Fall into Freedom with a Patrice & Associates Franchise!

It’s the most wonderful time of the year! I bet you thought I was talking about the holiday season, but you guessed wrong. It is time for back to school. By the end of the summer most parents are ready to get their children back into a routine and most children are ready to see their friends and thrive on structure. This is the perfect time to start focusing on yourself and a career in franchising.

Have you ever thought about what it would be like to be your own boss or set your own hours? To have the flexibility to drop your kids off at school or walk them to the bus stop in the morning. Owning a franchise is just the beginning to a freedom most people only dream of. The ability to set your own schedule and be present in your family, friends, and children’s lives is why most people search for a franchise opportunity.

Just like Leibniz’s Law states no two things exactly resemble each other, no two franchises are the same. When searching for the right franchise opportunity for you there are many things to consider. Here are a few general items to consider……

  • Do you want a brick & mortar franchise, which will contain real estate and higher overhead costs…or perhaps a more mobile franchise that doesn’t require a brick & mortar location, but might require a van, equipment, and a few employees. Or perhaps you want a virtual business with lower investment and low overhead.
  • What do you want your lifestyle to be like? Do you want a business where you will be the owner operator? Or perhaps a business where you will manage employees. Some franchises require full time owner operators where others allow the franchisee to manage employees.
  • Think about what’s important to you in a franchise model. Established Brand? Niche Business? Recession Resistant? Virtual? Few Employees Needed? No Employees Needed? Quick Ramp Up?
  • How should I fund the business? There are many reputable franchise lenders that can help you access capital via SBA loans, term loans, lines of credit, or even the opportunity to access retirement funds to launch your business.

You might feel excited and confident to tackle this search on your own, and you certainly can. There are great resources such as the International Franchise Association. Their site is www.franchise.org and they have a wealth of great information to get you started on your journey.

If you feel you might need a guide, there are wonderful franchise coaching organizations that can assess your background and skillsets and match you with businesses that could be a good fit.

It’s a fun, safe space, to see if this opportunity is the right venture for you! There is no better time to get started!


Duke Witte absolutely was amazing! 

I am writing to express my sincere gratitude to Duke Witte for his assistance in finding me a new job in the hospitality industry. I was disgruntled with my previous job, and I was feeling very discouraged about my prospects. I had been working in the restaurant industry for many years, and I had a lot of experience and skills, but I was having a hard time finding a better opportunity.

I was contacted via LinkedIn by Duke, and thank goodness I was.  Mr. Witte was incredibly helpful and supportive throughout the entire process. He took the time to understand my skills and experience, and worked tirelessly to find me a job that was a good fit.

Duke was also very honest and upfront with me about the job market. He didn't sugarcoat things, but also didn't give up on me. He kept me motivated and encouraged, and never gave up on finding me a job that I would love.

I am so grateful to Duke Witte and his team for their help. I am now happily employed, and I am so happy that I was able to find a job that I love. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is looking for a job in the restaurant industry. He is a true professional, and is dedicated to helping his clients find the perfect job!

Thank you again for everything!

Working with Chris Bovio made job searching so much easier! 

Not only was he available and involved in my search, but also knowledgeable regarding the position. Chris used his industry experience and recruiting network to find the best position for me and my skill set. My only regret is that my new job is so perfect for me that I won’t need to use Chris or Patrice & Associates later.

Bryan Curtis was fantastic to work with!

Bryan was very on top of things throughout my recruiting process to the engineering firm I accepted my position with.  I responded to his LinkedIn posting and heard back from him within 24 hours. He continually spoke with me throughout the process checking in regularly and answering all my questions. Bryan was instrumental in helping me find a great job.



Frank Rondeau was a really big help! 

When it came to helping me find my new job, he knocked it out of the park!  He was very honest and thorough throughout the entire process. We had multiple conversations along the way and he always checked in after interviews. Frank was amazing to work with, and I'm super excited to start my new journey thanks to him.       

Many Thanks,
