Leslie Johnson with Tailored Business Consulting brings over 20 years of business experience to the franchise broker industry. She has 10 years in corporate management, working closely with global companies and clients.
Her 17+ years as a Franchisee, Master Franchisee and General Manager for a Multi-Brand Franchisor, provides her with a vast understanding of franchising on multiple fronts. In 2004, Leslie bought an emerging promotional product brand and launched it in Canada. She worked closely with the Franchisor to grow and support the country, earning herself a spot in the Hall of Fame as well as the Ambassador Award.
Leslie later took the skills she developed and became a Master Franchisor in the commercial cleaning industry, developing a region in South Florida.
Her husband Mark also has over 30 years of franchise experience and continues to represent one of Entrepreneur Magazine’s top 50 growing franchise brands. One of the things Leslie didn’t love about her career was only being able to offer potential franchisees the brands she currently represented.
Being a broker gives her the ability to match candidates and franchises without limitations. Her honest approach and success in running multiple businesses and wearing multiple hats make her a perfect fit for the franchise brokering world.
Today, Leslie uses her wealth of experience to assist aspiring business owners. She helps determine which franchise opportunity best aligns with their skill sets, strengths, goals, and values while guiding them through the process towards realizing their dream of business ownership.

In the last 4 years, since selling his company, Mark has helped both franchise companies and people looking for a business, find each other and succeed.
Whether you are looking to find the right business or help your business grow, Mark is here to guide you through the steps toward achieving your goals.
