Nick Neonakis / Author of The Franchise MBA

Telanda is one of my favorite brokers to work with; she responds quickly, is creative in her consultative approach and is positive and upbeat. We recently worked together to award a SPENGA territory to a client of hers in Santa Cruz and I can without a doubt say that everyone Telanda sends my way is a great match for my brand. The girl knows how to find her clients the right brand fit! I highly recommend working with Telanda if you have the opportunity to.

I highly recommend Telanda Sidari if you are considering a franchise. She really helped me to focus on my priorities, to make better decisions, and clarify the whole process. Telanda stayed committed through the course and was encouraging without being overbearing, even when I stepped away for an extended period of time. I always felt she had my best interests in mind. I have no doubt she will find the right business for you as she did for me.

Working with Telanda has been a great experience. From the fantastic event she organized in Columbus, OH to her thoughtful follow up emails, she is always engaged and focused on delivering the right candidates to the appropriate business opportunity. I look forward to working with Telanda in the future and adding more excellent franchisees to The Dog Stop family.

Jesse Coslov / CEO & Co-Founder The Dog Stop

“I guess the best way for me to describe how easily Telanda is able to connect with people from all walks of life is to share a personal story. The very first time I met Telanda was during a full day business meeting. We spent about 8 hours together. At the end of the meeting I didn’t want our time to be over so I offered to take her to the airport instead of a car service. On the ride, I said, I know this is weird cause we just met, but I really want you to come to my wedding next month, I feel like I’ve know you forever and even though I haven’t, I know that now I will!” I think that sums up the magic that is Telanda! She has a way about her that puts people at ease and I’m proof of that!

Lisa Kornstein-Kaufman / Founder Scout & Molly's Boutique

I had heard great things about Telanda from a number of colleagues in franchising but did not have the privilege to work with her until this year. In launching our new brand Telanda was quick to understand the type of candidate we were looking for. She understood our unique concept and what her clients were looking for. Within weeks of launching, we were hosting our first discovery day for Telanda’s clients and everything clicked. She sets the standard for what franchise consultant should be, understanding who her clients are and who franchisors looking for. It has been a pleasure to work with her and look forward to working together much more into future. 

Patrick Sommer / Franchise Development Mahana Poke

Telanda has been a pleasure to work with in my role as a franchise developer for a national fast casual healthy super-foods restaurant. Telanda recently recommended our brand to her client and she was able to quickly help them mark off many check list items to see if our concept was a good fir for their business goals. Through her prior experience as a franchisee and developer for a high fashion retailer, Telanda has gained a thorough understanding of what business success looks like for a franchisor franchisee relationship. Above all this – Telanda demonstrates high standards, is fun to work with and delivers on her promises.

Jeff Rendell / Sr. RVP Operations CertaPro Painters


Franchising can be an excellent opportunity to invest in a proven business model. Luckily, there are processes, systems & procedures in place to follow which can lead to a successful franchise business. If you’re able to follow the system you’re on the right track! If you think you might feel smothered or frustrated, owning a franchise business may not be for you.  

  • Someone who has the desire to own their own business by following the proven processes, systems, and procedures already built by the franchisor without the headache and hassle of creating the wheel.
  • Someone who has business experience in operations, management and finance.
  • People who are independent, self-starters, time management experts and can make important decisions for the business and its direction.
    How a client goes through our investigation process with a brand is a good overall indicator of how they will approach being a franchise owner. This provides valuable feedback to the franchisor on whether to make an offer.

An experienced consultant will guide you on the right path by identifying if franchising is right for you and which brands match your personal profile, goals, skill sets and investment range. Look for a consultant with knowledge of the franchise world, relationships within the industry and business acumen themselves either from prior or current franchise ownership. A consultant’s job is to help you think critically, disrupt preconceived & usually incorrect information and challenge you in order to make sure you’re making the best decision for your needs and goals.
