A FranNet consultant since 1999, Leslie Kuban provides education and support to individuals who are interested in owning franchised businesses. Leslie has helped more than 250 people make the transition from corporate life to business ownership, and she credits her personal experience as a franchise owner with giving her the perspective to help clients find the quality of life they want.
Upon graduating from Vanderbilt University, Leslie had already operated family-owned franchises, and she became a franchise owner in 1996. As the operating partner of a Mail Boxes Etc. franchise, Leslie joined the local support team to assist other MBE franchise owners successfully run their businesses. Leslie continues as a franchise owner today as a FranNet franchisee.
According to Leslie, “My role is to provide education on the franchise industry and help you find the right solution to reach your goals. My services are no cost and help you understand the pros and cons of owning a business.”
Leslie received the FranNet Consultant of the Year awards in 2002 and 2004; the FranNet Top Gun Award in 2007; and the Commitment to Excellence award in 2009. When she’s not helping clients find their ideal businesses, Leslie is an active sponsor of the Atlanta Humane Society and Literacy Volunteers of America.
Logic Does Not Apply, Leslie’s latest project, is a blog that looks at counterintuitive lessons in business and life.
