Franchise recruiting and placement has been a part of Doug Kushell’s life his whole life. His father founded the industry and also created the iconic names ZEEs and ZORs, that are still widely used today.
After growing up going to IFA conferences with his father and uncle, it was no surprise when, in 1984, Doug founded Franchise Search to follow in his family’s footsteps – and the rest is history – a very successful history rooted in unparalleled knowledge, expertise, and wisdom. That’s why national and global clients rely on Franchise Search.
