Boutique Franchise Executive Search & Recruiting

We specialize in recruiting within the franchise industry. Our focus is not solely on executive search. We love the recruiting segment in the 80K to 200K range. For emerging brands, these are the key people that will enable you to accelerate, provide exceptional support, and grow brand recognition. This salary band is also where mature brands will have the most team members and the ability to have a mass impact. It’s the totality of this team that enables a mature brand to continue to scale and provide exceptional support.

Values We Live By

Our mission is to achieve your goal in the franchise search process. We will not leave any rock unturned.

Clients want to find the very best franchise industry talent. Candidates want to find a home, feel valued, and grow within their careers. In creating our recruiting agency we coach candidates and clients in a cohesive exploration to find the perfect fit.

We will be straightforward and transparent so we can achieve a common goal. We ask a lot of questions because we seek to understand before we act.

Recruiting is not about what you get but what you give to the industry. We frequently ask for help, referrals, and guidance from our franchise industry peers. Conversely, when someone asks for our support in the franchise industry we provide it for the greater good, not for the bottom dollar.

If we commit to something consider us committed. If something is going slower or more difficult than usual we will let you know and bring in any resources we need to get the job done. 

We create life-long partners in the franchise industry. We got your back and will go to bat for you.


Franchise Hire Founder

Meet Tim Katsch

Tim Katsch is a former Franchise Executive who has built real estate, operations, marketing, and finance teams. He has held positions ranging from Director to Executive Vice President. Finding an executive recruiter and franchise team recruiter with hands-on P&L experience, company scaling experience and brand leadership is not an asset all executive search and recruiting firms in Franchising have.


Tim started his academic career focusing on economics; this led to a life of looking at human interactions through the lens of maximizing utility. He moved into a career in training and development, which grew into executive roles within retail services and the franchise industry. Along that journey, no matter what industry he was in, it was the people that were the key to business success. 

Franchisor to Recruiter

After 5 years with K9 Resorts (Franchisor), Tim exited as the Executive Vice President to pursue his dream; which is very similar to many franchisees. To own, operate and scale their own business. In looking back at his career in franchising thus far he was most proud of the people he hired, coached, and had the privilege to work alongside. Finding great people was the IT factor with K9 and with prior companies. Everyone hired over the 5-year span is still with the company and has each grown within their roles. Combining the IT factor with Tim’s connections to the franchise industry, and the support of recruiting mentors started the creation of Franchise Hire. Created by franchise people, for franchise people to connect great people to great brands.
