BAI has decades of experience working closely with a network of franchise systems and the best training and support in the industry
Business Alliance, Inc., the nation’s premier franchise brokerage firm, is one of the most trusted names in the franchise industry. Since 1991, we’ve been recruiting qualified candidates to launch their own business as an independent franchise brokerage. We train them and provide our many years of knowledge to help them start a successful and flexible business that is both financially and emotionally rewarding.
Franchise brokers play a vital role in the franchise industry, acting as a matchmaker to help guide entrepreneurs through the sometimes complex and overwhelming world of franchise opportunities. At the same time, we train great franchise brokers 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 as more people are rethinking their traditional 9 to 5 job and yearning to branch out on their own. BAI stands out as the trusted network to help guide entrepreneurs towards a sound franchise investment.
“We’re known for our ability to deliver results and for the quality of our Registered Franchise Consultants – and we’re very selective because of that,” says Natalie Barnes, President of BAI. “We bring franchisees to franchisors, and when a franchise agreement is executed, everyone wins. The consultant gets a very healthy commission, and we get a percentage of that commission. We’re a performance-based model and we’re financially healthy because our success is tied to the deals that are closing.”

“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.”
