John Rotche took a deep dive into the world of franchising at an early age, when he joined Tom Monaghan at Domino’s in his mid-20s. Then, John helped Krispy Kreme go public before making the transition to the health industry at Title Boxing Club (only fitting after all those pizzas and doughnuts).

Today, he heads up Franworth, which helps emerging brands successfully branch into the franchise world.

In the latest episode of the “Winning on Main Street” podcast, John discusses his incredible career and offers tips for entrepreneurs and potential franchisors. John will also be speaking at Thryv’s Connect20 virtual summit on Nov. 10-11. Learn more here.
