The concept was well received because it offered an alternative to purchasing a franchise and becoming a royalty-paying franchisee.
Of the many services provided by the company, Earla participated in the negotiation of long term leases on behalf of the clients, assisted the clients in obtaining all required licenses and permits for their new business, and assisted in the grand opening advertising and promotion.
After a number of years, the Director of Real Estate for the company elected to branch out and form a separate real estate company specializing in the automotive service industry, and Earla was selected to join him. Together they negotiated hundreds of leases – not only on behalf of independent owner operators – but also with the leading auto service franchise companies that were expanding throughout the state of California.
In 2004 Earls joined Sean Edelstein’s business sales brokerage and added the sale of auto service business to her portfolio. The specialty soon became know in the auto service industry and soon Earla was being readily recognized and was receiving many referrals. Her background and knowledge in this field is a definite asset to all parties in a given transaction.
