Franchising for Growth: How to Build a Profitable Business Empire with Yoel Gutierrez

Are you considering franchising as a way to start or grow your business? As shared by today's guest, franchising can be a great stepping stone into other business opportunities. 

In this week's episode of the Franchise Secrets Podcast, host Erik Van Horn shines the spotlight on Yoel Gutierrez, co-owner of Mosquito Joe of Miami and leader of a Mastermind group called Franchise Empire Builders. 

Most of Yoel's professional career has been spent working in IT, but he always knew he wanted to own a business. He initially didn’t think it would be a franchise that kills mosquitoes. But, as his wife complained about mosquito bites, Yoel knew Mosquito Joe would be an excellent place to start. And he's happy with how it all turned out. His franchise has grown 4x since he opened it in 2015, making it one of the top Mosquito Joe franchises nationwide.

With the business doing great, Yoel takes great pride in his employees and what they do. The success of Mosquito Joe was just the beginning. He is now an owner and partner in a mold assessment company, a high-end auto detailing business, and many other companies. 

Tune in and discover how to use franchising as a pathway to diverse business ventures.
