She began her career as a Unit Manager for TCBY in the company’s second highest volume store and quickly moved up the corporate ladder. As Franchise Training Specialist, she taught the company’s operating system to over 350 franchisees a year. As Regional Operations Director for the West, Robin assisted new franchisees with both the site selection and new store opening processes. She also worked with seasoned franchisees in goal-setting, budget preparation, P&L management and marketing plan implementation.

As Regional Sales Director for Mrs. Fields Famous Brands, Robin significantly increased the number of franchised units throughout the southeast and was the company’s #1 producer for 4 years. Most recently, Robin relocated to Chicago where she worked as National Director of Non-Traditional Accounts for Carvel Ice Cream, managing the development of airports, travel plazas, malls, colleges/universities and theme parks throughout the US.

In 2005, Robin started her own franchise consulting firm, where she began working to educate and introduce hundreds to the world of franchising. Since then, she and her husband, Danny have acquired and sold several franchised businesses. Robin launched her own quick-service restaurant and most recently, she was hired by a private company to develop a self-service frozen yogurt shop concept.

Robin enjoys reading, cooking and spending time with Danny and their 3 dogs. However, the excitement and reward of helping others experience business ownership through franchising remains one of her greatest passions.
