Scaling Nonprofits for Social Good with David Keil, Founder of Franchise For Good

Franchise Euphoria Podcast

David Keil, President of Franworth, joins the podcast today and he has flipped the traditional sense of franchise industry giveback on its head. Having extensive experience in the franchise space, previously serving as CEO for Haagen-Dazs Shoppes, HoneyBaked Ham, Pure Barre and The Lash Lounge, Keil has recently embarked on his newest mission – Franchise For Good. 

In 2020, Keil founded Franchise For Good, the nonprofit division of Franworth, with the vision of helping nonprofit companies scale and expand their impact by leveraging the franchising model. He has discovered that the best way franchising can give back is by using its own scaling best practices to help nonprofits grow. Fast forward to now, Franchise For Good is making incredible strides, growing its nonprofit partnership roster to four remarkable organizations looking to scale for social good.

With over 3,700 franchise systems throughout the United States, the franchise model has proven operating system tools and playbooks in areas such as strategy, finance, operations and more that have assisted in scaling businesses in every market. By leveraging this model, along with Franworth’s 450 years of combined experience, nonprofits can strategically scale and continue to impact millions of lives.

Started listening to Josh's podcast after the wife and I decided to buy a franchise and I quickly went through about 200 episodes on 1.5x & 2x, before signing on to purchase a franchise. Josh's info was an invaluable part of our decision to buy, and after listening to so many episodes, I felt like I knew and trusted him on a personal level, so it was a no-brainer to enlist his services when it came time to review the franchise agreement. Josh was super easy to talk to and very empathetic to our needs, and being first time business owners, we needed all the empathy we could get. Josh helped us negotiate a great deal with the franchisor and we were very happy with his services. Great podcast, great guy, great service to anyone involved in the franchise world!
