  • I used Pete Gilfillan's consulting services to purchase six franchise licenses. I found Pete incredibly organized, process oriented, and caring. Pete always "knew the numbers" and the softer issue surrounding purchasing a franchise. Pete pointed out things that I did not think of and helped me ask the right questions. Never once did I feel like he was selling me. He is authentic, experienced, and smart. I would refer him to family and best friends without hesitation; in fact, I already have ...several times.

  • I thought about going out and starting a consulting company or some kind of executive coaching but I did not know how to do it or how to price coaching engagements. I am really glad I did not do this on my own. I would strongly recommend a franchise consultant who can really look at your strengths and opportunities and help you narrow down the exact fit that matches your skill set. Why did I choose franchising? Specific situations and systems are already designed for you. Franchise consultants have the expertise and tools to help you match your skills and opportunities to the business that fits best.

    Pete Gillfilan is one of the top 5% caliber people I know. We have had the opportunity to work professionally together; he is just as good as they come.

  • Pete Gilfillan has been a true blessing throughout my franchise hunt. He worked with me to help select the franchise system best suited for the lifestyle I was desiring. During this process, Pete was very patience and understanding of my desires as well as my resistance. He was never pushy and allowed me to take it at my pace. Pete provided guidance and consultation, helped me understand what questions to ask of the franchisors and provided the necessary contacts as needed. I am now on my way to owning and operating my own Meineke Car Care Center in Texas.

    I not only consider Pete a mentor and colleague, I now consider him a friend.

  • Transitioning from corporate life to a life of independence could not have been simpler. By you reducing the number of options to those that I could afford and met with my business and personal goals, it allowed me to strip away the emotion and focus on what made sense for me. Pete Gilfillan truly provides a great value-added service. Thanks for your support in the process.
