CORNELIUS, N.C.Oct. 24, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — REP’M Group – an elite franchise growth enabler, offering a full spectrum of development services under one roof – has announced today that they have joined forces with Franworth, a franchise incubator and accelerator designed to leverage its best in class resources, engineered to steer strategy, and powered to accelerate growth. REP’M Group’s elite in-house service offerings are hyper-focused on selling and opening Franworth’s diverse portfolio of several established brands.

As the franchise industry continues to thrive and expand in the U.S., REP’M Group has cultivated a devoted team with vast experience to grow Franworth’s brands. According to the International Franchise Association, franchise businesses employed nearly 8.5 million people in 2022 with the economic output being close to $827 billion. Both REP’M Group and Franworth recognize that there is a need for this strategic alignment in an industry that has seen substantial year-over-year growth with a positive economic outlook.

The power of the two companies will be a game changer for the franchise industry.”

John Rotche (IFA Entrepreneur of the Year recipient) founded Franworth soon after creating IFA’s mentorship program, Franship. “After spending two years mentoring countless brands, what became most evident was these great founders have built really good businesses but they lacked capital, both financial as well as intellectual. Mentorship from experienced franchise leaders allowed me to grow two brands, both of which became the nation’s largest in their category. By leveraging these lessons learned, my team and I have since assembled the best team possible to help others accomplish their goals.” The company brings over 500 years of combined franchise experience within its leadership group; in addition to Rotche, Franworth partners include Drew BreesDavid Barr, (IFA Entrepreneur of the year recipient) Managing Director of Guideboat Capital, Mike Sutton and 4-time franchise CEO Dave Keil.

“We are confident that working alongside REP’M Group will allow Franworth to bring scale to our brands, creating more job opportunities and helping our franchisor partners and their franchisees succeed,” said John Rotche. “REP’M Group is the best of the best at what they do, plain and simple. Since meeting the team and getting to know them on an individual level, I have full confidence that their professionalism and can-do attitude will propel this partnership to the top of the franchising industry. We are so excited for this strategic partnership and cannot wait to see where this partnership will go.”
