2023 was a record-breaking year here in the FastLane! From a new office to new brand partners to new FastLaners to an acquisition and so much more, 2023 has been the most successful year in business to date! It’s time to look in the rearview mirror and highlight some of the BIG moments from the past year.


Franchise FastLane Acquires Raintree Franchise Growth

Back in July, Franchise Times helped us break our mega-announcement of the year – revealing that Franchise FastLane has acquired Raintree Franchise Growth! The move only solidified our current rank as the No. 1 franchise sales organization (FSO) in the industry. This acquisition has now resulted in over 100+ employees for our combined workforce – all focused on our singular mission – inspiring life changing through franchise ownership!


Franchise FastLane Welcomes Seven New Brands

In 2023, we welcomed seven new brands to our growing portfolio of Next Big Thing Brands in Franchising. Each year, we review and evaluate between 150-200 different concepts, but only those with the MOST potential join us for life in the FastLane. In 2023, we welcomed M14Hoops, Tippi Toes, Bar-B-Clean, Gameday Men’s Health, The Tox, Canopy Lawn Care, and Anchored Tiny Homes.


Franchise FastLane Launches Powerful New Initiatives

We never stop looking for ways to assist both our brand partners – and other new and emerging brands – as each attempt to scale responsibly with the right franchise candidates. This effort has led to several new innovative initiatives, each designed to help franchisors reach the next level of success.


Franchisor MasterMind

MasterMind is a series of client-focused group meetings held via Zoom sessions on a monthly basis. David Gullotti hosts these sessions – a franchise consultant with extensive experience helping franchisors scale their businesses, and our Director of Training and Support, Cyndi Kammerer. For our brand partners, it’s an opportunity to network, learn from one another, and pursue additional professional development opportunities together.



Franchise FastLane launched a new franchise development service solution for the many, not just the few, called CarPool. Now regardless of a franchisor’s goals, both emerging and established concepts can plug into the No. 1 Franchise Sales Organization’s proven and trusted franchise development systems. Our goal is simple: to empower franchisors to master the art of franchise development and provide them with the tools they need to reach their goals. Our services encompass coaching, infrastructure, and administrative support to help franchisors on their journey.


Other Impactful Initiatives

We launched our Preferred Partnership Program, designed to help new and emerging brands locate resources for various tasks – everything from mundane to the complex. Our brands now have access to solid recommendations for services such as bookkeeping, payroll, HR and recruiting, insurance, marketing, background checks, technology/IT services, and even setting up a franchisee store. For brands that require a physical location, there are also preferred vendors and suppliers who handle site selection and commercial buildouts.


Consultant Network Conferences, Summits, and Expos

We made sure that each of our valuable consultant partners felt our presence in 2023, as representatives of our organization attended 12 different events. These were hosted by our longtime consultant network partners, including FranChoice, FCC, IFPG, FranNet, The You Network, FranServe, and Franchise Sidekick. Every event was another chance to learn from our consultant partners and share the ownership opportunities of each of our Next Big Thing Brands.


Milestones Achieved

As we keep saying, 2023 was a banner year for Franchise FastLane – and the metrics certainly prove it. This year we awarded over 1950 territories impacting over 750 lives. WOW. What a number! Adding this year’s statistics to our all-time success, we have now awarded, in total, over 6,800 territories, impacting nearly 2,700 lives through entrepreneurship in the process.
