In this episode, we are joined by my old friend Jeff Dudan for a conversation about the value and power of franchising your business. Jeff shares his journey from the football field to the franchising field while giving listeners some sage wisdom about leadership and growth along the way. Jeff is a franchise executive with 25 years of experience founding, building, operating, and ultimately exiting a national franchise brand. Jeff is a published author, Podcaster, Forbes contributor, speaker, and consultant to emerging brands.
Jeff’s journey as an entrepreneur began as a college athlete who founded a business to paint student housing. After graduation, he assisted South Florida in recovering from Hurricane Andrew which led to the launch of AdvantaClean in 1994. As a leading national restoration franchise, AdvantaClean became a strategic partner with St. Jude’s Children’s Hospital to support families in need. In January 2019, AdvantaClean was acquired by Home Franchise Concepts (HFC) to create a combined network with over 1,700 franchise territories operating in 11,000 cities in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico.
After selling AdvantaClean Jeff created Dudan Partners, the capital partner to HomeFront Brands and others, they invest capital, provide expertise, and offer services that enable people to join, buy, build, or expand franchise systems. Dudan Partners operates select franchise brands and offer an array of complimentary services that create franchise start-ups, outsource franchise sales, and implement growth strategies that drive explosive growth.
