Why Franchisor Stan Krempges Joined Growth Coach Franchise

With a deep knowledge of franchise systems, he knew this was a winner

Stan Krempges is as much of an expert in franchising as anyone can be. After all, before purchasing a Growth Coach territory in Springfield, MO, he built his own successful franchise system restoring and reconditioning wood surfaces.

Over the years, Stan grew his company into a 34-location operation in 18 states before he tired of the corporate world. He wanted to do more, and coaching was always in the back of his mind.

“When I sold my business 5 years ago, I considered doing some type of coaching,” Stan says. “I stayed on with the franchise company, but I really spent a lot of time researching business coaching. I couldn’t find anything I could get fired up about or was confident in. That is, until I found The Growth Coach.”

Stan’s story is all too familiar — a successful business owner who was ready to take that next step and put decades of career experience to work for others. The Growth Coach is an industry-leading business coaching franchise, established in more than 150 markets in the United States and abroad. Our business coaching system eliminates the barriers that prevent smaller operations from gaining the benefits of coaching — our proprietary coaching system is delivered in a group setting where owners, managers and salespeople meet quarterly to work through our effective management, sales and interpersonal coaching programs. Since our founding in 1992, our coaches have helped thousands of small business owners achieve their personal and professional goals. For Growth Coaches like Stan, the proof is in the system.

“I know franchise systems, and the more I dug in, the more I grew confident in this system,” Stan says. “Once I saw the materials and programs clients work through, I began to realize, ‘This is it. This is the one for Stan.’”

He opened The Growth Coach of Springfield earlier this year and just a couple of months out of training, he’s about to begin his first group workshop, in which he’ll host roughly a dozen business owners and manager.

Stan says he has the confidence and skills he needs to conduct this workshop because the training was extensive and provided him with a solid foundation for helping his clients. The Growth Coach franchise is a comprehensive business system that covers all the bases, according to Stan.

“It’s not just the product and the process and the training, or even their 20 year success record,” he says. “It’s incredible follow-up support. I walked out of that training with my personalized 90-day secret to my success plan. And I’ve been following it.”

Along the way, he’s had a weekly phone call with his franchise consultant. And after each call, Stan emerges even more enthusiastic and energized than when he started down the path to owning a Growth Coach franchise.

That enthusiasm is translating to a lot of buzz for The Growth Coach in Stan’s market. He’s getting great feedback from business owners and managers from all walks of life. Among the first business owners who he’s expecting to take part in the workshop are an insurance salesman wanting to grow his sales roster and a screen printer struggling with the ever-increasing demands of managing a growing staff.

If these businesses sound a little “small potatoes” for a business coach, that’s in part because the Growth Coach’s unique system of group coaching makes business coaching affordable to the 28 million small- and medium-sized companies in America. Take for example, the small building contractor who is looking to the future.

“He’s kind of working towards his exit plan,” Stan says. By helping this client examine his goals and activities, The Growth Coach is also ensuring that the company will continue after he’s retired. “It’s still a few years away, but he knows it’s time to be working towards that.”
