Assisting aspiring entrepreneurs since 2006.

I'm Nan Stricker, founder and president of GPS Franchise. I began my journey into business ownership shortly after leaving the corporate world with Procter & Gamble. Being an entrepreneur allowed me the freedom and flexibility our young family needed at the time and I became passionate about helping others gain control of their lives and their futures through owning a business.

At GPS Franchise, we take a methodical approach to the research process and are dedicated to finding the best fit for candidates while minimizing their risk. We value the trust candidates place in us and are passionate about helping them achieve their goal of business ownership. Are you ready to invest in yourself?


"Let's work together to find the best fit for you."

There are thousands of franchise concepts available in a variety of categories. So, how do you know which ones are the best? Finding the ultimate fit for you will require some research as well as a bit of soul-searching.

We've been assisting aspiring entrepreneurs for over 14 years and have a proven process for guiding candidates through the franchise evaluation process.

Hear from others who chose to invest in themselves.


Mark & Rachel Healy

Franchise Owner

"My wife and I worked with Nan when we decided that we were ready to make some changes. We wanted to look into the option of owning our own business but knew that we did not want to start a business from the ground up.

Nan was able to discover our skills sets and desires and made several recommendations of franchises that may be a good fit for us. Nan walked with us through each step of the process. We decided on a franchise in the senior care segment and couldn't be happier with our decision."


Randy Carlson

Franchise Owner

"Recently I found myself at a major fork in my career road and sought assistance and advice from Nan regarding the possibility of becoming an independent business owner. Having no entrepreneurial experience in my 30+ yr career in management I was very skeptical about this potential career path.

She demonstrated a tremendous ability to listen and discern what really motivates and fulfills me both personally and professionally. Nan is most concerned with making sure that the advice she provides truly fits the person seeking her professional guidance and insight."


Nathan Sernoffsky, MBA

Franchise Owner

"Nan worked with me as my Franchise broker. I was very happy with the entire process. She used several different resources, such as surveys, to narrow down the choices she presented to me but she also got to know me as a person. 

She helped and coached me to ask the right questions and go through the right steps in order to make the best decision. She brought me many useful resources to help me with the purchase of my franchise. Once I made my decision, Nan continued to support me, again coaching me and steering me in the right direction. I would definitely recommend Nan to anyone looking to go into business for themselves."
