"I first met Mark Cory of FranNet three years ago at a networking meeting. I was still employed in the corporate world, but was intrigued by Mark's presentation on alternatives to the corporate rat race. This was the beginning of a long and fruitful relationship in business and as friends. I found Mark to be highly professional and very knowledgeable. He took the time to work with my wife and me, and to help us uncover new opportunities in business ownership. It was through Mark's efforts that I have found my new calling and great opportunity as Michigan area developer for Expense Reduction Analysts. I thank him heartily and would recommend him to others who are looking to invest in themselves and build a new future in franchise business ownership!"
