My Auction Addiction Franchise -Interview with CEO, Lloyed Swartz

I started as a business entrepreneur at age 11, with several small businesses from selling berries to landscaping. Over my decades of experience I owned Restaurants, franchises, a construction business and was exposed to many other different and diverse industries. After the construction down turn, I decided in 2011 it was time to put my decades of experience to use in creating a sustainable, highly profitable, and low overhead business that could be franchised so anyone could be successful. Realizing technology is the way of the future and the Estate Sale business is exploding, I decided to create a more efficient way for goods to be sold in a Liquidation environment such as Estate Sales, Moving or Downsizing Sales. After nearly 5 years in business I know what I will be doing for the rest of my working career, having fun and making great money while helping others!

FE: What advice do you have for someone looking to acquire a Franchise?
LS:  Look beyond the big names, bright lights, flashy booths and legacy brick and mortar concepts. The most profitable businesses are employing unique technology and low overhead. Consider something unique, rather than something that is over saturated already. For example; we need many more Estate Sellers to handle the growth of the aging population, but do we really need more burger joints? Look for opportunities with wide open and guaranteed territories. Something where your return on investment is fast and risk is low. Consider flexibility, personal support and quality of life. For example; do you want a 7 day a week business? Or some weekends and holidays off? Something you will enjoy will also bring you a greater likely hood of success.

LS: We provide you with everything you need for a ridiculously low startup cost. You can earn brick and mortar revenues from your home office while enjoying a higher quality of life. By utilizing a high tech approach and a unique concept you can outperform competitors in never before imagined ways while delivering a superior result to clients.
