Associate Director of Franchise Development
Donna Grande (Goroski) started her career in franchising in 2008 as VP National Accounts with Jan-Pro Franchising International. Subsequently, she worked in the corporate arena where she focused on developing new markets and expanding existing markets nationally. Donna’s primary role has been in business development with her “hunter mentality”, but she jumps in where ever she is needed. She enjoys creating marketing strategies, developing branding ideas and training sales professionals to assist with organic growth within an organization.
Her passion is helping entrepreneurs exceed their goals and objectives by achieving great success by building strong and lasting relationships. She enjoys meeting new people and is known to end conversations with “Make It A Grande Day”. A former tap dancer, gymnast, and tennis player, Donna now enjoys playing golf, cardio exercise and yoga! Her other passion is spending time with her husband, Scott and their 3 Yorkies, otherwise known as “her girls”.
In her spare time, she volunteers at The SandBox, an organization who supports families with terminally-ill children and The Humane Society of Charlotte, NC with special event planning to raise funds for animal adoptions.
