We’re on a mission to make investing in franchises easy for everyone

Franchising has long been a high-yield stream of income 

for those that can meet the high capital and time 

requirements necessary.

Franshares is the only platform making franchise investing accessible for anyone with as little as $500.

Unlocking franchise
investing for the rest of us

Kenny Rose, Founder & CEO

With a media reach of over 300 million people, Kenny Rose is a renowned expert on investing in franchises.

His career started off in finance at Merrill Lynch, advising individuals on building their portfolios to preserve and grow wealth. Coming from a family of entrepreneurs, he sought out how to confidently go into business ownership with predictable results and was introduced to the world of franchising.

As a franchise broker, he helped individuals identify, evaluate, and buy a franchise that matched their long term goals of either leaving the corporate world or adding an additional income stream to their portfolio.

After rising through the ranks of the world’s largest franchise brokerage, he founded Semfia, a franchise brokerage focused on income-producing and manager-run franchises.

His views on franchising have been featured in Business Insider, Forbes, ABC, TheHustle, American Express, the Amazon feature book “More Than Just French Fries,” and other publications around the world.
