The Entrepreneur’s Source Terry Powell Welcomes Greg Tanner to FSBI Advisory Board

Franchise Source Brands International™ (FSBI), parent company to The Entrepreneur’s Source, is excited to announce that Greg Tanner, co-founder and partner of the Tanner Franchise Group, has joined FSBI’s advisory board. Tanner is a well-respected franchise industry veteran and comes to the advisory board in hopes of enhancing the brand’s overall growth strategy.

“Greg’s experience serving in multiple roles in the franchise industry over the past four decades will help us enhance various initiatives, including helping people move from Employment to Empowerment through franchising,” said The Entrepreneur’s Source Terry Powell, founder of FSBI. “We just hit our 30th anniversary and are stronger than ever, implementing several new marketing strategies and initiatives to help not only our brands grow, but also our franchisor partners. Greg’s advice and guidance will help us continue to move in the right direction.”

Tanner has been in the franchising industry for over 40 years, serving as a senior-level corporate executive, franchisor, franchisee, development manager and Tanner Franchise Group consulting partner.

He is recognized for his wealth of insight and on-point guidance in franchising, many of which he has assembled into his book, TANNERISMS. Tanner recently retired on July 1, 2014 from Aaron’s where he was awarded more than 900 franchises.

“When I announced my retirement from Aaron’s, I vowed that I was not retiring from franchising,” Tanner said. “Through the Tanner Franchise Group and now with Franchise Source, I can truly help franchisors grow their businesses. This role with Franchise Source Brands allows me do so within the FSBI network, as well as within the hundreds of franchisor partners who come to them for help building their franchise systems and implementing the right strategies to maintain happy, successful franchisees.”

Tanner also currently serves as an IFA VetFran committee member. In 2012, Tanner was named a Top 20 person to watch by Franchise Times magazine. His success in franchising can also be seen by his nomination to the International Franchise Association Hall of Fame.
