Sharon Ramadeen

The thought of purchasing a franchise was the last thing on my mind when I attended an investment show in 2013. But, what made me walk up to the booth for ICAN Education were the welcoming smiles of the exhibitors. Umesh and Uma were friendly, informative and very passionate about their services and brand. I’d spoken to a few other companies offering the same type of services, but when speaking to Umesh and Uma I knew the product and services they were offering to their clients and the support they would provide to their franchisees exceeded what other companies were offering. It didn’t take me long to decide that I wanted to start the process of obtaining and opening a franchise.

They were very open and honest about the process, so there were no surprises. They walked me through every step from finding a space, to marketing, to developing a client base. They were always available to answer any questions, regardless of how small, which made the process very pleasant.

They have the experience and can offer valuable advice on everything from the day to day operations, the behind the scenes business operations and the customer service aspect. Two years later, they are still available to answer all my questions.

I had such a positive experience, I’d recommended ICAN Education to a friend of mine who was looking for a business opportunity.
