Hi, we’re Dave and Stacey Riska. We’re on top of the world (or at least the mountain) 😊 when we’re able to help aspiring business owners just like you find the PERFECT franchise.
  • Maybe you’re currently in a job that you just don’t love . . . 
  • Maybe you’ve thought about starting a business from scratch . . . 
  • Maybe you’ve considered buying an existing business . . . 
  • Maybe you’ve heard about franchising but felt overwhelmed with over 4,000 to consider . . . 

Wherever you are now, know that we’ve been in your shoes. We’ve both had jobs. We’ve started a business from scratch, we bought 2 more existing businesses along the way, then sold it all and invested in a franchise – which we still own today (16 years later).

What we can tell you with absolute certainty is that if you want to get to the next level and achieve your dream of business ownership, there is no better option than franchising. 

So many people reach to us for help because they’re feeling stuck.  They want to be their own boss. They want more freedom. They want more money. They want a better lifestyle. They want to build a legacy for their family. They want to get to the next level.

We help you find the PERFECT business that matches your skills, interests, resources and passion.

Best of all? Our services are at NO COST to you. We get paid by the franchise when we make a successful match. So let’s connect. It won’t cost you anything, and it just might change your life and get you to the next level! What's your next?

To your success,

Dave and Stacey Riska
