical Group - Men's Health Clinic

"Being brand new to a nationwide online campaign I really had no idea what to expect. Travis took his time to explain in detail how this program worked and how to maximize our results. After just 2 months we are connecting directly with over 50% of our leads and we already have 2 sales in the books. We have 13 site visits scheduled over the next 4 weeks and expect to have several more sales after our leads visit our facilities. We couldn’t be happier and are expecting our results to get better and better as we get better at managing the leads that Franchise Opportunities Network has been providing us."

- Matt Goodwin | Prime Wave Medical Group - Men's Health Clinic

Home Technology Handyman

"After trying several other lead generation platforms with less than desirable results, our Executive Team was about to give up on lead portal platforms altogether. We decided to make one last push in the channel and turned to Lee Payne of for help. After carefully analyzing the data from our first 5 weeks of advertising we were shocked by the results. The incoming lead flow provided by had a significant level of candidate engagement including; email opens, link clicks, text replies and Discovery Calls booked. We anticipate two new owner conversions from the initial influx of leads. Thank you, Lee!"

- Marc Bailey | Chief Franchising Officer | Home Technology Handyman

Fantastic Sams

"Of all the franchise portals Fantastic Sams has used and continues to use for qualified lead generation, Franchise Opportunities Network consistently outperforms the others. The leads provided have shown to have the best overall conversion rate for new franchisees. Two of our new franchisees closed recently from FranOppNetwork were Scott & Tami Quick and Matt & Stacy Thibodeaux (both signed 3 pack multi-unit development agreements!). Their entire team provides the personal attention needed so our campaign is always operating at full capacity!"

- Erica L. Tarnowski | Business Development Manager | Fantastic Sams


"I can't believe we waited so long to make the commitment with Travis and Franchise Opportunities Network. Having a limited advertising budget we were cautious as where to spend it. We thought we had a quality lead source in place prior to adding FranOppNetwork but shortly after signing up with Travis, our 3rd lead was an enthusiastic buyer of our dealership program, SHUTTER-TIME! Had we waited 2 days longer, we would have missed out on this candidate. We've now reallocated additional funds to get more leads from FranOppNetwork based on a much higher quality candidate than our other portal."

- Scott & Tess Morgan | Founders | SHUTTER-TIME!


"Like many, I was hesitant about trying another portal not having success with previous ones. Initially on a trial period for a limited amount of leads in March, I noticed a big difference from Franchise Opportunities Network leads vs the others I've tried. The following month, I received a lead on April 22nd. As of the 1st of June, that lead is now a new InstaPartner!!! It's very rewarding to see such a quick return on investment. I look forward to continuing our partnership with FranOppNetwork for many years to come."

- Ryan OKeefe | Founder & CEO | InstaHealthy

Always Faithful Dog Training

"I wanted to take a moment and let people know my experience so far with the Franchise Opportunities Network. My new franchise Always Faithful Dog Training started advertising with them on January 8th 2017. After only 10 days of advertising we received a lead on January 18th that ended up turning into our very first franchise! From the very beginning Lee Payne and his team have been incredibly easy and knowledgeable to work with. Lee took time to explain to me how I should work each lead and what I should expect during the process. His advice and encouragement was instrumental in getting our first franchise established and turning many of our other leads into stronger leads. I also want to mention how fair him and his team has been when we receive a bad lead. I have been very pleased with the Franchise Opportunities Network so far and highly recommend them to anyone who owns a Franchise and is looking for a highly reputable lead company. "

- Abraham | Owner | Always Faithful Dog Training

Lee Payne and his team have a fabulous 'can do' attitude to account management and customer service and I feel really supported. Lee's willingness to support Club Pilates wherever he can to generate good quality leads is really appreciated and I look forward to working together in 2017."

N-Compass TV

"My company has grown and tripled in size in the last 18 months because of Franchise Opportunities and Travis Cook. Clearly Franchise Opportunities is the best site out there for your growing business, but without the expert guidance and all the help that Travis Cook has given me, we would not be where we are today ...I too have had a limited budget to market my business, I was only able to choose one site to help me out. I have been a client of Franchise Opportunities now for about 2 years. With the service and results that I received from Travis Cook at Franchise Opportunities, I have not needed to go nor will I go anywhere else."

- Phil Salice | N-Compass TV

I have just renewed for 2013 and am excited to continue working with a quality company like"

The Employers Edge

"Dear Franchise Opportunities Network:
I want to share with you the addition of a great new Strategic Partner with The Employers Edge. Christina requested information about our business opportunity on 9/25/11. She wasn’t in a hurry to do anything as she had a contractual engagement for the next 2 years. As we talked, she fully realized that our opportunity was what she was looking for next. She attended a 3-day Fast Start training in early December and got so excited by what she heard and saw that she verbally committed to coming into the business. She had to make some arrangements to get out of her contract, but on 1/18/12, she became a Strategic Partner. So, in just under 4 months, and with some real obstacle to overcome, we helped her realize her dream of business ownership. As a side note, after less than a week in the business, she has already set appointments and has a proposal for training. Thanks for your part in making this happen!

- Ed | The Employers Edge

Not only is their product superior, but their staff is always available to their clients with their years of expertise in lead generation, web copy and customer service in general. I would most certainly recommend FranchiseOpportunities to any concept looking to increase their lead flow, expand their brand and enjoy working with a seasoned, tenured company."

Since we started advertising with them in early 2007, they have been instrumental in helping Jan-Pro Franchising International in being named as the # 1 Fastest Growing Franchise in US for 2008 & 2009 by Entrepreneur magazine. In addition to producing quality leads, their customer service and sales support is second to none.
