The International Franchise Professionals Group (IFPG) and Sunbelt Business Brokers Form Strategic Partnership
Parlin, NJ— The International Franchise Professionals Group (IFPG) and Sunbelt Business Brokers entered into a strategic partnership to allow Sunbelt Brokers to become IFPG Broker Members. This partnership will allow Sunbelt Brokers the ability to present to their clients 300+ franchise offerings that have representation agreements with the IFPG. The partnership will drastically expand the options that Sunbelt Brokers have to share with their clients who are considering business ownership.
Both Franchise Brokers and Business Brokers earn the majority of their income by placing clients into a business. Business Brokers have traditionally been only limited to the ones that they are currently representing for sale, while Franchise Brokers have hundreds of franchises and business opportunities available to present to clients. "The IFPG is excited to be working with the industry leader in business brokerage.Partnering with a team like Sunbelt was an obvious choice for us, since many of the Sunbelt Business Brokers are already actively selling franchises. We are confident the IFPG can help Sunbelt Brokers sell more franchises by using our tools and resources.” said Don Daszkowski, IFPG Founding Member.

Interview with Isaiah Brown, 1-800-FLOWERS.COM franchisee
I had been working for 1-800-FLOWERS.COM for 16 years prior to becoming a franchisee. I started out literally getting my hands dirty – and pricked, and cut – as a flower cutter in a retail location in Brooklyn. It’s the store I own now, although we’re in a new location. I worked my way up to being a district manager in New York. In 2002, [Vice President of Retail and Franchising ] Ted Marlowe approached me about buying one of the company stores they were looking to franchise. Apparently [company founder] Jim McCann had taken note of my work and my commitment to the company, and had recommended me to Ted as someone who might be a good franchise candidate.
