Amanda Berry spent more than a decade working in the U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs, working her way up from a service representative to assistant fiduciary hub manager. When Berry decided to switch career paths and become a business owner, she knew she needed support. That’s why she decided to look into franchising. 

“The reality of dealing with everything from payroll to marketing to serving your clients — how you actually do all the day-to-day was something I was not familiar with and honestly was very overwhelming,” she told 1851 Franchise.

Franchising provided Berry with a proven business model, support, and resources from a corporate team, so she didn’t have to build her business from scratch. Now, as a franchise consultant and owner with FranNet, the five-time Fortune 5000 franchise consulting brand, Berry is guiding other aspiring entrepreneurs down the same path, helping them to find franchise opportunities that align with their goals, values and skillsets. 

We spoke to Berry to learn more about her path to franchising and her experience with FranNet.
