Franchise Opportunity – Why Listo?

“Currently we are looking to concentrate our growth efforts in the States of California, Arizona, Texas and Miami. For the right individual we would consider areas outside of these states. We are primarily looking for those with the goal to open multiple locations rather than just a single unit. If financially a single unit is someone’s only option, then based on their business background and qualifications we would consider granting a single unit license.”Founder: Clayton Cathcart, EA
