Doug Stout ’s first franchise was a single unit, home based model, TES. He owned this franchise for 10 years and was recognized as one of the top coaches. He was nominated for numerous awards, won several awards, was an Ambassador for seven years and was asked to speak at several conferences to talk about best practices in the industry.
His second franchise was a partnership as a Master Developer. Mr. Stout and his partner developed half of North Carolina and South Carolina for Always Best Care. After five years of successful ownership, the other partners bought Mr. Stout out so that he could start his third franchise, Pro Martial- a semi-absentee ownership franchise. Mr. Stout sold that business as he and his wife started a family with a new daughter. Since that time Mr. Stout has been doing development work for a local franchisor, ARCpoint Labs.
Doug Stout has a passion for helping people to achieve their dreams of business ownership.

Mr. Stout is originally from West Virginia and is a graduate from West Virginia University. For the last 20 years, Doug has lived in Greenville SC.
