John Batcheller spent his early years in process management and re-engineering divisions for large corporations. He was quite successful, so much so that early retirement was a feasible option. Soul searching lead him to his next venture of building a senior care franchise system with his wife, Lisa. After many years of hard work and perseverance it all paid off. In 2013, Stay At Home received the honorable award of Franchise Business Review Top 50.
John’s vast knowledge base stretches from building processes, legal issues and selling franchises. It was only natural that after making connections in the franchise industry that John would become the go-to guy for everything franchising.

It is the desire of John and Lisa to help you build your empire through franchising and realize your dreams.
