Franchisee Since: March 2011
Service Area: North Metro Atlanta
Like so many Americans, Monte Bruner lost his job when his employer went out of business in the wake of the recession. A surveyor and civil engineer by trade, Bruner knew it would be challenging to find another job and began exploring other options. He worked with a franchise broker to narrow down a list of hundreds of franchise opportunities to a few service-oriented businesses.
