    How many times have you, well maybe not Marty, been asked if you were part of a franchise due to the "look" and feel of your company?

    and how many times have you been told to start franchising your company because your wrap, logo, polo shirts or viral tile cleaning video looks better than the last five cleaners the Mr Business Coach paid attention to?

    I actually get asked that a lot. How would it even be possible to duplicate me?

    Many times... even had an offer from Angel investors/customers to help make that possible. I told them I had to decline their offer because I liked them too much. I told them the reasons why it would be a bad investment.

    Had that a few times. Thought about it. Decided that was not something I wanted to be involved in. Very competitive business.

    Since our reputation/branding in the community is that of being owner operator (s), it's never come up.

    Never.

    "Chavez" isn't exactly a franchise name unless we are talking Mexican restaurants. :winky:

    My name kinda screwed up the chance to be a franchise, but, people think I have a fleet of trucks and trailers, because I’m all over the place. They always ask me how many trucks I have
