FBA Broker: Jaime Sanchez

Friends Expand Kitchen Tune-Up within Two San Antonio Territories

As an FBA broker for the past two years, Jaime Sanchez is familiar with helping his clients become their own boss. But when his best friend from elementary school brought up that he was looking for a franchise-based business partner, Jaime saw the unique opportunity to invest in the franchise model himself. The two friends began looking into options that focused on good leadership and a strong community, which were two important traits of their decision-making process. They looked at several options, however, when they came across Kitchen Tune-Up, they discovered there were two prime territories available within their area of San Antonio. They also loved the business model that Kitchen Tune-Up offered, and with all of the boxes checked – including the option for an executive model – they knew they had to pursue it.  

“Since I am also an FBA broker, I needed something that I can build out with an executive model,” Jaime said. “My business partner also has other businesses that are an owner/operator model, so this was important for both of us.” 

At the same time, his roommate from college reached out to him also wanting to invest in a franchise system. Jaime mentioned Kitchen Tune-Up to him, and the other territory available within San Antonio.  

“He was in the process himself, and we bought the franchise at the same time, not on purpose,” Jaime said. “It’s a cool team and a good community that we are building among ourselves.”

Finding Franchise System Success 

With a solid validation process and a great team behind them, Jaime felt confident that this was the right franchise fit for himself, as well as the group.  

“It is the first franchise I have bought into,” Jaime said. “Since I was the broker, the buying process was easy and smooth. It was really great working with Craig at Kitchen Tune-Up as well.”

As a franchise consultant, Jaime specializes in working with Hispanic and foreign investors. Working with his close friends and personal connections in his life – while investing in the franchise himself – became a great way of putting his FBA skills to work for himself. The group was able to attend virtual training together under one room, and were already seeing payoff before launching. 

“Within the first weeks we were already getting leads while we were in training,” said Jaime. “We finished training April 1st, and already had our first project within the first month.”

Note: We use the term “Franchise Broker” because it is the legal term for our profession. Others in the industry use “Franchise Consultants” which they self-define. We choose to use the legal term as we feel it’s more appropriate and clear. Consultants typically charge for services. Franchise Brokers are paid by the Seller, not the Buyer. There is no charge to the Buyer for our Franchise Broker services.
