Ms. Schroeter’s experience as an entrepreneur, teacher and counselor make her uniquely qualified to be involved in this project. She began her franchising career in educational franchising with Kiddie Academy Child Care Learning Centers, moving from Franchise Specialist to Executive Vice President during her tenure. Britt broadened her exposure and expertise in franchising working for Decorating Den, Molly Maid, Mr. HandyMan and 1-800-DryClean. From there, she became the Director of Franchise Development for Sylvan Learning Systems, Inc., propelling the system to the largest growth experienced in their twenty-plus year history.
Growing up in a “restaurant family,” she saw the challenges of “going-it-alone.” She also knows the value of a franchise first-hand, as she and her husband are franchisees for a premier service franchise. Britt not only “talks the talk” but she “walks the walk” every day balancing her family, the family business and her consulting practice.
For almost a decade Ms. Schroeter has been an independent franchise consultant. She offers her extensive knowledge in franchising to individuals across the United States. With her guidance, a prospective franchisee can confidently make this key decision based upon knowledge. Britt knows this workbook can broaden the reach, beyond her consulting practice to help others make really smart business decisions. It is her goal that this book becomes a key resource from business classrooms in Cambridge to kitchen tables in Kansas.
In her spare time Britt promotes entrepreneurship as a guest expert for the International Franchise Association, The Wall Street Journal, Inc. Magazine and on television, radio, and at speaking engagements throughout the country as a motivational speaker and content expert.
Ms. Schroeter holds a Bachelor of Education from the University of Maryland and a Masters in Business Management from The Johns Hopkins University. She lives in suburban Baltimore, Maryland with her husband and two fun children.
