Franchising is attracting entrepreneurs and BAI plays a vital role in matching entrepreneurs with the best franchise concept
The pandemic led to a shift in the American workforce and many people rethinking their chosen career paths and taking the leap toward business ownership. A recent study released from the Peterson Institute for International Economics found that Americans started 4.4 million businesses in 2020, a 24 percent increase over 2019 and the biggest increase on record.
Known for time-proven systems and a network of supportive fellow franchisees and home office support, franchising is becoming increasingly attractive for those who want to go into business and have the backing of a proven business model. As franchising flourishes, Business Alliance, Inc. (BAI), is busier than ever. BAI is one of the largest and oldest brokerage firms in the industry, with nearly 30 years in business and connections with hundreds of franchise concepts in every industry, from pizza to pet care.
BAI Registered Franchise Consultants act as a matchmaker to help guide entrepreneurs through the sometimes complex and overwhelming world of franchise opportunities. At the same time, we train our consultants to help franchise systems find the entrepreneurs with the ideal resources, skill sets, and passion to succeed as part of their franchise network. There’s never been a better time to consider franchise consulting through BAI.
“Entrepreneurship is exploding. Corporate America is a lot less certain than it used to be and many people are looking at business ownership who never looked at it before and are ready to take the leap. Our Registered Franchise Consultants are ready to help, and in turn, create opportunities for more people,” says Natalie Barnes, President of BAI.

BAI provides a clear path towards business ownership
BAI consultants are passionate about helping entrepreneurs find the franchise opportunity that will set them on the path to success. As a Registered Franchise Consultant with BAI, you will work closely with entrepreneurs to learn about their vision, skill sets, and investment level so you can guide them towards a franchise opportunity that best suits them and their goals.
A recent article in America’s Best Franchises says the franchise industry “is primed to thrive in 2021” as the franchising industry is experienced and resilient, technology has given us new ways to do business, and an influx of young entrepreneurs are poised to embrace franchising. As entrepreneurs from all backgrounds begin to explore the possibilities of franchising, BAI is here to help guide them.
“The atmosphere of business in the world today has caused a lot of turmoil. Whenever that happens – and I’ve been in this business 20 years – people have a lot of fear. A lot of it is real; people fear getting laid off, and at a certain age, it is tougher to get another job so they want to start a business,” says franchise industry expert Brian Felderstein. “We handhold people, we coach them, and we give them opportunities that they may not have even known existed. It’s the American dream to be in business for themselves.”
Our brokers are highly qualified and may opt to work full-time, part-time, or run their home-based business in conjunction with another business. It’s also an affordable opportunity that includes license and training fee, along with the necessary working capital to launch your business. Unlike other franchise brokerage firms, BAI doesn’t charge a monthly membership or ongoing fees. We are financially healthy due to performance and have a vested interest in helping our brokers close more deals.
We’re in a new golden age of entrepreneurship and BAI is here to help guide entrepreneurs toward the right opportunity. If you’re passionate about helping entrepreneurs succeed and want to get started a new chapter in your professional career, becoming a Registered Franchise Consultant with BAI is a wise choice.
