Fun with franchising – that’s Stacy Swift! She’s been around the franchise block a few times. She’s been a part of the franchise industry for over 25 years and has helped hundreds of people invest in franchises since 1996. She has also owned several franchises herself during that time (consulting, handyman, and hair salons), so she knows what her clients are going through when they make a franchise investment. Stacy has also served on several committees with the International Franchise Association. When she isn’t working with clients, you’ll find Stacy on the ski slopes or whacking away at a golf ball. Her latest obsession? Stand-up paddleboarding at Colorado lakes and reservoirs! She’s not too bad in the kitchen either and can pair a mean bottle of wine with pretty much anything.

Cindy worked in Corporate America for over 20 years before breaking the corporate chains in 2001. Early in the business ownership game, Cindy got really good at the “jobby” (turning a hobby into a job) selling artsy-crafty items – way before Etsy was even a thing. Since then, she has owned a few different businesses including a copywriting business and a neighborhood magazine business. Her family now owns two locations of a hair care franchise. Cindy loves all things franchising and has been a broker/consultant since 2009. She drives her family crazy with funny phrases like “recurring revenue”, “semi-absentee ownership”, “multi-unit” and “work on the business, not in it.” Cindy is also a proud Colorado native.
