Family Financial Centers, LLC (FFC), a network of community-based financial service centers that offers financial services that include check cashing, bill payment, money orders, wire transfers, gift card buy back, pre-paid debit cards, and direct deposit.
Several FFC locations are owned and operated by women. In fact, 24% of FFC franchisees are women. This diverse group of women are from all over the world. The majority are from the United States, however, one of our franchisees is from Argentina, one from Cambodia, and one from Korea. These women own locations in various areas of the country and are each making an impact as a franchisee. Being a business owner in today’s world has proven to be a challenge and many businesses were affected when the pandemic struck. Fortunately, our proven franchise model was deemed an essential business thus allowing all of our stores to remain open. All of our female franchisees not only remained open during the pandemic, but they are thriving and successful! While one of them is already a multi-unit franchisee, two more are getting ready to branch out and become multi-unit franchisees! This is a true testament to our proven system!
Jack Wilson, Chief Development Officer at FFC says, “It’s not surprising that our proven model helps FFC attract and retain women seeking business ownership. They appreciate the training, on-going support, and the ability to enjoy some of the most robust margins in franchising. We are proud to say that the women owners in our “Family” have not only proven to be successful but are also a valuable asset to the chain. Our franchisees, both women and men, are the foundation of our business and we are happy to recognize their success. If anyone is considering franchise ownership and is interested in an FFC franchise, please give me a call at 877-236-5508.”
Family Financial Centers help small business customers accelerate their cash flow to make payroll and retain their valuable employees through commercial check cashing services, with in-store and mobile check cashing options available.
The Family Financial Centers franchise was designed to be an alternative to rapidly disappearing neighborhood branch banks to serve the unbanked, the underbanked, small businesses and the more than 50% of Americans living paycheck-to-paycheck. “Because of our proven operating procedures, we continue to expand into new areas. Our financial service centers have the sophistication and professionalism of a larger corporation, yet also have the personal touch of a traditional bank”, comments Paul Eckert, Founder and CEO of Family Financial Centers.
