Pro Athletes


Professional athletes and franchising have enjoyed a long and successful history. Many athletes have successfully transitioned from sports to business ownership after leaving the field by joining a different team – a franchise.

Franchise Group caters to professional athletes by providing elite VIP services to assist them in their transition from sports to business ownership. We understand the unique needs of professional athletes and how franchising can be used to channel their same focused dedication and determination into successful, lifelong careers in business.

At Franchise Group, we recognize that professional athletes are in a unique position with regards to producing income and building wealth – both during their athletic career as well as their post-sports career.

Unlike most, professional athletes typically enjoy very high income, but only for a short amount of time. For example, it is estimated that 60 percent of NBA players are bankrupt within five years after retiring, and 78 percent of NFL players are in financial trouble after only two years of leaving the sport.*

The specific reasons may vary, but one of the common problems is that athletes spend a lifetime honing a very particular skill-set in a specific sport, yet those skills do not always translate into a high paying corporate position when their athletic career ends, especially if prematurely due to age or injury. Unfortunately, many still need income to maintain their lifestyle, and/or create a wealth preservation strategy to avoid living off savings and diminishing their assets too early.

Franchising provides professional athletes with a very attractive alternative career option. Through years in sports, athletes have developed many of the skills and discipline to become successful franchise owners. For example: *Sports Illustrated Magazine


Franchise Group has worked with hundreds of aspiring/existing entrepreneurs in helping them find the right franchise opportunities to best fit their goals and abilities with investments ranging from $100,000 to $1,000,000+.

Franchise Group prides itself in working with franchisors that are leaders in their segments, financially solid, with a strong leadership team with excellent validation and reputation among its’ franchise owners. We have a vast knowledge of the franchise market and use a proprietary profiling and consultative process to help you find a business model that is well suited to your objectives and goals.


We recognize that finding and opening your own business can be an intimidating process, especially when starting over after leaving a career dedicated to a very specific set of skills. Franchise Group is committed to helping current and former professional athletes gather the information, knowledge and resources necessary to make the transition from athlete to successful business owner.

We take the time to get to know you, understand your Income, Lifestyle, Wealth and Equity goals, and guide you through a step-by-step learning process to understand what it takes to be successful in franchising so that you will be well educated and prepared to execute the franchisor’s “game plan??? to achieve your goals.
