As we look ahead into summer, it’s a great time to reflect on where we’ve been and what we’ve done! Here in the FastLane, we constantly have updates to provide to our franchisors and franchisees, updates that are too good to keep to ourselves. So, we decided to ‘pump the breaks’ and look back on what we’ve accomplished each month. 

Our last blog of each month will be known as the “Franchise FastLane Rear View Mirror” and will provide updates on the industry, Franchise FastLane, our initiatives and MORE! Buckle up as we take a drive down memory lane for the month of May.


M14Hoops Shoots – And Scores! 

One of the newest brands in the FastLane, M14Hoops, held its first confirmation day and awarded 2 franchisees for a total of 10 territories in Detroit, MI & Louisville, KY – a SLAM DUNK for this emerging youth enrichment franchise brand. Keep in mind, we just partnered with them 3 short months ago! To learn more about the 1st ever-national basketball development franchise opportunity that is SCORING BIG, visit our M14Hoops brand page. 



FastLane’s May Celebration Event 

Our 2023 May Celebration brought the Franchise FastLane and Southfield Capital teams together in our new office in Omaha, NE. We had a packed schedule for our few days together but it wasn’t all work! We know how to play hard too! After a day full of meetings we celebrated with a casino night where our teams got to see who had the best luck and could win big! Any guesses who the lucky winners were? Following a night of fun, we had team meetings where milestones and achievements of our incredible leaders were recognized and ended the our time together with donuts and lemonade courtesy of one of our brand partners, DonutNV! The people at FastLane make the time spent together sweet and memorable. Check out our recap video here!

Inspiring Life Change 

As one of our core values, Inspire Life Change has multiple meanings externally and internally for the FastLane team. In the month of May, Franchise FastLane has had the privilege to onboard three new brands and franchise teams. Welcome again to Bar-B-Clean, Gameday Men’s Health, and one brand coming soon! We also awarded 106 territories across 17 brands! Check out what some of the new franchisees had to say:


“I am excited about being a first-time business owner and having the experience and support of such a seasoned leadership team. The discovery process provided so much information and transparency to get me comfortable to make this investment.” – Candidate Quote.

“I make decisions based on data, but the people I partnered with through the entire process made me feel good about the decision. Everyone involved in taking me through this process exceeded my expectations in not only their technical roles but as people. I felt like I had partnerships on this journey, not just guidance from someone doing their job. It’s very clear that Franchising is a lifestyle for this team and not just a paycheck to get to the next one.” - Candidate Quote.

“I have always wanted to open my own business, but never knew exactly what my niche could be. I feel excited that my next adventure will provide me with the skills necessary to be successful, but more importantly to me, access to help in areas where I might not be as strong.” - Candidate Quote.
