Top Franchise Brokers: Megan Allen, FranNet

Allen helps candidates find the right business to maximize the odds of their success and happiness and allows them to meet their lifestyle, career and financial goals.

Megan Allen, franchise consultant and FranNet franchisee, has spent her entire career in the franchise industry. Allen owned her own business with her father during college in the finance industry, helping franchisees grow by finding leasing equipment for property improvement plans.

After working as a supplier for the industry, she joined the doggy daycare franchise Camp Bow Wow’s leadership team, where she helped grow the brand and assisted in real estate, development and openings, as well as worked tirelessly to expand services and financial wealth for the franchisees in the system.

Now, as a franchisee herself with the FranNet team, Allen is passionate about matching the right owners with the right business model. Her various consulting roles have focused on coaching, change management, real estate, legal matters and franchise development.

“Winning for me as a broker is not about commissions or client signings. It is about making sure the client feels like they really took the time to find the right brand for their needs,” said Allen. “That is the most challenging part — but also the most rewarding. I love when a client says to me, ‘Wow, you really do understand me!’ My goal is to really listen and analyze their needs, go through the opportunities, call development groups and maybe sometimes even talk to the brand’s founder. Handling all that prep work and being consistent with the results I bring for clients is what winning is about for me.”
