The IFPG is much more than a network of franchise professionals. We are a family of established, experienced, and dedicated individuals with one common goal: helping aspiring entrepreneurs realize their dreams of business ownership. We take that responsibility seriously and always consider a candidate’s best interests as our number-one priority. By following The IFPG Code of Ethics, our Consultants ensure that an appropriate match between candidates and Franchisors is always made.

Our inclusive and innovative culture has helped us earn our distinction as Entrepreneur Magazine’s top Franchise Broker Network for two years in a row. Our strength is a result of our people.

Our membership-based structure creates a level playing field for all of our members. Since we don’t participate in any referral fees, our members can work freely together in an honest and open environment. Our long-term success is predicated on retaining our members through ethical business practices and providing all they need to close more deals.

Founder and CEO, Don Daszkowski launched IFPG in 2012 and has spent years studying the industry and implementing ongoing strategies that produce results for the IFPG members. In 2019, Don enlisted entrepreneur Red Boswell to fill the role of President and help continue his mission. With the use of technology, networking events, and proactive member support, Don, Red and their team have made IFPG the obvious choice for experienced franchise professionals.
