"How to Pick a Franchise Consultant" is the subject of this podcast. Kit Vinson talks to Jerry Darnell, CEO of Jerry Darnell and Associates, and he asks the questions that every start-up franchisor has, "Do I need a franchise consultant, and if so, how do I pick one?"
We also spend a little time learning all about the man behind the company. Jerry Darnell is a pretty interesting guy and it was a pleasure getting to know him better.
