Every Kid Needs Their Blind Side Protected. How Franchising Affords Leigh Anne Tuohy a Platform to Help.

Broadcast Date: March 24, 2022

Broadcast Time : 5:00p EST / 4:00p CST / 3:00p MST /2:00p PST

This week our guest is The Blind Side’s Leigh Anne Tuohy. Over the years, she and her husband owned upward of 100 franchise locations including Taco Bells, KFCs, Long John Silvers and Pizza Huts. Their success allowed them the opportunity to foster children and eventually adopt Michael Oher on whom the movie was based. Today, Leigh Anne is a fierce advocate for foster care, especially for those nearing their 18th birthdays and who are aging out of the system. She also sits on the Taco Bell Foundation Board. Learn more about how giving has become such an integral part of the Tuohy family’s life and how they give back through franchising.

In our Pillars segments, Jerry Akers discusses the chapter in his book, Live It 2 Own It about operations in your franchise. David Kajganich gives us an update on The Joint and Karen Kimsey-Sward reveals her Book of the Month – Atomic Habits.

Join host Ray Pillar, Owner of Molly Maid Aurora-Naperville and co-host Kristin Selmeczy, Chief Business Warrior of Pillars of Franchising as they discuss how to be successful at finding a franchise, identifying funding solutions, the purchasing process, developing marketing strategies and expanding and selling your franchise.
