PROFESSIONAL. EXPERIENCED. INFORMED.

I have been where you are. As a former franchisee, I have walked the walk and promise to be your honorable guide.

I am happy to share my story,  what is yours?  

I am located in Massachusetts, helping people all over North America.

Elaine Vakalopoulos, B.S.,M.S.

Becoming a franchise consultant is a perfect convergence of my career spanning thirty years of brokerage, finance, analytics and small business management, including owning a franchise. 

After a decade matching tenants and buyers with the best commercial property options, I earned a Masters Degree in Real Estate from M.I.T.  

This took my real estate career to a new level, including Wall Street. Today, back on Main Street, I apply those same analytical skills to franchising.

Think of me as a Realtor of Franchises

A Realtor has an MLS inventory of homes. Similarly, there are thousands of franchises across over 65 categories.  Without guidance, it can be hard to know where to begin.  

Franchises have a checklist relative to the candidate profile they see;  I know that checklist.

My goal is to support your enlightened decision to ensure the best possible franchise-candidate match based upon your particular skill sets, personality, investment criteria, life goals and territory.  


Diligent and thorough, I will support you every step of the way.  

In the end, I am indifferent as to which franchise a candidate pursues, provided it is suitable for them and the franchisor, a win-win for all. 

Remember: my services come at no cost to you. 


Reach out to arrange a low-key conversation to learn if franchising is the right path for you.
