What Our Brand Partners ARE SAYING
We must be doing something right.
Co-founder & President, Ivybrook Academy
BrandONE is as good as it gets in the Franchise Development world. From the outset, the BrandONE Team invested heavily in understanding our business, our culture, where we are at, and where we want to end up. They developed a comprehensive sales process including process, design, content and technology to help us achieve our goals. They extracted the features that make us unique in our competitive industry and helped us to build value around those differences. However, what has impressed us the most are the people on the BrandONE team. They are dedicated results oriented professionals that have deep connections in the franchising world. Their broker and banking relationships have fueled the biggest annual growth we’ve seen in our 15 years of franchising! If you want to launch or relaunch your brand, look no further. BrandONE is the real deal.
A few years ago, my wife Evonne and I visited IFA in Las Vegas. We went there with one purpose in mind and that was to connect with a development partner. We had multiple nightmare experiences with Franchise “salesman” in the past. That was the last thing we wanted to do again. When we sat down with BrandONE at the conference we immediately knew they were different. In a one-hour meeting not one time did they try to “sell” us on their company. We have had an amazing time with these guys for the last few years. We are growing at a rapid pace with qualified candidates. The number thing Evonne and I love the most is their integrity. It’s not always about a sale with BrandONE. We consider them family and highly recommend any emerging brand listen to what they have to say and consider a partnership with them.
I may not be new to my industry, but I was certainly new to the franchise world. And that learning curve would have been much more painful had it not been for the expert guidance of BrandONE. Having only one franchisee under my belt at the time of the partnership I really wasn’t sure of what next steps were, BrandONE stepped in and developed a full-blown franchise development process, assisted me with website design and connected me with leading industry experts. They even got me into broker networks that I would have NEVER had the ability to get into before! I can’t wait to watch my brand take off, and there is no one I would rather do it with.
As a business new to the franchise world we were thrilled that BrandONE even considered taking us on. We quickly realized that they were not only an experienced and top-notch development team, but also invested in us as people. They took the time to learn our business inside and out, then created a sales process that was true to our brand. They are everything they are cracked up to be — seasoned, skilled, and knowledgeable. We know they have our best interests top-of-mind and are confident knowing they represent us in the market. We think of them as both team members and friends.
The BrandONE team is as good as it gets in franchise development. After fiddling around with different recruitment solutions for years, we finally had the opportunity to work with this all-star team. We grew 400% in less than one year after that, selling out almost the entire country. It has been an unbelievable experience. They operate with diligence, integrity, they are extremely experienced, and results oriented. They are great people, and just so good at what they do, it’s a pleasure to watch and work with them. They are not just some outsourced vendor. I have truly considered them an extension of our team. Often, candidates in our recruitment process can’t even differentiate between Junkluggers and BrandONE because the B1 folks really take the time to build relationships within our network and to understand our business. Congratulations if you are lucky enough to have the opportunity to work with BrandONE.
What sets BrandONE apart from other franchise development companies is their ability to completely immerse themselves in my brand. They took the time to learn every detail about Ivybrook Academy and what is important to us, ensuring complete alignment. BrandONE is much more than a sales and development company. They have given me valuable feedback and help in every avenue of my business, not just sales, and I view them as a sounding board and/or Board of Directors. I have had the great fortune to connect with them on a professional basis as well as have formed life-long friendships that can never be replaced.
K9 Resorts was looking for a way to accelerate franchise development and we decided to run a process to find the best in class outsourced franchise development company. After interviewing many companies, there was one company who really stood out – BrandONE. BrandONE was able to understand our business, the high investment level that comes along with opening a high-end dog resort and figured out how to pitch our amazing business to the masses. We needed a firm that was nimble, open to new ideas & could pivot quickly as they reviewed the marketing data in real time. A firm that was not set in their ways and that was open to using many different media channels to find a strategy that worked well for K9 Resorts.
We have worked together with BrandONE for more than three years and they have brought a high caliber prospective franchise owner to the table repeatedly. K9 Resorts is very happy with BrandONE and we look forward to growing together for many more years.
We (LaundroLab), chose to work with BrandONE to take our company to the next level, and we chose them for many reasons. The first is that every conversation we had with someone from the BrandONE team, we knew they were authentic and honest, and clearly the type of people we wanted to work together with long term. On top of them just being good people, they are more than development experts. These partners have seen it across a variety of industries, and they’ve had success every time. We wanted to work with the best of the best and these guys are that and more. In our early relationship, we’ve already gotten value outside of growth including legal, organizational, and strategic guidance. Lastly, one of my favorite parts was that the relationship is curated towards the needs of the franchisor and that was hard to find in doing due diligence with franchise development partners. We couldn’t be more excited to be working with the BrandONE team to take LaundroLab to the next level!
I enjoy working with BrandONE because of the time and attention they provide to my candidates. They are professional, courteous, and highly knowledgeable about the brands they represent. One of the biggest reasons I entrust BrandONE is the genuine desire to find the right fit for everyone involved. These are life-changing decisions. BrandONE guides the candidate through an educated buying process instead of trying to sell them something, which is fundamentally different.
You know you are working with professionals and great brands, which is why I enjoy working with the team at BrandONE. I have great confidence that when I introduce my clients to BrandONE they are going to be treated professionally, with integrity, and with the client’s best interests front and center. The team is very knowledgeable about the industry, their brands, and is easy to communicate with. They take their role seriously and like to have fun doing what they do!!!

I enjoy working with BrandONE because as a referring consultant you have to feel confident that the entire contact and discovery process for your client is handled with a professional sense of urgency to educate and motivate towards their goal of business ownership.

They are experts at providing the “road map” for my client’s franchise exploration.
I love working with BrandONE because they are best-in-class. They are thorough, honest and hardworking for their clients and their brands. Our clients are looking to partner with the top notch brands they represent.
I really enjoy working with BrandONE because Angie Shaw makes the process seamless with our candidates. When we present any franchise to any client, we need to most knowledgeable, prompt and friendly representatives to work with and BrandONE is one of the best companies to work with.
Working with BrandONE is a pleasure for two main reasons: the quality of their brands and the quality of their brand representatives. BrandONE focuses on solid brands, with great growth potential, in a variety of industries. That’s important to me and to my clients. In addition, their brand reps are industry professionals who provide fantastic communication with both my clients and me–also very important. Quality brands and quality brand reps–an absolutely winning combination!
After working with FranNet for 26 years as a franchisor and a consultant, it is important to focus attention on the best concepts and the best franchise development specialists. In my opinion, BrandOne heads the list in both categories. Their brands offer extraordinary opportunities for client investors and the professionalism of the BrandOne team members is exceptional. The company is a dream to work with, all the way through signing franchise agreements.
I love working with the entire team at BrandOne! They always represent strong brands and they handle my clients with great care. Their leadership team is top notch and always keep me informed about the status of my clients. I look forward to continued opportunities to partner with them!

I enjoy working with BrandONE and their brands because they are easy to work with. Their frick and frack is the best. They know how to close deals!
I enjoy working with BrandOne because they are able to vet quality franchise organizations and bring a streamlined system that my clients can easily follow. These young brands that used to not have a development infrastructure were stuck with a great business but lack of process for clients to investigate them properly. I have numerous successful, happy clients that have moved forward with BrandOne brands and will confine to keep them top of mind moving forward.
I appreciate working with the BrandONE team due to their client centered focus and overarching professionalism. I never have to worry about whether my clients are getting the attention they deserve, the information they need, in a timely manner. Thanks BrandONE
I enjoy working with BrandONE and their brands because of the professionalism and passion that Michael Mudd and Jason Barclay bring to the table. Not only are the brands they represent fresh and great business models but the experience that Michael and Jason bring as they represent their brands is top notch.
I have always enjoyed working with BrandONE for many, many reasons, but if I had to highlight a few they would be:
1) I can be rest assured that the franchise brands BrandOne represents are top notch, quality franchise systems.
2) The BrandOne team thoroughly educates my clients on the process they will take them through and the brand they represent.
3) The follow-up I get from the BrandOne team is best in the industry. I always know where my clients stand in their process with detailed notes in a timely manner.
Whenever I have a client that I know will be treated with the utmost professionalism and very topnotch handling I recommend Michael Mudd and the pro’s from BrandONE. They are the best at providing the necessary information that my clients need to make an informed decision. They schedule a series of calls so that the client can assess in a very organized and intelligent manner and provide the opportunity to ask the relevant questions to help determine if this is the right fit for them. They never pressure and actually become friends to my clients. They are the standard that all franchises should conduct themselves. I have great confidence that my clients whether they purchase or not, will leave having a good experience and hopefully create a new entrepreneurial chapter in their lives.
I always enjoy working with the development specialists at BrandONE. They are knowledgeable, great at educating my clients on the facts of the brands and are a joy to work with! The concepts they represent are well vetted and poised for success.
I enjoy working with BrandONE and their brands primarily because of the three P’s. The BrandONE team without a doubt is very Professional. All my clients are always impressed with how buttoned-up they are. They are incredibly Process-oriented. Clients move through a methodical and well-orchestrated process in which necessary information is shared to ensure the best fit for both parties. And lastly, they are Patient. The BrandONE Team works hard to move the client through the investigation process at a comfortable pace without applying high level pressure tactics.
I enjoy working with BrandONE and their brands because I have the peace of mind knowing I am working with true professionals. Every member of the team excels in follow up, rapport with my clients and operates with high integrity looking out for a true match for the franchisor and franchisee. The BrandONE team is selective in the brands they bring forth; I can count on there being real steak behind the sizzle.
I enjoy working with BrandONE because Michael Mudd and Jason Barclay are skilled professionals. They can adapt to varying buyer styles, yet always seem to be able to move prospects through the discovery process in a reasonable (and sometimes speedy) time frame. Equally important, they keep consultants well-informed and take the time to converse with us to strategize on how to best get the prospect to the finish line.
I’ve been doing franchise consulting with FranNet since the late ‘90s and have helped 1000’s of individuals start their own franchise. In all my years doing this, I’ve never met a more professional and dedicated group than BrandONE. Personally, Michael Mudd and I have helped many people in the Southern California region. All my clients express to me how much they enjoy working with him and the BrandONE team. They really know how to help clients all through the process, and as a consultant I appreciate being updated each step of the way. What a great team to work with!
The team at BrandONE is one of the best franchise development companies I and my company have ever worked with. In my over 25 years in franchising, they truly stand out as a top tier organization.

Many of the best experiences for my clients have involved working with BrandONE. The team is accomplished, experienced and extremely knowledgeable about franchising in general and their brands in particular. Anytime they introduce another franchise I put it on the top of my list and work hard to find clients who match up with it. I would refer any client to BrandONE at any time, knowing they will be well taken care of.
One of the main reasons I like having my clients work with BrandONE is that I know they will be treated professionally and with a sense of urgency.

BrandONE is such a high-level group to work with for a few major reasons. They know the franchise industry inside and out. They all know how candidates think and the processes they are going through. They provide tremendous support to me, in helping my candidates think through their decision. Their team does this with no pressure, responsive communication, and professionalism. BrandONE’s team is made up of long-term pros in the industry. They know what they are doing. They also do an outstanding job of picking brands that are unique, fun to work with and provide solid opportunities for franchisees success. It all adds up to a winning combination.

The team at BrandONE…they are the Navy Seals of the franchise industry. They represent the finest franchise brands. They conduct themselves in a professional manner such that any franchisor would be proud to have them on their team. The “gold standard” …BrandONE!
As a franchise business owner, a former franchise development director and a multi-independent business owner, I’ve come across so many people in the franchise development world. They’re not all created equal. Kurt and the team he and his partners have assembled at BrandOne are the best of the best. Their real, down to earth people who don’t focus on hype. They get to the brass tax of what makes their brands a worthwhile investment, and I know they provide their clients a level of support that is very difficult for any other group in this industry to rival. It is a distinct privilege to work with their team and I know every client is given the white glove treatment.
