CEO of the fastest-growing restoration franchise speaks at the Titus Center for Franchising
Gary Findley, CEO of Restoration 1 and bluefrog Plumbing + Drain, is passionately committed to helping entrepreneurs improve their lives and realize their goals through business ownership.
As a veteran of the franchising industry, Findley has helped hundreds of entrepreneurs build successful businesses across many brands, in many markets nationwide.
His long history of helping brands grow makes him the perfect candidate to speak to college students at the Titus Center for Franchising at Palm Beach Atlantic University in West Palm Beach, Florida. The program is the only one of its kind in the country, and college students get to experience exactly why franchising works at every level: from how to grow a franchise brand to how to succeed as a franchisee.
The Titus Center for Franchising recently published an article that captured Findley’s inspirational visit: “Franchise Growth Authority Gary Findley Shares Business Strategies With Titus Center for Franchising.” In the article, Findley is candid about his experience and his unique perspective, and he offers plenty for the audience to think about.
“There is no limit to what you can do, and I am living proof. If I can do it, you can do it, too.” That’s the advice Restoration 1 and bluefrog Plumbing + Drain CEO Gary Findley shared with students, faculty, advisory board members and guests of the Titus Center for Franchising Tuesday in the Vera Lea Rinker auditorium on campus.
Findley, who affectionately refers to himself as The Redneck CEO, recounted his experiences of growing up in a small Central Texas town where he spent his youth working on local farms and even “once riding my horse to school.” From those humble beginnings he has become one of franchising’s leading authorities on growing brands.
“The work style I learned growing up in the country continues to guide me today,” he said. “That’s where I learned the work ethic that I have today.”
