Jessica & Dawn – Supporting Strategies Partners
Chris has been an incredible asset as we evaluated and navigated the world of franchising. New to business ownership and franchising, we relied on Chris’s expertise, knowledge, patience, and professionalism to help determine the best match for us. He introduced us to a range of unique franchise brands across the spectrum of business models and guided us through the entire due diligence process. He also got to know us as individuals, learning our goals and priorities to help drive toward our decision. We explored several options and are excited with our final selection. We could not have done it without Chris – he was a true partner from start to signature.

Chris did an incredible job helping us find the perfect franchise fit. He made sure he clearly understood our goals, and provided several franchise options that matched those goals.

Jig – Yoga 6
Chris has been an extremely invaluable asset in guiding me to invest in the correct franchise. It can be overwhelming with a multitude of options for potential franchisees. He does an excellent job from the beginning of understanding “YOU” before even delving into suitable options that might make a great fit. His experience is quite evident with knowledge of Discovery Day and things to look for, his ability to realistically look at a Pro Forma, his ability to understand data analytics that will allow you to find the best territory, and relevant market factors to precisely pinpoint the most ideal location for your franchise.
There are so many positives of my experience to list. Most importantly, I would highly recommend anyone looking to invest in a franchise to always start with a consultant. Chris is second to none in this aspect and just a great person. Make sure you do things the right way from the start – contact Chris today. It’ll be one of the best investments you make!
Cynthia – Certa Pro
From beginning to end, our experience with Chris was nothing less than exceptional! His passion, in-depth knowledge & experience in entrepreneurship/franchising, professionalism, guidance and partnership were invaluable to my husband and me. When we decided to embark on this journey, we were looking for someone to “hold our hand” as we navigated this very new (and scary) venture in our lives. Chris did that by really understanding our interests, needs and financial profile/goals to match us to top notch brands to consider. This took us on a path to owning a Painting Services franchise that we NEVER would have considered had it not been for Chris’ thoughtful insights. A comprehensive and thorough due diligence process guided by Chris, led us to a phenomenal choice in buying a CertaPro Painters franchise. We couldn’t have done it without Chris Cynkar!
Eric – Profile
I’ve worked with Chris on reviewing a number of franchise brands, and I find his advice to be well reasoned and well intentioned. Chris takes the time to understand what I’m looking for in an opportunity, and presents options that match my criteria. He even recommended I stop pursuing a franchise after several weeks of review, when the franchisor changed their rules– he didn’t think it was still a good opportunity. He is an excellent resource to have in your corner.
Chris – Exercise Coach
Chris was wonderful to work with in what could be considered a stressful time. I thoroughly enjoyed the process and feel like, through many iterations, I ended up with the best solution for my unique requirements. Chris was very patient with my many questions and concerns and was a voice of reason when considering multiple brands. If I get lucky enough to look at another business in the future, Chris will be the first person I call.
Scott – Certa Pro
Working with Chris was great. I had left a job and, after 20 years, decided I no longer wanted to work in the investment business and I no longer wanted to work for a corporation. I had an idea about starting something on my own, but it was only an idea. I had no practical understanding of how to make this happen. I was introduced to Chris, through a friend, and, from the start, I knew Chris was going to help me get where I wanted to go. Chris took me through the whole process of buying a franchise from the funding, to the due diligence, and even through negotiating the deal with the seller. I ended up buying a great company that I wouldn’t have found without Chris.
Zach – My Salon Suite
Working with Chris Cynkar was a true pleasure from start to finish. From the moment we first started speaking, I felt a connection with Chris and his personal approach. Chris listened and empathized to my situation, along with my goals and desires for the future, and made me feel comfortable that he was always looking out for my best interests throughout our entire process. By doing so, Chris was able to help me find excellent brands that fit best into my future goals, assist me with doing due diligence in the market place with each opportunity, and provide guidance every step of the way to ultimately find the franchise that I could be most successful and happy with. Chris helped me investigate each opportunity and was always available to talk throughout the entire process, while providing a wealth of knowledge and valuable viewpoints with each opportunity. Chris listened to my thought process each step of the way, and truly felt like a mentor throughout the entire process. I hope to work again with him in the future and would absolutely recommend Chris Cynkar to anybody who is thinking about going through the franchise validation and discovery process!
Thank you Chris for making me comfortable from the start and providing your guidance every step of the way!
