Located across the United States, Winfree Business Growth Advisors coaching franchises help sales professionals and small business owners maximize growth potential and take their respective businesses to a higher level through cutting-edge sales coaching and business development coaching, sales training, and seminars.

"Steve embodies what we’re trying to accomplish with our business coaching franchises and sales coaching franchises," said Dr. Winfree. "The fact that he was able to triple his sales from 2005 to 2006 speaks for itself. It speaks even louder when you realize Winfree has two other sales coaching and business coaching franchises right in his backyard covering the metropolitan Chicago area."

Fretzin became a Winfree Business Growth Advisors coaching franchise owner in 2005, after working in the sign franchising industry for several years, coaching more than 50 franchisees in the Midwest on sales, marketing, management and operations. In his career, both as a Winfree Business Growth Advisor franchisee and in his previous position, he helped more than 35 franchise owners buy/sell their companies in a four-year period.

"It’s quite an honor to receive the "Franchise of the Year" award, even more so when you consider the caliber of franchisees Winfree Business Growth Advisors has in its ranks," said Fretzin. "The irony of receiving an award like this is that I’m able to do well with my coaching franchise because of the very philosophies and systems we espouse for sales professionals and small business owners. First as my coach and now as a mentor, Dr. Winfree showed me a better way and the sky is literally the limit."

Winfree Business Growth Advisors offerings include: business development coaching, sales coaching, sales training, sales management training, owner coaching, seminars, advice in recruiting and hiring sales people, advice to owners on growth issues for their businesses, and exit strategies and succession planning for their companies. Yet its Winfree’s signature Black Belt System™--a 12-step sales and marketing program covering everything from initial marketing efforts to customer retention—that converts Winfree clients into advocates and franchise owners.

Winfree Business Growth Advisors currently runs 10 coaching franchises in total, located in Georgia (Atlanta), Illinois (Chicago), Kentucky (Louisville), Massachusetts (Boston), New Jersey (Princeton), New Mexico (Albuquerque), Texas (Dallas-Fort Worth) and Washington (Seattle-Tacoma-Bremerton) and has openings in several states.
