Franchise, Business and Risk Management Consultants
Empowering the Entrepreneurial Dream

Paradigm Franchise Group is a Franchise, Business, and Risk Management consulting firm dedicated to empowering entrepreneurs by helping to Start, Grow, and Protect small, medium, and franchised businesses.


We are an affiliate with Business Alliance, Inc. and have been helping people realize their dreams through franchising for over 25 years.

Our franchised partner list includes over 270 national franchisors who are looking for serious, qualified candidates to join their franchise systems. Many of these franchisors are bombarded with internet inquiries - so they select franchise consultants like us to help them select the candidates who best fit their desired profile. We will help you find the franchise that matches your skills, goals, and financial needs. Our services are at no cost to you - directly or indirectly.


Franchising is the world's most successful growth strategy for small business expansion. But is franchising right for you?

Paradigm Franchise Group's robust due diligence is based upon an in-depth knowledge of the franchise industry and the core principles of sound risk management and business development. We will help you determine an optimal growth strategy based on the rewards and risks associated with franchising, licensing, distribution, or acquisition of complementary products/services via the franchise model.


Our Risk Management division is dedicated to helping organizations create a positive Risk Culture by providing the resources, education, and guidance to support, educate, and empower business owners, their employees, franchisors, and their franchisees to proactively manage their risks, increase their profits, and protect their brand reputation.

We use a multi-faceted approach to work across the silos and tie key business objectives into the functional treatment of risk across all areas of the organization.

You cannot change your destination overnight, but you can change your direction overnight - Jim Rohn

I remember when I graduated from college and had started my first teaching and coaching position in Northern Minnesota. I was approached by a friend, who described a network marketing opportunity that allowed two of our colleagues, a husband and wife team, to leave teaching - in style.

On the last day of school, they dressed in tuxedos and hired a limousine stocked with champagne, caviar, and lots of other goodies symbolic of a lavish lifestyle. To a small, but enthusiastic crowd, waved their final good byes, ducked into the limousine and departed for... well, I really don't know where.

But the point is that for some time long before the day they left in that limo, they had decided to change the direction they were going and to create a new destination that allowed them to live the life they had imagined.

Thomas Edison said, "Most people don't recognize opportunity when it comes, because it's usually dressed in overalls and looks a lot like work." The opportunity that they said yes to was the vehicle that allowed them to succeed as entrepreneurs. Perspiration, sacrifice, and hard work was the price they paid along the way to afford their dream.

I, like most people, simply walked away from the opportunity without any idea of what it really entailed. Slowly, as life revealed itself, it became clear to me that the only way I could realize my dream was to become an entrepreneur. If you don't build your dream, someone will hire you to help build theirs. - Tony Gaskins

Ninety percent of our population wants to be their own boss and control their own destiny. Yet, only 1% ever step out of their comfort zone and into the arena that affords them that opportunity. Fear and anxiety driven by lack of information and self- doubt are the biggest obstacles to business ownership. Knowledge is power. The only way one can remove fear and anxiety is to obtain the knowledge needed to make an educated decision.

Our Mission is simple - provide the tools, resources, and knowledge one needs to start a business, grow a business, and protect a business. Do so with honesty, integrity, and commitment to excellence. Our measurement of success is the number of people we help to become entrepreneurs, the economic growth our services provide, and the number of businesses we have helped protect through the risk management services we offer.
