MEET TODD WOODS
With over 20 years of experience as a business owner and multi-unit franchisee of (2) multi-million dollar companies, Todd has experienced it all from struggling and near failure (learning experiences) to massive success.
He understands tight cash flow, the challenges of hiring the right people and keeping them, dealing with problem employees, vendors, upset customers, growing pains, landlord relations, business partner challenges, accounting issues, internal theft, etc., etc., etc.
Through real life business experience, and making mistakes, Woods has overcome, and now shares with other Franchise business owners how to get their business working FOR them and not AGAINST them.
He is the co-author of Guerrilla Marketing for Franchisees, with Jay Conrad Levinson. Jay was the author of the best-selling marketing series in history with over 40 million Guerrilla books sold worldwide.
He also authored Service! Some People Just Don’t Get It with Trapper Woods. Todd has spent his entire career (20+ years) owning businesses, consulting, and speaking on how to transform your franchise business from where it is to where you would like it to be.
Todd’s favorite and most successful business was as a multi-unit, franchise area developer where he managed 120+ employees in 5 locations with 3.4 million in revenues. After several years of struggle, and near complete failure, he turned the 5 locations around and consistently grew them at an average of 12% year over year, while the company growth averaged 6.0%. Woods achieved!
Todd’s strength is in workshop-style setting. He will engage with them as an expert and one of them … a franchisee. He not only understands the full experience of running multiple franchise locations at once, but is a local area marketing expert.

“Hi my name is Brad Davis, President of Abundant Brands. We franchise several companies and own several as well. We had the privilege of bringing Todd into our system to help us understand our goals & objectives with one of our brands Roxberry Juice. We used his services for 6 months of which he provided awesome direction in helping bring our franchisees together and understand better their potential as well as roles & responsibilities. This resulted in sales increases we haven’t seen for a long time as well as re-energizing our franchisees. The money invested in bringing him in was more than worth it. I would highly recommend you use his services if you are looking for specific solutions or just general direction.” — Brad Davis, President, Abundant Brands

“Last Winter I was tasked with creating a unique agenda for a portion of our annual Sales Meeting. I thought of Todd right away and as expected, he infused the room with enthusiasm. Wow! I was amazed that in such a short time period of time we were able to learn so much. Yes, he is tremendously motivating, but in addition, we came away with content and skills that we could implement right away. My team not only thanked me that weekend, but they still bring up concepts they learned and reference the session more than a year later. What a great investment that has brought us a great return. I only wish we could have doubled the length of our session. Next time!” — Kimberly W. District, Manager McGraw-Hill Education

I highly recommend him.” — James Finnegan, CEO Inspiring Physicians
