Christina joined the Franworth team as Chief Development Officer in 2022. Christina caught the franchising bug 20 years ago as an intern at a small QSR franchise and found her calling in helping families realize their goals and dreams through business ownership. As a Franchise Development executive, she has enjoyed progressive success in accelerating company growth in established and emerging franchise brands across multiple sectors (food, service, fitness). In addition to awarding hundreds of franchises herself, Christina inspires teams to surpass goals in franchise sales, real estate, and construction, sets successful strategies and tactics, and believes in coaching through servant leadership. She and her husband Ken love the franchise industry so much that they proudly became franchisees themselves for seven years with Great American Cookies. Being in the trenches herself gives Christina an extra insight into what works — and what doesn’t — in a successful franchisor-franchisee relationship.
