Our Story

FPG was founded in 2002 by 30-year franchising veteran Joe Mathews. Mathews worked as a recruitment manager for Subway when they hit their tipping point.  FPG was built under the premise that franchising is a business unto itself and certain strategies to grow a franchisor will work across industries, investment levels and brands.  Since then, FPG has invented and perfected a franchisee recruitment system which is proven to accelerate a franchisor’s growth, driving revenues, royalties and equity value.
