I look forward to Marc's ownership of and contribution to accelerated growth on all fronts for FranchiseBuyer," stated Matt Alden, General Manager of Franchise Solutions Corp. and FranchiseBuyer.

Kiekenapp commented, “This is an exciting opportunity to build a consultant network and match people to great opportunities. In 22 years of being in franchising, I will finally be able to bring people together with the right businesses. Being with just one company in the past, I couldn’t always accomplish this.”

“My passion is training and managing a sales force and with FranchiseBuyer I will be training and managing franchise consultants,” continued Kiekenapp.

His franchise background includes Decorating Den, where he served as the company’s Director of Development, and Sir Speedy.

“FranchiseBuyer is unique because we offer both franchisors and prospective franchisees an even playing field. All franchisors pay the same fees, so there’s no benefit to us in sending prospects to a specific opportunity. Instead, we match the correct opportunity with each individual. I am very excited to be involved with such a great concept,” said Kiekenapp.
