Pete Gilfillan is a passionate business leader who is driven to help people achieve their dreams of career independence through franchise ownership. With more than twenty years experience as a corporate executive across multiple industries and a history of small business ownership, Pete brings a wide breadth of experience to his work as a franchise consultant. His unique knowledge of franchising, energetic outlook, and determination to find the right franchise for each candidate s lifestyle and goals set Pete apart in his field. In some ways, Pete s been in franchising all his life. He was raised in an entrepreneurial family where both his father and grandfather owned successful franchise enterprises. As a young man, Pete spent seventeen years working at Ford Motor Company, rapidly advancing through a variety of regional and national positions to reach the role of general manager where he guided up to six hundred franchise dealerships generating $5 billion in revenue. In his executive capacity, Pete was able to gain an in-depth knowledge of the mechanics, strengths, and benefits of franchising from the corporate side of the table. Pete became a franchise owner himself in 2010 when he purchased a multi-state master license to a junk removal franchise. His investment gave him the opportunity to better understand the benefi ts and challenges of being a franchisee and the importance of choosing the right franchise for one s strengths, talents, and business objectives. Since 2011, Pete has been working as an independent franchise consultant with FranChoice to help potential franchisees gather information, evaluate opportunities, and make smart selections in franchise ownership. In his role of helping each candidate fi nd his or her optimum investment and lifestyle choice, Pete has found his most fulfi lling and rewarding professional calling.
